"People should live where apple trees grow"
Edith Bolton 1923
There always seems room for another tree - so far there are at least 80 in the orchard, from more than 30 vairieties of heritage apples mixed in with mulberry, quince, fig, damson, plum, gage and pear trees.
This ever expanding orchard provides the inspiration for our small orchard design business - we sell any surplus grafts from these trees.
We use the apples for our own craft cider, we let the grass grow to become a traditional hay meadow and we enjoy the spectacular views down the Vale.
