The Garden

Our local gardener Tim Pilgrim tends to the garden weekly, ensuring produce for each and every season. The harvest garden has an array of fresh herbs, salad leaves and vegetables for you to hand pick and use during your stay at the house. A mini orchard featuring pears, apples and quinces, is also the perfect setting for long lunches and dinners under the trees. Surrounding the vegetable patch is a mediterranean garden as well as strawberries, blackberries and raspberries to enjoy all summer long.
