Location and contact

The Potting Shed, a down to earth eating house which has been created in the unusual style of a potting shed with a grass roof and decorated with gardening tools. The big dining room is vaulted with a wooden clad ceiling and opens to our beautiful garden which boasts an amazing outside space and a great kids play area as well as a herb and vegetable garden. Open all day from breakfast to Dinner.
