"What a wonderful place. The food and hospitality are second to none, thank you so much for looking after us."
Breakfast at Horseshoe Cottage Farm is an occasion not to be missed!
As you will discover, we use locally sourced produce and many fresh vegetables straight from the kitchen garden at Horseshoe Cottage Farm.
Meals (minimum 6 people) are by appointment and can be served in one of two dining rooms - if the weather is fine, we are happy to serve you a wonderful al fresco breakfast in the garden.
Linda’s free range eggs, home-made bread and preserves ensure your breakfast is a feast.
If you prefer to dine elsewhere, we can recommend some excellent restaurants close to Horseshoe Cottage Farm: see our home page for some suggestions.
We pride ourselves on the fact that our breakfasts are almost entirely locally sourced.
Our bread is homemade using flour from local Claybrooke Mill. We make fresh porridge for you using oats also from the Mill.
Linda’s cousin supplies our award winning yoghurts direct from her oven farm ~ Manor Farm in Thrussington, which have won first prize at the prestigious Nantwich Dairy show.
Linda makes homemade jams and marmalade with fruits from the garden.
Our meat products come from Johnsons Butchers in Woodhouse Eaves, who source produce locally.
The fruit compote is from garden fruits and Linda makes her own granola.
When available, we pick fresh tomatoes from our greenhouse.
We now serve locally produced raw milk from Charnwood Forest Farm as an option at breakfast time. It is so delicious and full of goodness. Fully tested and approved etc.
