The New Forest and Hampshire County Show is less than 10 minutes down the road from us - it's a great family day out and both our chefs Luke Holder & Angela Hartnett will be doing a demo too! It's held on 30th, 31st July and 1st August at New Park, Brockenhurst in Hampshire. There's lots to do, learn and see.
Just over the way from us is the Isle of Wight (jump on the ferry from Lymington or Southampton) and join in Cowes Week sailing regatta - it's a fantastic day out, we can even make a picnic for you to take.
Since 1826 Cowes Week has played a key part in the British sporting summer calendar and is one of the UK's longest running and most successful sporting events. It now stages up to 40 daily races for around 1,000 boats and is the largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world.
The 8,500 competitors range from Olympic and world class professionals to weekend sailors. In excess of 100,000 spectators come to watch the sailing, enjoy the parties and live entertainment, and to experience the unique atmosphere. It is genuinely a one-of-a-kind event.
