Nearby

It's three miles to Exmoor National Park (01398 323665), home to some of the finest walking and scenery in the country, with Tarr Steps a particularly good route for families. 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 excellent fish and chips. Within the national park, Porlock Weir, Lynton 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) or visit the licensed on-site farm shop for local goodies including produce from the farm, homemade meals and 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), 20 miles away. There are also lots of lovely independent eateries in 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; it’s not suitable to walk.

Opening Times

Deckhouse cabin & cottage: Open all year.

Safari tents: Spring to November.

Family Friendly

You don't need to go on safari to stay in a safari tent these days. But with alpacas, goats and rare breed pigs and sheep, you can make a very British safari of your own at Middle Stone Farm. Binoculars aren't even required.

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're a working Organic Farm with rare breed pigs, goats, flocks of chickens, ducks and geese, friendly farm dogs and a flock of rare breed sheep. Farm tours are available for interested guests.

Five of the safari lodges sleep up to six people and the largest lodge Stag sleeps eight so a good choice for extended families. All the accommodation is spacious and comfy and designed with families and couples in mind. We are not a site for adult groups and do not host any more than 4 adults in any of our safari lodges without prior agreement. The cabin and cottage are suitable for a maximum of 2 adults and have bedrooms for up to 2 young children under 13.

All our glamping has private bathrooms with proper loos, electricity, fridges and private hot tubs. Each lodge has its own hammock, firepit barbecue, outside furniture and Swedish hot tub, all the glamping has good views 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.

There are two children's play areas and a well stocked farm shop in the glamping fields open from Spring to November.

Three of our safari lodges are suitable for a single dog on a lead, we also keep some accommodation dog free for guests with allergies.

Getting There

A rare campsite where putting the postcode in your Sat Nav actually works! It will bring you all the way and take the quickest route. If you don't have one, then, from Taunton, take the B3227 to Wiveliscombe. In Wiveliscombe take the B3188 which will take you through the village of Ford and up the hill to Pitsford Hill and past the cricket club. ¼ mile from Pitsford Hill take the lane marked Brompton Ralph on the left, Middle Stone Farm is the first driveway on the left.

A direct train from London Paddington (0845 748 4950) to Taunton (0845 748 4950) takes 1hr 45 minutes if you're on the fast train. The glamping site is still a 30 minute drive from Taunton train station though and there is no public transport to Brompton Ralph.  You need a car to make the most of your visit!
