At Crackpot Cottage not only do we enjoy the challenge of growing our own fruit and vegetables, we also grab any opportunity to make our own produce to sell, both locally and to our guests.
As well as sauces and preserves, with Emanuela being Italian, we have a passion for Italian food, especially pizzas, which we make from scratch and have proven to be a great success!
We offer a comprehensive choice of suppers and appetisers for our guests, which you can view below.
