I hope you've all been having a lovely summer?
It's time to show off a bit about the wonderful place we live and work! Here is a quick guide to what to do in Yorkshire during our sunny spells this summer...
Yorkshire is home to phenomenal countryside- from the rolling heather moorland of the North York Moors to the dramatic valleys of the Yorkshire Dales. There are a plethora of walking routes with fantastic views, perfect for taking your dog and camera and getting out in the fresh air. But if walking isn't your thing, there are a million beautiful spots to simply stop, enjoy the view and maybe indulge in a picnic.
Sutton bank is close to Tea Time HQ, so it's a definite favourite spot to go just for the scenery!
Yorkshire is also known for it's coastline- from dizzying cliffs to sandy shorelines, bustling seaside towns to wild and empty beaches, we have it all. Whitby needs a whole day to itself, as there is so much to see. beautiful beaches, stunning views from the clifftops and the Abbey, the famous Magpie Cafe for fish and chips and of course, many many jet jewellery shops.
I enjoy wandering the quieter beaches, looking for shells and the peace of a whole stretch of shoreline to myself!
Find a festival!
One of the best family friendly festivals in the UK, Deershed has it all- music, comedy art and activities for children and adults alike. Set in the beautiful Baldersby park, this festival is now in it's 10th year- and going strong! Tickets are sold out for this year, but be sure to check it out for next year if you love festivals and want to take your kids.
We are personally very excited to be part of Deershed this year, as we are taking Henrietta the H Van to serve up delicious coffee, cakes and cocktails to some of the 10,000 visitors!
Yorkshire loves food- there is almost ALWAYS a food festival going on somewhere. From the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate in July to York's city centre foodie extravaganza from September 20th to 29th, most weekends you can find one to wander around sampling all the amazing food and drink Yorkshire has to offer.
You can't mention Yorkshire without York- this ancient city has a bit of everything, and is incredible just to walk around. Take a stroll around the city walls and stop by the minister to admire the architecture, before stopping in at Spark York to eat, drink and shop at this collection of independent businesses housed in up-cycled shipping containers.
We all love a beer garden and great food, the place that has it all, great beer, wine and an extensive gin list. As well as super delicious food, and a lovely garden terrace. Nestled in the lovely village of West Tanfield, The Bruce Arms. Well worth a trip, you can even take a stroll down the river once you've eaten.
