STOCKHAM FARM

Overview

A Horses Welcome Establishment

Stockham Farm offers two luxury self-catering holiday cottages (sleeping 6 and 4), stabling and turnout for up to five visiting horses in the heart of the Exmoor National Park. We provide hay and straw for stabled horses and any other feed or bedding can be catered for at additional cost.

For the horses

We have new purpose-built stabling/loose boxes for 3 horses (14x10) and 2 for smaller horses (10x10), all housed within a courtyard of old stone farm buildings; a fenced stable yard with water and warm wash off facilities, a secure tack room, fenced paddocks including one with a large field shelter, plenty of room for box and trailer parking, easy direct access to bridle paths to reach many miles of riding across Exmoor National Park with almost no roadwork required - recommended routes offered, if required.

For people

Luxury self-catering in two unique properties with sensational views over the Exe Valley - the self-contained Victorian wing of the farmhouse sleeps 4 (in two bedrooms and one bathroom) and the Piggery sleeps 6 (in three bedrooms and two bathrooms). All rooms are twin/king size. Both properties offer wood burning stoves, underfloor heating, excellent wifi, dishwashers/washing machines and have been refurbished to an extremely high standard in 2018. We have received 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor and on our own website.

Riding opportunities

Stockham Farm is situated within Exmoor National Park and we have direct access from the farm to bridle paths that lead, via fields and tracks, to moorland, wooded valleys and riverside paths with almost no roadwork required at all. The farm is in proximity to 13 different hunts - some with meets within hacking distance. The Endurance GB Golden Horseshoe Ride passes within half a mile of the farm. The Treborough British Eventing XC course is 20 minutes' journey away in a box.

Directions

The farm is situated 1.5 miles from the small town of Dulverton, but with a box or trailer it is necessary to access the property via Chilly Bridge (3 miles north of Exebridge or 1 mile south of Bridgetown) on the A396. You will see a small cream-coloured cottage on the west side of the A396, adjacent to a lane with a small hump-backed bridge over the River Exe. Take this lane, go over the bridge and bear immediately left. Go up the hill and about half a mile around a sharp left hand bend (your Sat Nav will tell you to turn right to Halscombe Farm, but ignore it!) After a further half a mile, you will see an entrance to Stockham Farm on your left with a driveway down. Pull up on the lane and we will come and find you and tell you where best to park in the yard etc. Regrettably, the lane to the farm is not suitable for long wheel based horse lorries or those over 10 tonnes.
