Country Fest … a real taste of the countryside.

Country Fest is a fantastic weekend which has proven to be a great success.  It is held on the 28th and 29th May at Crooklands, Milnthorpe; which is only a 30 minute drive from the Hotel.  It’s a show for all ages, show casing the quality and diversity of Cumbria’s independent food and drink producers and suppliers.  There is also a wide range of children’s activities and entertainment and demonstrations to keep the adults enthralled from sheep shearing to cooking.  We had a fantastic day last year, there was something there for all of us, my husband being a chef himself was loving all the food demonstrations and stalls, myself being a bit art and crafty was amazed by what people can produce and my two boys thought the mountain bike display was a treat.

Last year ex Coronation Street star turned cheese maker Sean Wilson wowed the packed audience with his mouth watering demonstrations. This year Claire Lara who won BBC’s Master Chef the professionals will be demonstrating in the food theatre.  In the demonstration arena this year will be K9-2000 dog display team and inch perfect motorcycle display team and many others.

After a busy day enjoying all the demonstrations and taking in all that local produce you can return to the hotel to relax and unwind and try out some of Cumbria’s best produce cooked by our Head Chef, Chris Davies, in our fantastic Burlington’s restaurant.
