It’s romantic for two or a great retreat for one, with long walks in nature for inspiration. You’re on 1600 acres of mixed farming land and woodlands, along with an organic farm shop selling home grown and reared produce and ready-to-pop-in-the-oven meals if you don’t yearn to cook. A lovely walk along the old railway line will bring you to the farm café, open until 4pm.
Inside feels light and airy thanks to a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, very cosy with the wood-burner and air source heat pump, plenty of books to read and comfy places to hunker down if it’s raining – even fresh, cheery flowers. Doors open straight onto a south west facing terrace for summer suppers cooked on the fire pit grill and long evenings waiting for the stars to come out.
Join bio-diversity walks, learn to weave willow, birdwatch, say hello to friendly pigs – the ethos here is good and wholesome. Or, batten down the hatches and do your own thing.
