Just 4 miles north west of Dulverton and 1.5 mile walk to the beauty spot Tarr Steps; our location makes it easy to explore the many attractions of Devon and Somerset.

We are a FABBL registered working farm of some 270 acres with a herd of beef suckler cows and a flock of breeding ewes, including Exmoor Horn Sheep producing Farm Assured British Beef and Lamb selling to local markets and abattoirs. Some of the farmland borders open moorland, making it easy to reach some of Exmoor’s many footpaths.

We farm within the ESA (Environmentally Sensitive Area) guidelines and have a high regard for conservation.

The only crop grown is “grass” which is grazed as well as being conserved into hay and silage for winter feed. Hedges provide security for livestock as well as shelter and habitat for much wildlife. You may enjoy the beautiful countryside with many wildflowers, much bird-life and a variety of wild animals as you take a walk over the fields and beyond. At certain times of the year it may be possible to take you on a short landrover ride and explain first hand what we are doing with the land and livestock in this part of England.

Glastonbury Abbey
Glastonbury Abbey

The Saxons, who had been converted to Christianity, conquered the ancient county of Somerset in the 7th Century. Their King was Ine of Wessex, who was widely regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of the Abbey. He was a local man who boosted the status and income of the Abbey, and it is said that he put up a stone church, the base of which forms the west end of the nave. This church was enlarged in the 10th century by the Abbot of Glastonbury, St. Dunstan, who became the Archbishop of Canterbury in 960.


Herschel Museum of Astronomy

The Herschel Museum of Astronomy is dedicated to the many achievements of the Herschels, who were distinguished astronomers as well as talented musicians. It was from this house, using a telescope of his own design that William discovered the planet Uranus in 1781. His observations helped to double the known size of the solar system. Following a tradition of the great astronomers of the Renaissance he pushed forward the science of building telescopes. He was rewarded for his work by King George III, and also received the Copley Medal. Caroline also made a huge contribution to the field of astronomy.
