Experience a luxury farmstay in heart of Somerset


Upper Vobster Farm is a beautiful country property lovingly restored and created over the past 30 years to help you take a rest from the stresses of life. There are wonderful walks, animals to see, places to sit and time to be.

Perfect for families, couples and groups of people who want to come to a place where you can have a moment to be yourself again.

The farm compromises of 55 acres of land, including a 6 acre wood, which is a nature conservation area and preservation area for birds of prey. Nature, the woods and the sounds of the birds will make you stop in your tracks and feel the magic around.

There are two small lakes with damsel flies and dragonflies, one with a beach with logs and rocks to sit on that also harbours a large number of newts and the other one which is near an old stone bridge that leads you on to the old drovers way. You’ll find a flock of North Ronaldsay rare breed sheep, pygmy goats, various ducks which live in their own castle, many varieties of hens and other wildlife.

Grasses and wildflowers are abundant in summer, bluebells and wild garlic in spring and numerous fungi in autumn. Winter frosts leave an enchanting feel to treasure when you’re all wrapped up and can come back to a warm fire.

As our guest you are welcome to enjoy all that we have to offer.

Nestled in the Mendips in North Somerset there is plenty to do and explore. The up and coming market town of Frome with numerous cafes and restaurants in 15 minutes away, Historic Nunney Castle is less than 10 minutes away, Mells made famous by Jack Horner is a few minutes drive and the City of Bath is 13 miles away.

Longleat Adventure and Safari park is within a 20 minute drive, Cheddar Gorge with its breath taking scenery and walks is a similar distance away. The infamous Babington House, part of the Soho House group, is a mere few minutes drive.

Upon booking we send out a digital guidebook which lists these and many more.

Meet the owner

Michael and Tricia Nicholson

When Tricia first visited the property she felt the potential of what the place could hold and always knew that it would be somewhere for people to come to. What's more, she saw the real purpose of the Farm as a place that opens its doors to share with all those looking for supportive accommodation away from home. Upper Vobster Farm is the family home of Tricia & Michael Nicholson. Today the farm house is surrounded by cottages, a barn and a traditional farm courtyard that people come to enjoy from all around the world.
