Meet the multi-taskers

At the wheel: Fiona driving her tractor

If you visit us at Wordsworth House and Garden, we very much hope you’ll pop into our lovely café and fabulous shop. You’ll certainly meet some interesting people.

As well as making some of our delicious scones, serving teas and coffees, and helping out with occasional duty managing, bubbly Fiona Tyson lives and works on her very own farm. You can see her above at the wheel of her tractor.

Fiona is an accomplished Herdwick sheep breeder and is immortalised on the far right of the painting below with her father.

Fiona’s café colleague Katie Twelvetree is our youngest team member at just 19. Katie is also a world-class scone maker – her baking was described by a recent visitor as the best she’d ever eaten. In addition, tireless Katie helps House Steward Rachel with conservation cleaning and, in her spare time, likes to run.

Katie, pictured right, recently completed her first ever 10k race, at the nearby village of Lorton, along with my typing assistant Alex. They crossed the line together in driving rain in a very creditable 1hr 4mins and 8secs.

In the shop, you may come across lovely Jen Maguire, a former mental health nurse, or Richard Horrocks, who also multi-tasks as a duty manager. He’s pictured below with senior retail consultant Sian, another of our DMs.

In his free time, Richard marries people! He was the registrar last August for the first-ever Wordsworth House wedding, when Alex’s beautiful step-daughter Natalie got married – to find out more have a look at Wedding bells ring out at Wordsworth House (August 30, 2012).

If you fancy getting married here – and there is no better place – have a look at our brochure!
