Porlock Lodge has availability for the weekends of 15th and 29th October. This is a large luxury safari lodge with ensuite bathrooms, private kitchen, wood burner, far reaching views, fire pit and private hot tub available (optional extra). Some seasonal items will be provided and we're running complimentary farm tours with tractor rides for the last couple of weeks of October.
One of six luxurious safari tents on a family-run organic farm in rural Somerset set across two separate glamping fields. Private bathrooms, private hot tubs and fabulous views towards Exmoor National Park make this a relaxing, rural holiday where you can switch off from busy lives. Children will love the farm animals and the room to roam.
Built and furnished in a way that is more reminiscent of a luxury canvas cottage than a tent, these fantastic safari lodges offer the perfect balance of authentic low-key living and stylish home comforts. Each lodge is cosy yet spacious, with private ensuite bathrooms and a whole host of furniture and facilities. Outside there are private hot tubs and expansive front decks from where you can enjoy lovely views of the rolling Somerset hills. There are two children’s play areas on the farm and regular farm tours too. And nearby there are beaches, walks, country pubs, National Trust estates and opportunities aplenty for outdoor pursuits. Whether you’re here to relax with friends, gather with family or escape with a loved one, the safari lodges at Middle Stone Farm are an idyllic setting for an unforgettable holiday.
The farm sits in the midst of glorious countryside, with Exmoor National Park on one side and the Quantock Hills on the other. If you enjoy walking, cycling and fresh air then you’ve definitely come to the right place, and the area is full of thatched villages, beautiful beaches and National Trust properties like Dunster Castle, Knighthayes Court and Killerton House. Those in search of an adrenalin rush can go kayaking, coasteering, surfing, rock climbing and clay pigeon shooting, and those who would prefer to sit back and relax can visit places like Porlock Weir and Selworthy before sampling the abundant local farmers’ markets, cafes and pubs.
Although the setting is very rural it is in fact only 25 minutes from the M5 and Taunton and 45 minutes from Exeter Airport.

Farm shop on site. Brompton Ralph, 1 mile away, has a village shop and post office
The tent can sleep up to six people and has three bedrooms - a king room, a twin room, and a quirky double cupboard bed which the children will LOVE! There’s a private and spacious bathroom accessed via the king or the twin room. It is divided in two, with a basin and flushing loo on one site, and on the other side a large shower room with a water heating stove. Cooking and heating are via the large wood burning stove in the heart of the tent and lots of firewood is provided. The kitchen is well equipped with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans etc. There’s a small fridge freezer and an electric hob if you want to heat something up quickly without using the wood stove. There’s a large table and chairs with ample space for everyone. The sitting area has comfortable seating for chatting and relaxing. There’s LED lighting and a couple of electrical sockets where you can charge a phone or laptop. Although there’s no WiFi, there’ a good 4G signal on the farm if you need to stay connected.
Each tent has a large fenced deck area with hammock, firepit / BBQ area area, comfy seating, picnic table and a wood fired hot tub. This is one of three safari tents with amazing views onto Exmoor. You can't see the play areas from these lodges so they're lovely for couples glamping, or families with older children. The hot tubs are an optional extra which you can select when booking. They are large hot tubs, perfect for up to six guests. The tents are right on the edge of Exmoor International Dark Sky Reserve so the hot tub is the perfect place to relax and watch the shooting stars on a clear night!
Changeover day is usually Friday, Monday or Wednesday and minimum stay is 2 nights except during the school summer holidays when most people stay for a week. Bedding, towels and kitchen basics are included as well as a generous supply of firewood. Check in is from 4.30pm and check out is 9.30am. This safari tent is not dog or pet friendly, so an ideal choice for guests with allergies. Breakfast hampers, organic meat from the farm and evening meals are available.
