Redcliffe Farm – from Eggs to Hampers (and a bit more besides)

Redcliffe Farm – from Eggs to Hampers (and a bit more besides)

I'd be really surprised if there is anyone in the general area that hasn't heard of Redcliffe Farm. They have built a really solid reputation since they first established the shop in 2007 as THE go-to farm shop for quality, locally sourced fresh ingredients. The Cafe, is open all year round 7 days a week - open from 9am serves a perfect Eggs Benedict (not surprising given their origins - more later) but they are also renowned for a pretty scrummy Steak Pie too. Most of the favourites found in the cafe can also be found in the shop to…

The Ship Inn Sewerby, a Feast for the Senses

The Ship Inn Sewerby, a Feast for the Senses

As soon as I arrive in the car park and see the incredible view out to sea, I exhale and immediately feel relaxed. A squirrel bounces along in the small woodland in front of me, looking equally as happy, and I think yes, I'd be happy living here too. The grounds of The Ship Inn are spacious, yet when looking at the building, it still manages to feel welcoming and familiar. The place has a real feel of home, no doubt created by Charlie and Lou, who in the last 15 years have raised their family here and welcomed their…

Dixons – Filey

Has got the Bloomin lot! One of my wonderful friends had recently bought a house and was telling our group of friends, "if you are thinking of buying a present for me, can you get me a voucher from Dixons? I have seen the perfect oven in there; it's a SMEG oven", This was then followed by exciting tales of being able to whip up the perfect Christmas dinner and the obligatory pigs in blankets. Needless to say, her enthusiasm and multiple "it's amazing" made me chuckle because I'm not sure what my response would be if someone got me…

A step back in time. I was mesmerised standing outside the Owl and the pussycat shop in Whitby.Whoever had dressed the window had a natural talent for creativity and flair, and I couldn't wait to step inside. Wishing you a Merry Christmas As I browsed, I overheard a lady who was purchasing her items waxing lyrical about the window display and how she and her husband were due to go home the day before, however, they had stayed an extra night to enable them to visit this shop as it was closed the previous day.How wonderful, I thought, and I…
