Halfpenny Green Wine Estate

(Staffordshire Shopping)

         
Bobbington Staffordshire England
Description : 

It was the vision of farmer Martin Vickers 30 years ago to plant a vineyard that would one day match continental sites.


Today, 30 acres of vines are managed by Martin and produce award-winning wines crafted by his son Clive. A family business, the acclaimed shop, restaurant, deli and tea room are run by Clive's wife Lisa, and offer a great day out for visitors.

"It was my vision to create a vineyard on a par with continental sites. I am really proud of the quality of vines we grow today." Martin Vickers, founder and Vineyard Manager.

The first ½ acre was planted in 1983 by Martin who still runs the vineyard today with his family. By 1991 a further 22 acres were added and today the vineyard totals almost 30 acres, making it one of the largest in the UK. Halfpenny Green Wine Estate is situated 250ft above sea level in well-sheltered south facing slopes, with light, sandy free-draining soil.

Chillington Hall

(Staffordshire Historic Buildings)

         
Wolverhampton Shropshire England
Description : 

 Chillington Hall is a hidden gem on the Staffordshire/Shropshire borders between the villages of Brewood and Codsall. 


 The enchanting 18th century Georgian house, is a product of two differing Georgian styles. The South side built in 1724 by Francis Smith of Warwick, has rooms of an intimate size contrasted with those built on a far grander scale by Sir John Soane some sixty years later. The Saloon, typical of Soane design, features a soaring ceiling topped by a great lantern with beautiful plasterwork incorporating the family coat of arms and motto.

The parkland, landscaped by Capability Brown, incorporates the magnificent lake and its architectural follies. It is accessed from a drive which runs alongside a manmade canal designed to give the impression of walking along a river bank.

A short walk from the Hall, through the arboretum, you will find the Chillington Model Farm. Its octagonal dovecote forms the centrepiece of an 18th century service courtyard including stables, barns, pig sties and acorn roasting house.
Chillington Hall offers guided tours of this magnificent house and our knowledgeable guides will give you an in-depth history of this family home, its ancestors and contents.
For 2018 more public events are being introduced at Chillington, building on the success of the 2017 events. New events will include: The country house experience days and a Stately Home Car Boot Fair. An extra date has been added to the hugely popular guided Bluebell Walk and a return of the Plant Fair & Open Garden Day after the successful first event last year.

The Hall is also available for private group tours and has been also been used for birthday celebrations, charity events and classical music concerts. Although Chillington Hall is a grand house it retains an intimate charm which makes it an ideal setting for entertaining.
