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.

Marc lives with his young family in the Blackdown Hills where it's still easy to eat with the seasons, and that's what he likes to do. All ingredients are fresh, sourced locally and often wild or foraged. Once he puts his own twist to it, it moves to another level.

River Field and Forest
If you have a thing for smoked food you’re going to love River Field and Forest. This family run online/delivery business supplies the finest smoked meats and fish, sourced from artisans throughout the British Isles who are passionate about the food they produce; a whole lot of love goes into what they do and quality is always at the forefront.
So make that big birthday extra special by starting the day with a breakfast of smoked salmon and soft scrambled eggs for all. Have a heavenly hen weekend with an afternoon tea of smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches, or a tastebud tantalising smoked fish platter (Beetroot & Gin smoked salmon, cold smoked trout, honey & lime hot smoked salmon…). Celebrate that significant anniversary with a delicious dinner; the most flavoursome Gravadlax or smoked duck breast salad to start, then tuck into venison haunch steaks or a hearty venison casserole. Savour every mouthful, let the flavours linger, it’s exquisite.
Or just pop on your boots and stroll through the fields to the local pub for a pint (or two). Nice anyway, but even better when you know there’s a side of smoked salmon waiting for you in the fridge when you get back, ready sliced, ready for grazing.
Ordering online is easy and as delivery is generally next day it can all be done last minute; no faff, no fuss. Packaging is recyclable or bio-degradable so you’ll be doing your little bit for the planet too.
