Here’s what some recent guests have said about us…



  • Mr and Mrs H - December 2020

    We’ve had a brilliant break in your fantastic Victorian Wing – our spaniel has never had so many pheasants to sniff and dream about! This stay has been just the tonic we needed, we will be back and will enthusiastically recommend you to friends and family – you have a super bolthole here. Very many thanks.

  • Mr and Mrs T + Bertie - October 2020

    We have enjoyed the most wonderful week staying in this lovely cottage – a real home from home in a really beautiful setting. Our first time holidaying in Exmoor and with so much to see and do, we shall have to return. We enjoyed many picturesque walks and two delicious dinners at Woods in Dulverton. Thank you for a very warm welcome, and delicious scones and fizz!

  • Mrs A (Germany) - September 2020

    We had a great week in your beautiful house. Thank you for the warm welcome and the welcome in the kitchen. Exmoor is beautiful, we have seen a lot and made great walks. One week is much too short, we would have liked to stay longer. Many greetings!

  • The S Family - September 2020

    We’ve had a lovely stay here. The cottage is spacious, yet cosy, with everything you could need. Thanks for making us so welcome and for the amazing welcome pack. Enjoyed visits to Tarr Steps, Porlock Weir, Valley of the Rocks and Dunkery Beacon.

  • The O'R Family - August 2020

    Thank you all for being so welcoming to us all. The cottage has been just ideal – cosy, clean, comfy and the sweeping views as you walk out the door have been everything we’ve dreamed of during lockdown in London. Thank you especially for being so kind and generous to the children – they’ve had a holiday they’ll never forget and are already chatting about returning and even living in Exmoor when they grown up! We highly recommend Pine Lodge for horse riding for anyone with children – the girls at the stables were great teachers and was a magical experience.

  • The B Family + Rosco - August 2020

    How delighted were we when we arrived and found this beautiful, clean, comfy cottage in marvellous countryside! Thank you for the gluten free scones and flowers/wine. A lovely touch! I especially appreciated the book selection which is uncannily matched to my own tastes! Many thanks. We’ll recommend you to friends!

  • The P Family - July 2020

    Thank you so much for another wonderful stay. Everything was perfect, from the homemade scones on arrival (lovely, Esme!) to the beautiful cottage, but especially the adorable Sid and Dottie. We will miss their happy greetings on our return from exploring Exmoor each day, and joining us for our morning coffee in the orchard garden. Hope to come back soon. Thanks again.

  • Mr and Mrs G + Sally - July 2020

    What a splendid and beautiful spot. We had the most tranquil and relaxing time. The cottage was so comfy and wish we could have stayed longer. Esme’s scones were memorable! Thank you so much for your care and hospitality.

  • Mr and Mrs S + Bertie - March 2020

    Thank you, Ali and Jeff, for a most relaxing week at Stockham Farm. It has been a joy to return to the haven and warmth of our bit of the farm every evening, having battled with all weathers during our walks with Bertie. Very best wishes to you both.

  • The S Family - February 2020

    We spent a long weekend in February with our kids to get away from it all and so some walking in the countryside. The cottage was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, with a massive wood burner and big smart TV for cozy evenings on the sofa. There were also loads of books and board games so you’d struggle to get bored. We were welcomed by Jeff and Ali with a bottle of Prosecco and some of his homemade scones with clotted cream and jam which lasted all of 5 minutes! Highly recommended!

  • Miss C - January 2020

    Beautiful home, comfy bed, spotlessly clean, fantastic location. Our personal highlights were walking up to Dunkery Beacon (for the sunset views) and dinner at Woods in Dulverton… both amazing!

  • The C-J Family - Christmas 2019

    An extremely memorable Christmas on Exmoor! Climbing Dunkery Beacon under clear blue skies in glorious sunshine after weeks and weeks of rain was the best Christmas Day ever. Thank you for all your help, hospitality and warm welcome.

  • Mr and Mrs J - September 2019

    What a find! Absolutely perfect cottage for a relaxing break – so comfortable with everything we needed. We felt totally at home here. Thanks for all those touches that made it stress-free – tea, coffee and basic cooking ingredients provided, loo roll and soap – might sound silly but it made such a difference! Loved it and hope to return.

  • Miss J (Japan) - August 2019

    A fabulous place to stay – a wonderfully organised house in a perfect setting. The scones and bubbly were a lovely treat and we will be recommending to friends and family. Many thanks.

  • Mr and Mrs G + Ted - August 2019

    What a hidden gem! Away from the hustle and bustle…. We love it! Great walks in the beautiful countryside. This is our second visit, and hopefully we will be back for a third!

  • The S Family - July 2019

    We had a wonderful weekend in this idyllic place! The cottage is charming and the location couldn’t be any better. We thoroughly enjoyed the walks and spectacular views, the girls loved meeting the resident horses and their encounters with Sid the puppy! A delicious Sunday lunch at Woods in Dulverton – not to be missed, great food and great wine list. Thank you Ali and Jeff for your friendly hospitality – Stockham Farm is a truly special place.

