Book Joe Draper for a bespoke dining experience at your Sleeps 12 large group holiday house and you know you're in for something very, very special.

You see, he strongly advocates supporting local communities by sourcing that way, and he likes to work closely with the seasons by using wild and foraged food where he can. Joe's style of food is clean, fresh and rustic, and absolutely remarkable in the way the produce speaks for itself; in a word - divine.
