Set in the grounds and overlooked by the magnificent stature of the house, ‘The Walled Garden’ is Carlton Towers’ very own vineyard, born from Lord and Lady Gerald’s passion for wine and dedicated to Lord Gerald’s father Miles, 17th Duke of Norfolk.
Reminiscent of the classic English novel ‘The Secret Garden’, step through the powder-blue gate into the beautiful enclosure teeming with vines, growing two cool climate grape varieties; Auxerrois Colmar and Pinot Noir, which are planned to blend together to make a sparkling white wine. The vines were tenderly planted by Lord Gerald, Lady Emma.
In 2019 we opened the gate to our wonderful labour of love. Overlooked by the Stables Tearoom, Quintessentially English, serving refreshments, cream teas and sweet and savoury treats.
Available to hire privately – the perfect place for intimate dining experience, baby showers, business meetings, wedding breakfasts and craft/workshops.
The tearoom is open 10-4 Friday/Saturday/Sunday. The vineyard and main house are by appointment only or prebooked ticketed events.
