Platters, picnics, pizzas and firepits!

We have found that a lot of guests arrive at Crafts Hill Barn and don’t want to leave! So we’ve introduced a menu of delicious deli platters. If you’re arriving late or fancy a cosy night in, we’ll prepare a tasty spread and leave it in your room for you to enjoy.

Maybe you’re planning a long day out and would like a delicious picnic to take along? All the platters can be packaged up for you to pop in the picnic hamper. 

For hot meal options we have a pizza station we can set up outside your room and provide everything you need to cook sourdough pizzas in a wood fired oven.

Alternatively you can order our Chilli Supper, a slow cooked delicious hug in a bowl served with fluffy Aga jacket potatoes and yummy accompaniments. Dragonfly Cabin and Wildflower Wagon can reheat this over the firepit while Cowshed and Pigsty guests can use the microwave.

If you’re staying in Dragonfly Cabin or Wildflower Wagon, you might want to preorder a firepit pack to get cooking on arrival!

Because it’s all super fresh and homemade by Jo where possible, we do ask for at least 48 hours notice.

All platters are priced at £25 to generously serve 2.

Firepit Packs, Pizza station, Chilli supper and afternoon tea are £35 to serve 2.
