We are very well placed for Exmoor National Park, it is only 3 miles up the road. The Quantock Hills are 20 minutes away. Taunton and M5 are 25 minutes away. The coast is 25 minutes away, Kilve is famous for fossil hunting and Blue Anchor is nice with a good cafe (The Driftwood). Dunster is a lovely historic village with a famous National Trust castle. Definitely visit Bossington Beach, Porlock Weir, Lynton & Lynmouth, Watersmeet, Tarr Steps and Dulverton! Good pubs to check out are The Notley Arms, Monksilver, The Rock at Watterow (not so child friendly), Rising Sun West Bagborough, The Bear in Wiveliscombe is good if you're on a budget. There are more eateries on our website.
We also have a glamping site on our farm with three luxury safari tents and a wooden cabin, you can't see the tents from the cottage. There is a little playground on the farm and some mini ride on tractors for toddlers. We also have a farm shop which is open to our guests from March to October.
WiFi is provided although it is not very fast.
Brompton Ralph is our nearest village, 1 mile from our farm. It is a very rural community with a shop which opens for a few hours every morning and there are beautiful walks all around. You will find The Co Op supermarket in Wiveliscombe which is a 8 minute drive from here, there are also pubs, a good butcher, a few takeaways etc. We really recommend Exmoor, there is so much to see and do there and it is 3 miles from here.
There is a hot tub for hire on the cottage terrace, it's wood fired and there's a store of logs for you to fuel it yourselves. The hot tub is an extra, please contact us for a quote if you wish to use it whilst you're staying here. You'll find more details about the cottage and hot tub on our website if you look up Middle Stone Farm.
We accept 1 well behaved dog for a £25 fee, if you are thinking of bringing a dog, please make sure it is well behaved, wormed & healthy without any skin conditions. We do not allow dogs on beds or sofas and we ask if you're going out for the day you please take your dog with you too. Please don't leave it alone in the cottage. Your dog will need to be on a lead at our farm as there are two farm dogs here, free ranging chickens, lambs and piglets in the spring and visiting children around. Please pick up anything your dog does and throw it in the black bins in the yard. We can lend you some poop bags if you forget to bring them, along with a couple of dog bowls and some fleeces.
If you have any questions with regard to our accommodation and farm, please do get in touch, we are happy to help.
