It has been a long while since the last update; predominately down to the fact that we have been intensely busy working hard to get to where we are now. Last week we finally opened our doors for the first time; and our lowly "shed" has become a modest, yet inviting and unique wine cabin. We have filled our shelves with a superb collection of wines personally tasted to ensure there is a top notch bottle for all wine lovers and novices alike. We are experimenting with some select mixers and cocktails from good old G&T, Peach Bellini's to a more Italian themed Rose, Elderflower and fresh mint concoction. All to enjoy here at Stydd.
We also have Bowland Brewery supplying us with local ales and a selection of fabulous oils and balsamic vinegar. In the coming weeks, we will be offering some further accompaniments, fresh breads with oils and vinegar, olives and a cheese board with chutneys, and possibly even some local dairy Ice Creams.
The venue brims with character, showcasing the wines in rustic fashion and awash with vintage lighting amongst the antique furniture, creating an atmosphere that blends naturally with its surroundings within Stydd Gardens.
Our wedding marquee is erected and surrounded by the wild flower meadow leading to the entrance and a luscious fresh lawn sprawls the front aspect.
The grounds are coming to life now, the roses and passionflower are blooming. Our resident collection of beautiful white doves have multiplied from 5 to 11 and the cooing of tiny beaks emanate from the dovecote again too!
We still have a way to go to be totally complete, although progress should now be an evolution rather than a ways to completion, so come and have a look in, enjoy the summer whilst it is with us; it appears as though we are going to be blessed with clear and warm skies this month; indulge yourself in the fabulous gardens with a glass of your favourite wine.
We are open daily from around 11am until 6.30pm Monday to Thursday, and later (around 8pm) through the weekend
