Hello fellow permies

I live in Bridport, Dorset (UK) in a rented flat with my teenage son and I'm really keen to be more land based.

If anyone knows of any property/land/unusual habitable space that might be suitable please let me know.

Thanks

Oh hey, by the way...Uh, you live in Dorset and you don't know about the River Cottage series & Hugh Fernly Wittingstall or the landshare project that he set up? That seems impossible, but just in case you should check it(the shows)/him out. Also, this blog post will give you an idea of what it's all about:

Hope this is helpful...

Thanks for the tips Simon, I'm actually just down the road from River Cottage.

As an aside when I moved down to West Dorset I registered on Landshare for a plot to grow veg on and had one or two offers for land which was too far away, then I put up a couple of notices on inboards in town and had no fewer than 9 responses and picked the best plot for my veg growing project

Still looking for somewhere to live if anyone has any more ideas or knows anyone with a run down smallholding they want looking after
