Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Huntstile Organic Farm, Coathurst, nr Bridgwater, SomersetHuntstile is foodie heaven. Owners Lizzie and John radiate a passion for good food and the whole place lives and breathes it.The farm covers over 650 acres of organic land nursing vegetables, soft fruit, wheat, oats, and barley, as well as medicinal crops for companies like Neal'sYard Remedies. Beef is produced from the herd of British white cattle, and there are chickens galore, for eggs aplenty.

This isn't a dedicated campsite but a farm-cum-B&B-cafe/ restaurant-self-catering-sort-of-a-place — and it's amazing...You can even get married here.There are technically five pitches, but you're more or less welcome to hunker down anywhere. So let your tent snuggle up to an old red-brick wall, the gypsy caravan, or even the pig pen.

You're in Quantock country, so circled by stunning rural Somerset and all its outdoor activities; and onsite walks seek out the ancient woodland or stone circle. It's hard to believe you're near the M5; all you can hear around here is wildlife. And it's lovely to stroll across the farmyard to the cafe for a cream tea or Full English, happy in the knowledge it's all fair trade with not a GM ingredient in sight.
