Character cottages suitable for couples families or larger parties
Our six cottages are of varying sizes so can be used by couples, groups of friends and families and friends holidaying together. Why not think about an extended family party using three cottages.
No light pollution so enjoy the night skies
We are a mile from a public road. There is no light pollution here and you can see the stars and night skies.
Peace and quiet
This quiet scenic valley is secluded. Although we are only about a mile north of Abbotsbury village we have no passing traffic – just a few passing sheep as they move from field to field.
Abundance of birdlife and wildlife
We are keen to keep Gorwell as a special haven for wildlife. The woodland, fields and wetland areas are habitats for a huge number of different species. Roe deer and sika deer are often seen in the fields or in the woodland. Song birds, birds of prey, owls and the usual garden and field birds are here. Bats, butterflies and moths all enjoy living in our valley.
No noise pollution so sleep easy
There is no passing traffic. All the animals are either in the fields or in the barn approximately half a mile away. When you arrive at Gorwell you will pass the barns on the way to the cottages. As the barns are not situated too close you can enjoy the peace and quiet.
Wake up to the beautiful valley views
Our views down the valley are stunning as are the views from the top of the hills and at the entrance to the farm. The entrance of the farm has far reaching views west along the Jurassic Coast from Weymouth and Portland and around the Lyme Bay.
Great walks horse riding and cycle rides within very easy access
With almost 3000 miles of rights of ways in Dorset and a network of quiet country lanes the area is wonderful for walking, cycling and horse riding.
Play areas for the everyone
We have a hard surface tennis court, a covered area with table tennis and a small skittle alley. Our games room has a pool table and table football. Our outside area has swings, slide, climbing frame and lots of space to play football, and whatever other ball games you like. There is lots of space here for you and your children to safely play and let off steam.
Close proximity to an abundance of popular activities
Whatever your hobbies and interests Gorwell is conveniently situated for so many options. The coast offers watersports, diving, sailing, fishing and beaches for all types of activities.
Dorchester, Weymouth and Bridport are only about 10 miles away and are all interesting towns for many reasons. Dorchester is the county town with its museums, shopping, restaurants. Bridport is the local food and arts centre of Dorset. Weymouth is a traditional family seaside town with lovely sandy beaches, the harbour, shopping and restaurants. Abbotsbury is just a mile from Gorwell and is a pretty stone thatched ancient village with craft shops, art shops, tea rooms attractions and a couple of pubs.
Eating out locally is easy as there is so much choice all year. Whether you opt for locally caught fish or other excellent food this part of West Dorset has a wealth of options.
Woods full of bluebells in the spring
I know this is number 11 but I just had to mention our fabulous bluebell woods and banks of wildflowers which are so pretty in the spring and summer! Enjoy your holiday at Gorwell Farm!
