Crafting the Perfect Gluten-Free Welcome Pack for Your Holiday Cottage

Welcoming guests to your holiday cottage isn’t just about providing a comfortable place to stay; it’s about making them feel at home. For those with gluten sensitivities or Coeliac Disease, this means ensuring they have safe, delicious options right from the start. Here’s how you can create a thoughtful and inclusive gluten-free welcome pack that will make your guests’ stay memorable and worry-free.

Understanding Gluten-Free Needs: Before diving into the pack’s contents, it’s important to understand what gluten-free means. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. For individuals with gluten sensitivities or Coeliac Disease, ingesting gluten can cause health issues. Therefore, a gluten-free welcome pack should be free from these ingredients.

1. Start with the Basics – Snacks and Treats: Stock your welcome pack with a variety of gluten-free snacks. This can include: Packaged gluten-free cookies or crackers, fresh fruits, a naturally gluten-free and healthy option, Nuts and seeds (ensure they’re processed in a gluten-free facility).

2. Local Delights: Adding local gluten-free products can give your guests a taste of the area’s cuisine. Consider including: Gluten-free baked goods from a local bakery and locally made gluten-free jams or honey.

3. Refreshing Beverages – Quench your guests’ thirst with a selection of drinks: Bottled water and flavoured seltzers, a refreshing staple. Locally roasted coffee and an assortment of herbal teas, all naturally gluten-free. Optionally, local gluten-free craft beer or cider for adult guests – we would recommend a local brewery whose products are all GF and vegan: Little Ox Brewery – available to buy online on their store or in a wide variety of local stores.

4. Breakfast Essentials – Set them up for a great morning with: Gluten-free cereal or granola. Shelf-stable, dairy-free milk alternatives (like almond or oat milk) that cater to lactose intolerant guests as well.

5. Informative Touches: Include a list of local restaurants that offer gluten-free options, and a small guide on how to read labels for gluten ingredients. This can be immensely helpful for guests unfamiliar with the area.

6. Presentation and Personalisation: Present your welcome pack in a charming basket or box. A personal note explaining the contents and their gluten-free nature adds a warm, personal touch.

Creating a gluten-free welcome pack is an excellent way to show thoughtfulness and care for your guests’ well-being. Not only does it cater to their dietary needs, but it also adds a touch of personalised hospitality that can make their stay at your holiday cottage even more special and memorable.

Remember, the key to a great welcome pack is not just in what you offer, but how you present it. Happy hosting!
