Starling murmurations, classic cars, pig racing, yoga, cricket supper, politics, it’s at Helen Browning’s Royal Oak in 2019


We have a whole range of activities to keep you busy when you visit us at Eastbrook Farm: in fact we’ve got so many we’ve set up a whole new site, Eastbrook Experiences, where you can see what we’re up to and reserve your place on our fun and informative courses.

Check out our new website
