Nourish your Soul……at The Apple Store Café in Wyresdale Park Estate 

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

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.

Old doors have something about them that makes you curious. Sometimes I hesitate and wonder if I am going to take that photo, but yours convince me that it is worthwhile capturing them.

    Thanks Marga. I didn’t take my camera with me that day. Camera on phone came in handy ..again.

Great selection of doors to share!

The door with ivy is my fave but I must say the double locked door intrigues me. What on earth is behind it? As none of the other doors are locked, it does make you wonder. Great collection.

    Thanks Suvi. Yes, there wasn’t even a crack or a keyhole to peer through on the locked door! Mysterious.

What fabulous old buildings. I followed your link to the safari style tent lodges (or glamping). It looks such a beautiful place to stay.

    Thanks for looking Jean. The provision of a wind-up gramophone makes me smile. When I camped a zip-in groundsheet was a luxury

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
