    Mazzard Farm Holiday Cottages

    Email:

    Seven miles from sleepy Sidmouth, at the foot of East Hill, are 17 acres of old apple farm. Among tipis, hens, farmhouse, gardens, play areas and a big communal courtyard with picnic tables are six cottages, which sleep between 2 and 10 (24 in total). Pure heaven for all the family. It’s pampering too, thanks to owner Jacqueline’s treatments: Indian head massages, Japanese facials and reflexology. Quarenden Cottage, the former apple store, is the largest in the row, beautifully cared for inside and out. You get sweeping oak floors and a huge leather sofa, fashionable florals and a wood-burning stove, atmospheric lighting and courtyard views. Bathrooms have fabulous fittings and delicious local soaps, the open-plan kitchen is a cook’s delight and the bedrooms fit under the eaves. The owners – keen greenies, foodies too – live in the farmhouse and Jacqueline makes marmalade, lemon curd, apple juice and fruit crumbles in season; there’s also meat from the farm next door. Choose from their great list of attractions: the Donkey Sanctuary, Crealy Adventure Park, the Jurassic Coast Hopper, or sign up to an onsite cookery or photography course.

    Stepney City Farm

    Email:

    We are a working farm in Tower Hamlets; one of the most deprived and densely-populated boroughs in England. We use sustainable agricultural practice to produce safe and healthy food and other products. We operate particularly for those who by virtue of youth, age, disability, financial hardship or social circumstance can especially benefit. We aim to strengthen our community by addressing existing social divisions. We develop the potential and skills of our community through education. This diverse programme covers agriculture, healthy eating, rural arts and crafts as well as the protection of the environment by encouraging reduction, reuse and recycling.
