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.
Things to see and do in Somerset

Bath Abbey is an active Christian church situated at the heart of the city. Founded in 1499, it stands on the site of an earlier Norman Cathedral and the original Abbey Church built in the 8th century.

The Jane Austen Centre at 40 Gay Street in Bath is a permanent exhibition which tells the story of Jane's Bath experience - the effect that living here had on her and her writing. Jane Austen is perhaps the best known and best loved of Bath's many famous residents and visitors. She paid two long visits here towards the end of the eighteenth century, and from 1801 to 1806 Bath was her home.
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.
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.
The Royal Crescent is a residential road of 30 houses, laid out in a crescent, in the city of Bath, England. Designed by the architect John Wood the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774, it is among the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom and is a grade I listed building.
