Set in the southernmost foothills of Somerset’s Quantock Hills area of outstanding natural beauty, Cobbs Cross Farm (Home of SecretValley) has been farmed by John Hardwick since 1973 and is now a family business with wife Jan and children Rob, Emma and Will. The farm has evolved greatly since then, turning organic in 2000 rearing Free Range Chickens as well as a Beef Suckler Herd, who can be seen enjoying their freedom in the lush green fields. In recent years the farm has gained some slightly more exotic residents, visitors can see the incredibly cute Miniature Donkeys and cheeky Alpacas roaming around their fields.

Sarah Willmott is the proud owner of Mill Farm Shepherds Hut close by the coast at Skipsea. She tells us here what inspired her to own one! To stay here click the named link to find out and more and Check Price.

Here are a few of our favourites to tempt you....(click image for more info)

wildlotusWhen I met Paul and Vennetta at the Glamping Show exhibition last year, one glimpse of their business card was enough for me to declare - I will see you there! My sister was equally won over and after a brief convincing of lovely husbands to stay home with the kids, we were ready to book....a stay right on one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Antigua. One of 365 on the island in fact! 

Wild Lotus Glamping is the only under canvas glamping on Antigua, and there are only a few other similar options in the Caribbean. One big advantage of choosing Antigua is that the people are very friendly - it is considered to be safe - and they work hard to give a tourist a good experience. This added to the other attractions - the hot yet comfortable climate in February and turquoise ocean next to pale sand literally on our doorstep.
