For help with the catering or keeping your guests entertained, we can make your life easier! From the moment you walk through the door, with our celebration welcome packs, to Sunday morning pamper sessions, you can add any of the below packages to enhance your stay with us. Either add them at the point of online booking, or get in touch to add an extra to your existing reservation.

Dinner Party Menus

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


For £35 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 the formal or casual dinner. The menu is seasonal, but you can see examples of the types of dishes that will be on offer below:

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