Lady [Harriet] Hamilton, Lady Hamilton of Dalzell, Apley Estate, Apley Farm Shop, Apley Walled Garden, Shropshire UK

More correctly I’m either Mrs Harriet Hamilton, The Hon Mrs Gavin Hamilton or Lady Hamilton of Dalzell, but NOT Lady Harriet Hamilton ! But as my super mother in law is Corinna, Lady Hamilton of Dalzell, to distinguish us, I am increasingly referred to (understandably !) as Lady Harriet or Lady Harriet Hamilton. This happens every day, whenever we’re required to provide title, first & last name, eg on websites. Also, ‘’ was already taken !

I’m married to Gavin Hamilton, Lord Hamilton of Dalzell, with whom we have 4 children currently aged 7, 11, 16 & 16. He owns the Apley Estate in Shropshire (UK) on which we run Apley Farm Shop which includes the Pigg’s Playbarn, The Creamery Café Restaurant, Corn Loft Conference Room & Skylark Nature Trail. There are 5 tenants in the shopping courtyard: The Apley Plant Centre, Scotty’s Animal Park, Paint & Create, Big Little Things & Annie’s Reiki Centre. In Spring 2013, we began bringing back into production Apley Walled Garden which supplies Apley Farm Shop, which opened on 31 March 2011. Having split our time between Paris & Shropshire, then London, we now go to & fro Oxford. When working on the marketing, press, advertising & events for the above, I adore being with our children – usually with their ponies too.

    I was wondering if you still have rooms where myself and my fiancee can stay. I have just been watching a programme that featured you’re amazing home.

    Thanks Steven

    Dear Lady Hamilton,

    I was reading about your rediscovery of the diary of AW Foster, who served in the Blues in WW1.

    By any chance is this something which you may be posting on your site?

    I am very interested to learn more about him as I have a monocular which once belonged to him & was amazed to find that this diary existed!

    Many thanks!

    Best regards, Brookes

    Hello from Canada……I believe Hoards Park is still a part of the Apley Estate? My gr.grandfather John Holland Wase was born and raised in the manor at Hoards Park. I would love to have any information regarding their possession of Hoards Park whether by ownership or rental. If you could help me I would be forever grateful.
