It is cold here today - but soooo beautiful! I love these stunning mornings where the ground is crunchy under foot and the animals come running towards us to ask for extra breakfast. Everything is very still at the moment whilst we all wonder if it's about to snow.
The Deckhouse Cabin is available over Half Term from Monday 18th - Friday 22nd February. It costs £90 a night and sleeps a family of four. The cabin is well insulated and heated by an efficient wood burning stove (we provide all your firewood), there's a hot tub for hire too if you feel like star spotting in the evening.
There's lots to see nearby on Exmoor and plenty to do with the children. Dunster Castle and Knightshayes Court are both fab, or try Somerset Museums if you want to be inside.
We offer a breakfast hamper (and home cooked suppers) to guests staying at the farm. The hamper contains smoked back bacon and herb sausages from our free-range rare-breed pigs, the basket also contains jam, butter, homemade farmhouse bread and milk. There is an vegetarian version too with granola and yogurts as an alternative.
The amazing blood moon which is has loomed over us since Sunday is an beautiful spectacle. Exmoor National Park is listed as one of the best places to see it as we are so far from light pollution here. The park was awarded International Dark Sky Reserve status in 2011. Described as 'A vast black hole of silence' Exmoor is considered a perfect venue for watching the lunar eclipse. On a day where there is no moon, the human eye is able to see about 3,000 stars from this reserve.
Due to a cancellation, we have availability in The Deckhouse cabin next weekend (25th January), it sleeps a couple or a family of four, there's a hot tub available and the cabin gets perfectly warm with the wood stove in the sitting room as it's well insulated. A two night weekend stay is £160 and the hot tub is an optional extra. Book Now
