Fairhaven Garden – Great Broadland Breakfast – English Tourism Week

Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden at South Walsham in the Norfolk Broads is marking English Tourism Week from Saturday, March 25 to Sunday, April 2, 2017 with the Great Broadland Breakfast, celebrating a cooked start to the day with the best of local produce.

Breakfast is served in the tearoom from 9.15am until 12noon, giving visitors the chance to enjoy their meal before exploring the garden, which opens at 10am.

Norfolk and Suffolk businesses supplying breakfast produce are New Oven Bakery, Great Yarmouth, bread and croissants; Green Farm Coffee Rackheath, tea and coffee and Broadland Hams, bacon. Eggs come form Hoxne in Suffolk and mushrooms from Capel St Mary (also Suffolk). Fairhaven supplies it own tomatoes, in season, from the garden’s vegetable patch.

Louise Rout, Manager, Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden said: “The garden has always been managed sustainably using organic principles and traditional Broads practices. Our green ethos also features strongly in what we offer for visitors and we always use local suppliers whenever possible. Our local breakfast is proving popular and we look forward to welcoming visitors during English Tourism Week to celebrate our Great Broadland Breakfast.”
