We're receiving lots of enquiries about May Half Term at the moment so I think people are booking their glamping holidays well in advance this year. We have a few lodges still available over half term for either a weekend stay or a full week including a few of our dog friendly safari tents.
We're expecting about 50 lambs in the spring and will also have pigs, goats, chickens (and chicks) and lots going on around the farm. We very much hope we can restart our farm tours and pizza evenings again this year, we've been missing our guests during the lockdown.
May and early June is a lovely time on the farm, the lambs will be getting fatter but there will still be lots of opportunities to help with orphan bottle feeding for any keen visitors. The fields are bright green in the early summer and we think the farm is at its most beautiful in May. The field with Porlock, Kilve and Bossington lodges is covered in buttercups and clover, the sheep only graze in this field in the winter so there are lots more wildflowers in the glamping fields as they've not been eaten!
For days out we highly recommend heading to the coast, or up onto Exmoor our local National Park. Devon is also within easy reach, we're only a few miles from the border and there are lots of family days out south of us too.
If you're coming to stay with your dog we have lots of brilliant dog walk recommendations. Our dogs love Blue Anchor Bay, it's a very dog friendly beach and never very busy, so perfect to let your dog run off-the-lead. There's a nice simple cafe at Blue Anchor called The Driftwood, also dog friendly and it's free to park close to the beach. Tarr Steps is also lovely for both humans and dogs, it's an easy circular walk and dogs can swim in the shallow river - for lunch book a table at The Tarr Farm Inn, we've not eaten there yet, but we hear good feedback from lots of guests who've eaten there. There are tables outside and it's a really pretty location.
