Motorhoming Adventures on the North Yorkshire / Northumberland coastlines
Heading back inland, we took the chance to see a small ‘little known’ waterfall called Falling Foss… There are some brilliant walks around this gladed wood that rivals Aysgarth Falls from the Yorkshire Dales… but this one has a ‘trump card’…. the picturesque ‘oldy worldy’ tea shop near the waterfall… full of interesting wooden play equipment and a plentiful supply of clotted cream scones & pots of tea!
Leaving the North Yorkshire Moors over one of the prettiest drives we’ve taken across Europe… the stunning Blakey Ridge…we managed to get some of that infamous ‘Yorkshire weather’… beautiful blue sky/sun one minute followed by a biting wind and dark inky thunder clouds…. this only adds to the bleakness of this landscape yet it’s natural beauty opens up each time the sun shines across the heather laden moor (beautiful at this time of year in it’s resplendent ‘purple’ flowering)
The island has a very special landmark that has had many uses in it’s interesting history… from monastery to holiday home.. it is now a National Trust property and is well restored and protected…
Bamburgh beach has an equally impressive landmark as the castle towers over the coastline, yet this time the beach opens out into glorious sand dunes that certainly rival those at Holkham…
Our next leg of our European Motorhome Adventure will see us joined by a pair of ‘novice’ motorhomers… Richard’s parents.. Both girls are ‘over the moon’ to share an adventure with their grandparents.. so fingers crossed it starts well this Sunday!!
so where did we park the bus for the night?
We used a fair few will camping places, but settled on the car park just under Bamburgh Castle as our favourite to explore the area.
