Provided a welcome stop for coffee and cake when cycling round Kielder Reservoir. The selection of cakes was fantastic. Definitely recommend the carrot cake. My partner is a bit of a carrot cake connoisseur and rates it as one of the best he's every had!

Okay, so the May Day Bank holiday did surprise us all, who thought the weather would be so good on a British Bank Holiday Monday but there really was no excuse for the atrocious organisation. We joined the queue, I'd estimate no more than a...More
