Home / Dorset / Character Farm Cottages

Character Farm Cottages are a haven of tranquillity on our beautiful working dairy farm near Abbotsbury, within walking distance of the Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

Whether you are looking for a coastal holiday or country break, our seven Character Farm Cottages are perfectly situated for the best of both worlds; surrounded by gorgeous countryside yet just a mile from Chesil Beach, which you can see from most of the farm.

Our luxury stone barn, Chestnut, has been awarded the Enjoy England Gold Award for quality. A wonderful space for holidays with the whole family or a large group of friends, this characterful barn has a large country kitchen, spacious lounge with woodburner, five large bedrooms and room for a cot. Chestnut is suitable for wheelchair users too, so everyone can come and relax.

For big families or groups of friends, Chelsea Cottage is a spacious country cottage sleeping up to 8 guests. Comfortably furnished with a family kitchen and lounge with open fire, downstairs double bedroom and double, twin and triple bedrooms upstairs. The private sunny patio and garden is a super place for a barbeque or just to unwind while the children and dogs play.

Our lovely ‘olde worlde cottage’, The Sycamores, sleeps up to 5 people in a family bedroom and twin bedroom. With a cosy log fire, stylish country kitchen and private garden with barbeque, this cottage has everything you need for a relaxing family holiday.

3 Lower Farm will give you a real sense of a proper country cottage holiday. This cute stone cottage has some fantastic character features including old wooden beams and inglenook fireplace. Great for families, there are two bedrooms (a triple and a double that can be converted to twin if you wish) and a large garden for children and dogs to stretch their legs.

Swallows, our bright country cottage, is perfect for a family of four; the farmhouse kitchen, lounge with open fire, double bedroom (can be made into a twin if you wish), twin bedroom and sunny patio in the garden give you all the space you need.

For a luxury romantic break, Willows and Brambles are ideal for couples looking for a quiet hideaway. Each 4 star Gold award cottage has bright, sunny rooms, their own patio and cosy log fires to relax by in the evening.

At Character Farm Cottages, you are very welcome to come and learn about life on our working dairy farm. You can meet the calves, feed the cows and even watch them being milked.

We have two large cottages perfect for big families or groups of friends; Chestnut sleeps 9 and Chelsea sleeps 8. Or if your group would like their own space, we have seven Character Farm Cottages in total for you to rent, accommodating a group of up to 35 guests.

Enjoy the personal touch at this family-run working dairy and beef farm, located on the Dorset coast near Weymouth and Dorchester. The 4* holiday cottages range in size from one to five bed-rooms, and make a great base for exploring the coastal path.
