The Yardarm (and cake)

Oh, it's good to be back.  Having a lovely time catching up with everybody.  And isn't this week just fab?  I feel like we've concentrated a whole summer's worth of sunshine and joy into the last 7 days.  The sun has shone and the coast is glorious.

How good of you to remember that we have embarked on a little venture in the House of NKK.

 The Yardarm has been open for business for a few months now.  We welcomed our first guests for Easter.

And then it rained.  And rained.  And rained some more.  Nobody came and it was awful.

Thankfully, it picked up after that and we have been busy all Summer.

In September, Aldeburgh is at its loveliest.  With the kids gone back to school, the Summer rush is dying down, but there's still plenty to do.

Thought you might be tempted to come and see for yourself. The Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival is a two day feast at the end of September (29th and 30th), with fringe events running in nearby locations over the following two weeks.  And to get you in the mood, when you arrive at The Yardarm, you'll find a decent bottle of wine.  And cake.  Specifically, this cake.

Come and stay.  For the food festival.  Or anytime.  It would be lovely to have you here.


P.S. Normal blogging will resume shortly.  Hope you don't mind the shameless plug in the meantime....


  1. That's what blogs are for! Shameless plugs about all sorts of nice things that we wouldn't otherwise discover. Your place looks so very tempting - I am hoping and planning already!

  2. Hello hello, how lovely to see you back in the virtual world! I love your decorating skills, it all looks so lovely and relaxing, I can imagine curling up on the sofa with some knitting. The food festival sounds awesome, yum yum yum. - Annie

    1. All those hours drooling over interior books haven't quite gone to waste! The sofa looks out onto a courtyard garden which is south facing so there'd Be lots of light to knit by. :)

  3. The Yardarm looks marvellous, I shall try to get Himself to make time for a holiday - just don't hold your breath!

    1. Oh, thanks! These things take time, I know. Come anytime. C.x

  4. What an amazing place!!! I need to come visit...if only just for a piece of that cake!!!! JOY! xoxo

  5. Oh that does look lovely.

    Alas we are five and not two as it looks like such a lovely place to stay.

    Good luck with it all and welcome back,
