It is clear that the self catering holiday is no longer the less luxurious alternative to the hotel. What is the only downside? The “self” element.

Well, when your own kitchen can sometimes feel like a cafe the last thing you want to do is to have to deal with it on holiday. So what do you do? Take away every night? No, you give us a call. Manor Cottage can provide a wide range of catering facilities for your “self” catering holiday so you can actually have your holiday.

From First 24-hour packs, drop-off meals and picnic hampers, to private dinners, barbeques and paella parties. And all consisting of good, local produce.

Please see below for a look at what we can offer.

Celebrate in style or maybe you just want to enjoy what is on offer, locally

For no more than you would spend in a restaurant you could really put your holiday accommodation to use. Manor Cottage caters for bespoke dinner parties in the comfort of your own home or holiday cottage. Perhaps your accommodation has some beautiful surroundings and you would prefer a barbeque or even a paella party outdoors?            

Below is a selection of services that we provide:

Paella party menu - from £9.95 per head

Using fresh seasonal ingredients like Brancastor mussels, cockles and clams, Kings Lynn brown shrimp and Cranmer’s own wild rabbit (traditional, optional), with the full flavour of chorizo and the delicate flavour of saffron, Paella is a dish to be shared and enjoyed. Enjoy the company of your friends, a glass of wine and the aromas that are being created as your chef prepares and cooks your paella in front of you. In your cottage or out in the open this really is what enjoying good food is all about. Also comes with fresh bread and butter, and a wild herb and summer leaf salad.
