There's a Fibre Frenzy running in my village hall on the weekend of June 8/9/10. Hosted by me, and with teaching by me and Sally-in-Wales, amongst others. There's a thread about it here: http://forum.downsizer.net/about68982.html

It is also a wonderful location to run foraging weekends from.
She has a huge barn(with it's own kitchen), A sleeping barn, other random and more secluded accommodation, a camping field. There is a separate building that is warm and comfy for smaller groups.

She provides the most sensational cakes, B&B and is all round lovely.
