May Bank Holiday

Wow, what a weekend. We had the idea that we’d be able to get away for a bit of glamping ourselves this weekend, but that didn’t happen.

We, along with many more people from Yorkshire and the surrounding areas, went to the Yorkshire Dales Festival of Food at Leyburn on Saturday. There was a fantastic selection of stalls, exhibitors and displays on offer. One of which was Pizza a la cart; a Land Rover Defender fitted out with a wood fired oven. What a great idea for a party or an event.

I tried plenty of samples, including ciders, pickles, cheeses and a cheeky little chilli jam from the Chilli Jam Man, which for a brief second I’m sure made me go a bit deaf!

It was also good to meet up with Chris (and William) Wildman of Paganum and Yorkshire Chorizo fame to discuss some glamping ideas we have, and purchase some of his sublime chorizo. If you’ve not tried his chorizo before, be sure to give it go, it’s beautiful.

On our drive back from Leyburn we took the route that takes in Carlton and Kettlewell, which offers some of the best scenery the Yorkshire Dales has to offer. On our way through Carlton we spotted a little country pub, called The Foresters Arms, which we decided to drop in to for a drink. Now this place isn’t just any country pub, it’s a community pub. I was lucky enough to get chatting with Peter Pearson, one of the committee members and one of the people who set out a year ago to rescue this beautiful Inn. This was a place that shut early in 2011 after having been an Inn since the 17th century. To find out more about what Peter and the rest of the committee are doing please go to the Coverdale Community Pub website. But most of all, show your support by actually visiting the pub.

Also in the Foresters Arms, we were introduced to Gary Verity (Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire) and Liz Tattersley (Head of Membership). We chatted about future work with them and bounced ideas around for other marketing and PR for Glampit.

So all in all, we might not have managed to get away for any glamping ourselves this weekend, but wow, it’s been an eventful one.
