Access statement

Free to roam

Cows & chickens are your local neighbours and only a stone's throw away

Our organic farm in the Somerset countryside is truly stunning, and provides fabulous opportunities to get out on adventures.  There are woodlands, ponds, meadows, streams and footpaths to explore, and walks to local cafe's to enjoy.  

The Orchard next to The Cottage Beyond is often home to Blackberry and Charlotte our pet Kune Kune pigs.  Cattle graze the lush grassland, including in the field beside Yonder View, and wildlife frequent the beautiful surroundings; with deer and fox often spotted on our walks around the farm, beside the stream and through the woods. Beyond the farm there are plenty of things to do too; although many guests find that once they are here they just don't want to leave!
