About Us


Here at Stanbury Cottage we pride ourselves on the quality of service we provide to our customers.


It all started over 25 years ago in Colne, Lancashire when I was running The Parish Tea Rooms in the town. A local nursing home asked if I could prepare a hot dinner each day for one of their residents. Now over a quarter of a century later we are the leading meals on wheels services in the area.


Throughout this time of course, many things change. We used to be called Colne Meals on Wheels as we only served meals in Colne. In the past 15 years this has been extended to cover Burnley, Padiham, Nelson, Earby, Barnoldswick, Trawden, Laneshawbridge, Higham as well as many villages in the area. Our name changed to Stanbury Cottage to reflect this, paying reference to our local heritage.


However, some things never change: The quality of our food and the service we provide to our customers.

If you would like any more information about any of our meal services, please don't hesitate to contact me or any member of the team.
