Getting Back to Nature

If growing your own organic vegetables isn’t enough, they why not have a look at the shortbreaks and day events at the wonderful Embercombe Farm.

We have visited with Exeter Steiner School and enjoyed the amazing welcome from all.

The huge range of activities include:

Eat Your View!

understanding more about where your food comes from and why it matters. For
adults, children, groups.

Embercombe Country Fair – Saturday 6th June 2009

Come and experience a truly traditional and inspirational country fair at Embercombe, Higher Ashton on Saturday 6th June 2009 from 10am until 4 pm. It will be crammed packed full of exciting activities for all the family.

You can explore our 20 acres of mature broadleaf woodlands which we have restored and coppiced over the last year allowing the abundant wildlife to flourish. Wander along our informative and beautiful nature trails and follow our moth and butterfly trail which will take you through five natural habitats.

There will be activities for all to get involved, giving you a closer experience of life in and around a woodland. You can make it a hands-on day and have a go at green woodworking and take part in our besom broom-making workshop or learn how to make gate hurdles. We will also be making oak pegs and shingles and offering pole lathing and a wattle-hurdle demonstration.

There will be workshops in traditional crafts such as felt making, basketry, pottery, bread-making and forging allowing you to get a feel for creating your own masterpiece from a natural resource. You can learn how to build bat and bird boxes for different species, including barn owls, and help us erect them in the right places.



Embercombe Summer Camp Aug 2-7

A kaleidoscope of sound, colour, dance, play, learning, food, music, film.
Moments of quiet as dawn strokes our folded land, moments of madness as we
build a raft and try it out, moments of magic as stars invite us to dream.

Welcome to the world as we wish it to be.

Embercombe is a truely amazing place to visit and more info can be found on their website –
