New Chef makes Gidleigh Park Hotel of the Month
The time has come to announce the next Hotel of the Month, and with the arrival of a star chef this January, we have crowned Gidleigh Park as a top destination.
Gidleigh Park lies in the heart of North Dartmoor near the small parish town, Chagford Devon. The large tudor-house is surrounded by rich Devonshire countryside, breathing luxury in all 24 bedrooms with spectacular views and a 70 minute flight from Battersea Heliport.
The hotel caters for guests who want something a little different from their stay. 55 acres of preserved gardens and woodland compliment the hotel and are exclusively for guests, with fly fishing just on the doorstep in the outstanding views of Dartmoor. If outdoor fun isn’t for you, the hotel’s spa and pampering packages will help you feel relaxed in no time.
But there’s something even more special going on the Dartmoor hotel at this month. The team at Gidleigh is getting very excited about one of their most loved treasures in their luxury Dartmoor escape.
The Gidleigh’s award winning restaurant is welcoming a new chef to the team, who is aiming to bring modern, technical and meaningful dishes to the table for 2016.
Michelin Star Chef
Award winning Chef, Michael Wignall, has won Michelin stars in every restaurant he has worked in since starting his career in the UK in 1993. Famed for his respect for food and ever evolving style, Michael is known for his combination of unique flavours, exotic ingredients, enticing diners into a whole new experience of cuisines.
Michael will be taking over the Executive Chef role at Gidleigh Park on the 4th of January and his menu will be available to guests by the 22nd. He leaves behind his previous kitchen at the Latymer where he showed “outstanding talent”, earning the restaurant five AA rosettes in 2011 and four in 2009.
The Gidleigh team are very excited for Michael’s plans for the restaurant, who will release his menu shortly for his up and coming launch night.
Opening Weekend Stays
As part of the opening weekend for the new restaurant, Gidleigh Park are offering guests to come and stay on their overnight winter package, which will include Michael’s new seven course meal and bed and breakfast. The prices will start at £450 per room, which will have exquisite views of Dartmoor. To book visit www.gidleigh.co.uk or call 01647 432367.
