Tastes of the Valley

Maybe you desire a quick tasty snack or a long lazy lunch. Or perhaps yearn to free your hunter-gatherer to cast a line then cook your trout riverside. You can forage wild apples, pears, berries and herbs, troll cellar doors and farm gate produce, or pull up at roadside stalls for cherries, heirloom tomatoes, honey and jams made the old-fashioned way, with patience.


Be charmed by the locals and the country innocence of old-world roadside honesty boxes. Complete the experience with our amazingly pure water, our premium wines, ales and whiskeys. You’ll find it all in the Derwent Valley – choose a simple refuel or an ultimate gastronomic indulgence.
