In recent years we have noticed a significant number of guests are not great breakfast lovers, and would be happier with room only accommodation. Maybe a lie in is more appealing then breakfast, or they are naturally not interested in eating until later in the day! With this in mind we have launched our ‘Room Only’ rates which sit alongside our traditional inclusive B&B rates ….. giving you more choice when booking a room.
Don’t worry breakfast lovers 🙂 – when you book our standard inclusive b&b rates as before, you will still enjoy our full award winning continental and cooked breakfast in the dining room. Or if you are in a hurry or leaving very early a take out breakfast bag can be left outside your door ready for the morning getaway.
Check out rates on our website or through the mainstream booking channels.
Check out our tasty cooked vegan breakfast, available all year round. We pride ourselves in our home cooking approach and quality locally sourced ingredients. Enjoy vegan sausages, roasted mushrooms and tomatoes, chickpea and potato hash, beans, homemade toast, juices, tea and coffee, or for something lighter – smashed avocado on toast
We have a mid week January discount of 10% available off some of our comfortable accommodation, so treat yourself and book in 🙂
To get in the mood for the summer season, we are having BBQ Friday in the Fourwinds garden on the 24th May for our B&B and camping guests to enjoy.
Many of our lovely B&B and camping guests will be arriving on the evening of Friday 24th for the bank holiday weekend, and spending time getting settled, pitching tents, unpacking and starting to relax – it seems like the perfect time to let someone else do the cooking that night!
Our BBQ plates come with home prepared salads, buns and a variety of meats, veggie and vegan bbq delights and are £6.00 for an adult plate and £4.00 for a junior . If you are staying with us that weekend and want to book in or want more info – call us on 01354 658737 or email email@example.com
Fire, fragrant smoke, mouth watering food smells, sunny days, and a cold glass of something ……. its no wonder we love to BBQ!
Our love of social outdoor cooking has grown tremendously with 9 million bbq occasions reported * in 1997 compared to an estimated 137 million occasions in 2019! Its no wonder that the 2019 National BBQ week is going to be as popular as its previous 22. My BBQ loving husband is very excited that he has an excuse to BBQ for 7 days in a row! …… happy days. At Fourwinds Campsite we are really looking forward to the lovely smells emanating from campers BBQs throughout the summer.
There is so much choice when it comes to portable BBQ equipment. Are you a traditional charcoal BBQ’er (is that a word?!) or more of a gas fan? Do you like to slow cook it, char it or smoke it?
If like us, you are a charcoal fan, we love the portable Weber Kettle BBQ with good Weber design features including a ‘tuck n carry’ lid lock and rust resistant damper. Looks smart and lasts well and fits easily in your car. Being a Weber its not the cheapest but good quality.
Gas is convenient, instant and cleaner then charcoal and we like the Cadac Safari Chef best. It’s branded as ‘compact but mighty’ and we agree. It comes with all the bells and whistles you would expect from a household gas BBQ but has folding legs and sturdy carry bag making it truly portable.
For something a little different try a Smoker. We were invited out recently for lunch and the meat was cooked in the outdoor smoker. The pork and chicken we had were so succulent and flavoursome we were impressed. That unit was a large Weber Smoker, not suitable for camping, but we have found this portable Callow Smoker and the reviews look pretty good along with the price. If anyone has one, let us know how well it works for camping trips. Smoking takes a lot longer then it grilling on a BBQ, so you would need to keep keep an eye on it for longer … another excuse to kick back with several glasses of something cold me thinks …….. shame! 🙂
Last but not least in our little homage to BBQ kit, what about going back to basics with a griddle over a camp fire? At Fourwinds we have some pitches with campfire bowls, which if you know how, will enable you to cook directly over the fire. We found this Pioneer grill, which looks good to us. There is an art in cooking over a campfire – you should wait for the flames to die down and cook over the embers to ensure the food is not over blackened and is cooked through properly, Also it is always advisable to have a good pair of fire gloves as you are cooking so close to the fire .… not too many glasses of something cold while you are concentrating on the fire then! 😦
So what are you waiting for? …. we had our first bbq of the year one chilly February night (ok we did eat it indoors, but hey!!)
Come, camp and BBQ at our Fourwinds Campsite in Cambridgeshire and have some fun in the Fens 🙂
