About Tilbury Farm Glamping
Suitable ForGlamping only. Dogs not permitted. No camping.
For walkers and mountain bikers, Tilbury Farm is a boon. The farm has secure bike storage and a hose-down area and can also help arrange bike hire if you haven't brought your own. Some of the best trails in the Quantock Hills are right on your doorstep, taking you east towards Hawkridge Reservoir or north-west towards Wills Neck, the highest summit in the Quantocks and one of the highest points in Somerset. On a clear day it is possible to see Exmoor, the Mendips and Blackdown Hills and even as far as the Brecon Beacons across the Bristol Channel. It's about a 3 mile walk (6 miles there and back) from the farm. If you don't fancy doing the work yourself, pony trekking is available at the neighbouring trekking stables (07595 446252) or hop on a train: The West Somerset Steam Railway (01643-704996) has a station at Bishops Lydeard (10 minute's drive; 3 miles away), where you can take trips out to the coast at Watchet and Minehead. Kilve Beach is the closest (great for fossil hunting and walking), with a good tea room (Chantry Tea Rooms; 01278 741457) on the waterfront.
Food & DrinkA complimentary breakfast hamper is provided on your arrival. This includes a loaf of bread, eggs, bacon, sausages, juice, milk, biscuits and butter (let the owners know of any dietary requirements upon booking). It's a 10-minute walk down the lane to The Rising Sun (01823 432575) a homely, "smart with a heart" country inn, with a slate floor in the bar, hefty wooden beams and a warm but light feel. It has a good local buzz in the bar, while a restaurant, on the other side of a wood panel, has it's own chic character, away from the drinkers. Booking recommended on the weekend (children and dogs welcome, cards accepted).There's a farmshop, a butchers, a small Co-operative and a Post Office in Bishops Lydeard, 3 miles away.
