Food & Drink
Food is a big part of any holiday in Cornwall. Whether it’s a comforting meal at the end of a long day of exploring, coming together to feast for a special occasion, or sampling some of the local favourites, we want you to have the best. So we’ve compiled the following to make sure you have an amazing food experience while you’re on holiday at Old Lanwarnick.
Welcome hampers for every cottage
After a long drive down to Cornwall, you’ll want to settle in and fill hungry bellies. That’s why we provide a welcome hamper for all our guests, containing fresh, local ingredients to get you started on your stay. Cut a big slab of cake from the local bakery and wash it down with tea and milk from the neighbouring farm. Or cook up an omelette with eggs laid here Old Lanwarnick by our own rescue chickens. And spread butter from the neighbouring farm on a hunk of freshly-baked bread. You’ll be enjoying the Cornish lifestyle in no time.
A host of local shops and supermarkets
When the time comes to venture out and fill the fridge/freezer, you have many options just a short drive away. If like us, you like to support local, independent shops, the surrounding area has lots of places to enjoy. Head to O’Keeffe’s Butchers just 5 minutes away for burgers for the BBQ and sausages for your fry-up. And for all the locally-caught fresh fish Cornwall is famous for, there’s Pengelly’s Fishmonger in Looe just 15 minutes away.
Also in Looe is Quay Side Fresh, a traditional farm shop where you can get everything in one place including fresh fruit and vegetables, meats and cheeses, freshly baked bread, and a huge choice of local pantry items. There’s even a refillable glass bottled milk station and takeaway Cornish tea and coffee for the true local’s experience. Why not combine a shop with a trip to the beach, or a chance to try some locally made Cornish ice cream?
There are many bigger supermarkets nearby as well. Morrisons, Lidl, Sainsbury’s and Tesco are all within a 20-35 minute drive. And if you forget something, there’s the Spar in Pelynt just a few minutes away. Or why not book a supermarket delivery slot right to your front door? All the major supermarkets will deliver to Old Lanwarnick. So there’s no need to forgo your favourites while on holiday.
Local produce delivered to your door

Private chefs and caterers that come to you
And for those extra special occasions, go one step further and have the chef come to you!

Watch them prepare and learn a few tips, or retreat to the garden to soak up the sun. Either way, you get to sit back, open the champagne and enjoy mouth-watering fine dining in your own cottage without having to lift a finger.
