Yesterday, we had a VIP day at Broadfield Court – Café and Vineyard  and it was absolutely wonderful. The sun shone and despite the chilly wind, we really couldn’t have asked for a better weather in early March.

Broadfield Court is set among a 1000 acre farming estate in the heart of Herefordshire and approx 15 minutes drive from us.  Along with the Cafe, Vineyard and Gardens, there is also a farm with a dairy heard of approximately 300 cattle and grow a variety of cereals.  Under Mark’s and Alex’s ownership, Broadfield Court has acquired a reputation as a top class venue ideally equipped for weddings, corporate events, private and public functions, outdoor activities and sporting and cultural entertainment.  With one of the UK’s most mature vineyards, it is home to wines which are available for tasting and sale in our shop or by mail order. The estate also boasts a multi award-winning cafe which concentrates on delivering expertly prepared food using the finest local ingredients, many of which are grown in the walled kitchen garden. It is also home of the “succulent and sensational sauce” that is know to all as Granny Tigg’s!

We were honored to be given a complimentary tour of the extraordinarily beautiful gardens and Vineyards and found the story of how it all began after the war was extremely interesting and thought provoking.  We were also very taken with the huge David Austen Rose garden, one can only imagine what it will look like at the height of summer!  We highly recommend this Tourist attraction/venue. We even sampled the wines! Thank you to Gina and Alex our wonderful hosts.
