Giffords Hall Vineyard Tours
Giffords Hall Vineyard is a beautiful place to visit in the heart of the Upper Stour valley. Hartest is one of Suffolk’s prettiest villages, with a hump backed bridge, thatched and painted houses and a large green. It has a smashing pub, The Crown, and we are surrounded by picturesque places of interest such as Long Melford , Lavenham and Bury St Edmunds, a Historic cathedral town boasting many splendid places to eat.
We offer three different types of tour to choose from – the private tour for min 8-10 people,(see below), or a tour voucher for two people, which can be purchased from the online vineyard shop and makes a lovely gift, or we run a ‘grand tour’ on a specific date once a month during the summer with tickets at £5pp.
