“I’m delighted to welcome you to The Cottage Kitchen. It’s been a long time coming, but I suppose I have been busy with Cottage Delight in the last 40 years.

Cottage Kitchen is a fabulous countryside café and farm shop and it’s where we can share with you some of the best products from Cottage Delight (you knew that was coming didn’t you) – and why not, I’m proud of everything we do at Cottage Delight, sourcing quality ingredients and creating wonderful tasty foods. And we found some great local suppliers to work with too, so I’m confident you’ll really enjoy the whole experience.

If you love good food as much as I do (my wife tells me Cottage Kitchen is going to do nothing for my expanding waistline) I know you are going to love it here.”

Our Story

Nigel Cope founded Cottage Delight back in 1974 delivering homemade fudge by van to local independent traders.

That fudge recipe is still in use today and is a firm favourite with our customers. Cottage Delight now offers many more fudge flavours and proudly boasts more than 700 gourmet products in its range, many of them produced at our premises in Leek using traditional recipes, including our hand poured Strawberry Extra Jam.

You can try our tasty produce here in the café but if you would like to take some home, you can buy our produce in the farm shop before you leave.
