I had such an interesting time on my recent holiday in The Lakes/Yorkshire Dales that I felt I should share some of these hidden little gems with you.
I called into Yew Tree Barn, an architectural antique emporium that also has a most divine little cafe
with homemade lemonade and light as air cakes.
Upstairs, I encountered ideas a plenty, for bub and the littleies
Beautiful sockettes - yes I treated Miss Freya to a pair
Amazing art for your child's bedroom
I had the pleasure of a chat with, Casey Allum, a local portrait artist. A truly talented girl. Check out her work at http://www.caseyallumart.co.uk/
It really is a treasure trove
Just off the A590 on the way to Ulverston - take a detour on the backroad to High Newton
You won't be disappointed
I had the most indulgant day out
If you're looking for a local photographer to take a family portrait with a difference, Tina Luke has an amazing eye for detail and that 'different' shot
I have had the pleasure of meeting Tina and her work is incredible. I'll let her photography speak for itself.
Try out the homemade chutney and jam...
Or even an architectural antique
Call in and explore...
It's a real treasure trovers' delight
