Upcoming Events

bbq-4thFamily BBQ 2nd July

It’s been too long since our last family BBQ and with a few notable events happening around this time, we thought we would throw caution to the wind and sort one out.

Starting at 2pm we look forward to catching up with members of the Pryor and Durkin family lines.

Much to my delight Paul has already started practicing the making of home made chocolates!IMG_0554

York weather being what it is, come prepared to get a tan, but equally bring your wellies and rain coat 🙂

Given the family is spread far and wide we are expecting most people to make a weekend of it.  The in-laws have bagged the two spare rooms at our house, so for if you do need any ideas on accommodation, you might want to check the links below.  There is a lot going on in York that weekend, so get in early.

Primrose Lodge – Just along the road from us and definitely within walking distance is  http://www.primroselodge.co.uk

The Windmill – again just along the road is our local pub http://thewindmilldunnington.co.uk/accommodation.php

Fifth Milestone Cottage – the final of three local places to stay within walking distance is http://www.milestonecottage.co.uk

If you fancy a little taxi ride but with the added benefit of luxury then you may want to try the following options as well.  (These always book up quickly)

Kexby House – Further down our road is this highly rated B&B for those who fancy some luxury – http://www.kexbyhouse.co.uk

The Marriott – You can never go wrong with a Marriott and York is no exception.  Can be very pricey but occasionally has very good offers on – https://www.marriott.co.uk/hotels/travel/qqyyk-york-marriott-hotel/ – If you do want to book here, give me a shout as I have a loyalty membership which means we may swing a few extras.

Finally, if one visit to York isn’t enough you may want to think about coming back to visit the city during  one of the best times to be here.   The Great Yorkshire Fringe takes place from the 15th July to the 31st July this year.



With it’s first outing last year, we were supremely impressed and highly recommend a visit to see how they transform the city centre into a festival village with hundreds of top ranking acts appearing on small cosy stages.  Check out there website here http://www.greatyorkshirefringe.com
