Cowdray Summer Newsletter 2019
The summer newsletter is available to pick up from across the Estate.
Landscape and habitat management are the focus of the lead article. Responsible stewardship and sustainability are key principles embedded into the Estate’s culture which have guided the management of our countryside for generations. Butterfly habitat improvement, soil health and healthland management are all highlighted.
Summer fun at Cowdray Park Polo Club is also a focus as the season is now in full swing. Visitors from far and wide flock to Cowdray’s world famous lawns to enjoy high-octane polo games, a fun and vibrant atmosphere off the pitch and relaxed dining facilities provided by the newly-launched Cowdray catering business.
Cowdray apariasts, David Reilly, Dean Atkins and John Fisher source Cowdray Honey from hives located across the 16,500 Estate and also feature in the newsletter. Cowdray Farm Shop has just received it’s first delivery of 2019 honey.
Midhurst has a long history of watch and clockmaking and today J E Allnutt & Son in West Street carries on the tradition in the town. Read the fascinating story of owner Geoff, whose family came to Midhurst in the early 80’s, who business operates from a Cowdray property. Tatler recently listed J E Allnutt & Son in its Little Green Book, South East, as one of the places you need to know in the countryside. Tatler describe Geoff to be a magician with watches and clocks.
On the final page there are short stories on Cowdray’s Shooting School, Hownhall, recently awarded a silver award in the ‘Shooting Ground’ category which is a terrific achievement for the team who established the school in 2017, Susana & Daughters Cowdray Estate Kefir, made with Cowdray milk and available to buy in the Farm Shop and the Cowdray Farm Shop‘s recent 10th anniversary refurbished.
