Foodies: this is the site for you. Huntstile Organic Farm near 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.
Their 650-acre site grows, produces and rears top quality produce of all flavours – fruit, veg, wheat, pork, duck and chicken – and sells it in its licensed café for all to sample, along with homemade puds, dishes derived from family recipes and freshly sourced local supplies including organic fish, Lyme Bay crab and Cornish oysters. Huntstile is also in an area of low light pollution: gorging oneself on oysters then lying beside the tent and looking up at the stars sounds like a holiday we’d 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 farm’s footpaths, fields, woodland and farm structures like the sixteenth century seed granary (Huntstile has been a farm since at least the eleventh century and surrounds a fourteenth 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 to the Quantock Hills start directly from the farm gate; John and Lizzie can provide maps for other nearby and smashingly scenic walks to their homemade stone circle and through ancient woodland.
Facilities at Huntstile include loos, showers with free hot water and access to a campers’ fridge with freezer space (kids can also have a bouncingly good time in summer on the big garden trampoline). The farm café is in the former stables/dove loft and serves continental breakfast or a full fry-up (book when you arrive) from Tuesdays to Saturdays as well as Sunday lunch and lunches/dinners – and picnics – when requested.
Huntstile is pet-friendly and dogs are welcome.
