Going North

Leaving the Lakes District today and travelling further north to our accommodation at Bishop Auckland (around the Durham area), which we have booked for a week.  This will be great as we will get off "the road" for a while and have a base to travel backwards and forwards.

The Hartlepool area is where we shall be meeting John's son and we are hoping to spend a lot of the time in this area catching up with him.

We took some great photos on the way up with some great scenic countryside (although a bit on the chilly side!) and arrived a bit early to book into the accommodation so had a bit of a look around Bishop Auckland and surrounds.  We did a tour of Bowes Museum (related to the Queen Mother with the Bowes side, I believe), which was very nice.  Were able to have some lunch and tour the gardens as well.

Made our way to our accommodation, which is a two storey semi-detached called Five Gables guest house.  We have self-contained accommodation, so are looking forward to cooking some of our own meals for a change (although won't stop us eating out and having the mandatory bottle of wine!!).
