For a slice of smallholding life without the toil, it doesn’t get much more delightful than a visit to Abbots Court in Dorset

Abbots Court

Owners Jez and Niki Barfoot have turned their country manor house into a beautiful retreat with a restaurant that uses produce either grown, foraged or reared on their land – or which comes from smallscale local producers.

In the spirit of vicarious toil, let the chefs pluck the vibrant salad leaves from the large garden and prepare dinner for the two-AA rosette restaurant while you lounge on a deckchair under the trees.

A contemporary menu showcases the hyperlocal produce in delicate and sophisticated dishes such as Aperol-poached rhubarb with compote, lemon balm crumble and rhubarb spritz soup.

After indulging in three courses, retire to your room (complete with roll top bath, natch) for a luxuriously quiet night’s sleep.

Wake to birdsong and woodland views, before pottering downstairs to a breakfast of greek yogurt drizzled with honey from the Abbots Court bees (who’ll be busy in the garden while you sip your coffee).

To be in with a chance of winning just answer the following question …

How many AA rosettes does the restaurant hold?
