Pillow Talk sees award-winning hotelier Peter Banks, Rudding Park Managing Director, chat to a range of guests about all things lifestyle; from travel, food and drink, interiors, well-being, gardening and how to be the perfect host.

The pilot episode hears Rudding Park super fan and host of the Your Harrogate Podcast, Nick Hancock chat with Peter who provides a little insight into what inspired him to be a hotelier.

Mr Banks said: “We felt a podcast would be a great way to provide people with an insight in to the goings on behind the scenes.

"Over the coming months I’ll be chatting to a diverse team of people who help make ‘Rudding Park tick’; from chefs and gardeners to wellbeing specialists, greenkeepers and the guest relations team. I’ll also be joined by partners with whom we collaborate including our interior designer, astronomer and guests of Rudding Park such as TV presenter Helen Skelton who will be talking about her new hobby in episode two.

"More than 7.1 million people in the UK listen to a podcast once a week and we are always keen to embrace new ways to connect with our guests and, hopefully, reach a new audience. We hope people enjoy listening – it’s a little like ‘what the butler saw!”
