There is a second bedroom leading from the living room with a bunk bed, this is fairly small and is closed off from the living area with a curtain. The child's bedroom has a TV but for use with DVD or Ipod only. Iphone 4 and 5 and iPad chargers. Books and DVDs available for use. Electric blanket in the winter months. Wifi available free of charge. There are sun loungers and cushions available in the cabin so you can relax in the large garden. There is an indoor heated swimming pool (that is on a booking system so it doesn't get crowded) situated next to the site office. There is a bar on site with entertainment most nights at the height of the season. They also have barbecue and theme evenings and live music on occasions. There is access to the beach, which has a lovely waterfall, from the site and is good for walking (dogs accepted all year) and fishing. There is a small children's play area next to the beer garden/cafe There are also laundry facilities on site with two washers and two dryers. There is also a shop selling produce, accessories and gifts. Home Farm is a fairly small but very pretty and friendly site which is pet friendly and is a great place to walk your dogs. There are two walking fields as well as the woods and beach. Also there is great walking with spectacular views all within easy access of the site you are free to use the facilities on site. Dogs are rent free! Up to max of three well behaved dogs! Please note that dogs are not allowed on the furniture. Dog bowls are available to use The cabin is heated by plinth heaters and there are individual heaters for use too. Home Farm is a great base for lovely walks, good food and nearby pubs and fossil finding too! Also the iconic West Country Steam Railway, you can often hear it from the cabin. Various stops in Bishop Lydeard, Dunster and Minehead - a great day out! Check in is from 3pm and check out is 11am on day of departure so we can get the cabin ready for our next guests. More

How to get there
M5 south exit Junction 23 towards Bridgwater on A39. Pick up signs for Minehead carrying on the A39. Keep going through villages such as Holford and Kilve. Once through Kilve about 5 miles you will see a large pub on your left (The Windmill) keep going past there about half a mile, past a garage and cafe on your left. Just past the garage turn right into Doniford Road, drive down there for about 3//4 mile. You will see a black and white house on your right and a sign on the grass (on the left) pointing to Home Farm which will be on your right. Drive down the wooded lane, over the little bridge, bear right and the site office is on your right. They will guide you to the cabin
