Breakfast is everything. The beginning, the first thing. It is the mouthful that is the commitment to a new day, a continuing life. A.A. Gill (Renowned Sunday Times food critic and columnist)
Amy is a chef and previously worked for Bettys Cookery School in Harrogate (part of Yorkshire’s famous Bettys Cafe Tea Room business) for nearly 10 years as a Senior Course Tutor. She first trained at Leiths School of Food and Wine in London for a year, before working as a freelance Chef in London for restaurants, caterers and corporate clients before returning back home to Yorkshire.
Amy has created the breakfast dishes taking inspiration from local producers and is proud to offer more than the usual Full English Breakfast to our guests in the morning. We bake our own bread and make our own marmalade using Seville oranges sourced from our local market in Northallerton at the start of the year.
Breakfast is served in The Saddle Room in the main farmhouse between 7.30-9.30am and is £12.50 per adult or £6.95 per child (under 12 yrs). We don’t include breakfast in our room rate so guests have the flexibility of choosing whether they want breakfast or not, particularly guests who have an early start. We ask guests to pre-order breakfast the night before so we are able to offer our extended menu and reduce food waste.
In December 2017, we were awarded a Gold award after a thorough assessment by North Yorkshire Healthier Choices campaign led by North Yorkshire County Council for businesses who provide customers with healthier eating options.

Woodlands Farm makes every effort to comply with the dietary requirements of our guests. Please notify us of your specific dietary requirements to ensure we are able to provide accurate information and advice on the ingredients and allergens in our dishes. At Woodlands Farm, food is prepared in one kitchen so allergen based meals are prepared in the same area as allergen free meals, therefore we unfortunately cannot guarantee absolute separation of ingredients.
