Lauren Fenwick, Marketing Manager says “The planning has been years in the process and the need for more dining space in particular, has been highlighted by our ever-increasing visitor numbers. By creating more space in the kitchen and café and adding new function rooms, we can now host parties and celebrations as well as more diverse activities such as classes, community activities and office meetings.”
The project, which was begun in January 2020 and has continued despite the logistical challenges presented by the pandemic in the past year, has benefited from funding from the Rural Development Programme for England. This has allowed the team to renovate the historic 18th century stable block sensitively, retaining and enhancing many of the period and heritage features.
Enjoying the prospect of the newly expanded kitchen spaces, is café manager Tom Dodgson “it will be fantastic to be able to cater for different events and bring a new menu into the café, the kitchen is state of the art and will mean that we can create more seasonal dishes using locally sourced produce.”
