Mother’s Day should be a family day, am I right? For us at ‘The Northern Niche’, a family day often involves getting outdoors and enjoying a stroll around somewhere pretty. Alnwick Gardens sounds perfect if you ask me and now spring has finally sprung you can expect lots of colour. They also have have one of the worlds largest wooden tree houses; something that would definitely keep the kids’ attention.

Middlesbrough’s Orange Pip Market is back and whilst it’s not technically on Mother’s Day (actually on Saturday 25th) it’s still worth a mention. We have posted a couple of times about its success and look forward to what it has in store this year! Expect artisan food, flowing drinks, live music & more. I just hope the weather is good to us *crosses fingers*.
