Our Food

A full English and Continental breakfast is served in the beautiful dining room or on the verandah with a stunning view onto the large garden and the wide open spaces of this well managed 1800 ha farm.


“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast” – John Gunther (American Writer 1901 – 1970)

All breakfasts at Dusk to Dawn are served with a generous helping of good cheer. From the moment that guests walk into the sun-washed dining room in the morning, they can expect to be lavished with a variety of fine food.

Starters vary from fresh berry smoothies to rosemary-infused poached pears and fruity crêpes. Guests can choose a main meal from an extensive menu while listening to the chattering chorus of Dusk to Dawn’s many birds.
