Day Tripping - Fountains Abbey, North Yorkshire

Hey guys,

So, as I am home for Easter, I have been spending quite a lot of time in the countryside of North Yorkshire, as I am really quite lucky to have it on my doorstep. I love North Yorkshire, as, as well as being super pretty and tranquil, when the weather is nice (to be honest, this is a rare occasion, we are in the north after all), it is honestly one of the most amazing places to visit.

Therefore, me and my family thought that we would take a trip to Fountains Abbey, a world heritage site, which is located near Ripon. Founded in 1132 in Britain, it is one of the largest and best preserved Abbeys in England, and is owned by the National Trust. So, for all you history lovers, this is an ideal day trip. To be honest, even if you aren't the biggest fan of history (like me), it's worth a visit purely due to the stunning views. You can access the website for more information here.

Whilst there, I thought that I would take a couple of pictures (I know, I'm terrible at taking pictures, but I gave it my best shot).

As you can see, the weather also changed about 5 times when we were there; one minute it was sunny, the next it was clouding over! But hey, you've got to love British weather!

After our walk, we decided to head off for tea. However, we had no clue of restaurants/pubs nearby, so decided to check good ol' trusty TripAdvisor, and found a local pub called The Sawley Arms. And thank goodness we did, because otherwise I wouldn't have eaten this amazing meal. I had steak, with skinny fries, onion rings, mushrooms, watercress and roast tomato, and it was beautiful. I also included my sister and mum's meal in the shot, which was the fish platter. My dad ordered this also, and they all said it was REALLY good. The link to their website is here.

So there you go, a day out to Fountains Abbey! I know it's a bit of a random post, but I hope you enjoyed it! Where do you like to go for days out? 

Much love,
