Christmas Holiday Cottage and Winter Glamping
If you’re looking to escape to the country for Christmas and New Year we still have some availability in both our holiday cottage and quirky cabin. Both are warm and cosy, with wood burning stoves and will be festively decorated and welcoming.
The cottage is the more conventional option with central heating, WiFi, dishwasher etc, whilst the cabin is more alternative, yet perfectly warm and cosy as the walls are full of insulation, with the wood burner lit you’ll be cosy and warm in there, and this year's lambs are grazing in the paddock just in front of your bedroom window, a lovely view to wake up ton in the morning.
Visit Dunster Castle and the Historic Village
The lovely buzzing village of Dunster and Dunster Castle are lovely to visit in the winter months. Over Christmas and during the school Christmas holidays they are running a winter wander trail for families with children, I'm sure the castle will be beautifully decorated too. We also love Knightshayes Court if you've already seen Dunster, another brilliant National Trust with lots to explore both inside and out.
The Brewhouse in Taunton is showing the Wind in The Willows, tickets are being snapped up though so do book soon if you'd like to see it. It's a lovely small theatre, very child friendly too.
If like us you need a long bracing walk after lots of good wine and food on Christmas day, Dunkery Beacon, The Quantock Hills, Bossington Beach and the Exmoor hills are all gorgeous and right on our door step. There are lots of traditional pubs on Exmoor, we like The Royal Oak at Luxborough, but again, do book ahead if you want to go in the holidays, it's popular and you'll need to reserve a table. Blue Anchor Beach is our nearest, it's 25 minutes from the farm. I took this photo below on Christmas Day 2020! Crossing my fingers for more blue skies this Christmas day and an opportunity to wear warm silly hats!
