Local Produce

Part of the charm of staying on the estate is the amount of home-grown, seasonal produce available to purchase with the most minimal of food miles as they are within walking distance.

Kitchen Garden: A must visit during your stay, using only the finest seasonal ingredients, you could prepare a variety of dishes from light salads and soups to weekend roasts and vegetable hot pots, all using produce grown in the Kitchen Garden by our very own and extremely talented gardener Richard.

Seasonal boxes from small to large can be pre-ordered ahead of your arrival.

To discuss what’s in season and to place an order, call Richard Van De Peer Tel:
