Life in Colour

A bonus Suffolk Pink

In true Suffolk countryside you will find Wyken Hall Gardens and Vineyard, home to Kenneth and Carla Carlisle. The 400 year old Suffolk barn houses the Leaping Hare country store, which sells some very beautiful wares along with their award winning wine, a café  and the Leaping Hare Vineyard restaurant.

The house itself has a copper red lime wash which is what ‘Suffolk Pink’ was in Elizabethan times. The southern veranda has five lovely blue rocking chairs brought over from Mississippi and is shaded by columns of Spartan apples, espaliered high so they do not block the view from the house.

Can you find any pink buildings?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. It truly is. Nice garden too and a shop and restaurant on site, though the shop is a little expensive for my tastes.

  1. They certainly have a lot of pink houses in Suffolk.
    But ‘English’ and ‘Wine’ are two words that were never intended to go toghether! 🙂 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Ah, but the white wines are actually quite nice. And some excellent English sparkling wines. The cooler temperature suits the whites.
