VENN FARM HOLIDAYS IN WEST DORSET

Venn Farm is a small working farm tucked away in an unspoilt valley between Bridport and Lyme Regis in West Dorset.  It is just 1 mile north of the small, picturesque village of Chideock and 2 miles from the stunning World Heritage Jurassic Coastline and southwest footpath.

Venn Farm is just one mile from the nearest farm shop and convenience store plus there are three pubs serving excellent food.  Situated on the owner’s working farm for pigs, sheep and horses, Venn Orchard is dog friendly and in a great location for dog walking with numerous stunning walks from the farm itself (featured in Julia Bradbury’s ‘Best Walks in Britain’). The farm is an intersection for the Monarch Way long-distance footpath.

Accommodation at Venn Farm consists of 2 stunning shepherd’s huts, perfect for couples and a large family bungalow with accommodation for 12 +1.  There is an outdoor play area for children, animals to pet, a fairy tree and a large barn for multiple indoor activities to keep both adults and children amused.

The tranquil setting is within easy driving of scenic coastal walking, fishing, boating, golf and fossil hunting. All along the coast are many little seaside resorts to enjoy.
