Our private walled garden at the rear of our cottage backs on to a woodland so is often visited by a wide variety of birds and butterflies. Both the front and back garden are used occasionally for workshops run throughout the year. Paul has planted up the back garden with plants from Sussex Prairies this year which has added to its charm.
Albury Vineyard is Surrey’s only organic vineyard, producing outstanding English sparkling wine from grapes grown in the beautiful Surrey Hills. Originally famed for their Silent Pool Rosé which was served on the Royal Barge to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee in 2012, Albury Estate sparkling wines have since gone on to win numerous international awards and are featured on the wine lists of some of the country’s best restaurants. The vineyard is located on the Southern slopes of the North Downs in the beautiful Surrey Hills, just outside Guildford on the A25 towards Dorking. It provides the perfect setting for outdoor experiences and to enjoy food and wine in the tasting room.
Flitton’s Nursery is a family run plant nursery established in 1964. Lorraine run’s Willow Workshops here throughout the year on a large field at the rear of the nursery.
When the weather turns cold toward the end of the year the workshops move inside one of the heated poly-tunnels which is great for Christmas Workshops! In addition to refreshments Lorraine may provide the nursery has its own on-site coffee shop, Blossoms where you can pre-order an afternoon tea or tuck into finger sandwiches, savoury treats and fruit scones.
