About Us

About Us

Tom and Louisa met whilst pursuing careers on super-yachts based in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Pacific and Asia. Louisa as a chef and Tom as and Engineer and Captain. After 10 years working at sea we married and a couple of years later started a family. Louisa becoming shore-based decided to start her catering business louisaloasby.co.uk to work around the children growing up whilst Tom headed back to work at sea.

Louisa grew up in a bed and breakfast and it seemed like a natural move to create one here at Barton Cottage, utilising all our years of catering and hospitality experience.

We bought our 17th Century Thatched Cottage just 2 years ago and have spent this time extending and renovating the house into what it is today. Tom, Louisa, Oliver and Emilia look forward to welcoming you to stay with us all here at Barton Cottage and wish you a lovely stay with us.
