We are ‘stuffing’ a weekend full of food and drink in this Leicestershire-based short break. We begin with a tour and tasting at the award-winning Belvoir Brewery, before a themed dinner at our hotel. The next day we journey to PieFest; a celebration of one of the country’s favourite foods taking place in Melton Mowbray, the UK’s ‘Capital of Pies’.

 

HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

 

Belvoir Brewery   |   Melton Mowbray PieFest

 

DAY ONE – Arrival

We depart from your selected pick-up point and travel to Belvoir Brewery, one of the East Midlands’ most renowned micro-breweries. A tour reveals many of the secrets of the process, ending with a tasting. We arrive at the hotel in time for a delicious three-course dinner.

 

DAY TWO – PieFest

Today we keep our eyes on the pies! PieFest is in the undercover Exhibition Halls of the Livestock Market in Melton Mowbray. Here you’ll find a variety of sweet and savoury, hot and cold pies, including award-winning pies from across the UK. Pie tastings run alongside workshops on how to make the perfect pie, plus an expert ‘Pie Panel’ can answer your pie-related queries. Also up for grabs are cakes, cider, cheese, wine and chutneys.

Once you have had your ‘fill’ of the festival why not take a short stroll around Melton’s town centre and the grounds of their renowned parish church before returning home with any treats purchased at the festival.
