Glamping in Somerset with Hot Tubs, Dog Friendly & Family Friendly Holidays
We still have quite a lot of availability this summer with both short and long stays available, we have tried to be a bit more flexible this year. Our three dog friendly glamping lodges are Buzzard, Hawk and Kestrel, we allow two well behaved dogs in each of these three lodges, we have a paddock available too where dogs can run off their leads whist you relax with a coffee or cider!
We're a very family friendly site with two children's play areas within the glamping fields. The grass is long and swishy at the moment and full of wild flowers which the butterflies are enjoying, although I expect the grass will become bales soon
Dog Friendly Glamping with Hot Tubs
This is one of our dog friendly glamping lodges, all our safari tents sleep up to six guests, they all have firepits like this one and large Swedish wood fired hot tubs. When we arrived at Middle Stone Farm we planted a lot of shrubs and trees, the grass is lush here so it's taken them a while whilst they compete for space, but they're doing well this year and I think they're really pretty. There are apple trees as well as some native Somerset varieties. We have solar fairy lighting ncar the hot tubs so you can enjoy time outside without fumbling around for a torch. There's very little light pollution in West Somerset, we're not near any cities so the clear nights are amazing for anyone wanting to do some star gazing.
Glamping with Hot Tubs, Somerset, South West UK
West Somerset is a bit of a secret whilst a lot of tourists whizz through on their way to Cornwall. It's a really beautiful part of the South West, we're three miles from Exmoor, the least visited National Park in the country so you won't find the rivers and footpaths crowded. We have a page of favourite walks above under our Explore page and the beaches are all fairly quiet as well, even on a busy Sunday in August. They're a combination of sand and stones, the nearest beach is Blue Anchor Bay, 25 minutes from here, free to park with an inexpensive cafe called The Driftwood. On a hot summer's day the rivers on Exmoor are pretty gorgeous, Tarr Steps (below) is the most famous, if you walk away from the clapper bridge you'll most likely have the footpath to yourselves and there are gorgeous spots for a picnic and wild swim.

Glamping on a Somerset Farm with Hot Tubs
We've noticed some families who stay here for a short glamping break don't leave the farm! Hanging out in a hot tub is a pretty relaxing way to spend an afternoon! We have plenty of books, children's toys, we have a little glamping farm shop, alpacas to peer at over the hedge, childrens swings, climbing frames and lots of paths through the grass to play hide and seek. Our hot tubs take 3hrs to heat up, if we're not busy we can sometimes heat them for guests, there's information about that on our hot tub page. They're more eco than the electric hot tubs, our firewood comes from sustainable forestry nearby. They're safe for children over the age of 5, and lovely for the adults when the children are tucked up in bed!
