Community

For the food that we cannot produce ourselves we support local independant retailers and farmshops. We recommend restaurants and cafes that are within a 15 mile radius of our property and that we know well. We recommend family owned attractions and trips out in the local area, such as Forde Abbey, East Lambrook Manor, Perry's Cider and John Leach pottery at Mulchelney, walking the Liberty & Parrett trails and encourage the use of the cycling routes around South Somerset.
We encourage visits to local artists and potters and we support Somerset Arts week which occurs annually in September. We attend the South Somerset Council's leaflet distribution event to keep us up to date with what's going on locally. Mary & her sister are founding members of 'Crewkerne in Bloom' which won Gold in 2019. Now trying to re-wild Crewkerne and it's 600 yr old churchyard.
We host the annual Summer Plant Fair organised by the Somerset group of the Hardy Plant Society. We support the local schools by attending their fund raising events and being involved with the Parents and Friends Association.
