    Georgina Campbell 'Country House of the Year 2020' for Ballyvolane House

    Ballyvolane House (the home of Bertha’s Revenge Gin) is the Georgina Campbell ‘Country House of the Year 2020’. We are chuffed to bits with this award and it recognises the hard work and dedication of our fantastic team working here with us. Thank you Georgina, we have been celebrating!

    Citation from Georgina Campbell:

    “Justin and Jenny Green are the current custodians of this gracious 1728 mansion. Surrounded by its own farmland and magnificent wooded grounds, it has wonderful gardens (domain of Justin’s father, Jeremy), a trout lake and salmon beats on the River Blackwater, it’s also known for contemporary charms - glamping (bell tents or the pig ark!), an atmospheric wedding venue and even their own gin, the famed Bertha’s Revenge. Justin and Jenny are an extremely hospitable couple, committed to continuing the standards of hospitality, comfort and food and drink for which this lovely and fun-filled house is renowned - and recent guests Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall obviously enjoyed it, as you can see from their framed letter of thanks in the drawing room.”
