Camping and self-catering cottages in a beautifully secluded valley site in the centre of Exmoor National Park.
Westermill Farm is tucked away at the end of a private valley, deep in the rugged heart of the Exmoor National Park. Camp in 14 acres of mown, secluded fields with no set pitches and the freedom to park your vehicle right next to your tent. Have a campfire and cook local sausages or burgers or simply toast marshmallows on a stick.
The 500-acre working hill farm is located in the heart of the International Dark Sky Reserve, which means you are perfectly located for some excellent stargazing; you just need to look up on a clear night!
Come and see how an Exmoor hill farm works. We have cattle, sheep, hens, geese and working sheep dogs! There are walks around the farm with an abundance of wildlife and a haven for birds and wild flowers. After a long days walking, enjoy a piping hot shower. Our family shower rooms and large drying room are perfect for a comfortable camping experience. The hot water is provided by our eco-friendly wood-chip biomass boiler using wood grown on the farm.
Westermill makes an ideal base for exploring the open moorland, wooded valleys and spectacular coastal scenery or just simply for relaxing and escaping the hum drum of everyday life. Visitors can enjoy the peace and serenity of the farm as Westermill does not border any roads. You can walk directly from your door onto the farm walks and beyond – no need to drive your car. It is a child’s paradise – playing in the river, fishing with nets, making dams and lots of exploring to do.
Our five Scandinavian style cottages stand in small grass paddocks. The cottages provide delightful and comfortable accommodation for families of up to 8 people. They are well equipped with cosy wood burners and full central heating. Hot water is provided by our eco-friendly biomass boiler using wood grown on the farm. The cottages also include colour tv’s, upstairs and downstairs bathrooms (for the two storey cottages), fully fitted kitchens and verandahs (dependant on cottage).
We accept well behaved dogs and have grazing for horses (please bring your own electric fencing to corral).
