This was our first meal at The Bivouac. We’d travelled up, on the Friday evening, after work, . Collecting Lucy from school en route.
It only took us an hour or two to get there, which was cool.
Once we’d been shown wooden shack and unpacked, we trooped down to the on-site cafe, which was lovely.
Everything well-thought out and beautifully presented.
And I’m not just talking about our meal – the cafe was on two levels, with the lower one acting as a family room with a slew of things to entertain toddlers and above. Lucy particularly enjoyed the sticker books.
We recently stayed at The Bivouac a fantastic retreat in North Yorkshire. We stayed in one of the 7-berth woodland shacks. No electricity and the only heat was from a wood-burning stove in our one-room shack.
Our first day we spent kicking back and relaxing – to the point where we even visited the on-site cafe for a splendid lunch.
I tried the vegetarian Falafel Burger with Red Pepper Marmalade
Red Pepper Marmalade
150ml 1 cup bell pepper, finely diced (no stem and seeds)
120ml /1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
120ml / 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried chili flakes
Place all the ingredients in a pan on medium/high heat.
Once it starts boiling, bring the heat down to low – stirring regularly.
Cook for 20 minutes or until most of the liquid evaporates and becomes a thick syrup.
