.The property is approached by a farm track which is accessible with a normal car. We have a standard saloon which is used every day and is still going strong after about 10 years! The track goes through a farm (not ours) and can be muddy in wet weather. When our garden is open we may have 50 cars coming through, and in 15 years have had no complaints about access.
The Dorset region
It is the variety of landscape that gives Dorset it's great charm. It has a greater range of rock type and scenery than any other county in southern England. From the isle of Purbeck in the South East with it's limestone plateau, clay vale and chalk ridge, one moves North West over open heathlands giving way to rolling chalk downs in the centre, which end dramatically along a high escarpment.
From here one drops down to clay vales ribbed by low limestone hills to the North west and the more rugged sandstone and limestone heights and clay vales of the west.
This five-fold geological division results in spectacular varied beauty still relatively unknown and undisturbed, which is the reason for coming to Dorset.
The immediate area has numerous attractions to suit every taste. The nearby historic towns of Dorchester, Wareham and Weymouth - all featured in the novels of Thomas Hardy - support a variety of restaurants, museums and buildings of interest. For the sporting guest, there are three golf courses, tennis courts and a sailing academy all within 10 miles. There are historic houses and gardens to visit and the area abounds with good pubs and eating places.
But primarily this area is a walkers paradise, the coastal path giving access to spectacular views and features of geological interest such as Durdle Dor and Lulworth Cove, both within easy walking distance.

"Truly Memorable Family Holiday..."
Philippa and Anthony are the perfect hosts. Always available when required. The accommodation is charming and has all the mod cons. The gardens are simply a picture of how an English country garden should be. We walked every day and criss-crossed the entire Dorset coast by car from Lyme Regis to Bournemouth - and every bay, beach and inlet in between. A different day-trip every day. A surprise around every corner. The Holworth horses and ponies and dogs are ever so friendly and extremely popular with our family.

We spent 4 nights and enjoyed the quite county side, wondering around the lovely garden soaking up the sun. The walk to the beach and along the cliff top was very nice. There were plenty of tourist brochures plus help from Phillipa on where to go and what to see.

"Gorgeous hideaway, but close to good pubs and places to visit."
We recently stayed at Holworth, and had the most wonderful mini break with friends. We had a lovely welcome from Philippa, (home made flapjacks at the ready!), which made up for the rain! The log burner was in full flow too, which made it all very cosy. The sun decided to come out for the next few days which meant we could make full use of wandering round the delightful garden. It is a beautiful space. Just a little tip, watch the track-it seems bumpier going to the farmhouse than coming away; particularly by the farm. Its worth the bumps though!

"Fantastic weekend away"
My husband and I recently stayed at the Holworth Farmhouse with two of our friends and their small dog. The property was absolutely amazing - from the incredibly garden to the tennis courts and surrounding farm. Philippa and her husband could not have been better hosts and even greeted us with a bottle of wine and homemade cookies upon arrival. This is a fantastic house for those looking to get away for the weekend.

"Beautiful holiday venue"
We stayed in this charming house for a few days in August. Upon arrival we were greeted by Mr & Mrs Bush and a fresh tin of homemade flapjacks and immediatley were made to feel very welcome. The annex was very clean, well equiped and comfortable, and the bedrooms were spacious and well thought out. The garden is certainly worth a visit in its own right and holds many surprises around every corner (look for the tennis court also!) The location is very central to the local amenities, while we were there we managed to visit Lulworth cove, Durdle door, Bournemouth and Weymouth. On the downside the approach road to the house needs careful navigation if you dont have a 4x4 and as this is a grade II listed house there is many plants and creepers covering the house, so be sure to remember to close the windows at night, as we found out, that bugs like to come in!! Overall the experience is one we would definatly do again and to recommened to friends! Thankyou to Anthony and Phillipa Bush.

"Ideal for Views and Quiet"
The accommodation is very spacious and well equipped the beds were really comfortable. The owners are friendly without being too intrusive, and welcomed us with home made cakes. The gardens are lovely and the whole environment quiet and relaxing. The main drawback is that the house is quite far off the beaten track, but this is made absolutely clear in the accommodation details.

"Lovely cottage in peaceful setting"
We very much enjoyed staying at Holworth Farmhouse. The owners made us feel very welcome. The cottage has a beautiful sitting room and very comfortable bedrooms. The garden is stunning. It's a good location from which to explore the beautiful coastline. Views from the property are really lovely.
