Dorset, Weymouth, DT3 4HN
The farm lies under 10 minutes from the impressive Chesil Beach, loved by kids, a couple of minutes' walk from the Dorset AONB and in the middle of the Jurassic Coast world heritage site. East Shilvinghampton nestles at the foot of a peaceful valley offering dramatic views of the green and pretty Dorset countryside. The tents are close by the farmyard with cows, goats, pigs, hens and ducks just a toddle away.
Taking your glamping Dorset family holidays at East Shilvinghampton farm, there are lots of animals to meet like the beef suckler cows and calves and pedigree limousin cows some of whom you will meet on the farm tour. Some real personalities include Labradors Tess and Ora, pet goat Trit-Trot and kids, Leonard the farm cat (who loves visiting tents ), the ducks Pit, Pat and Paddle, Henry's pigs, Chase the horse, and Pippin the pony belonging to daughters Georgina and Annabel. Also all making their homes nearby, and spot-able, are foxes and their cubs, deer, hares and owls. Take the secret woodland passage. There is always something going on, on your East Shilvinghampton family holidays!
Feedback informs that families love the setting of the tents as the children can play and roam freely and safely within sight and earshot of parents. The farm larder will sustain them and you, being well stocked with lots of local produce and the farm's own beef and pork. Joby's homemade goodies are not to be missed on this perfect Dorset glamping farm holiday, particularly her meringue roulade! There is a very handy outdoor covered eating area next to the pizza oven.
As well as scents of the forest, you can breathe in sea air walking the many beaches. These include West Bay, famous home of the Broadchurch TV series, and Chesil. Visit Dorchester's Dinosaur Museum and just 25 miles away the stunning RSBP Arne landscape, with family activities too.
We are the Bartlett family; Martin, Joby and children Henry, Annabel and Georgina and together with Martin's parents Tom and Sheila, the farm has been home to our family for nearly 70 years.
We would love to see you soon, Martin and Joby
