The Samling Luxury Country Hotel in the Lake District


Old Orchards sweep around the edges of our Kitchen Garden to meet new additions of Damson, Old Cumbrian apple varieties and a nuttery.

The wildlife is as enthusiastic about reaping the harvests as we are – in suitably Beatrix Potter tradition.

The greenhouse is a safe haven for more tender varieties of veg and micro greens, including cucumelons – though we did find crows trying to drag the net covering off the vents one evening. Vigilance is necessary when you garden cheek by jowl with a healthy wildlife population.

The gardeners work with the chefs to plan a year’s worth of seed-ordering and planting with a view to enhancing our menus. Even the worker bees graze our wildflower meadows to produce generous amounts of honey for desserts and cocktails
