‘THE WALLED GARDEN VINEYARD’ AT CARLTON TOWERS
An exciting new venture for the old walled kitchen garden.
Set in the grounds and overlooked by the magnificent stature of the house, ‘The Walled Garden’ is Carlton Towers’ very own vineyard, born from Lord and Lady Gerald’s passion for wine and dedicated to Lord Gerald’s father Miles, 17th Duke of Norfolk.
Reminiscent of the classic English novel “The Secret Garden”, step through the powder-blue gate into the beautiful enclosure teeming with vines, growing two cool climate grape varieties; Auxerrois Colmar and Pinot Noir, which we plan to blend together to make a sparkling white wine. The vines were tenderly planted by Lord Gerald, Lady Emma.
In 2019 we opened the gate to our wonderful labour of love. Overlooked by the Stables Tearoom, Quintessentially English, serving refreshments, cream teas and sweet and savoury treats.
Available to hire privately – the perfect place for intimate dining experience, baby showers, buisness meetings, wedding breakfasts and craft/workshops.
Loyalty Cards Available
Stables Tearoom Open 10am-3pm
Friday through to Monday All Year Round
***Please note that the Tea Room will be opening throughout December 10am-4pm***

Each of our new cottages have been individually designed and furnished by Lady Gerald Fitzalan Howard to offer a tranquil haven from the bustle of the everyday life. These are a wonderful addition to your vineyard tour and tasting afternoon. Combine it with a tour of the house and a chilled bottle of sparkling wine in your room and you have the perfect couples escape or girl’s night away.
