Welcome to Holworthy Farm
Welcome to Holworthy Farm a 200-acre livestock farm on the banks of Wimbleball Lake, situated in the heart of Somerset This peaceful valley was flooded in 1977 to create one of the most scenic reservoirs ever. Idyllic for walking, fishing, water sports, exploring nature trails and the pretty villages and escape from the pressures of life.
The Parish is called Brompton Regis or King's Brompton as it was known because the manor belonged to the King in the Doomsday times.The history of a settlement here goes back to the Saxon times,when it was called Brunetone- meaning brown settlement,referring to the heath covered Brendon Hills.
The farm is in the Exmoor National Park which is the first International Dark Skies Reserve, and surrounded by unspoilt beautiful countryside.
Guests may come and go as they please and if I am around there is always a complimentary tray of tea or coffee and homemade biscuits available.
Dinner is optional but needs to be ordered the night before. All meals are freshly prepared with home grown vegetables when available and the homemade desserts are complimented with clotted cream. Tea, coffee and mints are served afterwards in the cosy sitting room with the wood burner roaring in winter and in the sun-lounge or garden in summer. If guests have special diets please let me know in advance. Guests are welcome to bring wine or spirits to the table.
