Havisham Nightstand


We provide;

  • olive oil, salt and pepper
  • tea, coffee, milk, sugar and honey

We are otherwise a self-catered retreat, where guests are expected to feed themselves.

Because time here is dedicated to creating, we are happy to stock the kitchen on your behalf to avoid half-days lost in the supermarket. In fact, we encourage it.

When you book, we send you an order form with some suggested items. You can customise the order as much or as little as you wish. You reimburse us for your order when you arrive, and your supplies are here waiting for you.

If you prefer to organise your own food there is a small but well stocked shop in the village where you can buy:

  • a wide selection of hand-made / butchered local meat and meat products
  • eggs
  • basic fruits and vegetables (whatever is in season)
  • dried foods – pasta, dried legumes, crackers, stock cubes
  • canned foods – vegetables, fish, legumes
  • snacks – crisps and peanuts
  • milk, cheese and butter
  • chocolate and biscuits
  • wine, beer and spirits
  • some frozen prepared foods (and fish)

Our local restaurant – two minutes away on foot – serves hearty, local fare at very reasonable prices.
