Lanercost Priory, founded by Robert de Vaux is an English Heritage Site once housing Augustinian Canons from Norfolk. It is located near Brampton and not far from Haltwhistle where I was born. It was amazing to once again experience the wonderful countryside in the area...More

Such a historical venue. Exceptionally well maintained, with lots of information available. Dating back to the 12th Century and only a short distance from a Signal tower on Hadrians Wall. Well worth a visit, there is a tea room, which unfortunately we didn't have time...More

The tearoom has a special area dedicated to dogs! Owners eat at tables and the dogs are supplied with water and bowls for food. I do not own a dog but it was well publicised and seemed very practical for dog owners.
