The Story Behind Quarry Cottage Hampers

Having grown up in Africa then lived in Scotland, Wales and England, with over ten years being in Devon and Cornwall, I have fallen in love with the South West and come to consider it our home.

When my husband’s job as a hospital doctor allowed us to finally stop moving, we chose North Devon to live. Our more settled life has opened the chance for me to start a business, but I was keen to do something family friendly and fitting with our new surroundings.

Best of the South West

Our delightful home, a refurbished classic Devon cottage, is sheltered in the green grounds of an old village quarry, among the rolling hills between Exmoor and the beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton. Idyllic and rural, we love the more relaxed and outdoors ‘camper van’ life that North Devon has to offer, the rugged coastline and the wilds of Exmoor and Dartmoor. An ideal spot for bringing up our young son.

West Country Hampers

Through my time living in Devon and Cornwall I have become increasingly aware of the excellent, independent food and drink produce that is available from within the region. Hence, this business idea grew from a romantic notion to the reality that it is today.

In a time of mass production and numerous market chains, my desire is to represent high quality independent and artisan producers, putting these food and drink collections together in a unique hamper combination that can be delivered throughout the UK.

Whilst numerous companies specialise in produce from either Devon or Cornwall, not many combine the best of both counties, leaving Quarry Cottage Hampers the opportunity to build collections that we are confident you won’t find quite the same anywhere else!
