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).

OUT YURTS

We have three 15ft diameter yurts each sleeping 4/5 people.(max 4 adults).  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.

We are approximately 12 miles from the Jurassic south coast, and yet easy access to the Somerset Levels north, the Blackdown Hills west and Thomas Hardy country east.


AROUND THE FARM AND THINGS TO DO

We are a working farm. There are cows and calves, ewes and lambs in the fields. Watch and feed the chickens and ducks ( eggs for sale). Play outside ball games, or inside board games, or just relax in front of an open fire taking in the scenery, and toasting marshmallows!      Sorry NO DOGS.

VERY SAFE FOR CHILDREN

To the north  of us, the landscape changes from the rolling hill of West Dorset to the flat Somerset levels, with  wetlands and willows, and Glastonbury Tor and Abbey to explore. 

To the west there is the beautiful area of the Blackdown Hills on the Somerset/Devon border. 

There are plenty of country houses and gardens to explore within very easy driving  distance, such as Forde Abbey near Chard, Montacute House and Barrington Court, many are National Trust. 

We have plenty of tourist information literature for you, so that you will surely find something to do for all the family, come rain or shine.
