  • 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.

  • Locanda della Valle Nuova

    Email:

    In sight of Urbino (Unesco heritage in northern Le Marche – Italy) in a big organic farm we offer accommodation in 3 self-catering apartments (2 to 5 people). Always keeping in mind the philosophy that ‘one should tread lightly on the earth’ we grow organically wheat, fruits and vegetables and raise our cattle, pigs and poultry with 100 per cent natural feed; from our fresh organic produce and greens, berries and flowers foraged in our farm we make our own bread and pasta, jams, wine, preserves and traditional home cooking. In Autumn we also have truffles from our woods. The home is fitted with solar collectors and the heating system is run using renewable energy. Perfect for touring many Central Italy Renaissance and Medieval towns, horse riding or simply relax by the swimming pool enjoying the sweeping view of the landscape. Good English spoken.
