Cottage Food services

Delicious homecooked food delivered to your holiday cottage in North Wales

What is Cottage Food?
A self catering holiday in North Wales doesn't mean you have to do all the cooking....

Order delicious, freshly prepared food from our menu and we will deliver it directly to your holiday cottage ready for your arrival! From our kitchen to the fridge, you can be guaranteed of its freshness. 

We have paired up with a team of professional chefs who will be only too pleased to create mouth-watering dishes for you. No fuss and absolutely no thawing time required. The food is fresh and prepared using the best ingredients on offer, preferably local whenever we can. This is self-catering at it's finest!

Following your initial enquiry, we will send you a selection of great dishes or plan a menu to suit you. Brunch, lunch, dinner or picnic, we're happy to help!
