Say It With Brownies - Mmmmmm just finishing off a wonderful box of freshly baked hand made chunky fudge and white chocolate chip brownies from Island based sayitwithbrownies.co.uk, they are just divine, the packaging is really lovely and they deliver anywhere - the perfect gift for a chocoholic like me!

Mmmmm, feeling really sleepy after a delicious birthday lunch at The Taverners, Godshill. Defeated by their amazing Lemon Meringue! What better way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon :) Love their dedication to using only seasonal Island produce. A must if you’re visiting. Thanks Grandad! xxx http://www.thetavernersgodshill.co.uk/

Ventnor is one of our favourite places on the Island. Definitely a Caledon recommendation for a day out: mooch round the Botanical Gardens, lunch in the cafe there, gorgeous chunky sarnies and lovely risotto. Kids loved the playground and feeding the fish. Walk along the coastal path to Ventnor beach with breathtaking sea views, passing through the idyllic Steephill Cove - a real gem of a place. Minghella ice cream on the esplanade and a paddle in the sea. One great day out, thank you sunshine :)

As a guest recently pointed out, a great way to get directly from Cowes to Newport is the cycle path, a flat 4 mile track that starts just up the road from The Caledon. It follows the old railway track and is really pretty in places looking out over the River Medina and completely avoids the traffic on the Newport Road. I often go for a run with our dog Charlie along here, but hadn’t really considered recommending it before now, so definitely one to bear in mind! Great for a walk, run, cycle as are all the other cycle paths that follow the old railway tracks on the Island. Have a look here http://www.cyclewight.org.uk/routes.html for inspiration!

Just how fab did our lovely Queen look yesterday? She came to see us in Cowes on what was the last day of her Jubilee tour. Cowes was absolutely buzzing, amazing weather and sooo many people turned up waving their flags, it was a fantastic day to be part of, definitely one to remember :)

P.S. Thanks to Jo for the close up pic of the queen, we didn’t get quite that close!

Congratulations to Mark, Rob and Joe on cycling 100km round the Island yesterday! The Isle of Wight Randonnee had record numbers of cyclists this year, over 2500 taking part. It was pretty cold and windy but the boys did us proud!

If you think you might fancy having a go, the British Heart Foundation are hosting the next event on Saturday September 29th. Register now and book your room with us. We’ll be sure to look after you and your weary bones after your ride :o)

Andrea is considering training up and giving it a go - I’ve never cycled more than 20 miles before so it’ll be a challenge! Come and join me! xx

A big thank you to Gordon from The Wight Wood Company www.wightwood.co.uk for our lovely hand made shelves to house our jams. Beautifully made from reclaimed timber from a coastguards cottage on Ryde seafront! Love the history :)

We are also looking after a few satisfyingly chunky limited edition doorstops made from reclaimed Ryde Pier timber, yours to take home for £20.
