It’s no secret that guests like surprises, especially if their holiday is to celebrate a special occasion. Why not add to your experience and upsell added extras by including wine, hampers or little gifts available for guests to purchase, or even just as a nice surprise. Whilst many of our owners will already be sourcing lovely local produce, you may have to go a little further afield for something extra special. But our advice would be to keep it British!

Here are some lovely independent British companies with great values and a heart-warming offering:

Great British Florist

These pro-British flowers can be delivered next-day nationwide from their farm floristry in the Heart of Herefordshire. Award-Winning Specialists in posies, bouquets, wedding flowers, flowers for funerals and cut flower boxes.

Three Choirs Vineyard

Founded in 1973 when local wine retailer Alan McKechnie started harvesting the vines on his small fruit farm. Today with 30 hectares, a visitor centre, restaurant and accommodation listed with our very own Sawday’s, Three-choirs is one of the UK’s leading producers of English wine.

You can buy their wine directly from their website and receive a 10% discount when buying 12 bottles or more.

Booja-Booja Chocolates

Booja-Booja are an independent company based in Norfolk who began making chocolates in 1999. They use a minimal number of simple organic ingredients and everything is vegan, Gluten and Soya-free – the perfect solution for all guests!

Of course, if you already home-make your chocolates, cut your own fresh flowers or press your own grapes, then keep it up. There’s nothing quite like a hand-made touch!
