A Country Estate, Reimagined
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.
We have a host of family friendly activities running from 29 March - 14 April, including an Easter Trail for little ones and our Forest School Holiday Club. Join a Children’s Woodland Tour on weekdays during half term or pre-book a creative workshop on 2 or 9 April.
The Farm Shop will be brimming with treats, roasting joints and Bakery favourites and our House & Garden Shop filled with fresh spring homewares and garden essentials. Dig into seasonal specials at our estate eateries and don’t miss the hot cross bun gelato at the Gelateria
Easter Weekend itself, our chefs will be firing up the BBQs on 29, 30, 31 March & 1 April - so if the sun is shining, you can perch up in the gardens and take in the views.

Dine at The Botanical Rooms
Enjoy elegant and seasonal dining, inspired by and gathered from your surroundings. Chef Matt Heeley invites you to feast on estate vegetables, the choicest cuts from the salt room and dayboat fish from the Dorset coast. Savour the tasting menu, paired with Fine Cyder or something special from the house cellar.
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.
