News from Wyken
Wyken Hall Gardens
Our gardens are now open daily from 2-6pm EXCEPT Saturdays when they are closed to the public.
We are pleased to be a Royal Horticultural Society Partner Garden as well as one of Garden News’ Top 100 Gardens in the UK.
Last year Pip Green took over as Head Gardener, returning to her home ground in Suffolk after a 20-year stint in gardens on the west coast of America. Joining her in the garden is Alex Fricker, fresh from Otley College.
Rugs from Sweden
Nothing lifts a room like a new rug and we have just received a new collection from Brita Sweden, a family run company that produces vibrantly coloured rugs made from recycled plastic bottles. They look and feel like natural fibre rugs but are great for the planet and heavenly underfoot. Better still, they are great indoors but perfect for outdoor terraces and verandas.
Farms and restaurants are greedy users of energy. We devour a terrifying amount of electricity. We hope we can slash our energy bills and also help the planet because we have just installed ground mounted solar panels which will supply over one-third of our electricity. They are discreetly placed near the reservoir (thanks to East Green Energy in Suffolk) and all we want now is for the sun to shine.
Our Wyken home blend is exclusively made for us by Bury St Edmunds based coffee roasters Frank & Earnest. It is an ethically sourced blend of 60% Honduran, 30% Columbian and 10% Ethiopian beans. Hand roasted to create a deep, rich and smooth flavour, it is bright and fruity with notes of chocolate and caramel. Enjoy it in our Leaping Hare Restaurant and Café or grab a takeaway at our Bullpen on the Farmers’ Market each Saturday morning. If you love it as much as we do then you can also pick up a freshly roasted pack in our Country Store.
