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 and calzone, which we make from scratch and have proven to be a great success!
Our pizzas are part of our supper menu and can also be purchased from frozen to take home. Prices vary. Please ask us for a leaflet.
