Cornish Food Boxes


If you would like to have a food box with nourishing and locally sourced food delivered to your self-catering accommodation at Pengelly Retreat, then we recommend ordering from the Cornish Food Box Company.

The company is run by Tor & Lucy who set up in December 2010 with the simple aim of making it as easy as possible for people to buy Cornish food and drink – perfect for an authentic holiday in Cornwall.

They offer a mouth-watering array of Cornish produce including locally sourced meat, fish, dairy, baked goods, fruit and vegetables, plus a wide range of artisan products and store cupboard treats which you can enjoy in your lakeside retreat. In their words “food we can feel good about” with all food grown, reared, caught or made in Cornwall from 150 local producers and farmers.

You can choose from their signature Food Boxes such as BBQ boxes or the Mini Family Food Box which contains all 1-2 people need for a week.  Alternatively, you can tailor-make your Food Box to your specific requirements by substituting elements or creating your own box from scratch.

Their drivers can liaise with us on delivery times, so you don’t have to worry about being here at a specific time and your food box can be ready and waiting for you on arrival at your luxury yurt or log cabin.

Usually, if you are arriving with us on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday then you can place your order with Cornish Food Box over the phone on 01872 211533 or online at their website.

Delivery dates can vary so it’s easiest to give them a quick call on 01872 21153 to check if your required date is available.  The ladies that run the company are really friendly and will talk you through what foods are in season and available.

Please note that for any order with Cornish Food Box there is a minimum spend of £20 plus a delivery fee of £1.50. To get a view of what they can offer then take a look at their website.
