If you love a good old traditional British pudding, our Cotswolds Treat
walking holiday is for you. Plan ahead, timing your break so that you are staying in the Three Ways House Hotel in Mickleton on a Friday night, and you can take part in the weekly Pudding Club, a celebration of sweet treats ranging from eternal favourites such as sticky toffee pudding and jam roly poly, to lesser-known ones such as Sussex Pond and Lord Randall’s Pudding. After a little light-hearted pomp and ceremony – the seven puddings are paraded into the dining room – it’s down to the serious business: the sampling, followed by a vote for the ‘pudding of the night’.
Elsewhere in the UK, another walking holiday with an emphasis on good food is the Yorkshire Gastronomic Celebration
. Not only do you eat at some of the area’s best country hotels, but you also have guided tours of producers of Yorkshire cheese, rapeseed oil and wine.
