The farmhouse is on the edge of Wimborne St Giles, overlooking watercress beds. It’s a relaxed family home combined with cookery school where Lisa enthusiastically shares her cooking knowledge with guests who come from all over the world.
Sleep in bedrooms with garden views, rise for breakfast or brunch. Lisa bakes English muffins daily and changes the menu with the seasons – there’s always fruit from the orchard and homemade Bircher muesli, then heaps of choice from pancakes and kedgeree to salmon fishcakes and slow-cooked gammon.
In the evening, order a charcuterie platter or drive to The Drovers pub in the next village, Gussage All Saints (about three miles). Return to a generous sitting room just for guests where the fire burns in winter; settle in with a book or board game… replete and happy.
