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.

Caves Folly Eco Campsite, Evendine Lane, Colwall, nr Malvern, WorcestershireYou can make your way to Caves Folly Eco Campsite by public transport and be collected, but you're positively encouraged to arrive on foot, bike, or even horseback (stabling can be arranged locally). A no-car policy is the only rule at this most laid-back and welcoming of places to stay.

You can pitch wherever you like in the lusciousness of the organic glade and wild-flower meadow. The time of year shapes what extent of labyrinth the glade will be in. Spring flowers make way for bending branches laden with fruit come autumn.The campsite is adjoined to the owner's organic nursery, so a mass of colour and scent emits from the flowerbeds and greenhouses, while the backdrop is the stunning British Camp - an Iron-Age hill fort atop the most easterly of the Malvern Hills that inspired many a poet, including WH Auden.You will awaken to the sound of wild birds and perhaps a field mouse or two. And when you doze off, it'll be to the sound of your personal campfire's crackling embers. Just don't be tempted to say 'Will my car be all right parked around the corner?'You'U be (very politely) turned away.

Caves Folly Eco Campsite, Evendine Lane, Colwall, nr Malvern, Worcestershire


COOL FACTOR An eco-site surrounded by flowers and with the Malverns for a backdrop.

WHO'S IN? Tents, dogs, groups - yes. Any motors - no.

ON SITE Campfires allowed anywhere on site. Pitch wherever you want among the 2 acres - in the open field or shady glade in the orchard. Currently campers use the loo and shower attached to owner Wil's house, and the adjoining log cabin when it's empty, but new facilities are planned. Wil is very helpful and happy to freeze ice blocks and other bits.

OFF SITE The Malvern Hills offer no shortage of outdoor walks and bike trails (see www.malverntrail.co.uk). Take a bottle with you to fill with the famous water from one of the many shrine-like springs dotted around the hills - the village of Malvern Wells is a particularly good spot for them. The Malvern Theatres (01684 892277) is an arts centre featuring the latest cinema releases and contemporary plays.

FOOD AND DRINK The onsite shop has lots of in-season organic goodies. The Wellington Inn (01684 540269) serves yummy food within strolling distance. The gorgeous market town of Ledbury, 3 miles away, has some great food shops.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT Train/bus to Colwall and 5-min walk.

OPEN April-October.

THE DAMAGE From £6 per person, per night.
