Hagley Bridge Farm, Somerset

Best for: Foodies

Attention cheese-lovers, this holiday could just be your dream come true. Hagley Bridge Farm is a working dairy where you can spend the entire weekend devoting yourself to the making and eating of all sorts of mouthwatering cheeses.

Over two days you’ll learn how to make Mediterranean, British, soft and creamy or hard and bitey varieties, which you can stuff down on the spot or bring home to admiring flatmates. Hagley Bridge also runs cheese-making courses which also involve making your own bread and chutneys to go with your handiwork. From £210pp.


The Toft Alpaca farm, Warwickshire 

Best for: Animal lovers

Are you on good terms with your landlord? Good enough to move in your brand new pet alpaca? If you have a hankering to hang out with these four-legged fluffballs, head to the Toft Alpaca Farm in Warwickshire, where you can stay in the on-site cottage and learn everything there is to know about looking after them.

The farm runs regular hands-on workshops or you can stay on one of their pet days, where you get to test drive the furry creatures on walks and take them on an obstacle course. They’re all for sale, so if there’s one that particularly takes your fancy – better start clearing the junk out of your yard. From £40pp. 


Cold Harbour Cottage, Kent

Best for: Country folk

The award-winning Cold Harbour Cottage offers a stay in a 1760s building, aimed at recreating the old-fashioned lifestyle that an 18th-century farming family would have had. Owners deliver country tours that include hikes through the fields, old farming method demos and – should you ever need them – shepherd’s survival techniques for living on the windswept marshlands. From £400pw (sleeps four).
