We’re a family of four living in Whitley Bay; I’m Mum (Claire), married to Phil and we have two children who are five and seven. Bay and Beyond was created to share our family adventures and showcase the places we enjoy visiting in the area and beyond. As a family we love a good road trip; jumping in the car with a boot load of snacks and kids clothes for every eventuality! After a year of very few road trips we were so excited to be able to visit Stockeld Park near Wetherby.
