Here at Tythebarn House we’ve seen a new trend in how guests prefer to breakfast.
Last year we saw a big move towards a light ‘Breakfast on a Tray’ and away from the more traditional ‘Full English’. As a result we’re going with the trend and the booking system now features our guests’ favourite ways to start the day, ‘Catering for yourself’ in your own little kitchen and the added extra of ordering ‘Breakfast on a Tray’.
‘Breakfast on a Tray’ will be brought to your room, or served on a bright sunny morning in our courtyard Garden Pod.

“Did you shake the Sloes?” is a daily question once the clocks have turned back at Tythebarn House, referring to the autumn ritual of reaching up and shaking the sloe gin bottles. A little sip from time to time doesn’t go unnoticed, “leave some for those cold winter walks.”

It’s a stormy Saturday morning , the fire’s crackling and glowing in the wood burner at Tythebarn House B&B, the leaves on the Russ have turned the most glorious autumn colours, the clocks have turned back and it’s time to bake Yorkshire Parkin.
There’s something comforting about the rhythm of recipes through the seasons, and this one, reminiscent of bonfire night as a child, fits with November. We had a family bakery, so it was Dad who came home from work with the soft and sticky Parkin for tucking into after hot dogs around the bonfire.
This year mine has three days to mature before the 5th, when we wrap up warm, walk down to The Smithy Inn for the village display, then back to feast on Cake! The slightly crisp top turns sticky and soft and the spices mellow and combine with treacle to give that unforgettable ‘bonfire night’ flavour. Continue reading “Sticky Parkin and a Log Fire.”
A Sunshine Summer at last at Tythebarn House B&B and our allotment raspberries are loving it. The picking season had only just swung in to action the day I picked these and I had no bag with me. Having watched Rick Stein’s India the evening before I took a tip from another land and tucked them inside a large cabbage leaf to carry home.
The great thing about this perfect jam fruit is it’s so easy, there’s no peeling or stalk removing once picked. Just a quick rinse, then on to the scales, layer up with the sugar and leave your glorious pink, pan full of goodness to itself for a few hours.

….. how green you are, how green you are, how green”
As children we played a singing game using these words. At family gatherings the after dinner-game was to hide an object somewhere around the room. The singing began and the searcher, usually one of the children, came into the room and started the hunt. The closer they got to discovering the item the louder the singing became, reaching a crescendo at the find.
Those words now have a whole new meaning in our environmentally conscious world.
Remembering those family events and humming the tune to myself I wandered around our B&B thinking about ‘How Green’ we are.
With a smile, I realized it all began with our home, Tythebarn House B&B , recycled from a redundant farm building!
