Like tranquil English countryside? Like medieval architecture? Like exploring an old ruin, having tea/coffee and then exploring a nice gift shop? Then visit Lanercost Priory. It's a very nice spot, and nearby are various spots to explore Hadrian's Wall.

The tearoom has a special area dedicated to dogs! Owners eat at tables and the dogs are supplied with water and bowls for food. I do not own a dog but it was well publicised and seemed very practical for dog owners.
