Eyemouth is an ideal base for exploring the miles of deserted golden sands and secluded rocky coves that make up the stunning Berwickshire and Northumberland coastline.
Eyemouth’s High Street has a good range of local shops, including a delicatessen, several fishmongers and an art gallery. A top favourite is supremely fresh fish and chips from Mackays followed by award-winning Giacopazzi’s ice cream. Other excellent eateries nearby include the Craw Inn at Auchencrow and the Allanton Inn at Allanton. All great lunch choices.
The cliffs at nearby St. Abbs, a designated Nature Reserve, are the prime breeding and nesting grounds for thousands of seabirds and seals are also common. To the south, some of our favourite spots nearby include the stunning beach at Bamburgh, miles of pristine sand, popular for walking, riding and surfing and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. This tiny, picturesque island linked at low tide to the mainland, is an overwhelmingly mystical place, home to the evocative remains of a ruined eleventh-century priory, a beautifully restored castle and the infamous Lindisfarne Mead.
Tell me more about Kefir?
Your daily dose of live active cultures, and a significant source of B12, phosphorus, calcium and Vitamin A. Contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, vision, bones, muscles, immune system, energy yielding metabolism, digestive enzymes and psychological function. Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Your gut is an ecosystem. Look after it!
Inside your gut, there are trillions of bacteria. Scientists estimate the exact number to be 1024 or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000! They call this natural ecosystem inside you “the microbiome”. Imagine your microbiome like a tiny Amazon rainforest, full of beautiful life forms. When healthy, it’s like a thriving ecosystem of flowers, fish, birds, trees, rivers, deer and jaguars. You want this ecosystem to be biodiverse and full of life.
Reiki as defined by the Oxford English dictionary is:
“A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being”.
It is however, also widely accepted that Reiki can be given and received equally effectively hands-off or via distant healing. The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ literally translates as universal life force energy. This system of healing was developed by Mikao Usui the early 20th century. It is a non-invasive complementary therapy that has been taught and used in the UK since the late 1900s, but Eastern medicine has for thousands of years worked with this energy, recognising its flow through all living things. Reiki supports orthodox medicine or can be used alone but is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments. It is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion, yet, scientific research using quantum physics is starting to help us to understand how Reiki may work to benefit the individual. It has been suggested that in years to come it may be known as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the practitioner’s hands.

Why Organic Wine ?
Organic wine is made using only certified organic grapes, grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical fertilisers.
Nobody likes man-made toxins, especially pesticides, that find their way into our food and drink chain, and eventually into us. These chemicals also harm the wider environment, including those that live and work locally. So, drink organic wine to help enhance biodiversity and maintain healthy soils and people too. Choose organic and biodynamic wine for best quality and value. Balanced and healthy organic grapes, are the starting point for any great wine.
