I've been thinking dear reader, dangerous I know but it's only a few weeks until the girls and I go for our 4 night holiday to the Berwick Holiday Park, I'm excited about this because it's the first holiday with Holly the Beagle, this of course means that as I'm the only parent and someone has to stay with Holly at all times that we wont be doing any of the usual holiday park type shenanigans as Holly isn't allowed in any of the indoor areas, it's probably just as well that I intend to do all of the cooking, to be fair, I think it might be a tricky place to do sugar free if I didn't.
So I've been scouting around the internet for some dog friendly activities/pubs/coffee houses, I have a Pinterest board of dog friendly I save things to so if you're looking for somewhere dog friendly in the North of England do go and check it out.
Here's the places I've found so far that I fancy checking out -
The Berwick-upon-Tweed Barracks and Main Guard is owned by English Heritage and pretty much they're mostly dog friendly, it's interesting, historical, the kids will probably complain but you can't have a holiday without a little heritage in my opinion.
The Berwick Castle and Ramparts are also dog friendly and owned by English Heritage, I'll probably plan to do both in the same day but we'll see how long it takes to persuade the girls to come with me.
The Audela restaurant looks amazing and checking on trip advisor offers good reviews and confirmation that it is dog friendly, something which the website doesn't say, it looks like they do some really great British classics and a lot of the food looks healthy and sugar free so I don't think it's going to take much to persuade the girls or Holly to check it out.
The Queens Head hotel also seems to be dog friendly going by reviews on tripadvisor, I just wish that their website would confirm. I do think I will be checking it out as it looks like a really lovely place to go for coffee with the girls
One thing I have just done is purchased a murder mystery treasure trail around Berwick from Treasure Trails Northumbria now that's an interesting dog friendly and family friendly activity which will hopefully pique Abigail and Loobys interest and it should hopefully fill in a couple of hours, you can get a pdf version but I chose to get the postal version because I love real life things you can hold in your hand.
So that's the first 5 places/things sorted out and if you have been on a dog friendly holiday in Berwick-upon-Tweed please do suggest some places I should go with Holly, I of course can't wait to be down on the huge expanse of sandy beach which lies down some steep steps from where our Caravan is situated.
