Open for business

I am delighted to announce we are preparing for reopening, with our first guests arriving at the beginning of August. Our office is manned and we look forward to receiving your calls and emails with enquiries. Like all other hospitality centres we have had to remain closed until we were confident we could apply and follow Government advice, if you keep up with the news you will be aware these guidelines are constantly changing and as we receive enquiries we are explaining our up to date procedures. With the fantastic help of volunteers from across the county and beyond we have kept the gardens in shape and ready to enjoy, there is always something to do so if you feel you have the time and energy to help us I would love to hear from you.
A warm welcome awaits.
Simon Hudson Director

New arrivals

There was much excitement at Shallowford House at the new arrivals – Bruce and Evan the alpacas. Their job will be to cut the meadow grass and look after the chickens!

They are very inquisitive and will enjoy posing for photographs, but they particularly dislike being touched.
