Evening meals, for the Wednesday I’ll be cooking a Moroccan style lamb tagine served with a Mediterranean vegetable couscous and on Thursday it will be the much celebrated  hearty Italian Farmhouse Soup with a selection of cold Italian meats and olive bread.

Breakfast, served on Thursday and Friday morning, a traditional full English Breakfast, but not Kippers. Coffee, Tea, Toast and fresh Orange Juice.

Packed Lunch, you will need to bring along something for Wednesday, and build one from a selection of ingredients, bread, ham, turkey, cheese, crisps, fruit, biscuits, fruit juice etc. on Thursday.

Accommodation, for this excursion I’m booking the larger 4 bedroomed bunkhouse, in order to provide a larger communal lounge, kitchen and dining area.

Drinks, please bring along something to enjoy during the evenings. The nearest pub is the The Hollybush, with its dodgy domino set it’s a dark walk away of just over 1 mile.

Other Stuff, you will need to bring a towel and a maybe a bath robe as the bathroom in the bunkhouse is not en-suite. Torches,as it’s a dark walk to the pub.
