Coombeshead Farm, Cornwall, UK

Coombeshead Farm in the Cornish countryside is a slice of pastoral paradise. This working farm offers splendid isolation, with a restaurant that showcases farm-to-fork excellence thanks to a three-course menu brimming with local ingredients and seasonal delights. Feast on pork loin from resident Mangalitsa pigs, foraged Cornish herbs and buttered sourdough baked onsite. The cozy main residences, an ivy-clad farmhouse and a converted grain barn, are decked out with recycled blankets and local pottery, while bathrooms boast water-saving showers and ethical toiletries. As part of Cornwall's Farm Net Zero program, Coombeshead is on a mission to hit its sustainability target within five years, championing traditional farming methods that capture carbon in the soil.
