Delicious Ways to Celebrate a Special Occasion

When it comes to a holiday, the food is almost as important as the holiday home you’re staying in. When there’s a special occasion to celebrate, finding the right restaurants or planning the perfect party becomes even more essential.


Private Chef

Not only does a Private Chef cook your favourite dishes, with a menu specially designed for you, they even do the washing up! And why not hire a waiter (standard for groups of 5+) to top your wine up as the night goes on? This way you won’t even have to leave the beautiful, luxurious property you have rented for your mini break with friends or week holiday with the family. It generally works out a lot cheaper than going out too, as there are no taxis involved, no baby sitter fees, and you can supply your own wine. Our concierge team has great connections with top chefs in Cornwall and Devon, so sit back and leave it to the experts to arrange your big night in.


Gourmet Chef Prepared Meals

Chef-prepared meals take all the hassle out of hosting dinners, saving you time on buying and preparing the food. Our chefs can buy and prepare your chosen menu, delivering it to your door allowing you to pop it in the oven following the simple instructions at your leisure. Our private chefs offer an extensive choice of dishes to choose from and can tailor the menu to suit your preferences and any dietary needs within your group.

There are a number of gourmet delivery services, such as Life, Fork and Spoon, which was created by celebratory Chef James Martin, who can create a range of dishes to suit your taste buds and bring it straight to your door step. Whether it be a 3-course birthday dinner party for twelve, or romantic anniversary meal for two, the only aspect you’ll have to worry about for the evening is entertainment and what you will have to drink!


In-House Cooking Courses

If you prefer to cook yourself but want to improve your skills, or maybe even just fancy something a little different, then here at Perfect Stays we can arrange for one of our top chefs to come to you and show you the way. Choose from patisserie and bread making courses, French cooking, game, Indian and Thai or even cupcake and pizza parties for the kids. This a great activity for the family and the best part is getting to try out your new found skills for lunch or dinner.


Wood Fired Pizza Experience

A really fun, interactive foodie experience – particular if the weather is nice – is a Wood Fired Pizza Experience. It’s growing in popularity in Cornwall in recent years, and you can get involved as much or as little as you like, with pizzas only taking 90 seconds to cook. This is a great way to spend time with your family or to celebrate a birthday. Two companies which we would recommend are Wild Bake and Kernow Forno – both come out to your property with all the equipment needed as well as the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Kernow Forno bring their own marquee and specialise in larger groups whereas Wild Bake bring their own converted horse trailer and can make other delicious authentic street foods as well as pizza.


Pop Up Restaurant

An innovative catering idea, this fun and exciting experience doesn’t have to be at the property you’ve rented. As long as the vehicle can get relatively close to your chosen location you can dine on your favourite beach, in the woods, on a cliff top, a special sentimental place or even just the luxurious property’s garden that you have rented.



If you’d prefer to dine out and know exactly where you want to go our concierge team are on hand to book your table, recommend babysitters arrange your taxi. If you’re not sure where you want to go, our team have tried and tested most of the restaurants themselves (it’s a hard job, but we’re just that dedicated) and can help you choose the best eateries.


Whatever the occasion, our in-house concierge team can make the arrangements for you. Browse our concierge services here, or call us to discuss your upcoming holiday on 01208 895570.
