An Afternoon in Corbridge

Photobucket
Last Saturday afternoon, we took a short drive to beautiful Northumberland village, Corbridge. Only small, there isn't that much to do and yet somehow we managed to while away around four hours. A coffee stop, some antique shops and an early dinner as well as the obligatory blogger-posing...

We stopped for lattes at a little tea-shop called Tea & Tipple, I loved the old map hanging up on the wall.

I took my new Pollini bag out for the first time too, another handbag big enough to fit in my bulky camera, the dark blue colour matched my shoes perfectly.

We had a walk to the river, it was so windy but still managed some photographs, despite the odd Marilyn moment.

We had a walk back through Corbridge up towards the antique shops and pubs for a lovely early dinner.

The Angel of Corbridge is a lovely restaurant and hotel with a fantastic reputation for good food. I only managed to photograph my smoked mackerel pate starter, I was in such a desperate hurry to eat everything! It's a lovely place to lounge with a few drinks and food over some newspapers and chat. Just what Saturday afternoons are all about.

  4. Love the photos, they brought back alot of memories especially walking down at the river. There used to be a great pantry/ deli shop too, not sure if it's still there though. Thank you for sharing.

  5. I absolutely love these posts that you do when you go on little adventures! Your pictures are so gorgeous and it makes me realise that while I've been a lot of places abroad, I haven't really discovered the UK enough. (I hope to remedy this when I have kids and long-haul flights are totally out of the question!)

  6. Looks like a wonderful place to forget the time and the rest of the world. the restaurant looks exactly like somewhere I'd love to spend a few hours in the evening. (Dinner looks delicious too!) Maps as decorative accessories are always a good idea. xx

  7. I love these blog posts because it makes me want to go to that place that you have visited! I've only driven through Corbridge before. I think it was on the way to Keilder. I will make a proper visit to Corbridge soon and stop by the shops you have recommended xxx
