Your gourmet three course breakfast at Cotswold is an event to remember with all sorts of delicious treats laid out to tempt you on the buffet from freshly made fruit salad, local cheeses or our special dish of the day as well as the famous Cotswold cooked selection. <<Sample Breakfast Menu>>
Breakfast can be enjoyed in a number of places and a favourite is the large sunny terrace with panoramic views of the Pinnacles and the Kauaeranga river. Here you can sit back and breath in the peace and tranquility of Cotswold while our beautiful tame doves coo gently on the lawns below. On cool or cloudy days, breakfast is served in our elegant dining room where you have the chance to savour the graceful charm of Cotswold while enjoying amazing views through the French doors across to the sparkling waters of the Firth of Thames.
Special diets are catered for (eg. Vegetarian, Gluten Free and Lactose Intolerant)
Dinner at Cotswold is a speciality <<Sample Evening Meal>>
Jacqui (a qualified chef) will cook you one of her specialities - maybe you are arriving late and just want a simple supper of hot home-made bread served with a selection of spreads and olive oil to dip at while sipping a glass of wine?
For a really memorable meal try one of Jacqui's specialities - Hauraki snapper, grilled local lamb served with a Jacqui's own special sauce or her very own Cotswold chicken.
Whatever your taste, dinners at Cotswold are a real treat after a full day of fun and adventure and you don't have to worry about having that glass of wine with your dinner, you can bring your own or choose from our small selection.
On summer evenings a New Zealand BBQ is a great favourite and our deluxe BBQ packs are also available for you to purchase by prior arrangement and of course a Cotswold BBQ package is something quite special, with a selection of meats, freshly made salad, home baked bread and local cheese. Our sunny guest BBQ area with stunning views of ocean and mountains is the perfect place to end the day.
