We’re so happy to provide food for guests staying at Wakelyns, in the beautiful 16th century farmhouse, and the fun, cosy and comfortable ley alley pods. During your stay you will see the food growing in the crop and tree alleys. It’s our job to cook it for you, from seed to soil to kitchen to plate, with many hands in between!
Below is a guide to the foods you can preorder from us when you come to stay.
If you are staying in the farmhouse, your food will be in the house fridge and kitchen on your arrival. If you are staying in a pod, your food will either be there, the summer kitchen and/or our shared large fridge, or we will ask you to come to pick it up from the bakery. Please wash any pyrex dishes or other serving dishes and bring them back to the bakery, or leave them in the house for us to pick up after you leave.
Please email email@example.com at least a week in advance with your order or any questions you might have. We can cater for most dietary requirements but we really appreciate a good few weeks to get prepared so please let us know well in advance. Thank you so much!
