Finding Unusual Antiques in Cumbria

One of the most interesting antique shops to visit in The lake District can be found at Yew Tree Barn near High Newton not far from Newby Bridge.

It is an reclamation yard and if you’re like me you just never know what you can find. It’s great for a browse around, they have a superb tearoom and at Christmas there is a brilliant craft market!

FRIDAY EVENINGS IN HARRY’S CAFEBAR

Through the year Harry’s CafeBar is open in the evenings, first Friday of the month, bookings advisable.

Now taking bookings for Friday 18 May 2018

 This is what one of our Friday nighters posted on Tripadvisor after dining in Harry’s CafeBar…..

‘Harry’s Cafe operates during daylight hours as a cafe, but over the spring/summer months opens once a week on Friday evening for dinner. The furniture is all reclaimed, quirky, different, and generally all for sale. During the day it can be pretty busy as it is a very popular place, but the staff do an amazing job of seating you quickly, making everyone feel welcome, and checking you are happy. The food is tasty, the coffee good, and the cake portions hearty. On an evening, you are warmly welcomed, talked through the specials, and left to take in the cosy, intimate feel of the place whilst making your mind up. The food is delicious, especially the vegetarian options, which are a welcome variation from the usual cheese and pasta based affairs of less imaginative places. The wine list is excellent and would strongly recommend the quaffable Sangiovese. My only comment would be that the portions were so generous that I was left with little room for a dessert. The main meal could have easily been half the size and I would have remained over the moon on the presentation and taste. We will definitely be making this a place to regularly visit for coffee and cake, as well as pay day date nights during the summer!’
