Tales from River Cottage re-tells the story of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s three years as a smallholder in rural Dorset from the perspective of his recent decision to embrace the life of a smallholder long term.
With all the best storylines and characters from across the River Cottage series, the episodes are themed according to the main elements of Hugh’s experiment. Each program also contains up-dates of Hugh’s progress on his new farm, as well as news of favourite characters (both four legged and two) from the three series.
Hugh shows how, while having the time of his life, he also learned an enormous amount. He started out wet behind the ears and ended up a little bit wiser and a whole lot happier.

Hugh reminisces about the early days at River Cottage, and offers advice to would-be smallholders on how to find their rural escape hatch and get started on the good life.
