Welcome to the multi award winning
Deepdale Farm on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast.
Deepdale Farm has been a family farm for four generations. Each
generation has developed the farm further, taking on new land and expanding the
business interests. Alister Borthwick and his son Jason Borthwick now run
the farm, with Alister doing the day to day farming and management. Jason
is part-time involved mainly in the marketing and diversification.
The Tourism side of the business is now leased to Deepdale
Leisure Ltd, run by Louise Smith and Andrea Bramhall. We share this
website and hopefully you will find all you want to know about Deepdale and the
facilities and services we provide.
Deepdale is still a working arable farm, but with the ever fluctuating state of farming we want
to increase the income from non farming activities. As you can see we've
diversified to a large extent and there are many more ideas in the pipeline.
We try to take the
environment into account with all our diversification and day to day running
of the business.
In 2006 we fully opened
Dalegate Market, replaced the run down
petrol station and tiny shop. Dalegate Market now offer excellent facilities and
services for both locals and visitors, including a larger cafe, convenience
store and other shops.
We must say a large thank you to both DEFRA and
EEDA who have been very supportive with our tourism development projects. They
have supplied money from the Rural Development Scheme and the Redundant Farm
Buildings Scheme for
Deepdale Backpackers. The improvements
to Deepdale Camping and
Deepdale Granary would not have been
possible without their support.
Both Alister and Jason are very active in
promoting diversification and are active members of both the farming and tourism
Jason is heavily involved in tourism, being on the regional board of the British Hospitality Association. He's now stepped away from the day to day running of Deepdale to help others
develop equally as challenging projects as we've completed at Deepdale.
