From a relaxing post-walk coffee and cake, to a very special classic dining experience in the stunningly restored formal rooms of the 18th Century mansion, our beautifully-cooked food is served at a price that is fair for everyone from producer to guest.
Source, a ‘farm to fork’ concept, takes advantage of the wonderful array of quality, locally-sourced meats, fish and freshly-grown produce – all from within a twenty mile radius of the House.
