Breakfasts are a treat with our home produced seasonal fruits, jams and juices, served with a wide choice of cereals and yoghurts, followed by an AGA cooked breakfast normally comprising local sausages, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, potato, fried bread and eggs from our own hens. Special dietary requests are welcomed.
