The Great British Food Festival at Harewood House is a must for any keen culinarian and with Wood Hall Hotel & Spa ten miles away you can choose to enjoy the entire three-day’s celebration.

The Great British Food Festival is a celebration of local, regional and best of British artisan producers, and it runs a series of events throughout the UK. Committed to supporting the communities where we have our hotels through the provision of quality food and ingredients, Hand Picked Hotels share the same philosophy. 

And Wood Hall in Wetherby, West Yorkshire, is perfect example. Like all of our venues, they grow their own herbs for use in their two AA Rosette restaurant, and they also keep bees, offering the honey to guests at breakfast and also for purchase. 

Based less than half an hour’s drive from Harewood House, where you will find a Great British Food Festival event running from 26 to 28 May, it is the perfect place to base yourself.

Over 100 artisan producers will be on hand selling their mouth-watering goods, while top chefs from the region’s best restaurants will be showing off their skills, offering advice and tips. There is a chance to go on a foraging walk around the Harewood estate, too, as well as partake in the crowd-drawing Men v Food Challenges and Cake Off competition, and browse the many craft and gift stalls.

Local bands and artists will be playing live music throughout the day and with cookery lessons and various other activities for kids, Harewood House Food Festival caters for people of all ages. With a health club and spa, Wood Hall Hotel is the ideal retreat for a weekend getaway whether you are a couple or a family wanting to experience the Great British Food Festival.
