Farmhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Dorset holiday cottage in an idyllic rural setting near Britain's Jurassic Coast - Comfortably sleeps eight.
The cottage is on Chalmington Farm is 100 acres of organic West Dorset countryside. Peter and Lucy Claxton bought it in 2011 with the aim of maintaining it as naturally as possible with minimal interference and management.
The Granary provides very comfortable and quiet accommodation in a really beautiful part of England. Guests are always more than welcome to wander around and enjoy the tranquillity and beauty. We are more than happy to offer as much or as little advice as you want in terms of where to go, what to do and what is the local area in and around West Dorset.
The Granary is a recently converted building, used originally to store fodder for the dairy herd that were here on the 400 acre farm. Local builders spent a few years designing and completing the Granary to offer flexible and comfortable accommodation to sleep up to 8. We have a community Biomass heating system and use a Biodisc waste management system. The accommodation is tailored for disabled visitors and we are always delighted to welcome guests with special needs or those requiring a holiday let with disabled access.
The land is a mixture of old grassland, some Italian ryegrass and old and new woodland. There is a duck pond and a larger lake stocked with brown and rainbow trout. Every spring we welcome nesting birds and ducks. The River Frome runs along the western boundary an ideal spot for playing pooh sticks.
It is possible to rent electric bikes to explore the area. you can sample beef and lamb from the farm.
Party venue: looking to celebrate an occasion. You can hire our marquee to host a party on the lawn or down by the lake or river. contact us for more information.
Local caterer can provide meals on arrival or for a special occasion.
