Nestling at the foot of a peaceful valley just a stone's throw from the impressive Chesil Beach, you will enjoy dramatic far-reaching views of the green and pretty Dorset countryside. Our tents are close-by the farmyard with cows, goats, pigs, hens, ducks and rabbits just a toddle away. And visitors love our bee hives.
There is always something going on and always plenty to do. On the farm we grow a variety of crops and there are lots of animals to meet, like the beef suckler cows and calves, chickens, Labradors Tess and Ora, pet goats Trit and Trot, the ducks - Pit, Pat and Paddle, our son Henry's pigs and Pippin, the pony belonging to our two daughters Georgina and Annabel.
Feedback tells us 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 hay barn is a big hit as a children's favourite. After animal visits you may wish to forage in the hedges as they often yield abundant fruit, especially in the autumn. Look out too for foxes and their cubs, deer, hare and owls, all of which make their homes nearby. The farm larder is well stocked with lots of local produce and our own beef and pork. Joby's home-made goodies are not to be missed particularly her meringue roulade.
Walk the many beaches including nearby Chesil Beach, an 18-mile stretch of pebbled beach famously depicted in Ian McEwan's novel 'On Chesil Beach' and Powell & Pressburger's film 'The Small Back Room'.
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
