Causey Arch Picnic Area, Tea Room & Walk

Disclosure: I visited Causey Arch recently as part of another campaign . This blog post was not part of the campaign & I have not been paid / asked to share this specific post. We covered our own costs. 

We have visited Causey Arch a few times as a stop off when enjoying the Tanfield Railway. We always just stop off for a quick picnic though and have never really fully explored the area - until now. 

Causey Arch Picnic Area, Tea Room & Walk


First of all, there are over 40 free parking spaces. We visited on a warm weekday afternoon in July and as you can see, there was ample parking. Use postcode NE16 5EJ and follow the brown tourist picnic signs as you approach.

Treasure Trails Review


Although I am working with Treasure Trails on this particular post, I want to begin by saying we are genuine customers too. We have tried a few over the years including a Treasure Trail with Here Come the Hoopers during a weekend break to Scarborough. They are something we will continue to purchase again in the future too.

The Ultimate Guide to What's On in the North East for Kids | Summer Holidays 2020



Hello and welcome to my ultimate guide to what's on for kids in North East England this summer. The format of this post is going to be slightly different from usual as understandably, there are hardly any events taking place this year. 




I have tried to include as many ideas as I can for fun this summer though. I hope you find it useful. This post will be updated across the summer as more events are announced so please bookmark this post and check back. 

If you visit anywhere and would recommend, please post the details/ a mini review in our North East Days Out Facebook group here.

Our First Proper Day Out This Summer



As of 4 July, one household can meet up with another household in any setting. I had booked tickets to Belsay Hall a few weeks ago and originally, it was just going to be me, Steve and the kids going.



But Steve landed a new role at work and his hours changed which meant he could no longer make it. So I asked if my brother and his son (4 year old Evan) would like to use our spare ticket (under 5s are free so I booked another ticket for Evan). My bro lives with my mam and we realised my mam had the day off work too so we thought we would make a day of it and invite mam along too so I booked another ticket. Luckily there were still tickets left.

Our £1000 (ish) Moroccan Back Garden Makeover


For the past two years, our back garden has grown out of control and was pretty unusable. Our back gate kept breaking every time there was a bit of wind and despite Steve's best efforts, it just wasn't secure. The whole fence would sway in the wind. Our shed was broken into a few times and the whole space was just unsafe/unusable. 

Our £1000 (ish) Moroccan Back Garden Makeover


We didn't do anything about it last summer as we were out and about a lot and didn't actually miss the back garden at all. We are lucky to have lots of space in our front (although this isn't private). We also didn't have the money to replace our fence but vowed to save and for it to be our project this summer.
