Dinner Party Menus

If you want to spend more time relaxing and less time cooking, we can help!


For £30 per person we can organise a 3 course meal for your group, to be served in the comfort of our holiday cottages. And best of all, you don’t have to worry about the washing up afterwards!


Choose from a formal 3 course dinner or a more casual dining experience that can be added onto your reservation, either at the time of booking or at a later date. Please be aware that these are subject to availability though, so advance notice is highly recommended.


Simply email us the date and time you’d like your meal, along with your preference for either a 3 course dinner or informal sharing platters/BBQ food. The menu is seasonal, but you can see examples of the types of dishes that will be on offer below:

We also offer outdoor activities, which you can book for either a half or full day if you are feeling adventurous.

Half day package - £26 per person, for a minimum of 12 people

* Mobile climbing wall
There are 6 climbing faces to choose from on this 9m high mobile climbing wall.

* Archery
Learn how to use a bow and arrow for some target practice.

* Bushcraft skills
Bring out your inner Bear Grylls with a workshop on lighting fires and building shelters!

The half day package lasts 3 hours and can be set up at our venues, if you are staying at Standlow, Shiningford or Hollywood House. If you'd prefer to go offsite, or are staying at Ashbourne Hall, you can still enjoy a half day of similar activities at our partner site nearby.
For an adrenaline-pumping experience, we can also arrange for a full day out with a zip wire through the Peak District.

Full day package - £55 per person, for a minimum of 8 people

The full day package takes place at a local activity centre, so transport will be necessary. We can also arrange for the 6 hour session to come to Standlow or Shiningford, with alternative activities, such as kayaking and a treasure hunt. Please get in touch for further details or with any special requirements.

Any of these packages can be added at the point of booking, or contact us to add onto an existing reservation.
