Just Add Ice!

What a treat today as Nene Valley Spirits opened its doors as Peterborough’s first micro-distillery in the Nene Valley region, offering handcrafted, premium gin in small batches. Jo, Leigh, Abi and Shelley are located in the newly renovated Artisan Courtyard area at Sacrewell Farm and Country Park. A place where more small businesses will be located - a great idea. It's an extra treat today as it's Christmassy with Santa's sleigh and cottage just around the corner, a large Christmas tree in the courtyard and I was lucky enough to spy a peacock wandering around too. Anyway enough of

Nothing Beats Chocolate

Looking for a few early Christmas presents I went up to the newly-opened (well 10 weeks ago) Stamford Heavenly Chocolates new shop at Sacrewell Farm. Tucked away in the corner of Sacrewell Farm's new Courtyard area, it looks a very nice improvement on their Stamford location. The waft of sweetness hits you as you walk in the shop and you're greeted with an array of chocolate items everywhere along with a bit of sparkle, a Christmas tree, a reindeer and of course a Santa Claus! Ho, Ho, Ho. They've now got lots of space which includes a huge area

Go Adventuring at Sacrewell

Take the **FIRST LOOK*** at Sacrewell Farm & Country Centre’s new outdoor play area.... The ribbon was cut today (Friday 23rd October) by Jane Scriven who is the chair of trustees from the William Scott Abbott Trust. She is so pleased that Sacrewell can now offer such a wonderful adventure area for children to play in as well as exploring the rest of the park. Ticket sales for the area will be available shortly, it’s not quite finished today due to the bad weather, which means that it will be socially controlled with not too many children in one

What a glorious afternoon of sunshine to have had the wonderful opportunity of trying out the new electrically- powered ‘Wyndham’ boat trip at Nene Park Ferry Meadows, getting for its launch next week. ‘Captain James’ was at the helm of this lovely little boat on Overton Lake with Oliver telling us all about the details and future plans. You can have a ride on the lake next week and then it will be put away to reopen at Easter 2021. The trip starts off at the jetty opposite the visitor centre where you will be able to sanitise your

Scoot Over! Coyotes are in Town

2020-09-25T16:06:14+01:00September 25th, 2020|Adults Only, Events, General, New Restaurants, News, Uniqueness|

What a treat today as finally I get a FIRST LOOK at the finished Coyotes Bar & Grill in town located behind the market and I have to say it’s looking gooood. . I spoke with John, a born and bred Peterboroughian, about what him and his partner Neil have planned for you all and it sounds great.   One of the first thing's you'll notice when you go in is Old Humphrey Bogart sitting proudly on the wall watching over the coffee machines and greets you when you come in, but look up and you've got a sky

Stop the Train!!!

2020-09-22T18:57:43+01:00September 22nd, 2020|Escapologists!, Fun-for-all, General, News, Uniqueness|

We've not been out for a long time to do an Escape room, however, this brand new one was too much of an enticement for us. Hourglass Escape Room has only just opened at the Focus Centre on Chesnut Avenue in Dogsthorpe. It has been created and is run by two long-term escape room enthusiasts Della-Marie and James - who by the way, built this room single-handed. Their room is called Unstoppable: Your train from Kings Cross is in trouble and you’re the only people who can stop it before disaster hits at Peterborough! They've already had a bunch

All Mashed Up

2020-08-31T14:12:49+01:00August 30th, 2020|General, Great Food, News|

After being recommended by my neice for food and trying them about a month ago for myself, I eventually got the chance to meet the people behind Mashed Up. Friday we were invited to meet Chris & Matthew to take a look and taste a few bits. They both started up their street food business form their brightly coloured food trailer in 2019 aimed at covering events and food festivals. It was all working very well and in January moved into some shared premises at Fengate with more space and scope for BBQ and comfort food at home and

Just Grazing…

2020-08-27T14:38:33+01:00August 27th, 2020|General, Great Food, Great For Kids, New Restaurants, News, Uniqueness|

There's a little hidden gem that you need to know about situated at Orton Southgate which will fill your belly with goodies galore whether eating in or delivered to home. Dorinda started her Gaze & Graze business back in February working from home with her little one Noah. She offered takeaway boxes of food that you can basically pick on all day long. Lockdown came and instead of her businesses taking a step back it took a step up. Deliveries to homes were flying out her door. Dorinda moved to out-of-home premises to keep up with demand and now

Meet Eddy & Gucci

2020-08-12T09:39:37+01:00August 8th, 2020|General, News, Uniqueness|

Meet Gucci! Actually, this little cutie won’t be cutting your hair, trimming your beard or doing a shave, it will in fact be Eddy or one of the other staff at Eddy Lady Barber. She’s moved from her premises in the town end of Lincoln Road and just opened up today at unit 9 in Rivergate. (plenty of parking too) Eddy Lady Barber comes complete with rotating and lit barber shop pole outside and really is a sight for sore eyes - with brightly coloured artwork, large comfy settees and light music 🎶 in the background. It’s got a totally

Too Busy Bee for Coffee?

2020-05-21T22:25:59+01:00May 19th, 2020|General, New Restaurants, News, Uniqueness|

Popped in to see Peter & Amy today who opened the new _thecoffeehive_ at Fletton just as the lockdown came about... what bad luck, however, they are now open and you can get coffees, teas and a few treats like brownies or chocolates too.   Loving the bee design that was created by Peter and painted on by Street Arts Hire Ltd... fits the shape perfectly. This triangular hub can be found on Fletton Avenue and is open every day from 9.30am to 3.30pm.   They’re serving up some great products too. First up is the Jute Coffee beans
