Looking to hire a private chef in North Yorkshire?

I'm Shaun, a travelling private chef for hire in North Yorkshire. I come to you - your home or holiday cottage - and cook! After agreeing a menu for your meal, I shop for the ingredients, bring all of my own kitchen equipment to North Yorkshire, cook the meal, serve, clean up and leave the kitchen spotless - allowing you to relax and enjoy the food and company.

North Yorkshire is familiar stomping ground as I cook throughout the North of England - Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and beyond. If you're looking for a private chef who will travel to your home, holiday cottage or hired venue in North Yorkshire, have a look at what I do and get in touch. It would be my pleasure.

Based near Skipton, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, I regularly cook at homes and holiday cottages throughout North Yorkshire.

Shaun delivered an exceptional dining experience at our cottage.

He expertly crafted a delicious three-course meal, accommodating my daughter's coeliac disease.

Every dish was a masterpiece of flavour, and Shaun's professionalism and personable nature added to the evening's charm.

Highly recommended for anyone seeking an amazing private chef experience. Thank you Shaun.

A private restaurant experience
in your North Yorkshire home or holiday cottage


We agree a menu, I shop for all ingredents and bring them to North Yorkshire


I cook in your kitchen with my own equipment - I bring everything I need


I serve the meal to the table - I bring my own plates - and clear away


I wash up, pack up and clean the kitchen, leaving you with nothing to do

We had a fabulous family dinner with Shaun. The tapas feast was a perfect way for us to share delicious food as well as each other’s company. Shaun was attentive to every need - even preparing a separate meal for the kids.

We couldn’t possibly recommend him more highly - 11/10.

Can’t wait to get back to Yorkshire and hire him again.
