Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or have a beautifully laid out afternoon tea.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to the property and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own cottage!

B) A supply of sandwiches, pastries, cakes and scones delivered on the required date to offer a beautiful afternoon tea.

This is supplied by Dawn Gibson, trained at a Michelin Rosettes awarded restaurant. Please contact Dawn on 01833 660800 / 07879891837 or email dawn.gibsonpennyhill@yahoo.co.uk to discuss your catering needs.
