After a walk up and around from Scorton I called in at the Apple Store Cafe Wyresdale Park for coffee and scones. It is over a year since I was last here and the cafe has extended into the glass buildings attached. We managed to get a table in the original section which is cosier. The service is very good and the food was delivered with generous portions and was delicious. Good to see the place thriving and I will be back in the summer to enjoy the walk around the grounds and down the lane to the lake.

Carbon neutral - Save fossil fuels, pedal a bike to power up the lights in your tent. Our hearts leapt when we saw Wyresdale Park for the first time - this is surely the original setting for Swallows and Amazons. A lake for boating and swimming, a fell rising up from its shore and countryside characters just like Arthur Ransome described them. The estate is on the doorstep of the Lake District but better than that, it is private. Forget the traffic and crowds of Windermere - this is all yours. ... more less
