Dinner – please tell us if you’d like dinner

Carolyn is a self-taught intuitive cook and everything is cooked on and in her AGA. The no-choice “garden menu” changes constantly and evolves from whatever is available on the day. All of our food is local, fresh and seasonal – most from Lower Buckton’s Kitchen Garden and environs. Full of fresh and natural flavours, anything which is not grown by Henry is locally sought, bought and caught for its quality and is quite often organic. No food is bought from any multi-national super-markets. We prefer to support local independent producers, suppliers and shops thus contributing to our local community and economy of the rural country.

  • All diets are catered for – please try and let us know in advance of either any special requirements or food likes, loves and hates………
  • Lower Buckton is unlicensed – so do bring your own wines – there’s no corkage and a huge cellar to fill and Henry will prepare and serve them just as you like.
  • Four course dinner with pre-dinner titbits and after dinner coffee with home-made chocolates is £35.00 each.
  • Lunches and Picnics are prepared and made to order – from a feast to a sandwich – tell us what you’d like.

If you plan to arrive late in the evening and have no time to stop for dinner on your way, you may like us to prepare some food for when you get here. Presented on a large platter, with plates, cutlery & white cotton napkins all ready for you to enjoy at your leisure. Remember to bring some wine. Here is a couple of ideas.

Cheese and Pie Selection £30.00

Dogs by arrangement

Lower Buckton’s a Dog Friendly Bed & Breakfast recommended by Sawday’s Special Places to Stay 2016

Dogs are welcome to sleep in the kennel, a straw-bedded stable and owners’ vehicles.

If you’d prefer your dog to sleep with you in your room, please ask. We make a charge of £10.00 a night. Please bring own bedding and preferably a dog-cage.

We would not want any doggy-friends to miss out on the wonderful walks in every direction from our door and we really do want everyone to be happy! Please do not allow dogs to fight with our dog, chase our cats, all of whom live outside, chase the hens which free-range, chase the horses in the field and any neighbours’ farm stock – not a good idea! Dogs must be on leads in the car parking area and outside of the house on the grassed areas. They’re welcome to run free in the paddocks (beware of horses and sheep).

Also there is either an excellent, luxury kennels just down the lane or an exceedingly accommodating friend who takes in ‘holiday dogs’ to her own home just up the lane. These are useful services for those who like to have their dog on holiday but occasionally require some respite whilst out site-seeing or shopping especially during hot weather. Please ask for details and prices.

Children by negotiation

Two of the rooms have double sofa-beds for children aged twelve years and under – we also have a cot with allergy-free mattress for hire – please ask for details.

Unlike the dogs, we have discovered it is preferred to have children sleep in the house! Therefore as Lower Buckton is primarily a retreat for those seeking peace and quiet and an escape from the everyday life of business, city and (often!) family life we take in consideration the wishes of other guests at the time. Saying that, we have had the most delightful children staying at Lower Buckton and they certainly appear to enjoy and thrive here: helping to dig vegetables, feeding horses, chasing cats and we do have badminton, clock golf, swings, boules, cricket bats/stumps and croquet to keep them busy in the fresh air. Sometimes it’s possible to serve high teas for the younger children.
