We love this place and the surrounding area which balances on the border of three counties- Somerset, Devon and Dorset.

Paul grew up on the farm and Philiy moved down from London in 2009. We love to champion our local artisans, makers and independent businesses, and there are many local areas that have become firm favourites. We are excited to be sharing them with you.


We encourage day trips or afternoon jaunts.

Some of our favourites are inland or by the coast. Below you will find a selection of places, makers and more, and Philiy has written mini-itineraries of the things she loves to do when she visits them.

If you find any gems we haven’t mentioned, please let us know and we can share them with future guests.

Our mini itineraries

The site (location)

Follow the meandering Lidden Hill road until the unmistakable peak of Castle Hill. Enter Fordscroft Farm and the private drive welcomes you into 260 acres of peaceful, organic farmland.

Nestled at the foot of this medieval castle site, Hinton Hideaways offers you a place where you can be yourself and shed the stresses of life. Choose from a collection of properties all styled with hand crafted products and a natural aesthetic.

The views are of nothing more than open fields and trees, where nature displays a kaleidoscope of colours during the changing seasons.

No longer a dairy farm you’ll find a slower pace with fields of grass, wheat and peas mingling with our award winning suckler herd of cattle.

This biodiverse land offers you the chance to reconnect to the natural world. Feel it underfoot and between fingers. A place to enjoy natures gentler rhythm.
