Breakfast is included in your booking with options of a continental style breakfast or a cooked breakfast if you prefer. 

Wherever possible, food is sourced from the garden or locally.  Home made bread, muesli, and preserves are on the breakfast menu. 


Additional meals to your breakfast can be prepared during your stay.  Some notice is required, particularly for dinner—24 hours prior to your stay, or you can let me know at breakfast if you would like dinner that night.  Soup, a salad, or platter may be possible without notice.

Dining is “family style” and may be shared with other guests and/or myself.  If you would prefer a private meal then please discuss with me.  We generally all eat the same food and I will choose the menu taking into account any preferences and dietary requirements you may have.  The food I prepare is delicious home cooked fare, using local ingredients or fruit and vegetables from the garden wherever possible.  It’s the kind of food I’d cook for my friends and family.
