How fast time passes. On our last blog Sheila had just become Nanny to Jack. Now she has 3 grandchildren, Jack has a sister called Ella and Julia is proud Mummy of William.

Elspeth Cat  moved to a new house with Julia and her family and within days Bandit (black and white with one eye and a cellophane fetish) moved in and made himself at home. He was officially adopted last summer and is very much at home around the Nursery and the coffee shop garden.

When visiting us please check your car as you leave as he is prone to jumping into cars and recently was rescued from Tescos! Thanks.

The gift shop is full of lovely spring lines and gifts,  and coming soon…..really exciting a new chocolate product that has to be seen to be believed!  Hope to get some pics on when the stock arrives. Lots of lovely plants too.

The Secret garden is gearing up for spring and already the courtyard is filling up with customers eager to enjoy the better weather. Heaters have been installed around the area for cooler days.

Ever popular- our jugs of Pimms to enjoy with friends, or a refreshing bottle of Prosecco is lovely at any time of day. Come sit and relax with us.

Outside catering has gone from strength to strength, both for business and also for private parties and celebrations. You can now buy our yummy home made sausage rolls to take away along with Jane’s delicious cakes.

The function room and marquee continue to be in demand. There are currently two breakfast clubs and lots of evening parties; birthdays, christenings, baby showers- there is always something to celebrate!

Wendy joined us a year ago and is keen to organise another Strawberry tea this summer as well as live music on some summer Sundays. Watch this space.

If you are reading this you will have seen our lovely new websites. We hope you like it and find it useful.

They have been designed and built by a local lady Amanda (<a title="Talk To Phoenix" href="http://www gabapentin 400”> who has been a joy to work with; thanks for all your input and hard work Amanda.
