Rosy red apples growing in the orchard at Shedbush Farmhouse

Shedbush Farmhouse

The Dorset countryside is idyllic in the autumn and where better to enjoy it than a picture perfect farmhouse on the Golden Cap Estate? There's an orchard with big rosy apples (some of which are used by our rangers to make cider on the old apple press here) and a horse chestnut tree in the grounds for playing conkers. The hedgerows all around the house are full of rosehips and blackberries - some of autumn's finest harvest.
