Dorset, Weymouth, DT3 4HN
Less than 10 minutes from the impressive Chesil Beach, loved by kids, East Shilvinghampton Farm nestles at the foot of a peaceful valley where you will enjoy dramatic far-reaching views of the green and pretty Dorset countryside. The tents are close-by the farmyard with cows, goats, pigs, hens, ducks and rabbits just a toddle away.
Taking your glamping Dorset family holidays at East Shilvinghampton farm, you will find there is always something going on and plenty to do. On the farm are grown a variety of crops and there are lots of animals to meet, like the beef suckler cows and calves, chickens, Labradors Tess and Ora, Chase the horse, pet goat Trit-Trot and kids, the ducks Pit, Pat and Paddle, our son Henry's pigs, and Pippin, the pony belonging to daughters Georgina and Annabel.
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. Foxes and their cubs, deer, hare and owls, are spotable, all making their homes nearby. The farm larder will sustain 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.
You can breathe in sea air instead of the scents of the woodland, walking the many beaches. These include West Bay, famous home of the TV series Broadchurch, as well as Chesil Beach, the 18-mile stretch of pebbled beach memorably 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
