The Owner Says

The Deckhouse Cabin at Middle Stone Farm sleeps a couple or family of 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 13.  There's an open plan living space with well equipped kitchen and sitting room.  The main bedroom has a king bed and there's a mini bunk room suitable for up to 2 young children. The view from the private veranda looks over open farm land with grazing animals.

There's a modern bathroom with hot shower, basin and loo.  All the bedlinen and towels are provided.  Cooking is on a mini oven with hob, there's a undercounter fridge freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster and cafetiere.  The cabin is heated by an efficient wood burner in the sitting room and a generous supply of firewood is provided along with kindling and firelighters. 

The cabin is open all year round, it's well insulated and perfectly warm.  There is no WiFi in the cabin but a 4G phone signal can be picked up outside on the farm.

The Deckhouse is separate to the rest of our accommodation and a good choice for guests seeking privacy as it's not overlooked.  The six safari lodges are in fields a couple of minute's walk away.  There are two children's play areas on the farm open from April to October. 

The private wood fired hot tub is close to the cabin in a fenced garden within our apple orchard.  The hot tub is not included in the cost of your stay, this is an optional extra.  If you are staying in the winter we recommend a pre heat too as it takes a long time to get hot in the winter months.   For heating times and information about how the hot tub works get in touch.    A user video will be emailed to guests who have hired it.

About Middle Stone Farm

Suitable For

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 Friendly

You 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.

Getting There

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!
