  • Uncover the story - UK farmers have faced numerous challenges, but instead of walking away from a way of life that often spans generations, many have cultivated flourishing new businesses. Come to Melton today and you’ll discover a growing trend in unique holiday accommodation which keeps visitors flocking. <hr> These rural retreats, from glamping pods to cottage hideaways, are perfectly placed for country walks, strolls through ‘Rural Capital of Food’ Melton Mowbray, or much-needed rest and relaxation. <hr> Blending into Eye Kettleby Lakes’ idyllic woodland setting are a luxury lodge, farmhouse, touring park and glamping pods. Indulgent touches include hot tubs, firepits and saunas, not to mention a clubhouse, eight lakes and even a warm-water dog shower. Fair Farm Hideaway, a working farm in Waltham on the Wolds, also comes with its own lakes, and its hot tubs complement 10 hand-crafted shepherd huts. <hr> For your own home from home, pitch your caravan at Wymondham Windmill. As well as this rare six-sailed mill, you’ll find a woodland trail, cycle routes and boutique shops on your doorstep. <hr> Another growing industry is bed and breakfast, and many have sprung up in Melton. Take walks through the picturesque Vale of Belvoir from The Old Nurseries B&B in Stathern, or stroll to a Michelin Bib Gourmand pub from The Old Stables in Burrough on the Hill. <hr> Growing families can take over Eye Kettleby’s Old Guadaloupe Farmhouse and Cottage, or Lake View Lodge in Holwell, secreted within a landscape of woodland and open fields. The whole gang are welcome at Poplars Farm too, where the grain store and stables have become The Big Barn, and shepherd huts sprout from the paddock. <hr> If two’s company, cosy up at Side Saddle Hideaway in Twyford. Its bedroom skylight will help you cultivate a new interest of your own – stargazing – without even leaving bed. <hr>
