Our Award Winning Breakfast
We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded Enjoy England's Breakfast Award.
As only 8% of guest accommodation have received this award, we feel really proud of our achievement! The award recognises hotels and B&Bs that offers guests a quality and varied choice of breakfast, alongside a high level of service and hospitality.
Breakfast at Homelands
This is a lavish affair with an emphasis on fresh local ingredients, and home-made, organic and Fair-Trade Endorsed produce. Eggs are free range from our own chickens, or supplied by a local farm, whilst each morning fresh orange juice and locally pressed apple juice is offered as well as a choice of artisan and sour-dough breads.
Traditional, Modern or Special
Traditional English breakfast is served alongside more modern interpretations or even a daily “special” from our blackboard, such as cold smoked trout and scrambled eggs, porridge with Cotswolds honey, or Continental style cold meats.
Erik Burger considers himself a bit of a “foody” and even makes his own sausages and dry cured bacon using free range Gloucester Old Spot from the local Sudeley Estate - once home to Queen Katherine Parr, the last and only surviving wife of Henry VII.
If you prefer have something lighter: The sideboard offers you a generously varied selection of local cheeses, yoghurt's, fresh fruits, cereals, muesli and granola, and vegetarian, wheat-free and special diets are available on request.
You can finish your breakfast with an excellent espresso, cappuccino, latte, or a cafétière.
Breakfast times: 7.30-9.30 am
If pre-ordered, we are happy to offer:
