If you fancy lunch after your Tour & Tasting With us I would highly recommend the Hare and Hounds pub in Waytown only a short way down the road from us with beautiful views of the local countryside in their large garden.
If you want to stay the night in the area I would recommend the excellent Pineapple Farm Camp and Caravan site less than a mile from us.
