Seeking real countryside/farm experience of England
Hi Everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me.
My wife and I will be visiting England/Scotland/Ireland from the USA, Sept 2nd through 13th.
After flying into London and staying for three nights, we'll be driving through the English countryside on our way to Ludlow and then Edinburgh. Somewhere in between we were hoping to experience a working farm or dairy and learn how the farm operates. We were hoping that we could make our own cheese or help feed the chickens. Also, a farm where they prepare you home cooked meals that you get to share with the family sounds fun and also quite charming.
It would ideally be a bed and breakfast or a room to rent where we can spend a night or two.
Does anyone have any experience with this or can point me in the right direction?
I'm surprised that you havnt found what you were looking for on that site. I had a nosy at my own county ( Cheshire) and saw several where they make specific mention of being able to "help out" on the farm. I doubt whether Cheshire farmers are particularly more welcoming in this respect than others (although it is possible - we Cestrians are well known for our friendliness).
In itself, Cheshire might be suitable as it's the next county north from Ludlow, so on your way to Edinburgh.
