Middlemarsh is a small hamlet in the heart of peaceful Dorset countryside and within easy reach of Cerne Abbas, the ancient Abbey town of Sherborne and the historic market town of Dorchester. Also within easy travelling distance are lovely coastal attractions including Lulworth Cove, Weymouth and Lyme Regis.
White Horse Farm is ideally situated for anybody who wishes to explore Wessex and the surrounding area. There are literally hundreds of things to do within a reasonable distance. If you don't want to do anything, but just soak up the atmosphere, you can do that in peace without the hustle and bustle of town/city life. You will find woodland walks, fishing, lakes, horse-riding, golf and various museums including Thomas Hardy's cottage. For the more adventurous, you can go shooting, karting, quadbiking or even Llama trekking!
We have a two-acre paddock which has been largely left to nature, with grass paths mown through it. There are many species of flora and fauna living in the paddock and you can often see deer and numerous species of birds from here. We also have a duck pond which you can sit around and enjoy a glass of wine
Our self-catering guests have the use of the BBQ cabin or portablecharcoal barbeques for those hot summer evenings. Each cottage also has a small patio area with table and chairs. "The Willows" and Otter's Holt have their own private gardens.
If you are unlucky with the weather (although Dorset has among the highest number of recorded hours of sunshine in the U.K.), there are still many things to do. If you literally want to "veg-out" for the week, stay in and watch as many free videos as you want to - we have literally hundreds to chose from.
The cottages and farmhouse are within easy reach of local inns at Cerne Abbas, Buckland Newton and Longburton, which all serve good food and fine Dorset ales in a friendly atmosphere. We are also only 100 yards from the "Hunters Moon" situated next door. Some of the local pubs have skittle alleys - try your luck!
