This is not one for an average weekend, but a unique experience that cannot be missed. Northcote, one of the best restaurants in the North West, is a small luxury hotel and restaurant located in the countryside of the Ribble Valley. This place reminded me of The Gilpin where I visited for my mini moon, such a romantic and special place. When I arrived at Northcote I was taken on a tour of the hotel and restaurant and was blown away by what I saw. The Michelin star restaurant has been led by Nigel Haworth since 1984 and has a beautiful dining room which seats 52 guests, a private dining area and a chefs table.