  • Mr and Mrs B + Bertie - May 2019

    We don’t think we’ll ever find a lovelier holiday cottage than here at Stockham Farm: beauty and tranquility, stunning views and lovely hosts – thank you Ali and Jeff for sharing your wonderful home in this way. We hope very much to return this year.

  • The M Family - April 2019

    Thank you for a wonderful week. We’ve had a superb, relaxing holiday and F (son, aged 6) has really enjoyed Sid’s, and also your company. Our favourite places to visit were the sunny walk from Marsh Bridge near Dulverton along the river, Dunster Castle & Hill, Knightshayes and fossil hunting on Watchet beach. F’s really loved staying here, scootering at speed down the road, the enchanting stream in the garden, Easter trails for Sid (and everyone else). A truly wonderful holiday in a perfect location.

  • Mr and Mrs W + Alfie - March 2019

    A lovely place to stay. Evenings in front of a cosy log fire and star gazing in the deck chairs on beautiful clear nights. Thanks for making us so welcome.

  • Mr and Mrs PB - December 2020

    What a warm and welcoming place (scones, fizz etc) and all clean, tidy and well provided for. Just so nice when you arrive after a long car journey – or anytime! And what a wonderful position and view – so incredibly restorative – thank you, thank you!

  • Miss L and Miss H - October 2020

    Thank you for making our stay away from home so comfortable. We have had a lovely time exploring the countryside and the local town, and chasing sunsets amongst the sheep. You have a charming cottage. Homemade scones and fizz most welcome also. Big thanks!

  • Mr and Mrs T and friends - October 2020

    We have all had a great time here at The Piggery. It has been warm, comfortable and cosy throughout. The kitchen is well resourced and everything supplied has made for a really relaxing time. For country-lovers is was lovely to see all the natural beauty of the area and we were pleased to hear the constant ‘bolving’ of the rutting stags!! As a special note we would thoroughly recommend the evening meal at Woods in Dulverton. Superb food! Thank you so much Ali and Jeff.

  • Mr and Mrs L - October 2020

    Splendid views, pleasant walks, comfortable beds. Very enjoyable holiday. The scones and Prosecco were much appreciated!

  • The P Family + Keeper & Hattie - July 2020

    A wonderful stay as usual and such a treat to be able to bring the dogs, given the nature of the lovely accommodation with all its facilities. Our highlights included trips to Dulverton, BBQs, stag spotting walks, sunny breakfasts sat outside, Dottie, Sid and relaxing by the fire in the evenings. We are already looking forward to next year’s stay!

  • Miss V and Mr N + Tarka - July 2020

    Such a wonderful stay at the Piggery – from the scones on welcome to the goodbye from Sid and Dottie. Thank you for taking the time to walk us to the ‘trig point’ where we were lucky enough to see the stags! So impressed with Dulverton, such a quaint town with a great selection.

  • Mr and Mrs S + Tilly - March 2020

    Such a beautiful cottage and location, we have loved every minute, even in the pouring rain! Dulverton is such a pleasant little town with everything needed in supply. Can recommend Woods, had fabulous food there, and very coy in the Bridge Inn, dogs are made very welcome. Haddon Hill is stunning for walking and Winsford is a great little village. This area is so lovely it doesn’t matter where you go!! Many thanks for making us so welcome.

  • The G Family - February 2020

  • Mr and Mrs L - November 2019

    Thank you for such a fantastic stay! We loved exploring the local area, taking big long walks, pub visits and then curling up in front of the fire.

  • The L Family - October 2019

    Couldn’t have asked for better! The cottage has a homely feel, which makes you settle in from the off. Very generous to leave scones and Prosecco. Dulverton was friendly, quaint and had everything we needed. Thanks to Jeff and Ali, we’ve had a relaxing stay!

  • The M Family - September 2019

    A perfect setting for our stay in the stylish and comfortable Piggery. We enjoyed all the personal touches and the welcome from humans and animals alike! Hope to visit again one day.

  • Miss S and Friends - August 2019

    We have had a very lovely and very relaxing stay at the Piggery! When we arrived we were welcomed by Jeff and Sid! The Piggery was super clean and tidy with amazing views of the farm. We are trying to get another holiday booked here already.

  • Miss M and Friends - August 2019

    We have had such a wonderful stay at the Piggery. It’s so cosy and wonderfully clean! The perfect setting for a relaxing girly holiday. The welcome scones – delicious!

    Thank you both for such a wonderful couple of days! The Piggery is lovely, finished so well and we loved the final touches – including the delicious scones!

    We’ve enjoyed every day of our holiday. Exmoor is the most beautiful place to be and the cottage is absolutely stunning. The views are amazing, the rooms are spacious and you’re the most friendly hosts. Thanks a lot for your hospitality and hope to come back in the future.
