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.
