Hearty Home-Grown Produce, Travelling from Plot to Plate

A series of raised beds and vegetable patches filled with sumptuous fruit, vegetables and herbs

The Edible Garden is part of Wynyard Hall’s commitment to sustainable development. The produce grown within it is harvested and travels just a few footsteps to the venue’s kitchen, where it is used by the chefs to create delicious dishes served in the Wellington Restaurant and Gardens’ Café – there really is no better demonstration of plot to plate.

Apple picking

The home-grown produce changes seasonally, but includes root vegetables, salad ingredients, citrus fruits and herbs. The herbaceous plants offer a haven for bees and butterflies. During the summer months, you’ll see them fluttering around the flowering chives. They are partial to borage, lavender, sage and thyme too!

Victorian inspired Glasshouse

The Edible Garden contains The Glasshouse, a stunning construction inspired by the Londonderry’s greenhouse that was used to grow citrus fruits. It is crafted from 224 glazed sections, and is laden with rustic Indian flag stones. Step inside and discover a beautiful collection of luxury homeware and gifts.

wire sculpture of Hambletonian

Look out for the impressive wire sculpture of Hambletonian, Sir Henry Vane Tempest’s famous racehorse, said to be the greatest racehorse of the 18th century. The installation was commissioned to mark the opening of the Edible Garden in 2016, and was crafted by local artist Emma Stothard.
