We are a family run Farm and the fourth generation to farm here,we live on the farm with our two sons Adam & Ben our dog Boris & horses Fire Moon Spyder & Pops, plus chickens Hazel Hebe Hattie & Hennie who will provide you with wonderful free range eggs.

Our farm consists of mixed crops with our main crop being haylage & hay, which if you come during the summer months you can see being made in the fields nearby.

Idyllic rural retreat with great fishing

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a quiet, unspoilt area of Dorset, Kelpers barn enjoys an elevated position with glorious views. The barn is modern, light and airy, and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We also visited in November and it was warm and cosy.

Tim and Debbie are attentive hosts who will offer advice on places to visit. We went to Stourhead House and gardens which were beautiful and is only about 15 minutes drive way. Shaftsbury and Sherbourne are also close by. There are some lovely walks from the door and within easy reach. Plenty of good pubs in the area eg The Stapleton Arms In Buckhorn Weston and The White Lion in Bourton. There is also a lovely golf course near Bourton which looks quite challenging.

My husband really enjoyed his time fishing in the lake. The carp were great fun, his best fish was a Common weighing 7lbs but there were bigger ones that outwitted him! Wildlife around the farm was fantastic and it was nice to see a water vole by the lake.

We look forward to returning with our golf clubs and binoculars.
