Book Joe Draper for a bespoke dining experience at your Sleeps 12 large group holiday house and you know you're in for something very, very special. For one thing, Joe has heaps of top notch experience behind him, having worked as chef for Marco Pierre White and River Cottage; the other thing is that the produce he uses ticks all the right boxes - ethical, local, seasonal, wild, organic and sustainable. You see, he strongly advocates supporting local communities by sourcing that way, and he likes to work closely with the seasons by using wild and foraged food where he can. Joe's style of food is clean, fresh and rustic, and absolutely remarkable in the way the produce speaks for itself; in a word - divine.

Forget Me Not
What Forget-me-not Elegant Events do is traditional high tea - but with a very modern twist so if you like the whole afternoon tea thing, you're going to really, really like this. They come to you of course, and they bring their gorgeous vintage bone china; all they ask is that there's a minumum of 12 people.
And what a treat you'll have; dainty sandwiches with the crusts all chopped off, savouries like sausage rolls, cheese scones, and sticky sesame sausages, kettle chips, salad leaves, pretty little fairy cakes, delectable homemade cakes (zingly lemon drizzle, strawberry Victoria crown, triple chocolate brownies, and more) and delight of delights, freshly baked scones with lashings of thick cream and fruity preserve. Take your pick.
Cutlery, glass and linen hire available too. Put your finest on, perfect your little pinkie pose; perfect for hen weekends, celebrations, corporate gatherings, or just because.
