"Perfect for large group celebration"

This was a perfect venue for a big family celebration – in our case a 60th birthday bash with family and friends. The house is spacious, full of character and we found it very comfortable with its e… More

"Perfect for an all age holiday."

Moorbath Farmhouse was idyllic for our family celebration week (Granny's 70th). We were lucky with the weather but there was plenty to occupy the young had it been wet. We loved the 'shabby … More

"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.

We were a large part of 4 families and we all came away having had an amazing time (even though we were there for the storms). The place is huge and so atmospheric that we had endless fun playing hide… More
