alde valley spring festival

i love discovering new things in remote spots that you would never know existed;  the alde valley spring festival is just about to start at White House Farm in Great Glenham, suffolk – celebrating food, farming, landscape and the arts. you are greeted with fields of bleating lambs, a shepherds hut, tea room with homemade flapjacks, and several barns and outhouses filled with art, including works by the renowned local artist Maggie Hambling.   outside is a covered seating area, laid out for dinner for many;  there are supper evenings on thursdays cooked with ingredients grown on the farm, lots of activities for children,  all in all a lovely place to drop by, have a cup of tea and see some art.   i particularly loved the hand made knives by Tobias Ford. there is even a shop selling ethically sourced baskets, local honey and ceramics.   take a look at their website to see whats on.    Glenham is about half an hour from my suffolk cottage;  i have realised what a great base the cottage is for exploring the suffolk region, plus we are only 5 mins drive from one of the best unspoilt beaches in the area – Covehithe.
