bichfield

Bichfield near Belsay is a beautiful maturing garden, set around a Medieval Pele tower, with stunning water features, trout lake, woodland, meadow, walled gardens, one white and sented the other with an African theme. The kitchen garden bursts with edible flowers, colourful vegetables and a cutting garden. The original tower was built in the 12th century to defend against the picts from the north, with a manor house added in the 1600’s. A simple wooden trestle table and stacking tubular chairs cut a stark contrast amidst the manicured lawns and lush herbaceous borders, whilst the contrasting bright French stripes of our deckchairs lend a fresh perspective to the rill and ornamental pond.

 

 

Under the dappled shade of an old beech tree, a giant white mosquito net makes a cool and peaceful little haven for a relaxing drink, or afternoon snooze in a French striped deckchair...

There are three holiday cottages available to rent in the grounds of Bichfield visit
