Farlam Hall is part of a new generation of boutique hotels that are luxury gourmet retreats.

With Hrishikesh Desai as Chef Patron, the hotel and its restaurant, The Cedar Tree, is a magnate for gourmet travellers and a beacon of true high-class hospitality for the North West.

Hirishikesh, a household name for the cognoscenti, has a formidable Michelin back catalogue whilst with Lucknam Park and Gilpin Hotel & Lakehouse, before shooting to fame on BBC's Great British Menu show. But he instinctively knew he wanted to connect further and contribute more to the whole creative process - affixed to delivering the dream product.

Here at Farlam, it's the perfect temple. Off the beaten track in the harmonious foothills of the North Pennines is this unique 12 bedroom hotel with six luxury private cottages, but feeling less like a hotel, more manorial home.

Concomitant is its restaurant, The Cedar Tree, which will champion Hirishikesh's classic French style and 'simplicity with oodles of class and unexpected twists to make guests smile!'. Here, a great meal is more than just great cooking, it's a total experience.
