The cabin is on a farm so there will be the occasional sound and smell of the countryside – sheep and cattle in the meadow, the odd tractor or quad on the farm track
Mobile reception is not great – we would urge you to switch off and enjoy a break from electronics!
Our little shop sells local beers, cider and wine, as well as our own lamb, pork and beef from the farm when available.

Picturesque Lyme Regis with its sandy beach and famous harbour is seven miles away, while Bridport with its bustling Saturday market and colourful vintage quarter is just down the coast. Both are fun places to while away a morning pottering.
Surrounded by low intensity farmland, our fields teem with wildlife. Lie on the sun deck and watch our resident swallows and housemartins wheel overhead while buzzards circle high in the sky. In the morning you might well even see roe deer grazing from the comfort of the king size bed.
We give you a pile of logs for your camp fire so you can create the ultimate wood-fired feast – with our own pork chops and sausages. Our little shop also stocks beer from across the valley and sparkling wine from our friends down the road. Maybe finish the evening toasting marshmallows from the jar we keep stocked up in the cabin.
Hidden trails and ancient ‘holloways’ criss-cross this part of Hardy’s Wessex. The farm is on The Wessex Trail itself, so there are plenty of strolls, rambles and hikes to be had. From nearby Lambert’s Castle survey the whole of the Marshwood Vale and the Atlantic beyond. You can even walk on down to the sea for a well-earned dip at Charmouth.
