The sleeping giant was awoken late 2015 and the renovation and restoration project continues. In the first year most of my time and resources were spent reclaiming growing areas and improving the infrastructure of the garden, putting in drainage, paths, beds and an awful lot of clearance and weeding. However, even in that first summer the fruit and vegetable areas and polytunnels were put into production.
It is now, the winter of 2019, we have seen an abundance of seasonal produce, welcomed hundreds of visitors and now we are tackling the winter projects in preparation for the arrival of another busy season.
Our aim is to provide visitors to the estate high quality local, seasonal and fresh fruit and vegetables for sale produced in an environmentally sensitive way, whilst also continuing to develop and restore this fabulous part of the estate.
We are proud of our Kitchen Garden and encourage you to visit us during your stay. Our produce is available to buy direct from the estate gift shop.
