The Forest of Dean is well known as an area of natural beauty, but there are some extra hidden gems in the area where you can eat and drink! As part of the Forest of Dean Bloggers Weekend (organised by the local Tourism Association), I sampled a selection of culinary delights around the Forest of Dean. I…Read more Forest of Dean: Food & Drink
I was kindly contacted by Kitshack.com recently and asked to review a selection of their Autumn/Winter Buff collection. Being fairly new to the world of blogging, this was exciting! I chose a Buff for myself and Leo (Yep! They have a dog range! Although I didn't go for matching styles) and they sent it out!…Read more Product Review: Buff Headwear!
I recently bought a new pair of walking boots. I'll tell you about my experience visiting MountainFeet, a local shop in Marsden, near Huddersfield, where I was sold a pair of boots that were right for my feet. Walking Boots: Past and Present I've had a pair of walking boots for as long as I…Read more Local Business: MountainFeet
Wild Walks With Wine has been up and running for about six weeks now. I've had my ups and downs with it, but I thought I would tell you about some of the things I've learnt (and some things that I need to learn) through this whole process! The Idea I first started Wild Walks…Read more Finding My Feet…
This weekend's wild walk took us up the beautiful Northumberland coast to Seahouses for an 8 mile roundtrip to the historic Bamburgh, passing Bamburgh's iconic castle, and back again. We walked out along St Oswald's Way, stopped for lunch in Bamburgh and headed back to Seahouses on along the beach. This week Leo and I had…Read more Coastal Northumberland – Seahouses to Bamburgh

Phew! I'm knackered! And Leo is now curled up next to me on the sofa, so I think we can safely assume that he is too! Today we've been walking in Northumberland. I took Leo up to Hadrian's Wall, an historic Roman ruin site in Northumberland. This was by far our wildest, muddiest and most…Read more Wonder Wall?
So today I took Leo up to Amble in Northumberland for our 'wild walk'. Yesterday I checked various maps and guides and mismatched a couple of routes together, checked TripAdvisor to get an idea of where might be good to eat, and generally tried to come up with a bit of a plan because I've…Read more Amble-ing along
Well it felt like what could have gone wrong, all went wrong today. First of all I forgot to charge my camera, so halfway round the walk I ran out of battery! Rookie mistake. Try again next time! But that's not the end of the world; at the point where I lost battery, I can…Read more Alreyt Cock!
