Chloe’s Day Out in Meanwood

6th August 2020

Chloe tells us how she loves to spend the day exploring Meanwood…

I start the day with breakfast at Tandem, there’s something for everyone! Serving Home baked goods, coffees and hearty breakfasts and lunches. The store is well worth exploring too, they have homewares, plants, locally made products, mid-century rescued items AND locally sourced artist and makers all sitting on the beautifully dressed shelves. It’s an absolute treat to visit! Tandem are currently open Thurs – Sat, 10:00-15:00 and have an online shop as well!

Now it’s time to spend the day walking through Meanwood Park and The Hollies which are part of the Meanwood Valley Trail. It’s quite a long walk to go all the way to Golden Acre Park but it is worth it for the beautiful scenery and wildlife you encounter along the way! After working up an appetite, it’s time to get a tasty snack before relaxing in the park for the rest of the day.


So it’s over to Wildcraft Bakery, a stone’s throw from Meanwood Park, for some lunch. They are an allergy conscious bakery who strive to make the best artisanal food that just happens to be entirely gluten free and peanut free! From cinnamon buns and cookies to occasion cakes, these guys are really making an impact in the community and how amazing that they deliver locally as well!  They cater for many allergies but allergy info should be checked on each product.

After a nicely balanced day of both walking and relaxing, I’m ready for dinner. We’ve got a table booked at Zucco, a family run Italian restaurant serving freshly prepared small sharing plates, open for eat in or take out. The food is so fresh and filling! A tasty end to a fun day.
