Higher Roddon Farm

Luxury Rural Accommodation and Grass-fed Beef and Lamb

We have two couple’s shepherds’ huts with (what we believe to be) the best views in Somerset! We are a small working hill farm so there is plenty to see although with those views come some good hills so your thighs will see plenty of work whilst you are here! We are dog friendly although with lots of lambs and sheep around we do ask that you are respectful with your dogs and do keep an eye on the billy goat – he can sometimes be quite protective of his ladies!

Our shepherds’ huts have constant hot water, proper showers and flushing loos. The kitchen area has an electric fridge and hob. There is a wood burning stove and a very comfortable double bed – with those outstanding views over Exmoor and the Brendon hills.

We follow a grass-fed, low input, regenerative agriculture philosophy. All of our lambs are born on the farm and stay with their mothers as long as possible growing well on their mothers’ milk and our beautiful grass. All of our animals are only fed grass from the farm or hay in winter. We believe this is more sustainable, gives us a minimal carbon footprint and provides our animals with the best possible lives. Our lamb therefore is meatier and tastes fantastic with a
marbled layer of fat that adds richness to your cooking.
Available: from April
Cuts Available: Half lamb boxes, leg and
shoulder (half or whole), rack, chops and mince

Without losing the traditional ways of farming on the Exmoor Hills, David and Sue worked hard to perfect their favourite flavours using only the best natural ingredients and creating the most flavoursome ice creams that we have come to know and love as Styles Luxury Farmhouse Ice Cream.

Exmoor Blueberries and Camping

Blueberries and Camping

The Keily family planted their thousands of blueberries back in 2006, after realising that the wild ‘wortleberries’ that used to grow in abundance on the moor, were cousins of the blueberry. The farm is at high altitude, near Dunkery Beacon, and the soil is the perfect ph level for these yummy plants. This, combined with the freshest air and purest water, makes our blueberries truly special.

​Believing in a natural approach, the plants have been left to their own devices, cross pollinating across the nine plant varieties using bumblebees and butterflies, and the fields are home to all sorts of wildlife which have helped them thrive. All you need to do is come and enjoy it!

As well as blueberry picking (PYO), we offer a ‘wild’ camping experience so you can enjoy our corner of the natural world including the most beautiful clear stars! We’re located in the centre of the International Dark Sky Reserve under som eof the darkest skies in the country – it’s a great location for stargazing.
