Hello February! We can’t wait for it to warm up as we move into Spring!

We have lots of new suppliers, products and ranges for you to try, including Muffinz, at an introductory offer of £1.25 each and Brew Tea Co English Breakfast Tea at an introductory offer of £2.95 each.

Have you seen the changes in the cafe? We have updated the paint colours and there is a new seating bench in the family room! We are so pleased with all the positive feedback and over the next few weeks the final stages will be completed.

We have our Snowdrop Walk open again for the month of February, 10am-2pm daily.  This gives a great opportunity to enjoy a walk through the peaceful walled garden and the woods. The walk is free to enjoy but if you wish to make a donation there is a collection tin and any money raised will go towards the upkeep of the woods. We advise suitable footwear as the path is uneven and there is a family of rabbits living in the woods who keep digging holes! Due to this, the walk is unsuitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
