About the break

Join the culinary journey led by the esteemed chef and TV presenter, Matt Tebbutt, as he immerses himself in the rich culinary tapestry of Northern England. Inspired by the region’s deep-rooted traditions of provenance and local bounty, this exclusive getaway seamlessly weaves together opulent relaxation, inventive dining, and exceptional regional ingredients.

Begin your adventure in Lancashire’s picturesque Ribble Valley, nestled on the fringes of the Forest of Bowland—an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Explore the thriving world of locally-sourced treasures, from charming village pubs and family-run farms to bountiful kitchen gardens and Michelin-starred dining experiences accompanied by carefully curated wine lists.

Your residence at Northcote, a 19th-century manor perched on the Ribble Valley’s edge, invites you to savour Executive Chef Lisa Goodwin-Allen’s Michelin-starred creations, crafted with the finest seasonal ingredients from the area.

Journey northward through the breathtaking landscapes of Yorkshire Dales National Park to reach your next destination: Wensleydale. Renowned for its iconic cheese, this region also boasts some of the nation’s finest lamb and wild venison. Don’t miss the opportunity to sample the local cheese scene at a charming deli or shop.

At Yorebridge House, a splendid Grade-II-listed estate surrounded by six acres of private grounds, Head Chef Dan Shotton showcases the best of local produce, much of it sourced within a 30-mile radius.

The enchanting beauty of the Lake District, cantered around Windermere, beckons you next. This National Park is a gourmet haven, with Cumbria boasting the highest number of Michelin stars in England. Expect foraged ingredients and handcrafted artisan delights at every turn.

Choose to stay at Gilpin Hotel and Lake House, where you can enjoy sumptuous spa suites with private hot tubs and savor a Michelin-starred dining experience at SOURCE, or find serenity at the Lake House.

Bid farewell to the friendly alpacas at Gilpin Hotel as you skirt the edges of Yorkshire Dales and head to your final destination, the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Explore the charming cathedral city of Ripon and savour a traditional Wilfra Cake, the city’s warm welcome treat.

Your accommodation at Grantley Hall, a former 17th-century Palladian mansion, offers a gastronomic paradise with five restaurants. The pièce de résistance is Yorkshire chef Shaun Rankin’s Michelin-starred restaurant, serving a tantalizing 10-course ‘Taste of Home’ menu.

As Matt Tebbutt wisely says, “Go north and you’ll never go far wrong.” Your unforgettable culinary journey through Northern England is bound to leave you longing to return.
