Holidays in the Dorset CountrysideDate Posted: 07 Jul 2014
It is hard to believe that less than a year ago our beautiful lodges were no more than a dream. And here we are after a very busy and sometimes stressful few month with two most exquisite rural lodges. They are tucked away amongst our Christmas tree (trees we planted 17 years ago!) plantation, yet have fantastic views to the west – almost a touch of Scandinavia! Since early July we have had back to back bookings and all the guests have commented how they have loved the tranquillity and idyllic location.
So here I am writing this in early September on probably the busiest weekend of the year here in Dorset. Locals and tourists from all over Europe flock to The Great Dorset Steam Fair and Dorset County Show – both highlights of our country life in this wonderful hidden gem of a county.
The weather has finally dried up and we may just be able to enjoy some of our famous Jurassic coastline, before winter sets in.
However, winter or not our Dorset Country Lodges will be warm and cosy on the coldest of days, with their under floor heating and wood burning stoves. Unlimited logs are available from our own farm. Even the hot tubs will be tempting.
Our caravan site (campsite) has been busy this summer with a steady stream of tourers and motor homes, sometimes braving some pretty inclement weather.
As the site has ten pitches we have lots of room, although rallies are becoming more and more popular, so it is always advisable to book. East Dorset Caravan Club were here in July and enjoyed glorious sunsets over the Dorsetshire Gap. Purbeck Caravan Club are due here in a couple of week so lets hope the weather holds up for that. It will be lovely here in the Autumn!
Bookings for the Lodges are already rolling in for 2016 – so we are looking forward to a bumper year!
It is worth mentioning that Brewery Farm boasts an excellent shop with hits new in-store butchery. Guests have already been making good use of all the shops local produce and meats on the barbeques provided.
Updates of things happening here at Brewery Farm and locally in Dorset will appear in my monthly blog – so don’t forget to have a catchup!
