Homemade meals, delivered to your door during your stay!

Let us Cook for You at Lower Whitsleigh Farm…..

Here at Lower Whitsleigh Farm, we like nothing better than looking after our guests. We are delighted to add to our tasty homemade dishes. All delivered to your doorstep.  Plus, there are no dishes to wash after! Or, order one of our fabulous hampers to enjoy!

Take the catering out of self-catering – let Andy & Sam do the shopping, chopping and cooking – just relax and enjoy your holiday whilst we do all the work.  For many guests, the luxurious aspect of a self catering holiday is being able to escape from the rest of the world: silence, privacy, intimacy, relaxation. However, for many, self catering may seem to require some effort – not appealing while on holiday!

We are a husband and wife team (with occasional help from the other members of the family, Oscar & Emily). We offer a selection of carefully chosen individual dishes and family meals which we prepare with love and care, to our own special recipes. All the food is prepared from the finest quality ingredients in our kitchen at Lower Whitsleigh Farm. Wherever possible we use locally sourced produce from the wonderful variety available.

We are happy to cater for most special diets – please telephone us to discuss your needs.
