Our popular Cottage Catering Service is available to group bookings in The Rookery and Kingfisher Cottage.  Delicious home cooked dishes using seasonal local produce, cooked in-house by Karen and Lorraine and delivered piping hot to your cottage at a pre-arranged time.

“Have stayed in the Kingfisher Barn and keep returning each year now with a group of friends. All rooms ensuite and a great focal sitting and dining area. Excellent accommodation and Karen the host is very accommodating too. Highly recommend the Dinney.”

“We stayed in the Cart,it was spacious comfortable and contains everything you could want. Karen is such a nice friendly and helpful host. Breakfast cooked to order using local produce. The views are amazing from both the master bedroom and living room. The location is amazing and offers peace and quiet. The bed was super comfortable and I am usually a poor sleeper. Could not recommend a stay here enough it’s superb.”

“We stayed at The Rookery for 4 nights. We were a party of 13 a mix of family and friends and found the accommodation was ideal. Set in Beautiful country side & offers lovely views. One of the great things about this property is the space. There are 9 bedrooms all en-suite and all beautifully presented. The kitchen is extremely well equipped including 2 ovens 2 Hobbs & 2 microwaves. It has underfloor heating downstairs which is really efficient and the property was lovely & warm.”
