Welcome Supper

We aim to make a stay at The Cottage in the Garden as special an experience as we possibly can, so if you like the idea of a completely relaxing, utterly luxurious beginning to your holiday, we have a suggestion......

You could pre-order a supper for two from our menu below, to seize the opportunity to linger in a scented hot bath in the smart cottage bathroom, knowing that the table is laid ready for you, supper will be ready at the time of your choosing, a complimentary bottle of good wine waiting to be opened and best of all….no need to drive home afterwards!

Each meal is prepared to order and because we use small local suppliers wherever possible, we do require you to book ahead for your meal. Please note this is for your first night only and we must have your menu choices no later than 1 week ahead of your arrival.

If you would like a very gentle start to your holiday we can also stock the fridge with ingredients for your first breakfast so you can cook at your leisure.
