A joint visit to Jekka's Herb Farm and Berkeley Castle

Brand new for 2020

We are so pleased to be offering this tailor made day out for your group to enjoy at our two impressive Gloucestershire Venues. Roughly 15 minutes by car/coach away from each other, our proposed itinerary offers you an idea of how your day could look at each venue.

We can be very flexible with timings and arrangements and we are happy for you to tell us how you would like your day to run if you don’t like our proposed schedule.

Jekka’s is a family run herb farm on the outskirts of Bristol with over 30 years’ experience in growing and using medicinal and culinary herb plants and seeds. At Jekka’s they believe in cultivating flavour and aim to educate and inspire gardeners and cooks of all ages.

Their herb experiences are based around Jekka's Herbetum, a living encyclopedia of over 400 culinary herbs which are displayed in raised beds at their award-winning herb farm.

Tours of the Castle by Charles Berkeley, for a group of up to 25 people (maximum), can be arranged at an additional cost for the group, subject to Mr Berkeley’s availability.

We encourage Groups to pre-book the Garden Room, adjoining the Yurt. Please download our menu, tailored specifically for Groups.
