Feversham Arms makes a bid for the UK’s more luxurious breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so, it makes sense that once in a while you should spoil yourself.

Well, Feversham Arms Hotel in Helmsley, North Yorkshire have put in their bid in to create a breakfast that matches their superb location, service and facilities.

For £120, this luxury breakfast for two is truly on another level. The breakfast comprises of Balik salmon, two duck eggs, Oscetra Caviar, Crème Fraîche and mini brioche. This is all washed down with a glass of perfectly chilled Laurent Perrier champagne.

Each ingredient and flavour combination has been selected to create a breakfast experience that you will not forget in a hurry.

Helmsley, is one of my favorite towns to visit in North Yorkshire, a real pocket of innovative food discoveries, beautiful views and just a stone throw away from York.

If you ever needed an excuse to visit, this could be just up your street and if not… It never takes that much arm twisting to go for a day out at the spa, does it ?
