This is the larger of the two rentals available at Stolford Farm. A large traditional farmhouse sitting in its own private garden, Middle Stolford is located in the centre of an idyllic sheltered valley with breathtaking views across farmland. On the highpoints of the land there are views across the Vale of Taunton, Blackdown Hills, Quantock Hills and Clatworthy Reservoir.
Entry to the property is through an original Exmoor oak farmhouse door to an external boot room. A place to kick off those muddy boots and hang coats after exploring the local countryside. This leads into the original part of the farmhouse dating to the 16th Century. Although a new modern kitchen was installed in 2012, there are two inglenook fireplaces each end of what is now a single large kitchen and dining room. There is a large rustic table for seating eight guests. There is also an additional breakfast bar for seating two people.
Ample crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, utensils and a microwave are provided suitable for a comfortable stay for eight guests. There is also a fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. Mind your head on the beams and take time to admire the traditional construction of the kitchen walls and ceiling timbers.
The kitchen dining room leads on via a short passage to a light and spacious lounge with a new wood burning stove for a cosy night in. There is comfortable seating for the whole party. A bathroom with shower and a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer complete the ground floor.
Middle Stolford has TV and free Wi-Fi and has been redecorated for the 2018/19 season. Outside there is ample parking for three cars, and a dog proof garden.
The whole property was recently rewired, and a new heating system installed. Upstairs are five bedrooms, and two further bathrooms, one of which is en-suite to the master bedroom. All the bathrooms are fitted with showers, whilst the family bathroom has a generous sized bath. Guests might have a debate about which is the master bedroom, because the one on the eastern edge of the property is equally large. Two of the bedrooms have king size beds with luxurious linen, the third bedroom has twin beds, whilst bedroom 4 and 5 are furnished with single beds. The property comfortably sleeps eight people, and well-behaved dogs are welcome. We can also arrange for a cot, stairgates and highchair for those staying with young children.
Our guests at Middle Stolford have use of outdoor furniture in their own garden but are also invited to use the large communal garden with a barbecue hut and firepit. Mingle with our guests from The Cowshed, our one-bedroom cottage, and watch the sunset whilst toasting marshmallow on the fire. On clear nights enjoy the spectacular display that the Exmoor night sky has to offer in this tranquil location. Children can scramble on the play equipment at the back of the main farmhouse and all guests are welcome to use our full-size tennis court.
If you would like to bring your own horse we can offer you one of our 7 boxes in our recently constructed stable block. All boxes have poured rubber coverings and we have a lockable tack room and central covered courtyard for washing down. Hay and straw are provided. Find out more about our horse riding holidays.
Stolford Farm can also provide homecooked meals, delivered straight to your fridge, ready to heat and serve, for when you arrive back at Middle Stolford exhausted from all the fresh air and exercise. For a real treat, why not book our local beauty therapist for individual or group treatments. Ask us for more information.
