Nearby

It's three miles to Exmoor National Park (01398 323665), home to some of the finest walking and scenery in the country, with the lovely circular walk at Tarr Steps a particularly good route for families where you can also wild swim. Wimbleball Lake is another popular destination with walking and cycling routes around the water and watersports available on it (01398 371460). A little further north and you end up at the seaside, overlooking the Bristol Channel. Kilve beach, an area of Special Scientific Interest, is a top spot to go searching for fossils, while the sandy beach at Blue Anchor Bay is also popular – backed by the Driftwood Cafe serving fish and chips and cream teas.  Within the national park, Porlock Weir, Lynton & Lynmouth and the Lorna Doone Valley are also particularly stunning. There are good National Trust properties within a 30-minute drive too including Dunster Castle and Watermill, Coleridge Cottage and the vast Holnicote Estate

Food & Drink

You can pre-order homemade meals, breakfast hampers and meat from the farm all year round or visit the licensed on-site farm shop for local goodies including produce from the farm, local beers, cider and wine. Catherine and Patrick will likely suggest the best places to eat out but some consistently good local-ish recommendations include The White Post Cafe (01823 400322) seven miles away in Langford Budville and The Lost Kitchen (01884 242427), near Tiverton.  There are also lots of lovely independent eateries in beautiful Porlock Weir. The closest shops to site are in Wivelscombe, four miles away and the nearest pub is The Bear Inn, a three-and-a-half-mile drive away.

Deckhouse cabin & cottage: Open all year.

The Owner Says

Middle Stone Farm in rural West Somerset offers six luxuriously furnished safari lodges, a wooden cabin and quirky self catering cottage each complete with their own private hot tubs and views of the surrounding hills.  We opened our farm to glamping in 2016 and we're a well established holiday location. 

We're a working Farm with rare breed pigs, goats, flocks of chickens, ducks and geese, friendly farm dogs and a flock of rare breed sheep.  Complimentary farm tours are available through the glamping season from April to early November.

All the accommodation is spacious and comfy and designed with families and couples in mind.  We do have rules for groups, so please contact us before booking if you want to discuss staying at the same time as friends or extended family.   We are not an appropriate site for adult groups.

All the glamping has private bathrooms with proper flushing loos (not compost), lots of the safari tent bathrooms are ensuite.  All the accommodation has private kitchens well equipped with everything you need for cooking and dining.  All our accommodation has electric power and sockets for charging phones, there's a good 4G signal on the farm, but we don't have points for charging electric cars yet.  Private wood fired hot tubs can be booked with us the owner.   All the glamping has hammocks and firepits too. 

Middle Stone Farm is ideally located for exploring nearby Exmoor National Park and the stunning North Devon coast. We are in a quiet part of the West Country, it's never busy here even in August! Highlights are Porlock Weir, Dunkery Beacon, Tarr Steps, Bossington Beach, Dulverton and Dunster Castle, the Lorna Doone Valley and circular walk at stunning Simonsbath.  The nearest towns is Taunton, 25 minutes drive.  We don't have public transport here unfortunately, you do need a car to explore!  The coast is 25 minutes drive. 

There are two children's play areas open from 1st April to 1st November and a well stocked farm shop in the glamping fields is open for the same duration.

A single well behaved dog may stay in Kestrel, Hawk and Buzzard Lodges for £30 extra, please make sure they are booked in on your reservation form.

Getting There

A rare campsite where putting the postcode in your Sat Nav actually works!   Catherine will confirm precise directions to the farm and parking instructions in her arrival email. 

You really need a car to stay here, unless you're coming for just a couple of days in the summer when you might feel happy to stay onsite in which case you can get a taxi from Taunton Station (25 minutes drive).  The fast train from Paddington to Taunton takes 1hr 45 minutes, a taxi here costs about £30.  If you are arriving by taxi please let us know beforehand and make sure your taxi drop off and pick up times are within our check in and out times.
