I've accidentally discovered a lot of things in life. That's part of the reason I started this blog - as a way of sharing my favourite accidental discoveries with those who will love them as much as I do. 

Collyers Nurseries is my latest discovery - a place me and my friend stumbled across the other week. In an attempt to be all cultured and adventurous, we decided to take a road trip to Elvaston Castle. Unfortunately we arrived to a giant building wrapped in scaffolding, and a deceptively FREEZING day. (Side note: Never trust the sun in the UK. It lures you outside by promising a tan in February, and leaves you shivering in the middle of a cold forest wondering "Why the heck did I come out in a T-shirt? Stupid sunshine.")
So after a few hours of walking around the grounds, the same thought seemed to cross both of our frozen minds..."Where's the closest place we can get a giant slab of cake?"

We searched for the closest cafe that would accept card and came across The Pip Tree Cafe, a cafe joined to the Collyers Nurseries garden centre. The thing I like about this place is that it's quite literally in the middle of nowhere. Despite it's remote location, the food and the interior decor have a modern, warm feel to it - perfect for welcoming hungry, cold strangers like us. We split a ham and gruy√®re cheese baguette and a chicken pesto baguette... followed by a rose and pistachio cake with a pot of tea. 

So much for a healthy, outdoorsy afternoon haha
