Simple Pleasures

Autumn is definitely here so why not get out and enjoy one of life’s simple pleasures?!

Whether it’s a woodland walk or hiking in the hills, exploring forest paths or meandering along a riverbank, strolling around a lake or breathing in the fresh sea air – there’s nothing better, and the great North East has it all!

Stop for a coffee and cake or fish and chips along the way, or sample some of the local delicacies like Craster kippers, amazing homemade icecream (too many to mention!) or an infamous stottie sandwich.

Browse a local market or while away the hours in one of our independent bookstores, explore castles, gardens, museums and art galleries or hire a bike and see how far you can go with the wind in your hair!

Family time is so important right now – so if the weather is grim or the outdoors isn’t your thing why not snuggle up and watch a movie, get the board games out or order a takeaway afternoon tea to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

‘Me’ time is just as important – enjoy a walk in splendid isolation (or with your four legged friend), take in an amazing view, hunker down in a cosy cafe or curl up with a good book – you deserve it!

Nothing compares to one of life’s simple pleasures – take some time to discover yours!
