"Brian is a superb cook"…..Guest Comment

Delicious breakfasts served in the dining room of the Country House, or alfresco on the verandah. We offer a buffet of fruit, cereal, cheeses and meats, freshly baked croissants and scones as well as full English breakfasts made to order.

In the evening, fine dining is available, made with the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Crunchy salads and sweet young vegetables, freshly picked from our organic herb and vegetable gardens. All accompanied by home made bread, straight from the oven.

Passionate chef Brian, has been awarded many "Michelin Stars" by our guests, and the menu changes daily, depending on what is fresh and in season.

Freshly cooked meals are also delivered to the cottages.
