“We are an Australian family from Brisbane who 2 years ago were driving from Edinburgh to London, stopping overnight in towns including Durham, York and Stratford upon Avon along the way. One particulate morning I wanted to get off the beaten track and find somewhere special to have breakfast. My husband grudgingly took the Aston turn-off the highway, complaining that I was delusional to believe there would be a quaint town anywhere nearby that would serve breakfast. We were driving around not knowing where we were going, our need for a hearty breakfast my only inspiration for convincing my husband to keep driving. Google maps suggested “The Yurt”, following the route, words cannot express my delight at finding your beautiful restaurant. As I will continue to remind my husband for as long as I live, The Yurt and Nicholson’s are living proof of fairytales and dreams coming true. Happy 3rd Birthday and may all your dreams of running a successful establishment be realised.
