Ditchley Cider Works & Farm

Ditchley is a historic Lee family site on 162 acres located on Dividing Creek with views of the Chesapeake Bay. Along with the renovated 1752 Manor House is the Cider House and tasting room with accommodations for up to 16 for a weekend vacation stay, wedding parties or elopement. Space is available in the Manor House for a buffet, cocktail reception, reunion, intimate inside seated dinner or an outside larger event/wedding.

From our private beach, you can launch a kayak or paddleboard or come ashore on our dock from your boat. You can sign up to be a farm hand for a day, assist with our archeological dig or pedal your way around the back roads of the Northern Neck. Farm to Table Dinners can be arranged using our beef and pork products (all sulfate, sulfite and MSG free) and locally-sourced fresh veggies. We have two commercial kitchens, so catering is available for both small and large groups.

If you are looking for a more relaxed stay, there are plenty of opportunities for visits to other historic sites, shopping and dining at nearby locations.
