Please note, this property is a 16th-century farmhouse, some traditional features have been retained including some low beams and doorways, and a narrow staircase.

An original, characterful Exmoor oak farmhouse door provides the entrance into the external boot room, ample room for footwear, coats, pushchairs, etc. The front door then opens into the original part of the farmhouse which dates back to the 16th Century. There's an inglenook fireplace at each end of what is now the large kitchen-dining room. A modern kitchen was installed in 2012 and ample crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, and utensils are provided. There is an electric oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer, microwave 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 to a short passage, with a couple of steps, to a light and spacious lounge with a new wood burning stove for cosy nights in. There is comfortable seating for the whole party and an additional table with 4 chairs. A shower room (with toilet and hand basin) and the utility room (with washing machine and tumble dryer) complete the ground floor. The traditional staircase leads upstairs to the five bedrooms; two king-size double bedrooms (one with en-suite), two twin bedrooms and one single; one of the twin bedrooms has 2'6 beds, therefore suitable for children. The family bathroom comprises a bath (with handheld shower attachment), toilet and hand basin. The en-suite shower room has a large walk-in shower, toilet, and hand basin. The whole property was recently re-wired, had a new heating system installed and been redecorated for the 2019 season. Heating, electricity and wifi is included in the price of your accommodation. Starter logs are provided for the wood-burner, additional logs are available onsite. The property comfortably sleeps up to 7 adults and 2 children, plus infant in cot. Stairgate/s and a highchair can also be provided for those staying with young children, please request this on your booking form. Well behaved dogs welcome (2 max) for £15 supplement per dog. Please do not allow your dogs on the furniture or upstairs or leave them unattended.

Middle Stolford Cottage sits within a large private garden, which has been recently re-fenced around the perimeter, in a tranquil sheltered valley, in the middle of Stolford Farms' land. Beyond the garden you will discover winding footpaths, hills, woods and streams without leaving the farm. There are some picnic tables in front of the cottage, for you to enjoy alfresco dining - or relaxing with a good book. A BBQ is also provided for your use, then maybe toast some marshmallows around the fire pit (singing optional!) and on clear nights wait for the spectacular display that the Exmoor night sky has to offer! The farm is accessed by a formal drive with wide verges and standard trees, the owners live in the farmhouse (next door, not attached) and there is another holiday cottage nearby, The Cowshed, which sleeps 2 guests. A full-size tennis court is available for all guests to use. If you would like to bring your own horse there are seven fabulous boxes in a modern stable block which can be rented on a DIY basis, with straw and hay provided and grazing on request. Stables are charged at £15 per night. Please contact us for details.
