Welcome to our fourth weekly round up for the Where the Flock campaign. Our theme this week was Places to Eat out. Thanks to some brilliant suggestions from our social media followers and website contact form, we have added a few very special businesses to our Where the Flock page. This blog contains a summary of all the businesses we have added to our digital guide to the British countryside between 29th April and 3rd May.
If you have any other examples of amazing rural businesses people can visit, please let us know! You can nominate a business either by filling in the form at the bottom of this page, commenting on one of our social media posts, or using the hashtags #wheretheflock and #thisisrural
