Huntstile Organic Farm: The sheeperds hut. Home for a few days!

General

  • Farm site over 270 acres, two miles from the Quantock Hills
  • Help feed the farm pigs, goats and chickens
  • Footpaths and woodland to walk; maps provided; breakfast available

Foodies: this is the site for you. Huntstile Organic Farm, in the foothills of Somerset’s Quantock Hills, knows its food inside and out and backwards too.

Owners Lizzie and John are fervent about good food grown simply, locally and well, and their 270-acre site grows, produces and rears top-quality produce of all flavours. Huntstile is also in an area of low light pollution: alfresco suppers and then lying beside the tent and looking up at the stars sounds like a holiday you might like to hunt anywhere…

Guests can help feed the farm pigs, goats and chickens (just ask the staff) and if you ask very nicely, the farm cats and dogs might take you walkies around the footpaths, fields, woodland and farm structures like the 16th-century seed granary (Huntstile has been a farm since at least the 11th century and surrounds a 14th-century farmhouse).

If you prefer to self-guide, pick up a map from the dining room and take a tour around the farm or take one of the walks up to the Quantock Hills starting directly from the farm gate; John and Lizzie can provide maps for other nearby walks to their homemade stone circle and through ancient woodland.

Facilities at Huntstile include a composting toilet in the pitching field; toilets and showers with free hot water a short walk away, and access to a guest fridge with freezer space. Kids can also have a bouncingly good time in summer on the big garden trampoline.

Takeaway breakfast hampers (with milk, bacon, eggs, sausages, fruit etc) are available to buy from the little farm shop. If you're after a drink later in the day, trot to the marquee bar (open Thursday to Sunday evenings), which also houses table football, giant Connect 4 and giant Jenga.

Hi David - thank you for taking the time to leave your review but there are no portaloos here!
All our toilets are mains flushing toilets (its only the 'shell' that looks like a portaloo) - and we also have a heated shower block next the cafe with indoor and outdoor washing up facilities, hairdryer and even a fridge freezer. I hope you can visit us again and use them.

Thank you for leaving your lovely review, its much appreciated - I'm glad you enjoyed our lovely view and the tasty blackberries, they are extra juicy this year!
Sometimes when the wind in coming from the east, you might hear traffic from the North Petherton junction of the M5 (...but the M4 is 71 miles away!)
We look forward to seeing you again down on the farm.

From the manager...

Hi Emma,

Thank you for leaving your review, I'm so glad you enjoyed the views of the countryside around Huntstile Farm.
We are certainly surrounded by and steeped in countryside here - which is a great reason for visiting(!) and I agree it's always handy to have a car when you are staying in the country, for the convenience factor - but I wouldn't say we are necessarily 'remote' as we are less 1.5miles (6 mins in a car, 16 mins on a bike) from the large village of North Petherton with its little Tesco, cafés, pubs and hotels all serving food.
We have a little cafe on site, that opens up every day for breakfast until 10am, plus we do pizza nights on Wednesdays and Friday evenings and delicious lunches on Sundays. I suppose if you were on foot only, you would need to walk or cycle to North Petherton and there are some excellent takeaways that deliver direct to Huntstile Farm.
There is even a direct coach link to & from Hammersmith bus station that goes non-stop all the way to North Petherton, and you can pick up buses there to local sites as well as Exmoor, the country town of Taunton, Bristol (including the airport), Bath, Glastonbury and Wells. I hope this helps for next time :)

Kind regards,
Lizzie

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lovely setting, good choice of pitches ranging from a large field on a hill to a pretty orchard. The children loved helping feed the animals and fetching the egg from the chicken coop. The facilities were great and the breakfast - should you wish to take it at the farm - is scrumptious. The hosts couldn't be more accommodating or helpful. This campsite was recommended by a friend and I understand why..

    Disliked: 

    Quite a lot of slugs around but this is to be expected on an organic farm ;-)

From the manager...

Thank you so much for leaving your lovely review!
Its really heartwarming to receive such nice comments. Last year we didn't have any slugs (honest) so I'm blaming the weather, but you are right that we encourage all sorts of bio-diversity here - and the ducks quite enjoy gobbling them up (eeuw!)
Thank you for coming to stay and I hope that we see you again soon.

Lizzie & all

Local attractions

Huntstile is five miles from Bridgwater, eight from Taunton and about 20 minutes’ drive from the coastline of highly recommended Kilve beach, with the Quantock Hills and Somerset villages along the way.

Ask Lizzie and John for tips or go in whatever direction takes your fancy: northish to the coast, south to Taunton, east and north east to Glastonbury and Cheddar, and west to the Brendon Hills and then Exmoor Forest. Weston-super-Mare, Minehead, Bristol and Cardiff are all within 25 miles.

Around 20 minutes’ drive takes you to Ramscombe, a picnic spot fave of the Huntstile staff, as it has loads of space for running and kicking a ball around, brooks to dam, purpose-built barbecues for lunch (and dinner), and a two-mile Red Walk suitable for most abilities.

Also head for Hestercombe House, overlooking the nearby Blackdown Hills and featured on the BBC’s Gardens Through Time. The formal gardens here were designed by Gertrude Jekyll and Sir Edward Lutyens and have 40 acres of woodland walks, an orangery and a temple.
