Escape To River Cottage: It is Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's dream to escape
the urban sprawl and find a little place in the country where he can live off
the fat of the land.
When Hugh finds River Cottage nestling in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside he sets about turning his dream into a reality. The first casualty to self-sufficiency is the flower bed which makes way for terracing to grow edible crops. Once the vegetables have been taken care of Hugh sets off in his 1965 Ford Corsair in search of livestock.
The first arrivals at the cottage are a pair of eight week old Gloucester Old Spot pigs but more animals soon follow.
Hugh also finds time to show how sumptuous meals can be prepared from the local produce be it sea fish, pigeons or freshly caught pike.
Return To River Cottage: The second series looking at the life of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall who continues to live in River Cottage in Dorset.
River Cottage Forever: The rolling hills and rugged countryside of Dorset provide the perfect backdrop for Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's experiment to leave the rat race behind to live off the fat of the land. Tucked away at the bottom of one of the county's valleys he finds his ideal home: River Cottage.
