Dorset, Blandford Forum
Rated with 9.3(158 Reviews)
Located in a timeless patch of English countryside, you will escape the hustle and bustle of city life and discover the stunning peace of Mount Pleasant in Dorset. Mike and Anna will teach you all about their family-run farm, home to Hereford and Aberdeen Angus cattle, a flock of ewes, horses, pigs and a collection of poultry. Your canvas hideaways are in the middle of a glorious meadow looking out over your beautiful surroundings - the ideal spot for a Dorset family holiday.
If the farm isn’t enough to keep you occupied, Mount Pleasant is just a half hour from some of Dorset’s most beautiful beaches – Ringstead and Lulworth Cove being two of our guests’ favourites. The market town of Blandford Forum is just 15 minutes away, with lovely villages on the way and a Crazy Monsters indoor soft-play centre for the little ones. If you feel like venturing further afield, the ruins of Corfe and Wardour castles and the Purbeck Heritage Coast are all within 25 miles of the farm. There is walking and cycling possibilities aplenty – just ask Mike or Anna and they’ll tailor something to your needs.
During the day, grab a cuppa and have a chat with Mike about his days growing up on the farm while the kids play around the little wooden caravan he has set up. There is no set farm tour but he is happy to put on a farm walk for those interested in learning more about farming in this country. Breathe in the fresh country air as you take a vigorous walk towards the farm’s nearest hill at Bulbarrow, and breathe in the fantastic view from the tallest point in Dorset. Or you can simply relax by your canvas hideaway and observe the wildlife going by whether it’s sheep, deers, owls or foxes. Round off the day by firing up the outdoor pizza oven on-site and just drink in the blissful setting before you retire to your cosy bed, a perfect end to a perfect Dorset family holiday.

Meet your hosts
We are the Miller family and we run our farm with a little help from Paddy the sheepdog. Mike was lucky enough to be brought up at Mount Pleasant along with his older brother and sister.
Looking forward to welcoming you to the Dorset peace and serenity at Mount Pleasant.
