The conference side
Having spent years away from home on business staying in anonymous, characterless hotels we were determined to create a place where people away on business feel at home. A two year search ended at Paddocks. Ten days from stepping foot on the land we exchanged contracts and our adventure began.
Paddocks is offered as a venue option to our UK and European commercial clients www.lindsaymckennalimited.com as well as to businesses seeking a venue only package.
The farming side
Our philosophy is getting back to the basic principles about the care and management of our livestock, the land and its resources.
We are already self sufficient in a range of rare breed meats, eggs, juice, fruit and jams and have ambitious plans to expand our range of food direct from the farm to the plate.
Guests can also take a piece of paddocks away with them as a memento, whether it is rare breed meats, reindeer antlers (they produce new antlers every year) fresh free range duck, chicken and goose eggs and whole or blown emu eggs.
Guests are welcome to get involved in farming activities; many join me on the morning and evening food rounds or get stuck into land and animal management tasks.
