Takeaway Night: Streetzzeria Airstream

Takeaway Night: Streetzzeria Airstream

It’s always good to have a takeaway now and again, especially when you are on your holidays or you simply just can’t be bothered to cook. So, I was really excited to find out that the popular Streetzzeria Airstream announced that they would be now serving woodfired pizza’s every Thursday in Felton. For those that are staying with Acorn Leisure Holidays in one of our lodges, you will find Felton just round the corner from us. It’s literally a few minutes drive away.

Streetzzeria have a fantastic reputation and it certainly is popular judging by the queue.

It opens from 5pm – 7:30pm every Thursday just opposite Felton Village Hall.

 

Back at Woodys Lodge,  we tucked into a margherita, my personal favourite though I did add red onions (never done that before, but that’s me being a little adventurous!), we also opted for a spicy veggie pizza. Both were delicious, though I picked the olives off from my slice! I probably would ask for a little more sauce next time but that’s my preference. Price wise, I thought was reasonable and in line with what I know my traders at Alnwick Market’s charge. Our two pizza’s cost around £12.00  but we did get a few extra toppings.

You can visit their website to preview the menu, link above. You can also ring your order through in advance so it’s all ready for you when you get there. Quite a few people seemed to prefer that option, the phone never stopped when we were waiting for ours.

Pizza Night at Woodys LodgeMargherita PizzaWe’d definitely go back and certainly recommend,  I only wish they did a garlic bread too!

They also serve soft drinks, tea, coffee and a range of flapjacks and cakes.

We often get asked by our guests on where’s best to go for quick and easy food and not too far from Felmoor Park, so I’m looking forward to visiting a few more and reporting back. Best job I reckon 🙂

If you are looking for a mid week, weekend or week away in Northumberland, why not check out our luxury lodges, we go the extra mile for our guests and the best bit, we are dog friendly too. No need to arrange kennels, bring your doggy on holiday with you.

Photo shoot with RubyDolls French bulldogs

Photo shoot with RubyDolls French bulldogs

Acorn Leisure Holidays had a fabulous photo shoot with the gorgeous RubyDolls French bulldogs here at Woodys Lodge at Felmoor Park, Northumberland. We wanted to showcase just how pet or rather dog friendly our properties are and what better way to do that than invite Hazel and her squad of fabulous french bulldogs.

When Hazel opened her car door the dogs came bounding out, one by one, running up the gangway of the Lodge and exploring their new surroundings. Interestingly they headed straight into the open plan living space and sniffed out the cupboard that holds all of our dog treats, blankets and feeding bowls. Clever dogs!

Here at Woodys Lodge and the Retreat we want our guests to relax, knowing that their precious pooches are safe in their new surroundings, that’s why we have a spacious terrace area at the lodge and a newly extended terrace at the retreat, both complete with their own gates. Anyways, check out the fab pics, I’m in love with Cherry, she’s the one sitting on her own at the sliding doors. So very sweet and timid. I can’t wait to see Dollys’ pups which are due in the next few weeks and as for Romeo her stunning ginger stud, the pups he has produced are absolutely gorgeous. I can see why her brood is getting bigger all the time.

If you love the pics, you can see more of the RubyDolls gang by visiting Hazels FB and Instagram accounts. Oh and she’s just launched a new product, a beautiful natural dog soap which you will shortly be able to purchase via her etsy page or her FB.

Hope you all have a fabulous Summer and do check out our availability, we only have a few remaining during the summer holidays and September.

Best wishes,

Welcome to Acorn Leisure Holidays website!

Woody’s Lodge is one of the latest additions to the award winning country park based in Northumberland, situated in a quiet cul-de-sac with its wrap around decking and luxurious sunken hot tub it’s the perfect place to unwind and recharge those batteries.

Since Woody’s Lodge has a spacious decking, we have added to our outdoor furniture. We have a fantastic corner sofa/dining table with extra seating available should you need it. We have also just taken delivery of our branded spa robes, perfect for drying off after a dip in the hot tub.

We were actually considering at some point in providing some form of cover over the hot tub akin to a gazebo, but the dark skies of Northumberland are an absolute treat and it would be such a shame to hide the blanket of stars that greet you on a clear dark night. So come rain, snow or whatever the weather may be, the hot tub remains uncovered so that your chances of seeing your own shooting star is maximised!

It’s not all about the lodge, our beautiful, modern and tastefully decorated holiday home is being given a face lift. Within the next couple of weeks we will have a wrap around decking with sunken hot tub added. I can’t wait to show you some pictures, watch this space…or subscribe to our Monthly updates by registering your interest.

Finally, now that Valentines is out of the way, we are focusing on preparing for our Mother’s Day and Easter Welcome Baskets. Expect to see perhaps a bunch of flower’s or an Easter Egg. This is my favourite part, buying and sourcing local produce in Northumberland – I’m always looking for quirky and different small gifts or furniture! If you do see anything that you think I may be interested in, please do share by tagging us in your posts or pictures.

I’ll leave it there for now, but we would love to hear from you and if you have any feedback on how we could improve our site or services, please do let us know.

Best wishes,
