A foodie escape to an elegant, award-winning Lancashire bolthole with a Michelin-star restaurant – includes breakfast, cream tea and a dinner allowance


Set in Lancashire’s Ribble Valley, Northcote is a 19th-century manor house where warmth and charm abound. The sumptuous guestrooms and suites all boast individual character, from the soft furnishings and fabrics to the furniture and sophisticated colour palettes.

The Main House combines classic charm with modern comforts, while the new Garden Lodge has a more contemporary feel. There are just eight rooms gracing the latter – Garden Lodge Superior rooms are luxurious with a terrace overlooking the gardens and surrounding countryside, while the larger Garden Lodge Mini suites boast this and more, including a living flame fire. For more opulence and space, opt for a Garden Lodge Master suite, with a separate living room.

The hotel’s Michelin-starred Northcote Restaurant is the pièce de résistance, overlooking the hotel garden and Ribble Valley hills. Savour dishes crafted by Executive Chef Lisa Goodwin-Allen with wines that have been carefully selected by Craig Bancroft – from the hotel’s very own wine cellar. Local artisanal produce and seasonality are at the heart of the menus, which feature classic dishes with a modern flair, and you can expect a sophisticated setting with true Northern hospitality.

If you’re keen to develop your cooking skills, look no further than the hotel’s very own cook school, which is one of the UKs top culinary schools. You’ll get to enjoy a unique and intimate foodie experience, picking up learning a number of new skills and dishes from the hotel’s professional chefs.

Please note that the dress code is smart and informal but no sportswear, ripped denim or shorts.


Northcote sits in all its grandeur in the heart of Lancashire’s rolling countryside, on the edge of the Ribble Valley. If you’re keen to swap country idylls for city thrills, Preston is only 12 miles away, while Manchester and Blackpool are less than 25 miles.
