    Do visit Wells and the Cathedral and take advantage of the tour. Market day is Saturday and Wednesday. Great market. Castle Cary and Somerton are lovely market towns worth a wander around. Take advantage of all the walks the hosts suggest because they are beautiful ...do take wellingtons! There is Glastonbury, Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge but we didn't have enough time on this occasion! This is a great secluded location with only one cabin on site either sleeping six or four which the website doesn't make clear...this is a fantastic selling point! The honesty shop was very basic...milk, eggs, juice...not that this is a negative as understandably catering a shop for one cabin is difficult! A suggestion might be to offer a variety of food hampers that could be purchased on booking containing essentials and perhaps deluxe items? However the hosts did offer to purchase any food we needed, the meat purchased for us from a local butchers was super! Including marshmellows for the fire pit! The hosts were so friendly and accommodating - thank you so much Edward and Liz!

    Mrs Bird - From Mon 21 Aug

    i would say that guests need more info on bringing young children. We expected there to be LED lighting rather than naked flames and also a guard around the woodburning stove. This was a real problem for us with two children aged 3 and 6. As the holiday is showcased as a family break, I think it would be good for these factors to thought through more carefully or to warn parents first. This was the only downside to the break, the rest was fab and certainly recommend to families with children aged 5 and above who can follow instructions! i would recommend Dunster Beach just a couple of miles from the site, super quiet and lovely beach when the tide is in - often times you will have a whole section of beach to yourselves!

    Mrs Hayhurst - From Mon 29 May

    We went to Wookey Hole on the Monday before we checked in at the farm later that day and honestly I wouldn't bother. The caves were good but the rest of the attraction is tired and tacky. Cheddar Gorge caves would be a much better choice. Weston Super Mare was surprising good and the beach is huge, with lots of donkeys to ride, trampolines and rides for the kids and loads of kiosks to buy buckets and spades. Puxton Park Farm is well worth a visit and really good value. Our daughter is 6 and there was loads for her to do there and not expensive either. If you go to Cheddar Gorge village, go to the Lions Head Tea Room. Fab sandwiches and the best scone cream tea I think I've ever had.

    If you are good walkers, the the gorge walk to Cheddar and back is fantastic. Allow most of the day for the walk. We went to the right of the gorge on the way to Cheddar and came back on the other side. There are some steep climbs so be prepared with cold drinks on a hot day!Kate and James provide information sheets for walks straight from the farm site. These are well worth exploring.

    Mr. Casse - From Fri 21 Oct

    Cheddar Gorge experiences and caves (the new Cox's Cave experience is great!). We have done it several time now and the boys never get board of the caves plus the crazy golf halfway down on the right behind the small run of shops is one of the best. Did Stone Henge this time and it was well worth the drive. Just fun around the campsite including pizza night and camp fires. Practical one - take a flask. Boil the kettle on the dying burner before bed and then you can have a hot cup of coffee in the morning whilst you light the stove.

    Mr. Taylor - From Fri 30 Sep

    Fleet Air Arm Museum was awesome for our three boys - we've driven past it hundreds of times and never visited, but it's really well thought through, super exhibits (Spitfire, Wright Brothers Model, Concorde) and very informative for all ages.

    Mr. Standley - From Fri 16 Sep

    Great local pub a very tame walk away from the site and a great location to explore the Jurassic coast of the South of England. Take a gas hob as the new wood burners are great for heating but not so good for cooking on and consume a vast amount of logs to maintain cooking temp.

  • 10
    Mr. Barnfield - From Tue 30 Aug

    If you have children, consider renting your own private Chicken Coup...the kids will love feeding them and you just can't beat fresh eggs in the morning.You just have to try the walk to Cheddar but allow a good 90mins each way and it probably isn't for a family with pushchairs as the final descent into Cheddar is a little robust! However the great views made this well worth doing. James provides excellent maps and instructions so you won't get lost. There is a easier route which cuts out the climb and descent though but does involve walking on the winding road into Cheddar...just be careful!Don't miss the Farm Tour, as it both educational and entertaining.

    Extra lighting is very useful. We also took a little camping stove to make a quick coffee in the mornings because the woodburner takes a while to get up to cooking temperature.

    Wooky Hole was good fun, but a bit pricey. Wells is a lovely day out. The market on a Saturday is really good for cheeses, bread, pies etc. The cathedral is amazing and has free entry. The walk around the moat is nice and on a Sunday afternoon in the summer there is often a band playing in the park.

    We didn't stray too far from the farm itself. There was the play area and other children for our daughter to play with...and she took the advantage to go 'free range'. Walks in the vicinity of the farm were plentiful. The walk to the trig point is further than you think....allow 4 hours for the return trip. We visited Cheddar Gorge but didn't pay to go in the caves. The drive down was pretty spectacular. Park at the Riverside Inn and have a drink and you will avoid paying the £5 parking fee if you are just happy to potter and watch sweets or cheese being made. Went to South Brean on our way back...fairly grey and windy weather put us off the climb up the cliff....but the potential was there. We guess this is what you could see on a clear day from Warren Farm.

    Torches are a must for toilet trips and although th tent is romantically lit with candles and oil lamps a torch or three would be a life saverMake use of the camp fire and all the facilities and book your stay for as long as possible!!!The walks around are lovely. The 'velvet bottom' area nearby is beautiful and if you want to walk to cheddar and back allow a lot of time for admiring the view and catching your breath!

    Cheddar gorge sweet making shop (free) and cheese factory (small fee) was very interesting and kids loved it. Wells is a lovely small town for a visit and without saying the caves and gorge must be seen if you havent already been there, however, use tesco clubcard vouchers if you can as its pricey.

    Cheddar Gorge and the caves are only a few minutes drive and are excellent and interesting, if a little busy in the summer, but not prohibitively so. The Cheddar Cheese Factory is worth a look and the cheese is amazing - we particularly liked the Cave Aged and Blue Veined Cheddar. There is a lot to do locally, we visited Noah's Ark Farm Park & Zoo up towards Bristol, a really lovely little zoo, with happy animals in big enclosures.

We finished our holiday with a visit to Glastonbury, lovely lunch in the blue note cafe, (very tastly vegetarian cafe even, if like us, your not) and a very chilled out atmosphere!!

    Blackmoor Nature Reserve walk is lovely, though think it is more like 90 minutes at best. Cheddar Gorge walk is more demanding but a must, and recommend you take the route published on the laminated sheets in the honesty shop, but come back via the road through the gorge (take care). Loved the retro feel of the Lion Rock Tea Room in the gorge, though service could have been a bit better.

    Our hosts had some laminated local walks which we did to explore the local area. It was so beautiful and much of it was on the farm's own land. Cheddar was very close by so we cashed up some Tesco clubcard points in exchange for day tickets to see the Cheddar caves, climb the tower and take an open bus tour. It was a great way to spend an afternoon. The farmers own tour of the farm, followed by pizza night was great fun and very interesting for the whole family.
