Join the celebrated gardener Susan Cunliffe-Lister for a two course lunch, garden talk over coffee and then a guided tour of the grounds. Each lunch is themed on either the parkland and lakes or the walled garden. The parkland lunches concentrate on the restoration of the landscape and the planting programme in the grounds. Susan will give an insight into her gardening style, and guests will be given a tour up to the parkland to view the daffodils or rhododendrons and azaleas.
The menus for the walled garden lunches will include several ingredients from the garden, with recipe cards from our chef Simon Crannage. Susan will explain her choice of produce, with tips for cultivation and harvesting.
£35 per person (includes a two course lunch, coffee, talk and guided tour). The lunch starts at 12.30 with coffee in the Drawing Room which then leads in to lunch.
