Marmalade Awards

“Dalemain is a house that needs to be full of people. This is as true today as it always has been and as much as it is a home to my wife, myself and our children, it is a living, working entity that is of much wider importance and interest to the many people whose lives come into contact with it in one way or another.  We love it as our home, a very special house with an extraordinarily warm and welcoming atmosphere, and it is our pleasure to share it with the many visitors and friends who chance upon it. We are home to ‘The World’s Original Marmalade Awards & Festival’ held annually in March at Dalemain and this year we celebrate our 14th Anniversary and we are pleased to announce record entries and even more money raised for Charity.”

Robert and Jane Hasell-McCosh
