Harton Farm Bed & Breakfast

Location and atmosphere

Harton is a stone-built 17th-century cottage-style farmhouse with a slate roof. It is situated just south of Exmoor National Park. There is 53 acres of land. Fields are separated by hedgerows. On the farm are sheep, pigs, goats, chicken, a Jersey house-cow, dogs and cats. In front of the house is a flower garden. Biological gardens and orchards are at the backside of the building. In winter Robin and Lindy make home-spun wool from fleeces. Some of it is dyed using naturally occurring dyes. They possess the Green Tourism Gold Award. 


This Bed & Breakfast has one twin-bedded room and one family suite for four people, consisting of a double-bedded room with adjoining twin-bedded children's room. The main bedrooms have washbasins and tea-trays, the fully equipped bathroom has a view. Guests may use the sitting room and dining room (no smoking). A full English breakfast starts the day, and a three course evening meal plus coffee is served at 7.30pm. Vegetarians are happily catered for. Meat is from the own livestock and vegetables from the own garden or locally sourced. Children can help on the farm, like feeding the lambs. Children between the age of 4 and 12 pay half.

Surroundings and activities

North of Oakford starts Exmoor National Park, a huge sandstone plateau split by deep coombes and wooded valleys. Wild Exmoor ponies still graze here side by side with red deer. The park is home to a variety of bird life, such as grey wagtails, kestrels, buzzards and ring ouzels. Old, pretty villages dot the park, such as Dunster and Selworthy, a favourite of postcard and calendar photographers. Worth visiting is the castle, the Church of St. George and the Watermill (1086). Most romantic valley without doubt is Badgeworthy Water.
