We’ve always said that one of the joys of Further Afield is the wonderful hosts who share their places to stay with us. Part of what makes them such special hosts is the insider knowledge they have and which they’re only to happy to share with their guests. Siwan runs the converted farm buildings at the family farm as Nant ….
I think pretty much all of us have at some point or other thought to ourselves that it’s time to upsticks and start a new life somewhere else. Overseas, by the sea, in the countryside, wherever as long as it’s somewhere new. That’s what Cat and Gabriel have done by moving to their beautiful farm in Devon where you get ….
We love our owners and their unique places to stay and two of our most unique and stylish places to stay – Cloud Cabin in Camber Sands and The Old Stout House in Rye – are owned and run by the charming Nicola.

Sun, sea, sand and shanties, a craggy coastline with quaint fishing villages clinging to the cliffs, it’s no surprise Cornwall is one of the UK’s top destinations. And now you can add beer to the list of reasons to make the journey to the far South West. This time Phil Mellows, a specialist writer about pubs and breweries and founder of ….

Thanks to lots of testing and care, and no doubt helped by the climate ….
Cornwall, for many of us, retains an unspoilt and beautiful spirit. Full of open spaces, open skies and breath taking coastline, it’s a place to free your body and mind. This time we’re chatting to Tia who, with her family, runs Botelet near Liskeard. With Manor Cottage, Cowslip Cottage and The Yurt the farm offers the chance to escape and ….
Sometimes a place comes along that is just so beautiful, so relaxed and chilled out, so welcomingly hosted that you’d happily move in forever. Farmhouse of the Palms on The Algarve is one of those places. Described by guests with terms like “an oasis of calm and beauty”, “they make it all appear so effortless. If it were, the experience ….
Part of the fundamentals of inclusivity is the creation and protection of a fair and equal society. Alongside this sense of fairness, many of our Further Afield partners expand that belief to cover a sense of responsibility to protect the physical environment of that inclusive society. Great examples are Ian and Bob, owners of Casal Dei Fichi in Le Marche, ….
Something we look for when we’re choosing a Further Afield place to stay, other than making sure it’s lovely, is to ensure that its hosts are the kind of people we’d be happy to stay with.
