Self-catering properties have come a long way in recent years and topping the list of luxury beachside boltholes is Cornwall’s stunning Fentadfriddle. It’s great to have the opportunity to get family or friends together and catch up over a delicious home cooked meal without the pressure to go out and sample the local restaurants, but it’s your holiday after all and you should be entitled to at least one night off. Luckily, to celebrate the launch of The Harbour Kitchen and the forthcoming May Bank Holiday, Fentafriddle have teamed up with the Harbour Restaurant’s latest venture to entertain you and your guest with an evening of home-cooked food without you even having to lift a finger.
This May when you book in to Fentafriddle, Little Fentafriddle or Tremanon, Emily Scott, owner and celebrated chef of the Harbour Restaurant will prepare an evening meal for your whole party, meaning you can sit back, relax and not have to worry about how many mouths you have to feed. Each meal will come with cooking instructions but they are so well prepared by Emily that most dishes only have to be popped in the oven – you may even be able to pass them off as your own!
Sourcing many of her ingredients locally, Emily’s menus change with the seasons and are heavily inspired by the delicious local seafood and fresh Cornish produce they are famed for. Starters could be anything from tasty Port Issac Crab Cakes with Lemon Aioli, to fresh Scallops in Lemon, Parsley and Garlic. A must for seafood fans, the mains follow suit with everything from delicate lemon sole to classic cod making the cut. Fish phobic guests will be pleased to hear there are meat options available too such as succulent Loin of Lamb with Apricot Mint Sauce and Spicy Couscous, as well as some delicious vegetarian dishes. A range of fine desserts will finish off your evening perfectly whether you go for creamy Panna Cotta or indulgent Gateau St Vincent.
Children are very welcome to stay at any of Fentafriddle’s three properties and given the location of sprawling beaches and beautiful English countryside, we couldn’t think of anywhere better to take them for a Bank Holiday break in the UK. The Harbour Kitchen’s food however is definitely tailored to a more adult palette, so if you have very young children or fuss pots in tow you may want to call in the pizzas and wait till they’re tucked up in bed to enjoy your fine dining feast.
