Farm & Gardens

Back in 1974, only two trees stood within the grounds of South Farm, forlorn against the rural farm backdrop. Now, over 700 trees and more than a mile of hedges create the oasis which our Wedding couples and their guests enjoy.

Today, with the evolution and maturity of the gardens, visitors can enjoy the colour and interest provided throughout the year by following grass and wildflower pathways which wind through willow arches to the pond and water garden or by relaxing on the lawns and sun terrace. The more formal designs of the herb and vegetable gardens follow through from the sun terrace linking the gardens to the smallholding.

Beyond the gardens spread our very productive smallholding, growing an extraordinary range of unusual and traditional vegetables, fruit and herbs as well as free range eggs and pork. It supplies a remarkable 80% of our annual fruit and vegetable needs.
