An enjoyable holiday. The cottage in Lesbury, was large, although rather tired and worn. We had the separate annex, so were grandchild free except after 7am when we were open to visitors. The garden was enclosed, so the children enjoyed playing on the lawn, and Ellie and Alex practised their climbing skills on a large apple tree. The children really enjoyed each other’s company, and were constantly playing together, without too much squabbling. The weather was mixed. We had two days of sun, which we spent on the beach. All the children enjoyed splashing in the water, digging in the sand, exploring rock pool – with lots of excited shrieking and racing around. Two days were wet. We went to Cragside, enjoying a walk and a session at the play area, before the deluge began. Weren’t prepared so I used two large ELC plastic bags as rain cover! We squelched round house, and then gave up. The second rain was expected. Went to Warkworth and managed to look round village and have coffee before the rain started. Looked round castle, but didn’t stay for the Medieval event. Went into Amble for lunch, then on to Alwick for a look round and cup of hot chocolate. The rest of the time was mixed, but managed another trip to beach, and some walks. Walked into Almouth along the river, a very overgrown footpath, along the road, which was pushchair friendly, and walked back a couple of times. Discovered two good cafes – the Tea Cosy cafe, good for food, and the Dandelion cafe’ good for coffee and ice cream.
