Northcote is Pride of Britain Hotel of the Year 2013

17th April 2013 Print

Pride of Britain Hotels, the consortium of 44 privately-owned independent British hotels and spas, is proud to announce that Northcote in Lancashire has been named as Pride of Britain Hotel of the Year 2013.

Situated on the edge of the Ribble Valley, this tucked-away region of rural hamlets and breathtaking countryside is an area of outstanding natural beauty – and apparently the inspiration for J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth. With chef patron and joint proprietor Nigel Haworth at the helm, Northcote is a highly-acclaimed gourmet haven having retained its Michelin star for the last 15 years. The prestigious restaurant also holds 4 AA Red Stars and 4 AA Rosettes for its fine dining that incorporates the finest seasonal cuisine and the kitchen garden’s own organic produce. The hotel has 14 luxurious and contemporary individually-designed bedrooms, all with complimentary Wi-Fi and beautifully landscaped private garden terraces. A one-night gourmet break costs from £175 pp (two sharing) including breakfast, champagne and canapés and a five-course dinner.

Two new hotels – The Capital in Knightsbridge and The Feversham Arms in Yorkshire - have just joined Pride of Britain Hotels. Both were unanimously voted in as members of the exclusive consortium and provide the exceptional hospitality and high standards that Pride of Britain Hotels are known for. Brief details, with lead-in prices, are as follows:

The Capital, Knightsbridge – one night from £140 pp

Just yards from Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Hyde Park and the V&A, The Capital in Knightsbridge is a unique family-run five-star townhouse with charming English interiors enhanced by antiques and the family’s own art collection. The 49 guest bedrooms, including eight suites, feature handmade Savoir mattresses, Egyptian cotton bedding and Kiehl’s toiletries. Outlaw’s at The Capital is award-winning chef Nathan Outlaw’s first London restaurant, and it specialises in British seafood that’s primarily caught around the Cornish coast. The hotel provides convenient on-site parking (additional charge) and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout. A daily pass (£10 pp) is available for guests to access a nearby health club with indoor pool. A one-night stay costs from £280 per room/£140 per person based on two sharing.

Feversham Arms Hotel & Verbena Spa, North Yorkshire – one night from £95 pp

Situated on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, the Feversham Arms is a contemporary country retreat – think log fires, in-house art gallery, cocktail bar and poolside gardens. The hotel’s award-winning restaurant holds 3 AA Rosettes and the contemporary spa has an outdoor heated pool and signature treatments ranging from an exfoliation using black sand from Tahiti to an ice facial. Located in the timeless market town of Helmsley and just 30 minutes from York, the hotel offers the best of both worlds: an interesting mix of independent shops, a castle with walled gardens and traditional tea rooms. The hotel’s Sleep, Stay and Spa package costs from £95 pp based on two adults sharing a double room with breakfast, and includes a 30-minute spa treatment.
