Valentine's at River Cottage
Pull out all the stops for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, with a romantic dinner at River Cottage.
Forget teddies, flowers and all the other clichés. For a truly original Valentine’s Day, treat them to an evening of fantastic food, wine and indulgence at River Cottage HQ, set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Devon countryside.
Cosy up around the log fire in our yurt, enjoy canapés and cocktails, then take your place in our lovingly-restored barn for two courses of the very best local and seasonal produce, accompanied by local musicians. Whether it’s a first date, a double date or a surprise for a lifelong partner, it’s an experience they won’t forget in a hurry.
