We are thrilled to say that, following the Government's announcement confirming that hospitality venues are permitted to re-open from July 5, we will very soon be able to welcome you back, or indeed welcome you for the very first time, to River Cottage HQ.
We know that, more than ever, you want to spend time with your family and friends, eating delicious food and enjoying each other’s company in uniquely special surroundings. We have put a great deal of thought into how to offer you a truly exceptional experience here at River Cottage. We also take our responsibility for your well-being extremely seriously. Luckily one thing we are blessed with here is SPACE. We have almost 100 acres here on the farm, and we have been meticulously planning our re-opening to make the most of it. We have created new paths, resting places and secret spots to sit and picnic, either basking in the sun, or sheltering the in the shade, so you can enjoy our wonderful food while taking in the truly glorious view of our East Devon Countryside.
And we have created a selection of fantastic new events with a range of offerings, all of which can be enjoyed in the open air. Depending on the event, you can choose between a table and chairs set up in one of our uniquely atmospheric places, or a carefully prepared picnic spot for eating on your own blankets and rugs put down on the grass. All of these new events are leisurely affairs allowing you plenty of time to explore the farm and gardens before (or after) settling down to your chosen dining experience.
We have wet weather completely covered too, with carefully distanced spaces in our barns and yurts, and various newly covered areas to keep you comfortable and cosy should the weather take a turn for the worse.
As always, we are thrilled to be working with our friends and neighbours in the growing community, to bring you the very best local and organic produce, to serve alongside what we are growing here on the farm.
If you have an existing booked for an event this summer we will be in touch shortly with details of how your event will run. We kindly ask you that you wait to hear from us and we will be in touch as soon as we can.
We hope to see you here very soon for an unforgettable River Cottage feast.
Wishing you all the very best,
