Welcome to 2024 - Happy New Year!!  We are looking forward to seeing you in February.

Shop local for your delicious BBQ & food supplies

We have some lovely local butchers, village shops, breweries and vineyards that produce locally grown food and drink for your BBQ or breakfast (please note, some places you might need to pre-order items). Outside our pod there is a BBQ, inside a kitchenette with a 2 ring ceramic hob and combi oven to cook your food easily.

The following recommendations are places that we love. There are however lots more in the area that we have not tried yet.
