“A Hidden Gem” - Many first time visitors to the farm remark that it is such a beautiful location and that they have driven past for years without realising what’s here. The picturesque hamstone farmhouse with thatched roof dates back to the 16th century. In the old farmyard you will find The Cider Barn where you can buy our home-grown cider to take away or at weekends enjoy our fully stocked bar and a variety of freshly cooked food.
“Stay Green” – Not only will you be staying in our hay meadow or woodland, surrounded by ancient hedges and trees, with wildlife at your door, the electricity for the site and the hot water is supplied by our own solar panels; composting toilets minimise water usage and pollution; the facilities have been constructed using recycled/upcycled materials wherever possible; hundreds of trees have been planted around the site and the farm practices Regenerative Agriculture and runs on biofuels.
“All Mod Cons” – Despite the green credentials, you won’t be roughing it. The luxurious showers and composting toilets are hand crafted from oak and hidden among the trees, so they won’t detract from the rustic charm. The Field kitchen has fridge freezer, microwave, electric hob and kettle as well as washing up facilities. Tables and chairs are provided or you can use the log seats in the woodland glade.
“Glamorous” – We have two sizes of bell tent to choose from: Our Standard 5m bell tents are furnished with 4’6” double bed, rugs on the floor, table and chairs, electric lighting and sockets plus everything you need to make yourself a cuppa - a true glamping experience. Our Deluxe 6m bell tents have a king size bed and additional furniture and décor for that added sense of luxury. All bell tents come with their own fire pit / BBQ and outdoor table and chairs.
“Free to Roam” – During your stay you are welcome to explore our 73 acre farm. We have around 40 acres of cider apple orchards as well as unimproved grassland, woodland and other areas reserved for wildlife. You can follow the marked trail around the farm or find your own path. If you want to hike further afield, the Monarch’s Way and Liberty Trail long distance footpaths cross the farm and the Parrett Trail passes a mile away. There are also several cycle routes nearby.
“Lots to see here” – Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast is only 35 minutes drive, but there is also plenty to do closer to home: Ham Hill Country Park, Montacute House, Yeovilton RNAS Museum, Haynes Motor Museum, The Somerset Levels, Wells and Glastonbury, Hauser and Wirth in Bruton, The Newt near Castle Cary to name but a few.
