Lodding Farm, ME17
Lodding Farm is set on the side of a gentle hill, with fantastic views down through its fields, woodland, orchards and over the reservoir down to the valley below.
Fruit, flowers and vegetables are grown here, with the most productive season being late Spring and Summer when the large flower plot come into full bloom, and the orchards are bursting with apples, plums, pears and cherries.

The changing seasons bring changing colours, from the early bulbs of Spring , stepping then into the cottage garden summer garden, and beyond into rose hips (NB: there are rows and rows of them).
