This was a gifted stay and meal.
Sometimes a weekend away can be so much better than a week away. I find that to get away to somewhere new and blow away those cobwebs just for a few days leaves me feeling like I’ve been away longer than I have. A few weekends ago we headed up to Scarborough to stay at Ox Pasture Hall Hotel. I went to Yorkshire last year but didn’t get to that far so was looking forward to having a weekend in Scarborough; somewhere I’d never been before.
We left early on Saturday morning, drove up and stopped for lunch at the pub in Sancton. We didn’t want to fill up too much as we were having afternoon tea when we arrived at the hotel. The hotel itself is in a sort of oasis; you’re driving along wondering how on earth you can have a country house hotel almost in the town centre but then you go down another road and before you know it you’re in the deepest darkest Yorkshire countryside.
