Farthingwood Barn comfortably sleeps six guests and is one of two holiday homes located in the grounds of North Wheddon Farm in the Exmoor National Park. Eden Lodge is the second holiday home located at the farm which sleeps up to three guests and both properties can be rented together to accommodate larger parties of nine.
North Wheddon Farm provides a perfect base from which to explore Exmoor, Somerset and also Devon, along with their many attractions including fantastic beaches, beautiful scenery and pretty towns and villages such as Dunster, Lynton, Minehead and Porlock - all just minutes away from the farm.
Sitting in the pretty village of Wheddon Cross, North Wheddon Farm affords a wonderful peaceful setting with rural views all around. The grounds are very picturesque with a waterfall and stream running through - a place where you can escape the hustle and bustle of modern living and enjoy a peaceful holiday or short break.
Exmoor National Park is a vast outdoor playground offering superb opportunities for those who enjoy walking, and North Wheddon Farm cottages are well placed for enjoying the many delights of the area. Dunkery Beacon with its challenging summits (National Trust managed) is close by and is the national parks most elevated point, providing wonderful views that encompass Somerset, Devon and even Wales on a good day. Brendon Hills are also exceptionally picturesque and a true hidden gem tucked away from the crowds.
With friendly farm animals, ducks, chickens and plenty of wildlife to see, this is a superb holiday destination for walkers, wildlife lovers and those wanting to experience country living and a farm holiday.
