We work closely with Caterbirds, one of our local catering companies. They can arrange canapés, drinks, hot or cold buffet, sit down lunch or dinner – whatever type of meal you’re looking for. They are flexible and offer a personal approach, making sure there is a solution for all sizes of party and budget.
We can also arrange for delivery of homemade ready-cooked meals direct to your door. All you have to do is heat them up. Great food by phone, such a treat! We have an excellent team of helpers who know the house well and can wash up, help prepare food and so on by arrangement.
A cook can also be arranged. We are fortunate to have a talented friend, Evie Watson, who cooks professionally. This can be another cost-effective solution.
The two cottages at Orroland – Cutlar’s Lodge and Abbotsway Cottage – are ideal for a romantic honeymoon. When you come through the gates to Orroland, you are totally secluded from the outside world.
