Stockeld Park - New Indoor Play Area Opens

Stockeld Park regularly pops up as a recommendation for somewhere to visit in our Days Out Facebook Group and it features in our 'Places to stop off when driving South' blog post. When I heard they had expanded and added a new attraction, I thought it was worth sharing.

A lovely weekend in North Yorkshire

 


We've just returned from a lovely break in North Yorkshire. It was a bit of a celebration for us - Steve was originally due to leave his employed job this week and combined with the fact that my kids had a 4 day weekend meant that booking somewhere to celebrate Steve's new found freedom and making the most of a long weekend in term time was on the cards.

Pranzo is an Italian Trattoria and Deli on Station Road in Whitley Bay. It's next door to Sushi Me Rollin' and on the same street as Whitley Bay Metro Station so super easy to get to by public transport. There is street parking outside (sometimes paid - check times) and there is a free car park outside Whitley Bay Metro Station.

Where to Buy Lobster in Northumberland

This post has been published by Steve. Please always check with venues direct for the most up to date information when making plans. 

For most people (myself included), Lobster is a very occasional treat and something to save for really special occasions. The odd time we do order lobster, it does feel super special.

Where to Buy Lobster in Northumberland


Over the years, we have tried lobster from a few places in Northumberland when out celebrating special occasions and we thought we'd put together and post sharing some of our favourite spots and the best places to buy this luxurious crustacean. 

I personally love it when my lobster turns up with a lobster crack and pick so I can really get in there and get every little piece. More often than not though, the restaurant has done all of the hard work for you and I have found lobster to generally be served ready to eat.
