1. The holiday cottage, it's along the side of Derwent Reservoir in a barn conversion but no view of the water.
I liked the look of this place because it was contemporary, uncluttered and clean looking, everything my day to day living environment isn't! I always take pics inside holiday cottages I like for ideas for when I have my own holiday cottage.
2. Alnwick, I've been to the castle before so this time visited Barter Books in the old station which I hadn't experienced before. A mega place if you like second hand bookshops.
3. Holy Island, Lindisfarne. My third visit and it never fails to spook me as you drive over the causeway soon after the tide has parted.
There was even a bagpiper togged out the same as Bob!
Couldn't resist this cottage!
The drive back with the rescue hut if you get cut off!
4. Bamburgh Castle
5. Blanchland Village, a wonderful, quaint, estate village, most estate houses had red doors.
5. Kielder Water
6. Warkworth Castle
7. Coast near Amble
8. Corbridge, a lovely Roman town with independent shops, gallery, vintage shops :)
This is inside the Balman Gallery, a fab place for a snack and I had the most delicious milkshake ever, peanut butter, banana and local vanilla ice cream float, heaven :)
Also spotted a lovely bakery in Corbridge with these amazing, colourful, huge meringues. Don't worry I didn't have one after that milkshake!
9. A quick nip into the Scottish Borders.
Jedburgh has an abbey, the gaol below with pink clock tower and independent shops
10. Kelso, has the largest cobbled market square in Scotland and some lovely independent shops and stylish gallery type shops, very nice place
Phew that's it, didn't manage a close up or any snaps of Hadrians Wall on this trip.
