We are a small family run beef and sheep farm in the beautiful West Dorset countryside. The Visit England sign means "quality in tourism" and that we are "Alternative Accommodation Accredited". We are in an area of “Outstanding Natural Beauty”, near Beaminster, with lovely country views in the day and with little light pollution, starlit nights (weather permitting).
We have three 15ft diameter yurts each sleeping 4/5 people. Constructed of ash wood frames and water resistant canvas. Situated on a level grass field, with newly planted fruit trees, very easy access and parking, with plenty of room of your own. Hot showers and toilets.
