Guests are welcome to come to the main farm to watch the robotic milking, see baby calves, beef animals, sheep, and dogs. Lambing is usually between March and May. Watch sheep and cattle in the fields in spring and summer out over the garden fence. We also grow winter wheat, spring barley, forage maize and various crops for animal feed. We are inspected annually for ABM/FABBL Beef and Lambs Scheme and NDFAS for milk production.

About Mrs Sue Johnson

We have been offering Self Catering holidays for nearly 30 years but have increased the amount in the past 10 years with converting some redundant barns. My eldest daughter and I now run our SC and B&B business together as well as helping out on the farm and doing the office work.

Mrs Sue Johnson purchased this farmhouse in 1995

Why Mrs Sue Johnson chose Bridport

The Dairy is a barn coversion was completed in 1995 from the old dairy and cattle shed at Courthouse Farm.

What makes this farmhouse unique

On converting we tried to keep the same window and door openings although some had to be made a little wider. We have kept the character with it being open plan with exposed beams where ever possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

While working in the west Dorset area for a prolonged period of time, this has been the best place to stay, good location to where ever we was working, good accommodation for our needs, most importantly for us it was nice and warm and the beds where good for a goodnights sleep, simply put this became our home from home. Thanks Sue
