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.

  • 3 bedroom cottage / chalet / bungalow
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The 3 bed cottage was so beautiful and cozy very warm with very comfortable beds.
    The hot tub was a massive bonus for us with the children and also for when they went to sleep.Farm cafe with fresh sourdough bread, take away rolls and coffee was top class. Best bacon ever.We bought some raw honey and cheese for home also.
    The farm walk was really enjoyable unfortunately we didn't get the man's name but the kids loved getting the eggs and feeding the pigs. Lizzie was really a great host and under the current pandemic handled everything perfectly. Our puppy also really enjoyed it and it was really nice to be able to take him with us even on the farm walk. We loved this holiday and will definitely be back. Thank you

Amazing farm experience14/09/2020

  • Non-electric grass pitch (six man)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The whole farm was a lovely remote place to stay with beautiful views. Staying in the orchard was lovely. We also managed to use the little rowing boat on the lake which my toddler loved. But the best thing of all is the experience of feeding the animals at the farm. The Polish man (didn't get his name) was amazing with the kids and even let us into the piglet enclosure. My daughter absolutely loved the experience as well as my partner and I. Special thanks go to him as he made our whole holiday.

From the manager...

Hi Laura,

Thank you for leaving your review, I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay here at Huntstle!

Thank you for highlighting the cold water sink outside the Studio.
There is hot water inside your accommodation and also 2 (hot water) washing up stations located at the shower blocks that are free to use. If you used the outside sink at the studio, then that is cold water only I'm afraid - some guests have boiled the kettle and used a washing up bowl in there which would help.

We have now put a notice on the outside sink explaining where the other washing up stations are, so that everyone will know from now on exactly where everything is.

I hope you can come and stay at Huntstile again soon, we will look forward to seeing you again.

Kind regards,
Lizzie Ridout
