The Orchard House
"As you know, our Heritage Orchard is very dear to me, holding equal measures of sentimental value and the chance to preserve an all but lost tradition of fruit growing, beyond grapes, in the Valley. And now, after rebuilding the original farm house, we’re able to continue another tradition dear to me; old fashioned country hospitality, such a welcome escape from day to day life.
There is something completely tangible but difficult to capture in words about being surrounded by the rhythm of the seasons, drawing inspiration for cooking by the food you can see outside your window, and the feeling of being nurtured that slowing life down brings - every reason for us to create Orchard House for you to enjoy."
The Orchard House offers 2 bedroom accommodation, each room with its own bathroom, and comfortably sleeps up to 4 adults. With a beautifully light and spacious kitchen, fully equipped with Maggie’s choice of Miele appliances, the house goes beyond the expected bed and breakfast option for foodies wanting to cook up a storm of local produce during their stay. Guests can feel free to cook outside in the purpose built barbecue area over looking the orchard, choose fresh herbs from the kitchen garden and wander through the fruit trees to pick fresh pears, apples and apricots when the season allows.
A short stroll away through the pear trees is the Farm Shop where many of Maggie’s products along with those from her orchard kitchen, can be tasted along with the wine, cider and gin on offer. Stay for coffee and cake, or a glass of wine and a cheese board overlooking the dam from one of the decks. That’s old fashioned country hospitality!
