You don't need to do the five mile circular walk around Nicky Nook and Grizedale Fell with spectacular views of the Trough of Bowland and Morecambe Bay or take a boat trip around the small lake to enjoy a cream tea here. Unless of course you need some help working up the appetite you'll need before tucking into the tea with homemade scones and cakes all served with a welcoming smile and mix and match bone china crockery. If you're too full for the drive home you can always stay the night in one of the luxury tents hiding in the grounds.
The food stalls in the square of the Jemaa el Fna or La Place, as the French call it, where Marakshis have come for centuries for dinner and a show are a place everyone should visit at least once in their lives we agreed with the German couple sitting next to us tucking into snails and camel heel while discussing their daughters’ Northern Soul thesis and watching the snake charmers and storytellers work their magic. I preferred their taste in music to their taste in food but the myriad of food stalls here also serve fish and chips or tagines for the more faint hearted. This isn’t a big place but that only seems to make you so much more aware of just how diverse and colourful the world is as you break bread with people from all corners of the world.
