Scarborough October 2014 | Hello! Hooray!
Scarborough fun
We had such a lovely time staying at Ox Pasture Hall last week (click here to see my post). After checking out we had a little bit of time before we caught the train back to York, which meant that we could have a little potter around. It was quite a foggy, dull day but we decided to go up to the Castle to see what we could see. Although it looks a little gloomy, it did actually clear up a little bit whilst we were there!  Read More

Ox Pasture Hall | Hello! Hooray!
Ox Pasture Hall
A little while back I was contacted by Ox Pasture Hall and was invited to stay and review the hotel. Naturally, I jumped at the chance and this week we went down to stay! Ox Pasture Hall is a luxury hotel located just inside the North York Moors National Park, a couple of miles outside Scarborough. So it’s a great place to stay if you want to go to somewhere to relax for the weekend, either by the sea or in the countryside. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds and it would be a brilliant location for a wedding too (more on that later!). Read More

Beamish
A trip to Beamish

Back in September, we had a day out at Beamish. Tom had never been before, and I had only been once – about 20 years ago! It isn’t that far from us really, and I’ve been saying for ages that I wanted to go again. For those of you who have never been, Beamish is an open air museum and it is described as being ‘the living museum of the North’.  Read More

The Great Northern Quilt Show 2014
At the end of August, me and Mum went along to The Great Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate (yes, I’m still catching up with post writing!). We had never been before so didn’t really know what to expect, but it was brilliant! The show lasted for three days and we went on the Friday – it was busy that day, but I imagine that it was packed out on the weekend. Half of the showground was the exhibition quilts, and the other half was craft stalls. We were in our element – it was like Christmas had come early! Read More
