Weatherham Farm, Self Catering on Exmoor
Weatherham Farm sits in 17 acres of private grounds within the Exmoor National Park with stunning views across the Exe Valley. The peaceful setting is a haven for birds and wildlife – owls, buzzards, finches, our nosy robins, swallows nesting in the barns and murmurations of starlings. You may see stoats and weasels and red deer too.
Our friendly farm animals make a great distraction for the kids!
We currently have Rare Breed Grey Faced Dartmoors, Devon Close Wools, Lleyns and some gorgeous “Heinz”. We lamb in April so it’s always an exciting month.
Our funny, inquisitive Cuckoo Marans, Goldies and Light Sussex Hens are completely free range and enjoy a diet of corn, worms, bugs and on special occasions, rice pudding, custard or porridge, resulting in the most delicious, luminous yellow yolk eggs. When “in lay” you are welcome to enjoy the freshest eggs possible.
We have two male pygmy Goats who will be your best friends if you are kind enough enough to donate some of your toast or digestive biscuits!
We have a dedicated field kept for your enjoyment, providing plenty of space for games (you’ll find a selection provided), a BBQ, sitting reading, watching the animals, enjoying the birdlife or simply taking in the awesome views.
Situated on the boundary of Somerset with Devon, with the coast only 14 miles away and Wimbleball Lake, with its fishing and watersports facilities, just 3 miles down the road, we are perfectly located to explore everything Exmoor has to offer. We are pet and child friendly – your dogs will love the walking on Exmoor and your children can interact to their hearts content with our animals.
We are a 20 minute walk or short drive from Brompton Regis with its community run shop and friendly village pub, “The George”, serving West Country ales, ciders and food. We are 4 miles from Dulverton which oozes charm and delightful award winning pubs and tearooms, all serving delicious local fare.
We can’t promise you sunshine but we can promise you a relaxed unhurried retreat from the busy world in the most breath taking surroundings.
