Bayberry Hollow

Recently, my Mam and I used a sunny Saturday to visit Bayberry Hollow in Tanfield, near Stanley. I was very excited to visit and we weren’t disappointed.img_1182Bayberry Hollow is a café and gift shop that opened quite recently and I’ve heard lots of good things about it. It’s in Tanfield, a tiny little village that’s not to far from us and is so cute; I couldn’t believe I’d never been there before and I had no idea how nice it was. The café is a good size with plenty of tables, but it was very busy! We went late afternoon and we were lucky to get a table – I would try and book if I wanted to go for lunch on a weekend. The café looks like it was once an old pub but it has been renovated so well and I really loved how they had kept lots of original features of the old building while making it look clean and fresh with a rustic style. Its a really cosy place with lots of old fashioned, eclectic furniture and my first impressions, before we even ordered food, were very good.img_1184As we visited in the afternoon we’d already had lunch so we ordered scones. I had cherry and almond, which was delish, and my mam had vanilla which she really enjoyed. My mam ordered a pot of tea and I had a gorgeous hot chocolate. They have quite large menu, from sandwiches to pies and quiches, and a good selection of delicious looking cakes. I’m looking forward to bringing more friends or family back for lunch so I can try more of the menu.

Half of Bayberry Hollow is a beautiful gift shop – it is honestly heaven if you love cutesy gifts, homeware, and jewellery. They have a really good selection which is displayed so well – its like an Aladdin’s cave and we spent some time wandering around admiring everything, finding lots of trinkets and things we’d love in our homes.img_1183Although I’d heard about Bayberry Hollow I didn’t know what it was going to be like and it really exceeded my expectations. I’m so happy that I’ve found this little place and I can’t wait to go back!
