November at The Whittern Estate
We cannot believe that Christmas is just around the corner and that we will soon be saying goodbye to such a glorious autumn! The countryside has been an amazing riot of colours with the good weather we have enjoyed in spades, here in Herefordshire.
Life on the estate now gets ready for winter, and we look forward to much revelry as people join us in the holiday cottages for the Christmas period. There is so much to do locally as long as you are prepared for the weather, as they say there is never bad weather, just bad clothes!

Jo Hilditch took to The Den
Last Sunday, our Founder, Jo Hilditch took to the Den to find out if she could find the right investor and partner amongst the well-known Dragons in her quest to expand British Cassis.
Pitching for £50k in return for 10% of the British Cassis business, Jo’s cocktails went down a storm and she had soon won the approval of Deborah Meaden, Sarah Wilkinson and Peter Jones. And whilst he didn’t make a formal offer, it was clear that Nick Jenkins took a liking to the products too, as he drank both his own Raspberry Daquiri and Touker Suleyman’s too.
If you’re passionate about good food, then you have come to the right place. Herefordshire and the surrounding areas are home to an abundance of great local restaurants and pubs.
