The family living off-grid in the woods in Somerset

Residents of a small off-grid community say they wanted to "slow life down" and escape consumerism.

Tinkers Bubble is a 40-acre site in the south of Somerset and home to more than a dozen people.

They heat water using firewood, do not use fossil fuels and have solar panels for electricity.
