In a corner of the original walled kitchen garden of magnificent Cadhay (G100, tours on Fridays), 50 yards away, are the former Stables and Coach House.
They have been beautifully converted with flair into two good cottages, each with its own small patio and grassy area (table/chairs) overlooking the walled garden.
Inside the walled garden are beautifully kept allotments, fruit trees and a fascinating greenhouse, tended by the resident gardener, one of the friendliest and most knowledgeable you can meet.
Over Whitsun Bank Holiday week in May, a church fête and other charity events and the Nat.
