Middle Stone Farm
Your eco-friendly Somerset glamping sanctuary awaits, where you can enjoy getting back to nature and meeting new friends in fresh farmland luxury.
Middle Stone Farm is a bustling haven of lively activity, offering not only plenty of luxury eco-friendly accommodation set on acres of lush farmland, but also a friendly welcoming committee of chickens, geese, alpaca, rare-breed sheep and goats!
The perfect base for escaping to explore the beauty of Somerset and the North Devon coastline, Middle Stone Farm is home to six lavish safari lodges (two of which are dog friendly), complete with their own wood-fired Swedish hot tub, a charmingly converted stable cottage and a wooden Deckhouse cabin also with hot tub - simply choose your ideal place to rest your heads and get ready to enjoy plenty of natureful comfort and adventure!
Nestled in a three-acre glamping field and generously spaced for privacy, the canvas safari lodges each sleep up to six people with room for an extra cot, except for one larger lodge sleeping up to 8 or 9 - great for larger families. A swing ball set and a hammock await you outside, while inside you'll find a king-sized bed, twin beds and a double, all dressed in fresh cotton linen for a sound night's sleep.
The luxury doesn't end there, as each lodge also houses its own sustainably-heated shower room and flushing toilet...no late-night queues for the loo here! The kitchen area is well-equipped, with all you need to prepare hearty feasts. You'll find a barbecue and picnic table outside, for when only al-fresco dining will do.
Relax on the decking - or better still, in your private hot tub - as you enjoy the blissfully tranquil views across to Exmoor and the rolling Quantock Hills, perhaps watching the first stars appear in the evening sky over a glass of bubbles!
The ground-level cottage, lovingly converted from a former stable, is situated opposite a large barn and attached to the farmhouse. Cheerfully and colourfully decorated, you'll discover plenty of original features throughout, including a slate floor and traditional ceiling beams. The bedrooms are cosy and welcoming, while the shower room is contemporary and indulgently spacious.
The enchanting wooden Deckhouse, with views across wide open grazing land, is secluded on the other side of the farm, making it ideal for small groups looking for extra privacy. With its own wood-fired hot tub and barbecue that's perfect for toasting marshmallows, you'll find you have all you need for a fresh-air filled break full of natural luxury, as you admire the whitewashed timber walls and prepare mouthwatering feasts in the kitchen area.
The Deckhouse sleeps up to four people, with a king-sized bed and a mini bunk room ideal for children. Plentiful hot water awaits you in the shower room, and a wood-fired stove will ensure everybody is kept blissfully warm and cosy throughout.
Finding things to do during your stay is effortlessly easy, with friendly owners Catherine and Patrick on hand with plenty of local tips and recommendations. On site you'll find plenty of opportunities for the kids (large or small!) to tire themselves out, making friends with the farm animals and with plenty of space to run around in and create some brand-new imaginative adventures, too!
A farm shop, open from Easter to October and bursting with fresh local produce, will supply you with essentials from fresh pastries, sausages and eggs to tasty homemade pies, while further afield there are plenty of pubs to explore! Babysitting services can be arranged if you decide to leave the kids at home for the odd evening.
With scenic Exmoor and the bracing Quantocks perfectly positioned nearby, you won't need to travel very far to discover a wealth of stunning walks and cycling routes. Beach lovers will be in absolute heaven, with an array of coastal havens both close by and further afield, all ready and waiting to be discovered.
So pack up your loved ones and head on down to the farm for fresh activity, absorbing views and luxury rustic-style accommodation that will have you feeling relaxed, revived and energised in no time at all!
