Share the Love at Leckford Estate this February

01 Feb 2023

Having officially passed the shortest day of the year, we can begin to enjoy the lighter mornings and evenings which lead us into a flurry of seasonal events. In the next couple of months, there is Valentine’s Day, Easter, Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday and, of course, those with children will be able to enjoy Half Term.

You will be able to cater for the full range of events at Leckford’s Longstock Park Farm Shop. Here are some of our top picks to enjoy this season:

Valentine’s Day

We all love a quintessential afternoon tea, and here at The Leckford Estate, we’re proud to offer a premium experience with a view.

Whether you want to show yourself some self-love with a scrumptious treat or bring a friend or loved one, we’re happy to invite you into our Longstock Park Café here at The Leckford Estate. Enjoy a selection of delicious homemade scones accompanied by a range of jams and creams, and it wouldn’t be complete without a warming cup of tea.

If you’re looking for a gorgeous gift, we stock a wide range of lovingly produced food from local producers, including many English wines and delicious chocolates. We also hold beautiful bouquets from British flower growers, Featherstone Flowers.

Shrove Tuesday

Get ready to create some heavenly delights this pancake day, and pick up some of the best locally sourced ingredients, including our own Leckford flour. If you’re not sure where to start, follow some inspiration here.

Half Term

Bring the family to the Leckford Estate during half term and experience the great outdoors in and around Longstock. We’re lucky to be situated in a gorgeous part of Hampshire with stunning walks and views. Explore the local villages and then head indoors, or outdoors if the weather is fine, and try something from our Leckford Estate Cafe menu. With cosy seating areas indoors and chairs with a view in our outdoor dining space, you can sit back, relax, and soak up the gorgeous surroundings of Longstock Park.

Get Planting

Now is the time to start getting ready for the season ahead. Pick up some seed potatoes, vegetable seeds and gardening equipment and enjoy growing your own food and enjoying your garden space this year.

Our Longstock Nursery Partners are experts and keen gardeners themselves so please ask our team for some tips on successful homegrown produce.
