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.

We are inspected annually for ABM/FABBL Beef and Lambs Scheme and NDFAS for milk production.

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.

From the Owner

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.
