My post for Thursday Doors may read more like a review or an advertisement for the marvellous Apple Store Café in the Lancashire village of Scorton. It is neither; it is just a mention of an amazing place we went for a snack after a walk in the Forest of Bowland at the weekend and where I saw some interesting doors, as well as windows, cottages, a manor house, a lake,boats, old farm machinery and state-of-the-art Victorian-safari-type tents complete with hot-tubs and wind-up gramophones (!). As they say in the brochure “Livingstone and Stanley would be quite at home in our tents.”
The link to Wyresdale Park Estate may well tempt you to visit. We’re lucky it’s a short drive away from us. We’ll be be back soon for one of their “Overfilled Sandwiches” or “Hearty Snacks”accompanied by a drink of Dandelion & Burdock or perhaps Victorian Lemonade.
the cafe is unique: dining takes place in restored glass houses, the cakes are freshly baked by the Lady of the Manor, service is with a smile and digestion takes place during a ‘stroll round the grounds’.- Wyresdale Park Estate

These photographs were taken behind the café on a wander around the old Home Farm where the buildings are English Heritage Listed:

I think we’ll need to go back again to take more photographs and eat more cake, though not necessarily in that order and sooner rather than later.
