The Coca Cola Truck

Easter Bank Holiday Monday at Temple Newsam




Bank Holidays are always very quite in the hospitality trade. Its the time we have our bit of R&R after working most of the weekend. Yesterday was no exception. My sister (Acres Dene) and I decided to take the dog for a Nordic Walk at Temple Newsam




What an absolutely glorious walk it is, you can walk miles,uninterrupted totally traffic free, in peaceful countryside. We walked 4.5 miles including bridlepaths, georgous bluebell woods and saw rare breed cattle. Boo our dog just loves it.

A good tip is to take a drink and a snack with you or even a pic-nic you can fill an entire day if you really enjoy the great outdoors.

Fantastic Family Easter Fun In York

We have had some fantastic new customers this Easter weekend, made some new friends, enjoyed their company.

Mr Middleton raved about the National Railway Museum, he said, even though he didn’t have any interest in trains what so ever he thought it was a marvelous museum that had kept him, his wife and 3 kids fully entertained for 5 hours yes thats 5 hours. He just couldn’t believe that it was free. Returning every night very weary and ready for a couple of beers in the bar.

The weather has certainly helped, everyone has been able to sit and enjoy a drink in the gardens whilst the kids played.

For other attractions in York

Since the summer holidays are just around the corner, it started me thinking about what i did last summer. One of my most enjoyable days out involved a day out with my neice to Forbidden Corner near Middleham.

It was my second visit and i couldnt wait to introduce my family to it. It really is a fantastic day out for children. Its just like visiting Alice in Wonderland.

Set right in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales near Leyburn, it is about an hours car ride from York. It only accepts advance ticket bookings,these can be bought from the tourist office in Middleham or by advance telephone bookings. The website www.theforbiddencorner.co.uk/ will also give you the datails you need however do not use the website to make an assumption of the attraction, it does not do it any justice.

I am not going to give its secrets away as it would spoil the effect of your visit my advice is to take a camera, a picnic (though there is a cafe) and most importantly a comfortable stout pair of shoes.

Children who are of a delicate nature may be frightend of the experience but dont be put off there are loads of other things to do.
