About Tim Barratt
Born in Shropshire the owner has a large family and equally large collection of animals. They bought Pitt Farm six years ago and have enjoyed the challenge of restoring the house and its grounds to the highest standard whilst preserving its historic features. As a family we enjoy a number of outdoor pursuits, all of which are readily available locally.
Tim Barratt purchased this Farmhouse in 2010
Why Tim Barratt chose Minehead
The Lywoods have been visiting West Somerset for many years and Pitt Farm presented the opportunity to have a unique house, close to the Sea and yet with all the obvious advantages of being in the Exmoor National Park.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Pitt has stunning views of the Moor and an exceptional garden with two fresh water pools and a small brook running past the sun terrace and is within easy reach of Historic Porlock Weir and a wealth of other beauty spots.

As host for a family holiday for 8 adults, 2 children, plus 2 dogs, I was the first to navigate my way down the narrow lanes full of suicidal pheasants. The further I went the more nervous I became that I might be confronted by a version of Cold Comfort Farm, with ‘something nasty in the woodshed’. However, as Pitt Farm came into view, my fears were blown away and my exploration of the house brought delightful surprises as each door was opened. The interior of Pitt Farm has been most lovingly created by a master craftsman, whom we had the pleasure to meet. His account of the renovation just added to our appreciation of every aspect of the house, from the beautiful doors to the wooden ‘chandeliers’ in the grand lounge with minstrels gallery. A sheer delight! On a practical level, the house was beautifully warm, and for the pyromaniacs amongst us, the biggest wood burner ever and ample supply of logs for additional heat. Our one regret was that none of us were musical enough to take advantage of the baby grand piano...! Yes, the house exceeds expectations on every level. Everything is of the best quality, bed linen, crockery, furnishings. So unexpected in a holiday rental. The gardens and location of the house were a safe space for the dogs, who were so outnumbered by the pheasants that they soon gave up giving chase. The children loved the stream and ponds and (under instruction from Dad) learnt how to divert and release the water flow between ponds. With dog walkers, mountain bikers and runners amongst the party, the location was ideal and family trips to Minehead, Porlock, Porlock Weir, Lynton and Lynmouth provided entertainment for all. A lovely family reunion in an ideal house and spot. I also have to say that dealing with Tim was straightforward and helpful and I was grateful for the prompt return of my deposit within a week of returning home. Thank you so much!
This lovely house made our stay in Exmoor a magical experience.
What a fantastic property! My family and I, ten of us in all, simply loved this place. Ten of us were celebrating my husband's 80th birthday and Pitt Farm was the perfect setting. It has been beautifully and very sympathetically restored and certainly has the wow factor. We loved the space, the nooks and crannies, the grounds, the stream running by the terrace, and the superb location in a beautiful valley. Wonderful memories.
Well furnished and secluded cottage
The house was well appointed and equipped. Easy to find, once you could navigate down the narrow lanes. The garden was a delight and the grandchildren loved the stream. A few 'how to guides' would have helped with the appliances.
Wonderful family retreat
Pitt Farm was everything we expected and more. We were a party of 7 adults and 4 children. The garden was so spacious that the children could play to their hearts content. The house was wonderful. The large kitchen diner had ample room for everyone and still had a cosy feel to it.All the rooms were well decorated.
And of course Exmoor is magnificent.
In short we had a wonderful week with all our children and grand children.
