Under the supervision of head gardener David Lewis, the dedicated team tend the grounds as if they were their own.
In the mid-19th century, owner of the time, the Reverend W Bateman, re-landscaped the grounds and created more or less what we see today, the attractive lake, the beautiful specimen trees, the romantic walks and the kitchen garden itself. His wonderful creation is a project in progress with developments and new ideas ongoing.
The historic kitchen garden once again provides an abundance of seasonal fruits and vegetables, whilst the 24 bee hives produce all the hotel’s honey requirements throughout the year.
Whether it’s a stroll through the woods, a visit to the kitchen garden or simply a snooze by the pool, the beautiful Longueville gardens has something for everyone!
Longueville Manor’s “New Leaf” programme is dedicated to protecting the delicate resources and environment that surrounds it and is committed to activities which develop sustainable practices in five key areas:
- The Environment
- Water saving
- Energy saving
Working closely with suppliers, the local community as a whole and numerous business partners, quantum steps are being made towards achieving a more sustainable future.
