About The Deckhouse at Middle Stone Farm

Middle Stone Farm is a place to kick back and relax, switch off your mobile phones and spend some quality 'quiet' time together as a family…

Middle Stone Farm, in Somerset, is home to a veritable menagerie of animals; with a flock of free range chickens, geese, alpaca, sheep, goats, usually some pigs, and a family dog. there is always something going on the farm! The Deckhouse has high chairs, travel cots, children's books and toys to borrow. The farm is set in 32 acres of farmland and surrounded by rolling countryside, near Taunton on the edge of the Exmoor National Park. So pack your wellies and get ready to embrace the simple things in life, with beautiful West Somerset, Exmoor and the North Devon coast just beckoning to be explored.

The Deckhouse

The Deckhouse available all year round, is a quaint two bedroom holiday home with whitewashed panelled walls and a full width outdoor porch. With views overlooking the farmland, you'll be forgiven if you think it's not too dissimilar from the 'Little House on the Prairie'. It has a relaxed ambiance, with stripped wooden floors, soft and cosy furnishings with a pop of colour to inject warmth and personality.  There is a mixture of old and new, with lots of bits and bobs adding to the homely charm. High, beamed ceilings make the open plan living area feel spacious and airy while a large wood burning stove keeps the whole place toasty and warm whatever the season. In one corner of the living area is a two-seater sofa, flatscreen TV, while the other half of the room comprises a central dining table and fitted kitchen. The Deckhouse is all one level and has a bedroom at either end, plus a shower room/wc. One bedroom has a king-size bed and space for a travel cot, which can be provided. The second has bespoke bunk beds which are have been designed specifically for children. 

The Deckhouse is located on the far side of the farm, away from the field with the glamping tents, so you are assured of your own privacy. All the better to enjoy the fabulous and decadent Swedish hot tub; heated by a wood burner it does require a good 3-4 hours to get the water to a suitable temperature. 

Glamping at it's finest.

The Farm Shop

The Farm shop is open from Easter to October where you can buy everything to make a delious cooked breakfast - farm sausages and bacon from the farms own free range pigs and blue eggs from the hens. West Country milk and butter, homemade jams, ice creams, Somerset apple juice, delicious sourdough bread from the White Post Bakery, Devon pies and pasties and local goat's cheese. They also sell freshly baked warm croissants and pain au chocolate to order along with the weekend papers in the morning.  There is a selection of excellent value quality wines, local beers and cider.

The Locality and Things To Do

Middle Stone Farm is at the end of a private lane, approximately one mile from the little village of Brompton Ralph in West Somerset. The farm is set in 32 acres of farmland and surrounded by rolling countryside, just a few miles from Exmoor National Park where you choose to book with Exmoor Wildlife Safaris for a tour. There are lots of National Trust places nearby including Dunster Castle, Knightshayes, Killerton and Montecute House. A great way to see the countryside is to take a trip along the coast on a traditional steam train with ​West Somerset Heritage Railway. The owners recommed Lee Bay which is their favourite beach and usually pretty empty with a nice cafe too. As you are located close to Devon's border if you fancy a run out further afield then Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands are family favourites. Tarr Steps is a memorable sunny day out, where you can while away the hours paddling in the river with fishing nets and enjoying an ice cream or a picnic.
