Longshaw Kitchen Garden

Women working in the kitchen garden

Run by volunteers, our kitchen garden provides seasonal produce for the tea-room. It also showcases what it's possible to grow at the dizzy altitude of 331m (1084 ft). Year round, it's a lovely place to have a quiet wander.

So where is it?

It's tucked away behind the tea-room, but it's easy to find and once you know it's there you'll want to go and check on progress every time you visit Longshaw.

Simply turn left out of the tea-room, turn left again at the corner of the buildings and walk into the old stableyard.  You'll see some steps ahead of you - go up these and into the kitchen garden!

Who looks after it?

Every Thursday, a dedicated team of volunteers swoop into action and tend the kitchen garden.  They do everything from planning and planting to weeding and harvesting.  Over the years, they've worked out what grows and what doesn't in the relatively high altitude of Longshaw.
