Enjoy a farm self catering holiday on the Dorset and Devon border
Leave all your troubles behind and sample a taste of country life on a working farm in the beautiful west Dorset and east Devon countryside. Collect eggs for breakfast, take a guided farm tour, enjoy marvellous walks or simply relax and soak up the countryside. A self catering farm holiday is the perfect way to recharge your batteries.
Wake up, look out from your window and gaze across the meadows down into the valley - watch the cattle amble towards the milk parlour and listen to the birds singing. In the distance is the sound of the babbling brook – why not take a walk along its banks later and then venture up the hill to the woodland for a picnic lunch.
All of this awaits you if you take a self catering cottage holiday on a working farm. If you live in a large town or city and you feel in need of a break and time to recharge your batteries a self catering farm holiday is the ideal solution. As you head into the part of England where Devon and Dorset meet the pace of life slows a little. Take time to soak up the wonderful scenery – the gentle rolling hills, the colourful meadows and the rivers flowing slowly towards the stunning Lyme Bay coastline.
As you pass through the farm gate you can see the farmer ahead with his faithful farm dog by his side – you can be assured of a warm welcome from him and his family. They are proud of their farm and the surrounding countryside and want you to enjoy and appreciate the rural way of life.
As you settle into your holiday cottage surrounded by the most beautiful countryside you will be able to relax as your worldly concerns float away.
Your stay on a working farm will give you a firsthand view of the farmer’s world. Take a look across the fields and orchards of ripening crops and fruit, visit the milking parlour or the newborn lambs and watch the plough etching its patterns across the hillside.
The quality of many of the farm cottages is outstanding – interesting buildings that in many cases have stood for hundreds of years. Cottages carefully converted to fabulous holiday accommodation by the families that have owned the farms for generations. They want to share this world with holidaymakers who they hope will return time and time again and tell their friends about their wonderful farm holiday experience.
To add to this wonderful holiday experience take a short trip to the nearby Lyme Bay coast – the coast here is renowned for its fossil hunting, breathtaking natural beauty and sheltered harbours. Indeed the coastline on the West Dorset and East Devon border is known as The Jurassic Coast and for good reason. The coastline stretches 95 miles from Dorset through to East Devon and is a truly stunning spectacle, with rock formations recording 185 million years of the Earth's history.
