How to do Thor’s Cave Walk. An easy walk in the Peak District

Thor’s Cave is a fantastic walk in the Peak District! Thor’s Cave walk is a fairly easy and short walk. It’s exciting, especially for children because of its mystical name and very cool location, because Thor’s Cave is not a normal cave on ground level or below ground. It is actually up high at the top of a hill! Thor’s Cave is a natural cavern set in Limestone Crag located in the South of the Peak District....

8 unique places for glamping in Devon for couples that are romantic!

From Shepherd’s Huts to Yurts, glamping in Devon offers an experience to connect with nature and enjoy this wonderful county.. which let’s face it, can often be overlooked and passed through on the way to Cornwall!

16 beaches near Cardiff to visit

What are the best beaches near Cardiff? And what beaches in Cardiff are there? These are common questions because of Cardiff’s location right on the ocean on the South Coast of Wales.

I had plans to be at the beaches near Cardiff all the time not realising that there are not a huge amount of nice beaches around...

How to do a Cornwall road trip from London & 12 places to stop on route

Cornwall is the top UK holiday destination and a Cornwall Road Trip from London is a great idea! Not only because you will get to see a lot of amazing places along the South of England whilst on the way to Cornwall from London, But trains from London to Cornwall can be quite pricey and you’ll need a car once you get to Cornwall to get around and see the best places in Cornwall, so you might as well just drive from London, or hire a car in London and see some new places in the UK on the way!...
