Organic Cuisine

Resident head chef Mark Mabon is as passionate about foraging and sourcing local, ethical and sustainable ingredients as he is about whipping them up into tasty and innovative dishes. While vegetables and plants are seen as the centre of the plate and most of the retreats follow a vegetarian menu, the food at 42 Acres takes an all-inclusive approach. The property prides itself on supporting small-scale artisan growers and organic produce, with a passionate focus on wholesome, honest and delicious food. Raw cheese, fresh sourdough, the chef’s own sauerkraut and digestion-boosting kimchi feature alongside other health-giving dishes such as beetroot and sprouted sunflower-seed pâté, polenta toasts and raw chocolate mousse. A warm glass of comforting turmeric milk is the perfect way to round off the day before bed.

Please note that the venue is alcohol free and we wish you to respect that, and you will be amazed on how you will feel charged by giving a break on certain habits such as the usual glass of wine.

Somerset

If you do want to go further afield then Frome – a pretty nearby town that’s steeped in history and quintessentially English – head to Nunney Castle (english-heritage.co.uk) and then onto Sam’s Kitchen Deli (samskitchendeli.co.uk) for mouth-watering wood-fired pizza or the River House (riverhousefrome.co.uk) for hearty riverside fare. You’ll also find the exceptional Talbot Inn (talbotinn.com) nearby in Mells, which offers a stylish take on the British pub experience. And if art is your passion, put the Hauser & Wirth gallery (hauserwirthsomerset.com) in Bruton on your list, with a lunchtime stop at the beautiful, light-filled At The Chapel (atthechapel.co.uk) for delicious, seasonal food.
