Not only was Lanercost a really pretty place, with good information about the priory but the church (active) next door is also worth a visit. The latter is free. The wonderful lady inside showed us the beautiful Burne-Jones stained glass windows and the William Morris...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.
