The Northcote Relais & Châteaux has won the accolade of England's Hotel of the Year at the prestigious AA awards! This award is chosen by a panel of industry experts making it the AA’s ultimate award for hotels in the UK.
A luxury country cottage in Lancashire, Northcote is located in the green Ribble Valley. Northcote's restaurant is renowned for its fine cuisine and serves traditional Lancashire recipes with a modern twist, created from local produce. Individually styled, sumptuous bedrooms are divided between the original Manor House, which dates back to 1880, and the new Garden Lodge, all with spectacular views across the Ribble Valley.
Craig Bancroft, Managing Director of Northcote, wanted to share his deep joy: "Being awarded AA Hotel of the Year – England is one of those awards that you always dream of achieving but don’t always believe it will happen. We are absolutely delighted for the whole team at Northcote as this award is for them. It recognises their hard work, endeavour and tenacity to deliver an outstanding food and wine offering alongside genuine hospitality".
