Launceston Farm House

Nr Blandford, Dorset, England



This wonderful house is in a league of its own.  With sumptuous bedrooms, evening meal options (should you not wish to venture far), an indoor heated pool (and sauna!!) and a walled garden this lavish but wonderfully relaxed place to stay pretty much has it all – including rave reviews from lifestyle publications such as Red Magazine and Condé Nast Traveller.  To top it all the guest house is set within a very successful organic farm which adds an extra level of interest if you would like to take a tour during your stay.

For larger groups of up to 16 you can HIRE THE TWO COTTAGES TOO

Weddings & Celebrations

With its range of accommodation option, Launceston Farm is a lovely setting for any event or get together. Whilst the main Farmhouse sleeps up to 12 (plus infants), the two self contained cottages, Flint and The Bothy, sleep 2 each.

The Old Cart Shed seats up to 16 so if you are taking the whole place there will be plenty of room for everyone to come together and there are catering options available.

The Location

Nestled in the heart of the Dorset countryside only two hours from London, there is plenty of rural and coastal exploring on your doorstep; from the stunning stately homes and gardens at Longleat, Stourhead and Kingston Lacy to the nearby stretch of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast or the local market towns of Salisbury, Dorchester and Sherborne.

But you may be content to stay at home in this Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse, where you can enjoy guided tours of the working farm if Jimi is around, or wander in the walled garden.

  • only two hours from London, it’s a haven for anyone who appreciates the perfect combination of comfortable, stylish living, superb food and a slice of real country life
  • this place is truly family friendly; indoor pool, acres of space to explore, eggs to collect, as well as the essentials of stair gates, high chairs and cots usually available (please request)

  • for events The Old Cart Shed provides a refreshing 16-seated boardroom environment with stunning countryside and garden views

Sarah is the enterprising farmer who has lovingly restored this Grade II listed Georgian house where she was born.  With her own quirky charm, Sarah has created an affordable indulgent, rural escape which is relaxed and welcoming.  It’s a family affair too. Her son Jimi has come back to run the farm and her daughter Eve is the gardener and forager, with an impressive local knowledge.  Together, they want to share every aspect of what they have created.
