Hello March


Can’t believe February has passed and it’s already the start of Spring!

At the start of the month, we shook the cobwebs away by getting out of the house. We went to Wallington House and gardens, Cambo near Morpeth , for a day out. It was a little chilly but the weather was mostly fine. It was nice to be out and about!




We had lunch in the tea room at Wallington. And of course we had to have tea and cake!

I got a Prawn marie rose jacket potato, which was a nice change for me. The accompanying salad and ‘coleslaw’ was a bit tired and naff. The salad was limp and lacklustre and the coleslaw was just red cabbage?! Anyways, Leigh’s food choice was good. He got the Pulled pork sandwich with crackling, apple sauce and gravy, which was all really tasty. Quite filling but there was still room for dessert!

We went for the Sticky toffee and the Coffee & walnut cakes. Both were really good. The Sticky toffee cake in particular, as I don’t know how to make the creamy filling and toffee drizzle on top. However, the Coffee & walnut cake I make is pretty good already and tastes very similar to this! All washed down with an Assam tea for two, another nice change from our usual tea.

  1. I love Wallington Hall - especially the den building zone in the woods. The kids can spend hours there! Although I've visited lots of times I've never eaten in the tea room as we always take a picnic. I think I will try it next time though as I love the sound of pork and crackling and the cakes look yummy too! Thanks for linking to #traveltales - I've added this post to our pinterest board. Hopefully see you next month xx
