Go past the Merry Monk on your right, take the next left, called Meadway, a brown daisy tourist signpost reads Hestercombe Gardens. We're now only 2 miles away. Follow Meadway until a cross roads, go straight across - a white signpost directs you towards Broomfield. Follow the road up the hill to another cross roads, go straight across - signpost directs you toward Broomfield. Continue up the hill, the road levels off, then goes over another little brow - see a triangle of grass on your left with five large oak trees. Take the left, Somerset Yurts is on the left just before you reach the Farm.

Local attractions

Hestercombe Gardens are a short walk away across the fields from the yurt site and offer an amazing collection of three gardens spanning three centuries of garden history and design.

Fyne Court is a nature reserve leased by the Somerset Wildlife Trust and is the headquarters for the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s ideal for walks and discovering a wide variety of habitats.

West Somerset Railway is a country branch line of the old Great Western Railway offering a nostalgic ride back in time around the gentle, rolling Quantock hills.

Exmoor National Park is truly one of Britain’s most breathtaking places. Wild landscapes meet soothing tranquillity, and you may even catch a glimpse of wild Red Deer or a native Exmoor Pony.

The North Somerset Coast has something for everyone. From picturesque towns and quaint harbours, to bustling marinas and busy seaside resorts all situated along a stunning stretch of coastline.

Gone are the days when every farm made its own special cider, but down in the Vale of Taunton Deane in Somerset’s very own Cider County, you’ll find one of the true Farmer Cider makers: Sheppy's of Bradford-on-Tone.

Found down the hill in the local village, just a stone's throw from the farm, The Monkton is warm and welcoming, offering fresh home cooking using local produce, at sensible prices. The Monkton is a popular place to eat and you'll usually need to book in advance.
