The Cottage at Wranghams is a self-catering flat next door to the main house. With unique, beautiful views of the greenery of Diana’s peak it makes lovely base for a break in the country, away from the heat and hustle of Jamestown.
Come and have a meal or tea with us at Wranghams! We offer various options, including ‘home hosting’ meals and afternoon teas on our lawn or in the back conservatory. We aim to use local produce as much as possible, including from our own garden, and we also use our own grown and roasted Wranghams…

It was a damp old day today, but our spirits were raised when a few people showed up for home-hosted tea: homemade spinach bread, banana fritters, medlum juice (medlums are a delicious type of guava, but small and red) were just some of the goodies on offer!

Christmas on St Helena is coffee-picking time! 2021 was a pretty wet year, but that means it was a good year for some of our young coffee bushes. Today we picked several buckets of ripe coffee berries, which we’ll soak overnight tonight and de-skin (“pulp”) tomorrow.

They have no nest – eggs just rest on an indentation in the branch – and the single chick has to cling on, literally for dear life. Should they…
It’s brunch tomorrow, with bread made with fresh basil, feta, olives, and sun-dried tomatoes! And Wranghams coffee, of course! Yum!
Some lucky folks are coming for a home hosted afternoon tea today! Fresh tuna pate, St Helena tomato paste, home baked scones with home made medlum (a type of guava) jam, cappuccino made from fresh roasted Wranghams coffee, all on the menu! Yum!!!
It takes a bit of effort, but it’s worth it – home baked bagels served classic American style with smoked salmon, vegan cream cheese (made with cashews and tahini) and home grown salad for breakfast. All washed down with some delicious home grown and fresh roasted Wranghams St Helena coffee, the best in the world!
We have a few coffee trees on our small plantation, all from the original green-tipped boutbon arabica plants brought from Mocha in Yemem back in the eighteenth century. This year we harvested, pulped, dried.and hulled about 20 kilos – we roast it as we drink it.
