The Owner Says
The award winning Deckhouse Cabin looks similar to a cricket pavilion. It is rustic and slightly quirky - we describe it as half self catering cottage - half glamping. It's on the other side of the farm from the safari lodges so ideal if you are looking for a bit of privacy as it's not overlooked.
The Deckhouse sleeps two adults or a family of four. There's a king bed in the main bedroom and a mini bunk room at the other end of the cabin. The bunk room is small with narrow beds suitable for children and young teenagers - not adults. Bedlinen and towels are provided. The view from the main bedroom and living space is over rolling open farmland with grazing sheep and a family of geese.
The kitchen is well equipped with mini-oven/hob, microwave, little retro style fridge-freezer and table with Ercol chairs. The open plan living space has a wood burning stove with logs provided, comfy sofa, wall mounted TV, books & games, colourful pictures and vintage knick-knacks. The modern shower room has towels, loo paper and soap etc provided. The cabin is well insulated and perfectly warm with the fire lit all year round. There is no WiFi in the cabin but a 4G phone signal can be picked up outside on the farm.
The sunny front veranda looks out over open farmland towards the hills. There is a private wood fired hot tub available for hire along with a hammock, picnic table and barbecue area close to the cabin.
We do not allow dogs or pets to stay in The Deckhouse Cabin.
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!
