Although we're in a gorgeous, unspoilt and untouristy area of the South West, there is plenty to do within easy reach of Middle Stone Farm. Dunster Castle is fantastic for all ages, it's 25 minutes from here and a gorgeous drive through the edge of Exmoor to get there. This photo is of Lynmouth, well worth a day trip and with incredible views towards Wales. The West Somerset Railway is fun if you're a vintage train enthusiast and there are some gorgeous beaches near us to visit too. Our closest are Kilve for fossil hunting and Blue Anchor which is sandy at low tide. Tarr Steps and Porlock Weir are also high on our 'must visit' list.
We have one safari tent left for a mid week stay from 27th May. It's Kestrel Lodge and it sleeps six. And we have several options for the last weekend of half term, the weekend of 31st May. For prices and to make a booking by credit or debit card click here.
We have glamping available over half term. The two safari tents are very family friendly with private bathrooms, hot tubs, spacious bedrooms and gorgeous views over open farmland. The Deckhouse is also available from 27th May - a lovely glamping cabin with hot tub for family of four. Middle Stone Farm is in the foothills of Exmoor National Park, a perfect base for exploring the North Devon coast and Somerset.
We have availability in a couple of safari tents this weekend (17th May), Hawk Lodge has been discounted to £450 for a three night stay for up to 6 people, this is a dog friendly glamping lodge.
This lodge in the photo above is Badger and is priced £495 for a three night stay. If you're coming with children who'd like a farm tour, we are offering tractor rides on Sunday and a farm tour including lamb feeding and an opportunity to meet the pigs and alpaca. Book Now.
As well as our farm tour, we're offering families a ride round the farm behind a 1973 vintage tractor! We have a few lodges available next weekend and also over May Half Term. Book Now
Taunton Green Parents Group are marching for climate change awareness on Sunday 12th May, meet at midday outside Clarks.
Over the winter we added some upcycled features to our play area in the glamping field. This is our tyre race - made from recycled tractor and van tyres which would otherwise have gone to the tip or made toxic fumes on someone's bonfire! It's great fun watching our guests - both big and small - race each other over the tyres. We have also created a volley ball pitch using posts made from abandoned telegraph poles.
Our three orphan lambs are thriving and enjoying their freedom in the glamping field paddock. Harold their Daddy (a huge and very handsome Exmoor ram) shares the paddock with them, he's very tame and gentle and loves to meet our guests when we run our farm tours. The lambs are still having milk in a bottle and any children staying here in May are welcome to help with the bottle feeding.
We have availability for the May Half Term holidays including one lodge for the Bank Holiday weekend. Hawk and The Deckhouse Cabin have four night stays available from the Bank Holiday Monday and we're offering week stays in the other accommodation. Come and meet the animals, explore Exmoor National Park and its stunning coastline, or just relax in your hot tub or hammock!
We've nearly finished lambing and have 25 lovely skippy lambs on the farm including three orphans who guests are helping bottle feed. We're full now for the Easter Weekend and first May Bank Holiday but have availability next weekend for guests who'd like to stay two or three nights in a luxury safari lodge.
