Buffers and Bolton Abbey

William, Caroline, Charlie and I loaded up in Caroline’s car yesterday and headed into Yorkshire.

Buffers is a unique cafe within an old stone farmhouse in a perfect, picture postcard, setting. 

Up above Bolton Abbey with fantastic views of the glorious Yorkshire Dales countryside, Buffers is the perfect place to go on a beautiful autumn day for a hot drink and a bite to eat.  Which is exactly what we did yesterday. Buffers is part of a working dairy farm and all the food served in the cafe is home-made and home-grown.

Buffers was our first stop and then it was down into Bolton Abbey.


We enjoyed walking in the crisp fresh air and wallowing in the beauty around us.  The place was busy, lots of families were out enjoying themselves.  There were even some hardy souls having picnics on blankets on the grass!  I must admit I wished we had taken a picnic but I don’t know that I would have been brave enough to sit on the grass to eat it.  I think I would have wanted a picnic table, to be off the ground.  Others were having barbecues and that looked and smelled good!


There’s no doubt about it, Bolton Abbey is a beautiful place and we love it!
