A Michelin star restaurant and hotel is collaborating on a ‘foodie experience’ with a number of activities and menus all celebrating local produce.

Northcote in Langho is launching a series of breaks designed for those who not only want to enjoy local foods but want to learn about how and where ingredients are sourced, as well as hone their own skills in the kitchen.

The newly launched Artisan Foodie Adventure will see guests being taken around Lancashire with visits to a gin distillery on the fells, cheese makers and ice cream fresh from the herd, to freshly made bakes and comfort classics.

Northcote has partnered with the Forest of Bowland on a programme which offers the perfect opportunity to find out more about the birds, wildlife, landscape and culture of the area.

From strenuous hikes over the fells to gentle valley rambles, fun children's activities and practical skills workshops, to a spot of star gazing, there is something for everyone.

The restaurant is also relaunching its cookery school where people will be able to hone their cookery skills with the help of Bruno Birkbeck, who has worked in Michelin star restaurants.

Each day is created to offer a different menu and skills and includes a two-course lunch in the Northcote restaurant with a glass of wine.

Michelin-starred executive chef Lisa Goodwin-Allen is also launching a summer menu, tapping into local ingredients.

Lisa said: "Now we launch our new Summer Gourmet Menu, celebrating the best of seasonal produce.

"Summer is always a lovely time to visit Northcote and enjoy the fantastic landscape of the Ribble Valley and the forest of Bowland.”

You can book in for a stay including the experiences with the hotel.

The day experiences can be booked directly with Bowland and Bay Artisan Food Adventures.
