The West Country region

West Dorset is am amazingly beautiful and tranquil part of the country.

It combines coast, country and endless things to do and see while on holiday from para-gliding off the Downs to fishing off the coast or simply totally relaxing in a quant old pub.

People come to West Dorset for the food, the beaches, sailing, water sports, walking, riding, strange woodland crafts or simple peace and quiet


Locally there are fantastic pubs and restaurants particularly seafood restaurants. Great walks and bicycling.

Sea fishing as well as nearby lakes and reservoirs. There are several horse riding stables.

Bridport is a very relaxed and fascinating place with its street market, artist studios, book and antique shops, Electric Cinema and live music

"Ideal location for family, good accommodation, excellent activities on site"

Excellent rooms, beds, linen etc. Constant hot water in bathrooms. Good lounges and comprehensive kitchen with large range cooker, two dish washers, large fridge with second fridge for drinks in utility room and good freezer.
Pool nice and warm with good changing area and showers, table tennis, skittles and pool table all good. Good grass area for other activities, we set up badminton and Kubb.
Very quiet location apart from country road at front. Plenty of parking for 5-6 cars.
Good outside seating area with BBQ, gas fired would be better though.
Sky plus sports and two excellent TVs.

"Great relaxing farmhouse for a Golden Wedding celebration family get-together."

A wonderful old spacious farmhouse set in a lovely quiet part of Dorset. The lovely indoor swimming pool was occupied every day from 7.15am by three granddaughters of 8, 6 and 5 years much to their parents dismay!
The beds were most comfortable and peace and quiet all around at night apart from the odd owl or two and a cockerel in the morning.
There is no Broadband WiFi as stated on one website. Take extra dishwasher tablets and tea towels and also towels for the swimming pool.
Louisa Hawker provided delicious food and two lovely ladies, Kathy and Kate who looked after us beautifully.

Moorbath now has a satellite based WIFI broadband system throughout the house and most of the garden.

"A perfect place for a large family gathering"

We were at Moorbath Farmhouse for Christmas, and couldn't have wanted a better place to be – welcoming us with lit fires, a decorated tree, and holly-decked pictures. Even a bunch of mistletoe.

There was everything we needed: plenty of crockery and cutlery, so there was always enough , even with full loads in the two dishwashers, for our party of 18. Our ages ranged from 2 to 65, and Moorbath suited us all.

The dining table was especially appreciated. 18 adults sat round it one evening, without being at all crowded, and with plenty of space down the middle of the table for setting out the feast, and the drink to go with it. The only shame was the time of year meant we couldn't eat outside and make use of the tables and cooking equipment there, and the lovely garden.

"Perfect spot for a chill-out"

We booked Moorbath Farm for a weekend away with friends. Everyone loved the setting - quiet and peaceful in lovely surroundings. The bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped. We enjoyed the swimming pool and skittle alley and went home feeling relaxed and ready to face the world again. I'm sure we'll be back next time we need to re-charge our batteries.

"Fantastic house for a big gathering"

We stayed at Moorbath Farmhouse to celebrate a 40th birthday and had a fantastic weekend. The farmhouse is absolutely beautiful and it is really thoughtfully equipped - two dishwashers, very large quantities of crockery etc - which make it easy to cater for a large group.

All of the rooms are nicely decorated and spotlessly clean, with very comfortable beds. It was great to have so many activities available on site - adults and children alike loved the pool (which the pictures online don't do justice to), table tennis, skittle alley and pool table. The kids loved seeing the horses and the men were very impressed that there was Sky Sports!

The house is very close to Bridport, so you have easy access to a wide range of shops and amenities whilst being remote enough that you can have a large gathering without worrying about making too much noise. I would recommend this house to anyone without reservation.
