    Skomer Island-Arriving

    Arriving on the Island

    The boat will ferry you to the set down point on the island. Depending on whether the tide is low or high, will dictate how many steps you will have to climb. Once you’re at the top, the island is pretty flat, but to get up to the top there are quite a few steps to negotiate.

  • Skomer Island-Getting to Martins Haven Car Park

    Getting To Martins Haven

    To get to Martins Haven from us here at Fields Lodge is a very easy drive; you come out of the B&B and head to the lane junction.

    You then take a left and go down the hill, at the bottom of the hill you will see a sign post for DALE, just follow this road, don’t come off it at all.

  • BOOK DIRECT

    Always get the Best Deal when you Book Direct

    I’m writing this today for a reason.

    Because a lovely, frequent guest made me realise, that although I write often to my guests, to keep them updated on what’s going on here and any offers I have, I have never ACTUALLY pointed out the importance of booking direct through our own website.

    Apologies!

  • Welsh Cakes-THE traditional food of Wales

    Homemade Welsh Cakes

    I love a Welsh Cake! We grew up with them, living in Wales, I guess you would! So, I was surprised to find out, that, outside of Wales, unless you’ve been or have a connection to Wales, that you wouldn’t know what a Welsh Cake was!

    There are many different recipes for Welsh Cake, as it was a family recipe handed down. I always prefer simple, and so I thought I’d share mine with you….

  • My Favourite Top Five Kitchen Gadgets

    What can’t you do without in the kitchen??

    Having been creating Award Winning Breakfasts in the B&B here for many years now, there are a few things that I just couldn’t live without. A tad drastic a statement, you may say, but some of these items, I would struggle to produce the award winning breakfasts we have become so well known for.

    My Top Five

    1. Silicone Griddle Pad

    Silicone Sheet
    Silicone Sheet

    This is a life saver–we use it on the cooler top ring on the Aga, and here, oil free, we can cook eggs and pancakes, we can crisp up bacon and brown off tomatoes. We also use another type of silicone sheet to keep the Aga lid clean, but I can live without if needs be, by replacing that by a tea towel!

    2. Apple Corer & Peeler

    Who knew there was such an invention! I stumbled across one of these just this year, but it has made our life here much easier!

    We like to make lots of homemade chutneys with all the homegrown we have-=between out trees here and the ones down the lane at our neighbours, we have bags and bags of apples for making lots of lovely different types of chutney. One of my favourites is an apple & date chutney and I do try to make them all without refined sugar, some use dates, others Xylitol, just to mix it up a bit.

    This contraption, peels and cores and slices in one go-a marvellous invention. If I was super critical, it peels fairly thickly, so you’re left with apple spaghetti! As long as you’re quick, you can chop this up and add to a salad for a little sweetness, I do hate to throw any food away!

    Here’s a Facebook Live I did when I trialled it for the first time–have fun!

    3. A Breadmaker

    Although we make artisan breads by hand and then cook these in the Aga–the more common loaf-the basic white and wholemeal loaf, that we go through plenty of, we do make these in a breadmaker. This means we can get on with all the other thigs we need to cook whilst the breadmaker is taking care of itself. Over the years, we have gone through a few models, we are currently using a Panasonic, which is doing a great job for us, and with it being a more upmarket make, spare parts are readily available.

    And why I love making bread?? The same reason as why I love making other things-you know what you’re putting in it, you know what you’re eating and that way you can make sure you’re eating as healthily as possible. As an example, our sourdough loaf has 3 ingredients in it, one supermarket loaf of bread I looked at the other day, had 32 ingredients on the back of it, some of which I didn’t recognise as food at all!

    4. An Egg Boiler

    Egg boiler
    Egg boiler

    Maybe an extra gadget in some households, but for us here, not having to keep an eye on eggs boiling when you’re busy cooking other things is a relief. This little gadget, not expensive, will cook your eggs to the desired consistency-hard, soft or medium, and buzzes once the eggs are ready for perfect eggs & soldiers-just writing this is making me fancy that now! and of course, for me, it’s gluten free bread, for my soldiers!

    5. Garlic/Ginger& Parmesan Grater

    Something that looks like a saucer that you’d put olives in to pick at, is one of my favourite gadgets. This nobbly saucer grates all of the above–no peeling garlic, just rub it on the nobbles. No peeling Ginger-just rub away and parmesan is just as simple, and what’s great, is that it doesn’t take up much space at all. A great find, and we now sell these here at Fields Lodge, so if you want one, just email me!

     

    What are the gadgets you can’t live without? I could quite easily list a few more without thinking too long!

    Let me know, I’d love to hear from you.

    Happy Cooking!

  • Crempog

    Welsh Pancakes-Crempog

    Wales is well know for cooking on a griddle, a large metal flat skillet(no sides)–it’s where our Welsh Cakes were traditionally made and are still made today in many houses.

    Now, I love a pancake and a Welsh Cake but as you may (or may not) know, I am on a food journey to be sugar, dairy and wheat free.

    I couldn’t possibly do without my pancakes, especially on Pancake Day, or any other day I fancy them actually!

    So, to help me and my lovely guests that are on their own food journeys, we now offer Pancakes that are wheat and sugar free and as we are in Wales, it’s only right to call them by their Welsh name-Crempog, or Crempogau, for plural.

    You can see this recipe and many more from our award winning breakfasts in our Recipe Book Here

    Almond Griddle Pancakes (Crempogau)

    Ingredients

    To make 2 servings
    125g ground almonds
    60ml water
    2 eggs
    1 tbsp maple syrup (you can use1 Tbsp Xylitol instead, should you wish)
    ¼ tsp salt
    1 tsp oil

    Method

    • Mix all the ingredients together, add more water if required to achieve a dropping consistency
    • Using a dessert spoon, spoon the mixture onto the griddle in circular portions (use a frying pan rubbed with olive oil or coconut oil if you don’t have a griddle)
    • Turn each pancake when bubbles appear and the edges are cooked
    • Serve with yoghurt, honey, chopped walnuts and your choice of fruit
