The Launch of the pop up.......

Our new Pop ups

August saw our first pop up in the Barn. Millie our daughter suggested she entered the Hampshire Art Open Studio event and that we could do a pop up coffee stop alongside. Never ones to think about it for too long, that’s just what we did and had an extremely successful 10 days. Baking reams of cakes, having artists drop by for workshops, viewing and buying the art & cyclists, walkers taking a break on their routes, and serving endless pour over coffees - Pauls new found hobbie. On the back of all that we have now launched a monthly event!

Our coffee stop will open the last Friday, Saturday & Sunday in each

month, see our pop ups page on our website for all the latest news or sign up to our newsletter for shoutouts.

After we had several groups of cyclists, Paul has constructed smart bike racks and Owens Cycles has loaned us a rather flash tool station for our weekends. Our rustic barn, welcomes muddy walkers and wet cyclists for a refuel while out and about. You can simply drive here too, sit in one of our comfy sofas and while a way a morning reading, catching up with friends and simply having some time out away from the hubbub of home.

We serve freshly ground pour over coffee, Hamptons organic teas, soft drinks, and a large selection of homemade cakes (& the odd savoury pastry too).

Our September pop up coincides with Macmillans coffee morning, so for the Friday we shall be donating all proceeds from the sale of cakes and biscuits to Macmillan, what a great excuse to head this way. On the Saturday Millie will hold mini hourly pen and ink workshops, have a go for £12 and £10 will go to Macmillan. No need to book simply come along any when between 10 and 4. On Sunday simply come and have a go at one of the many board games we will have scattered on the tables and make a donation.

Winter weekend away

Summer is over but the holidays don't have to stop - why not

book a winter weekend away? We can arrange activities from Fizz tasting at the Hambledon Vineyard, day trips to Winchester, hiring electric bikes and Pilates and yoga sessions. Or simply come for some peace and tranquility and a couple of lazy days by the fire. Book direct on our website for 2 nights or more in our b&b rooms between November and March excluding Christmas and New Year and add the code BLOGFIZZ for a free bottle of Hambledon Fizz www.hambledonvineyard.co.uk .
