• Our Latest Working Model under the ‘New Normal’

    Well, we’ve been open now just over 4 weeks and are adapting to the ‘New Normal’

    The Welsh Government have allowed us to open our Dining Room , and so, we are back to serving breakfasts in here, albeit, slightly differently.

    Instead of the glorious breakfast buffet, which was your first course, we now serve this directly from the kitchen for you.

    You still have all the choice, but rather than actually help yourself, you choose what you would like and we bring it to you.

    It’s  not the same, but of course, the food does still taste delicious-check out what one of our recent guests said!

    And then, once you have finished your first course, we then deliver to you, your hot, main dish-again served directly from the kitchen for you.

    Our guests have been very pleased with how we are adapting, and I don’t feel it’s impacting too much.

    Maybe the biggest change is that we now have set eating times, to ensure we can maintain social distancing, by only having 2 tables in the dining room at any one time. So, when you arrive, you can choose from the available time slots which one you would like.

    As far as your rooms go, once you have checked in, we are not entering again until you have checked out, and so, should you need anything topped up whilst on your stay, you can let us know and we will pop whatever you require in a box and leave outside your room, ready for when you return.

    That seems to be going ok with our guests to date too!

    We have an e-guest in room book now, instead of the book you may have flicked through once you’re in your room, and we send you a link to that before you arrive, so you can start to get excited about your stay even more now!

    If you’re ready to book your stay, then click here and choose your dates, we’d love to see you!

    Homemade Granola

     

    There’s nothing like homemade Granola. You can make it to your own liking, add whichever fruit you want (or not) and is so much better for you than the supermarket ones.

    Guests at the B&B LOVE our recipe and I share it here with you now..

    How safe are you?

    How Safe Are you?

    There is plenty of hype going on around the Corona virus at the moment, driven in no small way by the media. There are stats around showing that the ‘ordinary’ flu virus we deal with every year, still kills more than this virus does, and yet, do we go into a melt down about the flu virus each year?

    No.

    But how safe are you?

    When to visit Pembrokeshire?

    When to visit Pembrokeshire?

    Well, that’s a question.

    I love the seasons, I love to see the changes and I look forward to certain things happening at certain times of the year.

    As I write this(February) I have already enjoyed watching the first snowdrops appear-there are certain places in Pembrokeshire where you will have a wall of snowdrops and I do love to go visit these.

    Five Benefits of Being Outside

    Oh, the Benefits of Being Outside!

    One of my beliefs for years has been the benefits of being outside, getting fresh air and in particular, sea air or woodland air, great big gulps of it into your lungs.

    It’s something I encourage all my guests here at Fields Lodge Boutique B&B to do at least once-go out for a lovely walk, no matter what the weather! It’s just so good for you.

    I’m delighted now, that there seems to be ‘real’ evidence to prove this now. Even just recently,the BBC programme, ‘Trust me I’m a Doctor’ undertook an experiment to evidence this in real terms.

    It was proved that a 20 minute stint out in nature was beneficial to mind and body and the ‘guineau pigs’ also confirmed it was good for their soul too.

    What to do on Poor Weather Days in Pembrokeshire

    What to do on Poor Weather days in Pembrokeshire through the winter months

    There’s a perception that the weather in Wales is always bad., always raining.
    Even I used to think that, when I worked in my corporate job, so following on here are some of my favourite ideas of things to do on poor weather days in Pembrokeshire.

    Importantly, what I have learned, from taking more notice of our weather, so that I can effectively advise guests, is that, that perception is wrong!

    There are not THAT many days where, when we have ‘poor’ weather, that it’s in for the whole day. The weather does tend to come in and go out with the tides (I’m taking real old wives tales here!) and on bad weather days, that does give you some comfort.

    In fact, it’s quite often true- ‘rain before 7(am), gone by 11(am)’. Guests have thought me a weather witch doctor when I have assured them that would happen on a particular day!

    But, what to do if the weather is bad, and, for this, I am thinking more about the winter months here. If you’re looking for some summer months inspiration then check out my ideas here.

  • Dean - Henry Tudor

    Henry Tudor Lands at Mill Bay

    Henry Tudor landed at Mill Bay on 7th August 1485 (534 years ago). He marched from here to Bosworth to ultimately take the Crown at the Battle of Bosworth from Richard III and this was the start of the Tudor Dynasty. He was only 28!

    We have hosted a lovely gentleman called Dean today who is literally walking in Henry’s footsteps and is making the trek from Mill Bay to Bosworth. He plans to arrive in Bosworth 534 years t the day that Henry arrived. What a fabulous journey to make. He is walking for two purposes, he studied History at Oxford and concluded that Henry VII was our greatest Monarch and having just retired, felt he has both the time and fitness to pay homage to his great achievement. Dean is also Type 1 Diabetic, so his walk will also raise about £2,000 for Diabetes UK-what a great thing to do!

  • Getting a Good Nights sleep

    How to get a good night’s sleep

    How to get a good Night’s Sleep

    Bed and Breakfast…the two things you have to excel at, if you’re looking to run a successful establishment and create a great ambience for your guests. Sleep has so many repercussions into daily life, it’s a massively important topic for me.

    The importance of Sleep

    So, what’s my take on the importance of sleep…

    Having spent a vast amount of time in my previous career travelling and therefore spending many nights in strange beds, I am a keen advocate of getting a good nights sleep.
    And why is this? Well, years ago I noticed quite starkly how a poor night’s sleep impacted on my performance, behaviour and appetite during the following day. This is way before the internet and social media came on the scene. Just saying that is weird now though—can you imagine the world without those two things now??
    Anyway, before the vast amount of information now available to us to advise us how important a good nights sleep is, I had worked it out for myself!
