Holidays in Cornwall are truly magical. Long lazy days by the seaside, exploring the countryside or wondering through picturesque villages can seem worlds away from reality and staying in one of Forgotten Houses Holiday Cottages can make the stay even more enjoyable.
To take the strain away from having to do a weekly shop the minute you arrive there are a number of Cornish companies that provide local food deliveries to ensure you have all you need for a week away or a day exploring the beautiful county.
From pasties to picnics, cereal to clotted cream there are a number of local businesses to choose from, here is a round up of our five favourites:
