We try, where possible, to source all our products in the following priority - local, East Sussex, Sussex, England, UK and international. So for example, we thought long and hard about stocking the superb Caudalie cosmetics range, which is French. However, as all their products are derived from vines and as they are a company with a similar ethos of excellence to ours, we decided to stock them. Takeaway tea and coffee and a selection of sweet treats are available.
We aim to champion local artists and, for example, we asked ceramicist Alison Milner to design a range using the Estate as her inspiration. Look out on her ceramics, tea towels and stationery for the butterflies and plants she discovered, and even the yellow colouring she got from boiling down one of the plants on our land, the kidney vetch. Other artists we have established a relationship with include visual artists Lisa Joffe, Julian Sutherland- Beetson and Adam McNaught-Davis, and photographer Viv Blakey, whose gorgeous landscape photographs are also featured throughout this website. We are always keen to hear from more local artists and designers, so pop in or drop us an
Finally, we’re delighted to be able to showcase a changing selection of Harold Mockford’s paintings. He is one of Sussex’s best artists and it’s an honour to have his work in the Gun Room.
