The valley climate, especially the long hot summers, allows us to grow
a wide range of fruit and vegetables. As well as the fruit you can't grow
back in Britain, we really appreciate the summer annuals, tomatoes, peppers,
courgettes, aubergines, arriving early and lasting well into the Autumn.
Fruit and vegetables are available to guests along with fresh herbs picked on the doorstep.
We also sell other farm produce such as wine, honey and fruit preserves.
