The award-winning School of Artisan Food and Ye Olde Bell, a beautiful 17th century hotel and spa, are offering the perfect foodie getaway this Christmas.
For food lovers and home baking enthusiasts, Christmas is the perfect time of year to share delicious homemade treats with family and friends. The hands-on Christmas Baking course offered by The School of Artisan Food is the ideal opportunity to get into the festive spirit, while learning how to bake a selection of Christmas favourites to perfection.
Taught by the award-winning author and internationally renowned baker, Emmanuel Hadjiandreou, food lovers will create a selection of festive treats, including a German inspired stollen and a modern twist on the traditional mince pie as well the skills to make puff pastry, marzipan and enriched doughs.
Now The School, based in the former fire stables in a beautiful secluded countryside setting, in the midst of the Welbeck estate, Nottinghamshire, has teamed up with Ye Olde Bell to offer a fabulous festive getaway.
The festive package is on offer for Sunday November 11 or Sunday December 9. In addition to enjoying the course guests will be able to stay at Ye Olde Bell, located a short 20 minute drive away from the school in the rural village of Barnby Moor. They can choose to stay the day before or same day of the course and the package also includes traditional English breakfast at the hotel.
The hotel is on the borders of Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and has been passionately restored and renovated by its current owners. It features 59 beautiful rooms, suites and lodges, all individually styled with period furniture, luxurious fabrics and contemporary bathrooms.
Dining at Ye Olde Bell ranges from classics and contemporary Rosette dishes served in either elegant Restaurant 1650 or the more relaxed St Leger Bistro and Bar to hearty Sunday roasts and traditional afternoon teas.
Last year the hotel opened a new multi million pound spa, which includes a host of thermal experiences, to stimulate the body and mind, indoor/ outdoor vitality pool, the delicious Herb Garden Brasserie, gorgeous alpine inspired outdoor relaxation area, individually style treatment rooms and hair and beauty salon.
The course is being offered at £125 when booked with the hotel (normally priced at £175) and Ye Olde Bell are offering special room rates of £119 double/twin; £89 single per night including full English breakfast.
