More Than a Day
Our working estate in Somerset has acres of splendid gardens, woodland, farmland and cyder orchards to explore. Stay a night or two, or become a member and see the landscape change throughout the year.
A Feast for The Senses
Discover a feast for all the senses, from garden eateries to daily tours and seasonal workshops, all inspired by the land beneath our feet and the history and tradition of Somerset. We recommend planning ahead to make the most of every visit. Explore formal and productive gardens, get a buzz from the Beezantium or discover a subterranean world in The Story of Gardening. Finally, no day would be complete without stopping at the cellar or the Farm Shop to sample a drop or two of Cyder.
