Last Sunday was a rather epic day, packed full of Yorkshire goodness. We got up fairly early and headed out in the crisp sunshine to Brimham Rocks, where we spent a good couple of hours climbing up and around on the rock structures, just like mountain goats!
Next, we headed across the county a little way (up a rather steep hill!) to Nunnington Hall, another National Trust property where we lunched on the picnic we'd packed earlier, much to the interest of the peacocks in the lovely gardens in front of the house. Once we'd munched our way through that, we took the tour around the house and then after a quick tearoom stop, were back on the road.
Next stop was a random little village, Hutton-le-Hole, where we found a couple of little craft shops, a private museum and sheep, roaming around on the village green. Such a cute little village, but we didn't stay long. The girls' ticked it off their list, though and we were back en route to Thirsk, in order to see the home of James Herriot up close.
Being Sunday, we decided on a roast dinner for tea and figured that there had to be plenty of lovely little country pubs to choose from. After a few false-starts, it became clear that we'd have to compromise, so we went for a lovely Italian instead in Ripon, before returning to the cottage shattered and ready for bed after a long day in the countryside.
