Right in the heart of the Candover Valley is The Yard, a cafe offering a unique location for a coffee, food and curated special events.
The stunning chic converted barn, outdoor yard and friendly, relaxed atmosphere are just a couple of the reasons you’ll fall in love with the place.
I spent a morning tucking into savoury treats, sipping coffee and enjoying the sun as the farm’s resident swallows ducked and dived over my head.
Here’s why I’d urge you to travel into the centre of Hampshire to discover The Yard…

Mi Cocina is one of the good things to have come out of the lockdown of 2020.

The food is simply incredible, take a look…

The Great Hall in Winchester is home to one of the greatest symbols of medieval mythology…King Arthur’s Round Table!
Surrounded by the remains of Winchester Castle, built by William the Conquerer no less, it is an iconic piece of the city that’s tucked away at the top of the high street.
It’s definitely another tick off the bucket list for me and I am so glad I found it, I’m not a big history buff but, King Arthur’s table is seriously impressive!

ad* Nestled in the leafy Hampshire village of Otterbourne is the beautiful country pub and restaurant The Old Forge.
It’s recently just opened after undergoing a major transformation and I fell in love with the dreamy velvet, rich tones and metallic finishing touches.
This in addition to the open fireplaces, exposed brickwork and low beamed ceilings make it the perfect winter hideaway!
The mix of traditional English pub and luxury interior is a winning combination and I am so into its cosy vibes. With the festive season kicking in, it’s good to have a few places like up your sleeve when you’re looking for places to visit with friends and family.
I was invited to take a look around and try the new menu, take a look…
