Perfectly located overlooking the Camel river, Camel Valley Vineyard is an inspiring example of the new wave of English wine. Founded by Bob and Annie Lindo in the late 1980s – he was a former RAF pilot – the last few years have seen it harvest almost as many awards as grapes.

It's not vast though – turn up the leafy lane into their drive right by the popular Camel Trail walking and biking route and you'll see the vineyards, winery and friendly Cellar Door. Book to go on either the summer weekday tour or the very popular Wednesday early evening Grand Tour. Then allow some time to sit on the verandah or upper terrace and enjoy the ambience. Both still and sparkling wines are turning heads.

The two cosy, self-catering cottages are delightful for those who want to tarry a while longer.

Don't miss

Bacchus – seen by many as the UK's answer to Sauvignon Blanc, the Lindos are among the front-runners with this aromatic, textured grape
