2020 Cottage Holidays available to book now - and we have some exciting news!
Since we converted The Six House & The Loose House from an old stone barn in 2001, we have been offering weekly holidays from Saturday to Saturday. Over the last few months we have been gathering feedback from visitors to the farm, holiday cottages, lakes, campsite and café and also via our website and Facebook page to try to gauge the interest for holidays starting on a Friday and also for short breaks starting on either a Friday or a Monday.
Interestingly, it’s almost exactly an even split of people preferring a Saturday changeover and staying for a week and those looking to come for a shorter time or not having to travel on a Saturday!
So, from 2020 we will still be offering weekly holidays from Saturday to Saturday in The Six House but (this is the exciting bit!) also weekly holidays from Friday to Friday and short breaks of 3 or 4 nights in the Loose House. Our new tariff and availability calendar can be found by clicking here.
Thanks to everyone who took part in the survey and we look forward to welcoming you for a 'Bullocks break' soon!
North Pool Maintenance - September 2019
We've had the boys with the big toys in to fix a leaky bank on the North Pool. The ground between the northern edge of the lake and the hedge separating it from the campsite is still a bit wet and therefore pegs 17 - 25 will need to remain closed until it dries up enough to level it over.
If you notice a blue tinge to the water in the North Pool it's because we've introduced a blue vegetable dye to the lake to help suppress the weed. It's a commercial product and is completely harmless to the fish. The lake is fishing well - just think of it as a touch of the Mediterranean coming to Somerset!
Tiffin Cafe at Bullock Farm
Time for a fanfare - Tiffin Cafe at Bullock Farm is open as of Wednesday 27th March 2019!
The Tiffin team have worked really hard on a fabulous refurbishment of the café and have created a really special place to visit with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. They’ll be serving up farmhouse kitchen style food championing local produce 6 days a week (closed on Tuesday). We can heartily recommend their Sunday roast (bookings advisable).
Many of you will already know them from the lovely ‘Tiffin at the Pier’ and ‘Tiffin at the Beach’ in Clevedon where they have built up an excellent reputation for their fabulous food and great customer service over the last few years. If you don’t already know them, you are in for a treat!
Here’s a link to their website to get your mouth watering in anticipation! Tiffin Cafe at Bullock Farm or you can call them on 01934 833125.

We've been receiving some really nice reviews on our Facebook page and Google, we really appreciate them! Here are a couple of the most recent ones:
"Great place to fish nice food 👍"
"First time we fished here. Great pegs to fish on Rushcombe lake. £8 for day ticket. Cafe on site with toilets nearby."
"Fabulous campsite. Friendly with good, clean facilities a nice little on-site cafe and plenty of fishing lakes catering for most tastes. Camping/touring side isn't too large either. Fishing stands are well spaced. Lacks a tackle shop but there is one close by."

We can also offer season tickets which cover a whole year's fishing. They cost £160 or £120 for a concession.

Match Lake Improvements
The Match Lake had some major work carried out to remove the bulrushes from the main part of the lake and create two new islands at the beginning of April 2018. We're really pleased with the results and the feedback from customers has been overwhelmingly positive. During the course of the work an estimated 250 tonnes of silt was taken from the lake bed and used to infill the new islands so, if you haven't visited us for a while, you will need to replumb! Aquatic Solutions UK carried out this specialist work for us with an amazing piece of machinery called a Truxor meaning that we could carry out the work without having to remove trees etc and making minimal mess. A great job! Photos on the Match Lake page and Facebook.
