• Alomnd & Raspberry Cake Bites

    Low Carb, gluten and sugar free heaven

    I’m busy in the kitchen today cooking up all sorts of goodies for this weekends’ guests. In the oven I have mixed berries reducing to a compote ready to make sugar free chia jam, low carb bread baking and yoghurt making on the kitchen top. To add to this, vegetarian sausage making and some low carb, sugar free cake bites for when the sweet tooth descends. It may sound a lot to be going on, but it’s quite a normal day in this B&B.

  • Puffin on Skomer

    Skomer Island Puffins

    It’s Puffin season on Skomer Island.

    The season lasts from April to the end of July roughly, and during that time Skomer Island is home to one of the largest populations of Puffins in the world. The Puffins come to Skomer to breed. Skomer Island is an ideal place for them as there are no land predators here, so the pufflings can be hatched and tended to in relative safety. May and early June, are for me, the best times to visit Skomer as this is the time when all the bluebells are out, turning the island into a carpet of blue-it is truly magical at this time.

    Gluten Free Bed & Breakfast in Pembrokeshire

    Gluten Free Bed and Breakfast Pembrokeshire

    Gluten Free in Pembrokeshire-there’s a move towards it definately. Here at our Bed and Breakfast in Pembrokeshire, we offer a good range of Gluten Free options-bread, sausages, cereals, cakes, health bars, ketchup-all Gluten Free. Many of you that have been following my posts will know that I am on a quest to eat more healthily. One of those strands of thought is to be Gluten Free. I have had various intolerance tests over the years and gluten has always come up as a ‘red’, plus I do feel unwell after eating too much of it-which isn’t hard these days, as gluten is in nearly everything that is processed.

    Pembrokeshire Beaches- The Best 5

    Pembrokeshire Beaches-what are the best 5 beaches?? What a question to answer, if you asked 10 people, you’d have 10 different answers. There are over 50 beaches on the Pembrokeshire Coast and I’ve been to most, I think there’s still one or two that I’m yet to visit. You tend to get your favourites and then stick to them!

    Well, here are my five with my own personal reasons for choosing them:

    World Health Day

    In support of  World Health Day  (7th April 2016), I thought it would be appropriate to share some of what we do here to promote health.

    As some of you may know, I am attempting to eat more healthily, cut down on sugar(well remove it really!), avoid wheat and gluten and generally follow the thinking that is coming out of research as to what constitutes a healthy diet, which is not necessarily what is coming out as advice from the NHS and the government. It’s not their fault, I think the NHS is such a huge ship, it takes a long time to change course, as opposed to us individuals who in comparison are little speed boats, and can zip around in a flash! That’s my way of thinking, anyway.

    Walking in Winter

    Walking in Winter in Pembrokeshire is as good as pleasure as in the summertime-the coast takes on a moody veil and the weather is sure to make you feel alive. So, as long as you are well prepared, there’s no need to leave walking until the sun comes out!

    Walking in Winter Checklist

    Personally I do not advocate walking when the weather is bad-howling rain and gales, but I think there’s nothing nicer than a fresh winter morning for a walk across the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which, just so happens to be on our doorstep. And, as it is winter, you do need to take a few extra precautions, just incase the weather does change quickly.

    Choosing our Toiletries

    New Dawn Organic Skin Care products are one of the amenities we provide to guests with our pleasure.

    My Favourite Pembrokeshire Beach

    My Favourite Pembrokeshire Beach

    We are spoilt for choice for beaches in Pembrokeshire- there are over 50 to choose from and Pembrokeshire is the Uk’s only true Coastal National Park. Miles of golden sand, red sans and grey to choose from -where do you start? I originally was going to write about my favourite 5 beaches, but after starting to write about my first favourite, I realised that this blog would just be way to long! So, today is just about my favourite beach-Sandy Haven.

    It’s Leap Year!

    Leap Year Day

    Leap year comes around every 4 years and has been traditionally known as the day that women can propose to men. I think these days, we’re a lot more relaxed about things like that-I don’t think women have to wait or feel they have to wait for a man to propose to them, but I’m a traditionalist, so for me,  I like the hearts and roses side of things-the man on one knee, etc, etc, etc!

    Fancy just getting away and having a holiday without a car? Isn’t is lovely to  have a real change from ‘normal’ life? I love going to different places-it doesn’t matter if it’s only a few days, the old adage ‘a change is as good as a rest’ is quite true, I find.

    Fields Lodge gets a new Website

    Have you seen our lovely new website for Fields Lodge??

    I’m guessing, as you’re on the blog, then you may have!

    However, that doesn’t preclude me from saying how great I think it is. I used to think my ‘old’ website was great, but now, I’m blown away with this one. I guess what was fashionable and IT functional 5 years ago is not what’s fashionable and functional today (although I have a few things remaining in my wardrobe from 5 years ago-maybe I could use that as an excuse to get a whole new ensemble?!?!).

    We have been suffering from great winds too, to compliment the rain, every day, practically, for over 2 months now. We ‘re deceptively high here, so we catch the wind coming straight in off the sea at the heads (St Ann’s Head).

  • Start with Why- Fields Lodge Bed and Breakfast

    Start with Why!

    I am often asked how I came to be running a Bed and Breakfast. So I thought it an opportune time to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) to share my journey. I have recently read a book by Simon Sinek, whose main thread to having a successful business was to explain ‘Why’ you did the things you did, so that people would ‘get’ you…so here goes!
