Set in 60 acres of beautiful Devon countryside is River Cottage HQ. A seventeenth century farmhouse where the acclaimed chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall films his TV shows and also runs cookery masterclasses, apprenticeships and bespoke dining experiences.

For one weekend of the year the farm transforms to a lovely family friendly festival. With music, cookery classes, and family fun to enjoy.


We have our own crew campsite, equipped with:

  • Free boiling water, plus tea and coffee supplies.
  • Free phone charging facilities to keep you connected.
  • Access to crew loos & hot showers.
  • A meal token per shift.
