We have our own favourite haunts in the area … Alnwick and on to Low Newton by the sea, where we blast away work-a-day worries with a bracing walk along the beach before lunch at the Ship Inn makes our souls sing.
For a change of pace we headed to nearby Amble for an early tea at family friendly Italian eatery Zecca. Eve made her own pizza and then watched it being cooked in the wood-fired oven.
We all thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic meal, with familiar fare for the youngsters. Replete, we headed back to base camp, the log fire drawing us back to Eshott and a leisurely game of Monopoly in the drawing room.
After a tasty breakfast that set us up for the day, we headed off to Bamburgh Castle.
We had a wonderful time discovering its history; it has been a school, a prison and a home and stands proud, a highly visible icon on the coastline.
Enthusiastic guides love sharing the castle's secrets and our visit was tastily topped off by a warm welcome and soup and a stottie cake in the cafe.
Thoroughly rejeuvenated by this trip away, we head back up the A1 recharged, and all set to face the weekly grind.
