The Catering

All of our catering is done by Kath at Tyddyn Mawr Tea Room.


Whilst we enjoy cooking with our own produce and using our Aga the reality is we have a number of dogs and we felt that the additional accreditation to achieve home cooking to be supplied to members of the public was perhaps a little too much for us to address at this time. We are also on our own spring water, so bottled water is supplied. Not only does this bypass the additional costs to us of having our water tested to be supplied to the public, but also allows us to comply with Covid regulations. 


By booking a course with us, choosing to stay locally you are helping to support the wider community of small businesses. This is something that is vital in smallholding and rural communities and a matter we are very passionate about.
