Guests enjoy picking their own vegetaqbles while they stay at Crystal Creek Meadows

Crystal Creek Meadows now has a vegetable and fruit garden which offers you delicious tasty treats you can enjoy in your cottage. We’ve planted lettuces, beetroot, tomatoes, cucumbers and fennel and plenty of strawberries. Our little crops are placed around the original property’s orchard with the old apple, orange and cumquat trees and the new apricot and plum trees were added recently, so there’s plenty to pick throughout the year. It’s great fun for the kids to see where their food really comes from and adults love to chose a tasty treat for their dinner or to take home.
