The Owner Says
In a four acre field with stunning views towards Exmoor National Park stand three luxurious safari lodges each with a wood-fired hot tub. Stag Lodge is extra large and comfortably sleeps up to 8 people making it a great glamping option for extended family groups or a gathering of friends.
The lodge has two king bedrooms, a twin room and separate quirky king cabin bed in the living space. The comfortable beds are made up for your arrival with freshly laundered bed linen, thick duvets and plenty of blankets. There is a spacious bathroom in the centre of the lodge with large walk in shower, upcycled basin and flushing loo, plus a second loo in a cloak room. There’s plenty of hot water is demand.
The large kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to make delicious meals on the wood stove (a bit like an Aga) or prepare a barbecue. There's a large fridge/freezer plus electrical sockets for charging a phone. The lighting is via LED lights and there are plenty of candles for evening atmosphere too! The large oak dining table is in the centre of the tents. Comfy sofas face the fire and there are lots of books and board games to borrow for the evening.
The lodge has two outside decks with dining furniture and wonderful views. There is a large private wood fired hot tub available outside of the lodge, a barbecue area, picnic table and star of hammocks.
Stag is the lodge in the middle and Fox and Badger Lodges stand either side it it, these three lodges are also a good option for group bookings.
The play area, shop and car park are under a minute's walk away from Stag Lodge.
About Middle Stone Farm
Watching the flames dance in the fire pits whilst toasting marshmallows and sipping a good red wine from our shop!
It's very rural here, we're well off the beaten track. You won't find queues of traffic on the roads when you head out to explore and you'll be overwhelmed by the beauty of the unspoilt hills.
Food & Drink
The Notley Arms in Monksilver is great and Scarlett's Garden is lovely for lunch and artisan pizzas on Sundays. The Pebbles Tavern in Watchet is fun in the evening with sea shanties and acoustic music and loads of ciders. Tracebridge has a great Friday pizza night through the summer and a hip atmosphere.
Family FriendlyYou don't need to go on safari to stay in a safari tent these days. But with alpacas, goats and rare breed pigs and sheep, you can make a very British safari of your own at Middle Stone Farm. Binoculars aren't even required.
Middle Stone Farm is located at Middle Stone Farm, Brompton Ralph, Somerset TA4 2RT
From Taunton, take the B3227 to Wiveliscombe, and from there follow the B3188 which will take you through the village of Ford and up the hill to Pitsford Hill and the cricket club. Shortly after Pitsford Hill you will see a lane marked 'Brompton Ralph' on the left; take this and after three field entrances you will see Middle Stone Farm.A direct train from London Paddington (0845 748 4950) to Taunton (0845 748 4950) takes 1hr 45 minutes if you're on the fast train. The glamping site is still a 30 minute drive from Taunton train station though and there is no public transport to Brompton Ralph. You need a car to make the most of your visit!
