Join us for a wild foraging walk around Gisburn Forest with expert Adrian Rose from North West Bushcraft.  Adrian will take you on a short walk (approx 3 miles) to seek out wild foraged foods such as fungi, medicinal plants & trees. 

We’ll then take a short journey by car to Dale House Barn for a 3 course foraged feast put together by the talented Dominque Ashford, owner of Dale House Barn and B&B.

The menu will be finalised nearer to the date, but this is an example of what you can expect:

  • Homemade sour dough bread and wild fennel butter

  • Haunch of venison, mashed potatoes, pickled Blackberries, boletus mushroom cream
  • Rosehip ice cream, pavlova and wood sorrel
