Off The Rails Yarmouth

We managed to squeeze in another tea shop this morning with a visit to Off The Rails Yarmouth. It’s a lovely cafe in the old Yarmouth station. It’s a very picturesque spot.

The line was removed years ago but you can still walk along it.

As well as a cafe there is a bird lookout and cycle hire which is so tempting for another day.

We sat and enjoyed a cup of tea and did a bit of bird spotting.

Definitely somewhere to come back to another day.

A day out on the Isle of Wight

The weather was beautiful today so we decided to head to Carisbrooke Castle. They were running special Roundhead and Cavalier events so there was plenty of things for the children to get involved with.

The children loved walking up the steep steps to the top of the castle, the views were amazing. We walked around the walls before taking part in the Pike Drill and learning about the Battle of Naseby through the medium of vegetables!

Of course we had to stop for an ice cream at the aptly named Flakey McFlake Face ice cream van.

Then it was on to Quarr Abbey for a delicious cream tea.
