Sunny day out in Northallerton

Saturday was beautiful, warm and sunny! We all had a trip out to Northallerton whilst my husband was busy at work with it being the Grand National. 

The market that was on was amazing, there were a lot of different stalls with yummy foods from various countries that smelt delicious, handcrafted items and clothing but I’ve never ever been to one where they had owls! 

My sister loves going to tea rooms for afternoon tea, I don’t know how she managed to persuade my step dad to take us all into Betty’s Tea Rooms but she did! We all had very yummy food and I finally tried avocado for the FIRST time, Which I’ve been meaning to try for ages! My daughter didn’t actually have a great deal of choice on the child’s menu that was provided for breakfast so she had to opt for a ham sandwich. Overall we really enjoyed it! The only niggle we had was for what my daughter and sister got it was expensive. 

Overall we had a brilliant day out visiting and exploring a town that a few of us had not been too before. 

Trip to chester

So I’m a bit late at popping this up and a few of the photos were taken just before Christmas but we were down at Chester last Sunday.

We have had alot of day trips down to Chester to visit my sister at uni and you never get bored! The city is just amazing from all the beautiful buildings which are full of character to the quirky walkways and the wibbly-wobbly stairwells. There is so much to take in when you are there, it’s well worth a visit.


We went for lunch in a unique, quirky little tea room called Mad Hatters, which we all absolutely loved. The decor is fantastic and great for adults and little ones! Each time we have popped in for a bite to eat the staff are always welcoming, friendly and the atmosphere is always pleasant.



Chester is well worth a visit, wether it may be a day trip or a weekend break you will no be disappointed!
