Kids Off Grid – Campfire Cook-Ups

If you’re a kid on holiday with us, you might like to cook up a storm for your friends and family (with some adult help of course!).

Get in touch to view our menu with lots of savoury and sweet options to choose from.

All food boxes and campfire suppers need pre ordering– we ask that you place your order at least 24 hours in advance. If you’re ordering picnics or teas, we need to make sure our chef is available as we book her especially so we need as much notice as possible – that’s why we send you our menus two weeks before your holiday so you can make your choices and book ahead.

No, our shop is a tuck shop with drinks, snacks and treats. There is also a limited range of store cupboard essentials and emergency supplies. We don’t stock fresh food in order to prevent food waste – so all fresh food including fresh milk needs pre-ordering at least 24 hours in advance.

Your campfire suppers will need reheating on the campfire or inside stove and rice and pasta will need cooking. Breakfast and BBQ boxes contain all the ingredients needed for your meal – but you’ll need to cook them yourself.

Each of our cabins and cottages has its own firepit with full equipment for BBQing. We provide a first supply of logs for your fire; more are available at our honesty shop along with charcoal.

What a truly fabulous place. The organisation was second to none. The location was magical despite the weather. Cosy and warm, spotlessly clean, great hot tub. We ordered various food items in advance which were really tasty, great value with generous portions. Our host were friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed our time to disconnect. Thank you Swallowtail!
