General

  • Family-friendly glampsite with shepherd's huts in the Quantock Hills
  • Adventurer’s paradise a 20-minute drive from Taunton
  • Stunning views towards Exmoor; horses and e-bikes for hire nearby

Considering a cosy place to stay while on a rambling respite in Somerset…? Take a look at Tilbury Farm, a family-friendly farm glampsite dotted with shepherd’s huts on the edge of West Bagborough village and 20 minutes’ drive from Taunton.

In the Quantock Hills (a former haunt of Coleridge and Wordsworth), this is a paradise for trekkers and adventurers of all kinds. Footpaths and bridleways crisscross the hills, making explores easy for hikers, bikers and riders, with maps and walking guides available on site. The Coleridge Way starts 15 minutes away in Nether Stowey, a trekking business is next door and an e-bike rental company is in the village – plus a secure bike lock-up is at the park for days out of the saddle.

For more of an urban feel, a trip into Taunton comes highly recommended: wander the stalls at the farmer’s market, poke around shops and museums, stop in at Hestercombe House and Gardens for art and architecture, and (for nights away from the oven) grab a table at one of the restaurants...

If that all sounds like far too much effort for the hols, take it easy on site instead. Toddle along to the farm to befriend pigs, ponies and the flock of Exmoor Horns or simply kick back and soak up stunning views over the countryside towards Exmoor National Park, keeping a watchful eye out for the deer, buzzards, bats and owls that might be flitting by.

    Position, friendly host, clean bedding and towels, hammock, hot tub, deer watching and firepit/grill.

    Disliked: 

    I’d love to stay when the essential co vid precautions aren’t needed (although very welcome at the moment!). I felt the final touches of the stay were missing - through no fault of the host. Still very grateful for the opportunity to stay.

Local attractions

Always wanted to canter around in countryside? Horseback tours are to be had from Quantock Trekking a couple of minutes’ drive from this park.

If strolls around stately homes on your own two feet are preferred, the mid-16th-century Cothelstone Manor is five minutes’ drive, while the country house of Fyne Court – now at the centre of a National Trust-protected nature reserve for outdoor explores – is 10 minutes away.

Wander to the Walled Gardens of Cannington (and have a couple of scones at its tea rooms) or take on the trails of Exmoor (both 20 minutes’ drive) for rural roams. If you’re in the national park as darkness falls, make sure to turn your eyes skyward for the spectacular celestial displays in this dark skies reserve.

Other Somerset-specific pursuits to tick off your list include tours and tastings of Sheppy’s Cider (20 minutes), an activity best experienced after trips to seaside towns such as Watchet 25 minutes away and Blue Anchor (half an hour), or lakeside ambles around Wimbleball with its nature paths, cycle trails, archery, windsurfing and kayaking, rather than before...
