EAT, DRINK, RELAX

Open all year round, our much-loved tipi café welcomes you to pause for a picturesque pitstop. We champion living ‘off the land’ and invite visitors to eat local and with the seasons. Come on in, we have a large café space where there’s always room.

As well as our free-range pork from our own pig farm, we’ve nurtured a glorious kitchen garden which guides our cooking and delights your palate. Our small farm shop is stocked with supplies we enjoy – most made from makers you can see from our view!

OUR GARDENS

We welcome you all to wander around our lavender fields and discover our bountiful kitchen garden. We’ve worked from the ground up to build a wonderful English garden, brimming with biodiversity, for you to soak up the serenity of country life.

Buzzing bees and beautiful butterflies make spring a joy to witness, but life is very much seen through lilac lenses in the summer when our British lavender puts on a show. Here at The Story Pig, we harvest and make using everything we grow – from herb salads to sweet bakes and homemade lavender soaps.

CHARLOTTE’S BAKING

Born in Sweden and at home in Dorset, Charlotte’s delicious baked goods have a Scandinavian twist, with a pinch of patisserie flair from her time in Paris – and our customers keep coming back for more. Her signature Swedish cinnamon buns have their own foodie following!

A trained chef, Charlotte also showcases savoury delights, with our Tamworth free-range pork as the hero, accompanied by some of the best local ingredients we’ve sourced from the Southwest. From proper Scotch eggs, sausage rolls, and hog roasts with unbeatable crackling, to BBQ breakfast rolls, quintessential quiches and vibrant salads freshly picked from our garden, everything she does is made with love.

Celebrating the seasons, Charlotte’s homemade bakes are inspired by nature and European traditions. With many local suppliers at the heart of her ever-evolving recipes, you’ll always find something delicious and new to tickle your tastebuds.

When she’s not making and baking, you’ll find Charlotte tasting, testing, and creating new recipes behind the scenes in our farm kitchen.
