We have had a plan to go out for lunch and then on to Stockeld Park in Wetherby with the Drewetts for a couple of weeks now.
We had a lovely lunch at the Fox and Hounds pub in Walton, near Wetherby – it was a wonderful meal with a fabulous Apple and Pear Crumble to end 🙂
Then we head over to Stockeld Park, only to be told (as we drove in) that they have experienced a burst water pipe and that the park was closing 🙁 It was planned by Vicky to get there to have time for a leisurely walk around the enchanted forest and to then see all the lights come on as dusk kicked in, so as a result time was not on our side for much else 🙁
Lee suggested heading over to the designer outlet village in York as they have a little amusement park set up for Christmas. It was really nice when we got there (OK so a little cold) but the kids all got to go on the helterskelter and the other roundabout type of rides as well as having a go at knocking skittles down type stalls and hook a duck etc.
A great save from what could have been a disastrous afternoon – guess we will hold the Stockeld Park visit for another day 🙂
