Located in the heart of the Mendips, this 1,000 acre farm stretches the length of Cheddar Gorge - the ideal spot for a family holiday in Somerset. You will get a peek into the world of sheep and cattle farming with the Small family who have been a part of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme and Red Tractor accredited for over 20 years. Formerly known as Feather Down Cheddar Gorge, Warren Farm welcomes hundreds of lambs during May before they graze land for the National and Somerset Wildlife Trusts. Its wide-open expanses also welcome film crews – you may have seen Warren Farm in episodes of One Man and His Dog, Casualty and Poldark, to name but a few.
Cheddar Gorge has been voted the second greatest natural wonder in Britain, so try the stunning 60 minutes (subject to ability!) Gorge walk to Cheddar and visit the home of its last cheese producer, Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company. Want a city buzz? Bristol and Bath are just 40 minutes away. If you’re feeling beachy, take a trip to the Weston-super-Mare, a 30-minute drive. Somerset has so much to offer and at Warren Farm you are ideally placed for a family holiday in Somerset.
With its awe-inspiring size, the farm makes a great natural playground but there is also a real one with its slides, swings and sand pits. While the children play, sit outside on the deck chairs with your favourite book or indulge in some bookable hamper options provided by local suppliers. There's a communal barn with table tennis and table football, along with charging points for any essentials. Experience a tractor and trailer ride around the farm where you'll learn more about farm life in the hills (small fee applies, subject to availability during school holidays). Once the sun sets, marshmallows and hot chocolate from the honesty shop make a great evening treat. Share your adventures round the campfire at the day’s end watching the sunset, before retiring to your comfortable bed.
There is electric car charging available at Warren farm.
