Our family have lived and farmed at Great Lodge for generations. They were tenant farmers here at the end of the nineteenth century and in the late 1940s Rebecca’s grandfather Joseph Smith bought the estate. Her father Alan moved here in the 1980s and as well as running the arable farm he planted the vineyard. Rebecca and her family followed in 2011 and established the wedding business and accommodation. One of her children Elizabeth manages our social media and helps with events and weddings when she is home from university.
