Breakfast at Aquila Heights

"The breakfasts are legendary" - The Poole Family, October 2019

"The first Guest House we have stayed in that fully caters for gluten free" - LynnC, TripAdvisor, March 2018

During the current situation, our breakfast room has been re-arranged to allow for social distancing. 

Breakfast is always an important time at Aquila Heights as we seek to give all our guests a special start to each day. We use good quality ingredients, locally sourced where possible, and everything is always cooked freshly to order.

Gluten free, wheat free, dairy free and lactose free alternatives are always available but please let us know in advance so that we can be fully prepared to look after your specific requirements.

Breakfast is served between 8am-9.30am daily.

Our Local Suppliers

Our dry-cured bacon and sausages, using pork from three Dorset farms, are handmade by our local butcher, Dorset's Kiwi Butcher, literally just around the corner in Maud Road. Our butcher also supplies our local free range eggs.

Our wide range of jams and marmalades are hand cooked in small batches by The Cherry Tree in Bridport and From Dorset with Love in Blandford.

Our biscuits are supplied by Moore's Dorset Biscuits in Bridport. We also stock Dorset Tea, Dorset Cereals, and hand-blended muesli from Down to Earth in Dorchester.
