About Tim Barratt

Born in Shropshire the owner has a large family and equally large collection of animals. They bought Pitt Farm six years ago and have enjoyed the challenge of restoring the house and its grounds to the highest standard whilst preserving its historic features. As a family we enjoy a number of outdoor pursuits, all of which are readily available locally.

Tim Barratt purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Tim Barratt chose Minehead

The Lywoods have been visiting West Somerset for many years and Pitt Farm presented the opportunity to have a unique house, close to the Sea and yet with all the obvious advantages of being in the Exmoor National Park.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Pitt has stunning views of the Moor and an exceptional garden with two fresh water pools and a small brook running past the sun terrace and is within easy reach of Historic Porlock Weir and a wealth of other beauty spots.

Glorious location

  • 3 of 5

The property was immaculate,very high speck BUT unsuitable for folk with mobility problems e.g steps at every doorway,no handrail on a circular walled stairway .Difficulty finding light switches,often behind an open door with a step. No key to open conservatory doors,had to go the long way round to use the sunny terrace;thermostat gone on range so dangerously hot at times...would have been good to have a conventional oven in an otherwise lovely kitchen.Property needs checking throughout for suitability for 10 people ,we were only 7

Genuinely stunning house and grounds. Really well equipped with quality bed linen and kitchenware. The photos don't really do it justice. It is much more spacious than it looks, and the views of the surrounding hills are sensational. We were so lucky to find this place for a family celebration. It was absolutely ideal, and we were all delighted with it.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky enough to stay here over Christmas. 5 adults, 2 under 2's plus our 2 Labradors.

Upon arrival I must have walked around this house and its grounds in amazement for at least 10 minutes. This place is stunning, the photos do not do it justice. It has been refurbished to a extremely high standard.

The area itself is stunning, we went on so many nice walks.

The local town of Porlock is great to visit too, lots of nice pubs.

There are so many fantastic areas to visit near by.

We really did have the most special of weeks and can not wait to come back.

Had a lovely stay with the family set in a beautiful rural location. All the amenities you need. Completed to an excellent standard. You can see the love that has been put into finishing it All the adults and children loved it. I especially enjoyed the cosy lounge with the log burner. I'm sure we will book again. Thank you
