2017 was an amazing year !!

Standard

2017 saw a full on year and we decided we would put Devon valley glamping in hibernation for a season.

What we have been up to:

We supported our eldest son and daughter in law to open a restaurant in Bristol, all hands to the deck.

Jonny made all the table, old scaffold boards and a local farmer welded the legs, looking good

We are pleased to say Asado is going really well, it is inspired by both Lucien and Jackie, his wife’s pasts. Lucien grew up here in the valley with organic farming around him which seems to have seeped into his psyche. Jackie is from Columbia and Asado cooking is very popular, cooking over wood fire and the result is an infusion of both. The meat used is from higherhackell farm which a couple of valleys away from ours. So if you are planning a trip to Bristol check them out.

About Fiona Gordon

I am a mother and now a proud grandmother of two beautiful boys. I am married to Jon Lincoln-Gordon a wonderful landscape artist and teacher. I have worked as a mental health nurse for many years and understand the importance of nature and creativity to our mental health. I love living in our tranquil valley in Devon, I have a small flock of Jacob sheep and use their fleece to spin, dye, weave, knit and crochet. I grow a lot of my own dye stuffs and am never more happy than boiling up flowers heads and dying my own wool, well maybe when I have finished a project having created it from scratch. We decided to share our little bit of heaven by doing some Glamping, we have three old caravans we have restored so people can come and stay and top up on some peace and calm.
