Whether you’re cooking at home in your luxury cottage or dining out there is a vast array of choice and some local favourites that you don’t want to miss out on.
One of the must-see attractions in the Yorkshire Dales is the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes. Journey through the breathtaking countryside to this fantastic visitor centre, where the only real Wensleydale cheese is made. A new interactive family experience awaits including a cheese-making viewing gallery and museum. And don’t forget to try one of the 20 varieties of hand-made cheese in the fabulous shop.
Special Occasion Dining
If you’re in the Yorkshire Dales for a special occasion, why not try a Michelin-starred restaurant like The Box Tree at Ilkley? Enjoy spectacular food surrounded by arts and antiques in this delightful restaurant where the seasonal menu changes on a daily basis.
If you’re planning a walk in the spectacular Yorkshire Dales scenery, don’t forget to end your ramble in one of the many traditional country pubs. Often featuring blazing log fires and local ales, the Yorkshire Dales is packed with picture-perfect country pubs, where a delicious pint awaits.
If you love real ale both the Theakston and Black Sheep brewery visitor centres, located in the delightful market town of Masham, are worth a visit. The Black Sheep brewery is so named because one of the Theakston brothers fled the family nest to set up his own brewery and here you can enjoy a comprehensive guided tour and of course, sampling!
If you’re visiting in July it’s worth checking out the Yorkshire Dales Food & Drink Festival in Skipton, close to many of our luxury holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales. Featuring celebrity chefs such as James Martin and Gino D’Acampo, the festival is bigger and better than ever before with hundreds of exhibitors, children’s activities and tasting sessions.
