Foraging & Dining


Foraging has been popular for some years now, with enthusiasm for gathering food from wild and natural places only increasing as we look to reduce our plastic waste and live more sustainably. To forage is to get outside, in your urban or rural environment, to open your eyes and to seek out the food that is growing around you that you can access for free. It’s a way to make a connection between your environment and to the food on your plate; to make nature into a treasure hunt for the tummy.

FORAGING AND DINING ON A COUNTRY ESTATE

Our guests’ love of gardens, history and food has inspired us to create a day which incorporates all three, making a truly unique and memorable experience

Your Experience can include:

  • Guided Tour of the Manor House
  • You are personally invited to a private tour of one of the oldest English estates in the country.
  • Foraging in the Estate - You can then make the most of the stunning parkland and woodland as you are guided by an expert forager who will help you to find the fabulous wild ingredients growing on the estate.
  • Lunch in the Manor House
  • We are delighted to invite you to re-join your host for a delicious lunch in the main dining room, your lunch will include some of what you have foraged, so you can enjoy feasting on the results of your morning exploration.

 

THE DELIGHTS OF FORAGING

Explore the highlights of our beautiful English countryside and surround yourself with nature at one of the stunning estates in the Country.

Upon arrival to the Manor House, you will enjoy a private tour of the house before being taken into the local woodland where your forest foraging will begin.

We have a genuine love of wild British food and there is an abundance of edible plants and mushrooms that grow in our woodlands. You will have the opportunity to learn about wild food identification with one of our professional chefs and expert foragers and source ingredients directly from the land before returning to the house for a glorious lunch where the chef will use your ingredients to create superb dishes.
