Glamping Somerset

Glamping at Lower Rodhuish Farm, Minehead, Somerset with Featherdown Farms. This location on Exmoor is pure picture postcard. Lower Rodhuish is uniquely set in a national park and it’s only a 10-minute drive down country lanes to Blue Anchor Bay’s pebble beach.  Paul is the third generation of the Thomas family to farm here since his grandfather took over Lower Rodhuish in 1929. Lower Rodhuish is half in the Crown Estate and half family owned. Both Paul and Charlotte are passionate about biodiversity on their farm and were particularly pleased when an RSPB survey revealed that there are 52 species here, including barn owls, yellowhammers and linnets.

The 850 acres are part arable and part livestock, with 150 lambing sheep and 50 Devon Cross cattle. In 2015, there will be 300 new lambs and 40 calves. Paul and Charlotte also keep pigs, chickens, turkeys, have beehives, and grow wheat, oats, barley, peas and beans, all of which you’ll be able to see on the farm tour. Apple pressing is another activity happening at Lower Rodhuish. The six tents are spread across two cosy paddocks behind the 17th-century farmhouse. Unfortunately, pets cannot be accommodated as the tents are located close to the sheep. But you can meet and groom the ponies here as an extra. Climb a few minutes further back up the slopes and you’re in a paradise for child’s play, with kite flying and pond dipping all possible on your tent’s doorstep. You can picnic in a grassy hollow up there whilst enjoying marvellous views out across the sea to Wales and the islands of Flat Holm and Steep Holm.

This is the perfect base for reliving childhood memories of West Somerset holidays, with Porlock Bay, Dunster Castle, Watchet Harbour, Tarr Steps and the West Somerset Railway all on your doorstep. Watchet Festival is a family friendly music festival with amazing views of the stunning West Somerset coastline and beyond. It is held on the end-of-August Bank Holiday weekend and features 3 stages with over 50 live acts. A wide range of high calibre musical acts not normally found performing in West Somerset, play for an affordable entrance price. (Under 12’s go free!) Please note, although the festival is 5 miles away from the farm it can be quite loud if the wind is blowing in this direction.
