We are lucky to have a fantastic kitchen garden! This means that you will be eating loads of our fresh, home grown produce when dining with us.
We also have our own beehives in the wildflower meadow and snail paddocks in each bed. Our pond is home to Suffolk’s only native duck – Appleyards, and you will be sure to spot the lovely roaming chickens that supply us with our own Boot Eggs.
One of the questions we get asked most frequently is, 'what kind of dog is Ralph?'
Ralph is a briard, which is an ancient breed of large herding dog from France. They were originally bred to both herd and guard sheep.
We have three sheep - an Icelandic ram and two Hebridean ewes. You'll find them grazing in the wedding paddock - that's up at the top of the hill, just past the pétanque piste.
Grippe is a Common Raven, like the ones in the Tower of London. She's fully grown now and weighs in at 1.1kg.
Grippe flies free at least twice a day and really enjoys tormenting Ralph.
Ravens haven't been seen in Suffolk for over a hundred years but there are now reports of wild pairs returning - perhaps Grippe can find a handsome boy raven to fly with!
