Foodie breaks and holidays

Cornish Cream Tea in England

Follow your tastebuds around the country and see what delectable delights England has to offer. Forage for your own ingredients, and have a chef to you to produce fresh, home-made treats with them at Bath’s Vale House Kitchen. You can also head to Beer in Devon and fish your own mackerel, before heading back to shore to eat the delicious catch of the day. Some of the best food can be sourced right here in England, and you can enjoy the spoils of it on a foodie break. If you’d rather be wined and dined without the work, you can try any one of England’s Michelin starred restaurants, such as two-star L’Enclume in Cumbria, or the mouth-watering Pipe and Glass in East Yorkshire. There’s also the long-standing history of beverages in England, and a host of breweries, gastro pubs, and distilleries to explore. You can try your hand at making your own cider, beer, or even gin. There’s even some more exotic options with things like chocolate and bread made from beer.
