About us...

Set in the southernmost foothills of Somerset’s Quantock Hills area of outstanding natural beauty Cobbs Cross Farm (Home of Secret Valley) has been farmed by John Hardwick since 1973, now a family business with wife Jan and children Rob, Emma and Will. The farm has evolved greatly since then, turning organic in 2000 rearing Free Range Chickens as well as a Beef Suckler Herd, who can be seen enjoying their freedom in the lush green fields. In recent years the farm has gained some slightly more exotic residents, visitors can see the incredibly cute Miniature Donkeys and cheeky Alpacas roaming around their fields.

The farms lush hilly landscape lends itself to perfect growing conditions for the main crop, Christmas Trees. Along with five acres of Vineyards growing five different varieties of grape: Pinot Noir, Rondo, Orion, Solaris and Reichensteiner producing their first crop in 2010. Red, White, Rose and Sparkling Wines can all be tasted and purchased by visitors.

In 2010 the farm became Home to Secret Valley Glamping starting with six Wigwams to currently providing the option of Wigwams with or without hot tubs, shepherds hut, yurts, lodges or belle tents. With thirty two units strategically placed around the farm each provides a secluded setting to relax and take in the surrounding countryside. Excellent facilities including hot showers, toilets, two fully equipped kitchens/dining rooms and WiFi ensure an extra comfortable stay.

Secret Valley suits both peace seekers and adventure chasers, with the outdoor activity centre providing a variety of activities and the surrounding hills supplies outstanding opportunities for hikers or bikers in search of deserted trails. With all that Secret Valley has to offer and the beautiful South West beaches not to far away there’s simply no place you’d rather be.
