Always keeping a watchful eye out for any food, Camber checks out what’s growing in the walled garden.
We are excited about the return of our lotus flowers which are on their way as summer sets in.
Our lupins bring beautiful shades of violet, lilac and pink throughout the walled garden.
The Hotel kitchen garden is starting to come into its own and Matt is finding more and more each day…a very happy chef
Camber the hotel dog enjoying the perfume given off under the wisteria arch!
Dog seen running at high speeds around the nature walk….just wish he would stick to the path!!
Lucy tries out our nature walk which is now open to our guests to walk around…..it passes the dew pond, bee hives and a very comfortable bench around the half way mark!
Won for £35 at auction our bench is heading back to the Old Manor helped out by Stephen and is v expensive car…..not sure a tow bar on a Porsche is ever actually supposed to be used….hey ho needs must!
This is perfect for our soon to be opened nature walk!
We have been staring at these glass panels for the past 6 months and today we finally got Roy and Dave (our handymen) to remove them….this has flooded light into the bar area and created some theatre between the two spaces!
Char-grilled baby leeks, crispy soft boiled egg, toast with Somerset brie salad cream….one of two veggie starters on our spring menu!
Camber the dog sees how the two new hives are settling in…..we now have 7 in total!
Now then Camber….is this your handy work???
something a bit different!
bone marrow, pigs cheek, mac and cheese….yummy!
now we just need good weather and a bit of luck!
