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.

Highside Farm, Bowbank, Middleton-in-Teesdale, County DurhamSitting atop the North Pennine's, Highside Farm's smallholding has only five pitches, so its miniature size almost guarantees you'll have plenty of peace and quiet. And if that isn't enough to whet your appetite, the extensive views from your tent across the valley to Lunedale andTeesdale surely will.

Talking of appetite, the site's owners, Richard and Stephanie, also run a working farm specialising in raisingTeeswater sheep and Shorthorn cattle. And what the farm sows, you can reap. All the farm-produced meat is available for your campsite stove and dining pleasure. And, when the chickens aren't on strike, there are fresh eggs to be had, too. But if cooking sounds like far too much effort, you can place an order for breakfast the next day — anything from bacon sandwiches to a Full English can be rustled up.

Richard and Stephanie have succeeded in creating a campsite true to what they love about camping. No security barriers, packed-out camping fields, or rules and regulations; just good views, a rural setting, nice walks, and that back-to-nature feeling. With a sprinkling of good local food on top.

COOL FACTOR Miniature rural site with tasty farm treats.

WHO'S IN? Campervans, caravans, dogs - yes. Groups, no.

ON SITE A maximum of 10 allowed on site. The single hot shower and solitary WC sit inside a traditional farm building along with a washing-up sink; an additional loo is on the site. There are 2 hook-ups (£2.50). No campfires, but BBQs okay.
