YOU’RE SPOILT FOR CHOICE IN CORNWALL!
Quality produce always sourced as locally as possible gives you a great start to the day
We offer a Cornish continental breakfast, showcasing the very best of local produce. We normally offer this between 8am-10am, but are happy to be flexible if you can give us some notice! We try to source our food as locally as possible – bread is either from Quay Bakery or Niles in Fowey. Our local Leyonne farm produces milk for Trewithen Diaries, so we use their butter, milk and yoghurt as much as possible, and they also supply us with a fantastic selection of local cheese. The coffee is from Olfactory coffee roasters in Falmouth and tea from the Tregothnan estate, also near Falmouth. We try to cater for all dietary needs, but would appreciate some advance notice, as sourcing products are not always straightforward and easy where we are! Cereals are from local suppliers made nearby, and Apple juice from either Cornish Orchards or the very local Fowey Valley cider – both use Cornish varieties of apples. Occasionally, we have homemade bread .and preserves by Karen – we are developing a permaculture veg and fruit garden so that we will be able to offer more home grown produce in the future.
DURING YOUR STAY
Tea (including herb teas) and coffee are provided in your room, and normally homemade cake or biscuits.
Whilst having to socially distance, if you leave any washing up outside your room, we will return things with a tin of some homeade cake and fresh milk. We can offer breakfast either socially distanced in the Breakfast room – max of two couples at each end of our 3m table. Or we will bring breakfast to your room – we just request that you order the night before, and leave the washing up outside your room before you go out!
We are happy to prepare a simple packed lunch (an extra charge) if you would be kind enough to let us know the day before if possible.
We keep a small stock of most dietary requirements, but the more notice you can give us, the better!
At the moment, we are not offering evening meals, as we know that Nick and the team at the Fisherman’s Arms, a short walk away, do such a good job! There are many good places to eat outside the village, and we are very happy to recommend places. We can send you a list of possible places in advance if you get in touch. Unless you are booking the Barn Owl Suite, or the whole building, there is no facility to self cater.
