Breakfast at Bursley Manor
Breakfast is no longer served at the Bursley Manor, but because it was a B&B before COVID-19 the kitchen is equipped with everything a B&B needs. Peruse the countertops, cabinets, and closets and you’ll find the microwave, a KitchenAid mixer, a Cuisinart food processor, a waffle iron, a Cosori instant pot, an Omega juicer, a blender, a toaster and a SodaStream with bottles – be sure to bring your own CO2. When it comes to hot beverages you’ll choose from a large Keurig, a Nespresso machine, a drip coffee maker, large and small Bialettis, a French press and an electric kettle. There’s also everything you need in terms of pots and pans, bakeware, utensils, dishes, glasses, cups and cutlery, with plastic and paper options for outside. There’s even a lobster pot filled with all the equipment for your own lobster feast – all you have to do is pick up the lobsters at Market Basket, they’ll even cook them for you! If you don’t find something you need, just ask me, I’m likely to have it in storage.
The kitchen starts each season stocked with spices and a variety of staples. You’re welcome to use anything you find and to leave anything nonperishable for the next guests to enjoy.
On the South Patio you’ll find picnic tables to seat 18 and a fire pit surrounded by lounge chairs. On the East Patio, there’s a pub table with stools for four, a chiminea with two lounge chairs, a glass table for up to six, and a picnic table for eight. Umbrellas are supplied for all five patio tables, and you may help yourself to firewood from the Holzhaus piles behind the carriage house.
