Magdalen Environmental Trust


Magdalen Environmental Trust is a 132 organic farm on the banks of the River Axe. The farm produces fruit and vegetables, meat and eggs, but most of the site is now in conversion to nature reserve.

Most of the time, our buildings are used for school trips and to support charitable work giving people with limited access to nature an experience of the countryside. However, most weekends the two buildings- the Farmhouse and the Courtyard Centre - are available for private hire.

Accommodation is simple and robust, but warm and welcoming. You won't find en-suites or hit tubs here, but you will find an environmentally friendly place to stay, and the fees you pay go directly toward charitable work on site. This family friendly venue offers a picnic and play area and is idea for groups or large family gatherings. Available most weekends all through the year (from Friday evening), and at Christmas and New Year. Electric car charge point and space for coach parking. 

Costs £39 per person, per night. Minimum numbers apply - 10 for the Farmhouse and 20 for the courtyard centre.
