Dog Friendly Cottages…

Kindly, they also brought their owners and the rest of their family, and so far so good – everyone has had a good time at Middlewick. Springfield, Pippin, the Annex, Tor View, Cabin and our E-dens are our dog friendly cottages.
Enjoying Somerset’s Finest Foods in our Farm Shop
Part of the pleasure of a stay in an area such as this is making the most of local food. Somerset is blessed with plenty of high quality artisan producers and we do our best to support them.
Middlewick has a small but well stocked shop on site selling some of the basics that you might need when staying. Our produce is local and organic as much as possible. We sell our own home raised pork, Middlewick eggs, beautiful honey from one of our neighbouring farms, apple juice from orchards close by, homemade chutneys and preserves. See our product list . You can also choose to order our breakfast boxes, either when making your reservation, or by phoning a few days before you arrive.
For a more extensive selection, enjoy the wonderful quality and flavour of locally produced and organic foods delivered to your door by Somerset Local Food Direct.
At the centre of the Middlewick Complex we have a wonderful wood burning Pizza oven.
During the spring and summer holidays (normally on either a Wednesday or Thursday night) we host informal pizza nights for our guests , so do come and join us. We will let you know when you arrive if this is happening. We provide homemade pizza dough and do the cooking. All you need to bring along, other than your family, are toppings to share. You then make your own pizza which will be cooked by Hannah our resident pizza chef and pizza dough maker. We ask that you make a contribution (£5 per adult, £2.50 for children under 7) to my charity fund raising for the British Skin Foundation – ‘Dough for Dough’
If you are staying as a large group or holding a special event, retreat or business meeting at Middlewick we can put on a pizza evening (or lunch for you). For details and pricing please contact our office.
It is always a fun evening!
