    • A rural location with far reaching views across the countryside set next to permanent pasture/grassland grazed by cows. Extensive access to the farm via numerous footpaths and located between Pilsdon Pen and Lewesdon Hill (the highest hills in Dorset). Ideal for those you wish to relax, enjoy the peace or explore the country side. Laverstock is a working farm and depending on the season there are chickens, ducks, pigs, goats and sheep to see. Plus a large vegetable garden.

  • A Webber BBQ is provided, but please note that charcoal is not supplied. You are welcome to use the BBQ on condition that it is thoroughly cleaned ready for the next guests. I am afraid that the housekeepers do not have time to clean the BBQ so it’s cleanliness at the start is dependent on the thoughtfulness of the previous guests.
