Welcome to the website for Netherham Farm, including the History Hut and ‘pop-up’ campsite at Low Ham.

Netherham Farm is a family farm in central Somerset. Today it is farmed by the Cook family, who have been on the farm for over one hundred years. In its rich and varied history the farm has also been the site of a Roman Villa, stately home, golf course and base for American soldiers in World War 2.

Today, you can explore its past at The History Hut, a converted WW2 Nissen Hut, and in the summer months you can stay at the campsite and explore and enjoy all it has to offer yourself.
