You’ll breakfast like a king at Cholderton Farm Shop & Café, a convenient halfway point between the South West and London. It’s a working farm so hens and cockerels scratch around in the yard and tractors park up outside the beautiful flint and red-brick farm shop.
The homely welcome in the café more than makes up for the simple surroundings, not to mention the grade-A bacon butties. Shelves ring the room, laden with essentials – bread, vegetables, chutneys – and the fridges are full of Pieminister pies, local cheese and a range of deli treats that will more than supply you for your destination.
The coffee is barista standard and staff deliver plates of crisp jacket potatoes, amply filled toasties, huge ploughman’s and homemade quiches to tables scattered about inside. To get a real taste of the country, take a picnic table in the covered barn outside or a parasoled one on sunny days.
