We offer a range of services to ensure that your holiday runs as smoothly as possible and is one to remember. Please contact us for any queries on our services and if you would like any extras included in your stay with us.


Book a Cook

Take some time off to relax with your friends and family, put your feet up and let us do all the work!

Various options are offered; you can either ask us to just deliver your meal either lunch or supper, ready prepared to heat up with any extra instructions or we can offer a fully waited dinner service which includes laying the table, lighting the fire (in winter months), pouring drinks and someone to serve food and drink, clear up, wash up and leave everything clean and tidy.

It's always worth it just once especially if you're a large group!

We are also delighted to come and prepare breakfast for your household which is becoming very popular for larger groups, especially after a late night.

Vegetarian/vegan options are always available with any of our suggested menus, and we've added our favourite children's options, together with simple, ready cooked food for you to pop into your oven either straight from the fridge or the freezer.

We love to cook using seasonal ingredients and our dishes are varied and delicious. We strive to use all the vegetables and herbs grown in the walled garden here in Symondsbury which is why we are passionate about only using seasonal ingredients. We've recently started producing our own lamb and our own pork will be coming soon. Eggs are from our free range farm chickens and almost everything else we cook is locally sourced. You can mix and match from our suggestions but please note we are very seasonal and of course, if there is anything you’d particularly like, we would be more than happy to discuss it with you!

A review from one of our wonderful guests...

"All of the food was lovely, the service perfect & friendly and everyone loved meeting you both [Santina & Julia]... The food fed us for another meal too, so from my point of view, an absolute winner x2! We have loved our time here and the meal was the cherry on the cake! The fish pie and hummus especially..." - Kirsteen & family, stayed at Axen Lodge August 2019
