Mrs Lloyd - June 2021
We’ve had an absolutely fabulous week. We adored the Old Church, Anne and Bill have done a really beautiful sympathetic restoration job. The Church is really well equipped, with plenty of space and every care had been made to make us feel COVID safe. Anne is delightful and was so helpful with our annoying deliveries. We packed masses into the week and the weather was so kind. Bamburgh, Alnwick Gardens, walked a chunk of Hadrian’s Wall, cycled Kielder water twice, once on eBikes just to try them out - such fun and we’ll never be rude about them again! Our son and his girlfriend even went to Edinburgh. Plus several lovely walks. Can highly recommend The Lounge on the Green at Houghton for a special evening out. The Pheasant was excellent, and Bouchon in Hexham is a lovely French bistro. Northumberland is a beautiful part of the country and without Covid restrictions I doubt we would have holidayed in the UK. I’m so pleased we did!
