Dronfield Hall Barn - Re-Open To The Public!

We're back open at last! After 156 days since we were forced to close at the beginning of November, it has been great to welcome customers - both new and old - back to the Barn. Thank you to everyone who has visited us so far, and we hope that you will continue to help us share the word with your friends and family. 

Thankfully, the weather has been kind to us so far this week - it has been lovely to enjoy the sunshine in the courtyard, and see the gardens starting to look their best for the spring.
