Introduction and general Information

Priory Farm Cottage is approximately 200 years old. It is built of cob walls and thatch, with brick and tiled roof extensions.

It is detached and lies in the grounds of Priory Farmhouse. It is surrounded on two sides by the garden, at the rear there is a paddock, which is home to the chickens and pigs and the pond for the ducks and geese.

The cottage is accessed down a track, which passes the Farmhouse, and Yard turns a corner and leads down a private track, which has a wooden gate to close it off from the farm.

There is ample parking for four cars and the drive has a teardrop turning around a large Oak tree. The drive is made of stone shingles and so it is not easy to push a wheelchair or for less able guests to walk on but you can park close to both the front and the back doors.

We access the cottage via the rear door as the front door leads directly into the lounge. There is parking at the rear of the cottage which means you can get fairly close to the back entrance.

There is a BBQ for guests use, please be mindful of the thatch.

Other information

This cottage is situated on a working beef farm. Guests should be aware that there will be noise from farm machinery from time to time.

There will also be occasions when animals need to be moved and will need to go past the cottage track and so some disruption to guests wishing to enter / exit may occur. This will be minimal.

If guests wish to view the farm please ask us and we will be happy to oblige. Children should not be allowed to stray outside of the parameter of the cottage for obvious reasons.

It is possible to walk down to the river Frome from the rear of the cottage and guests are welcome to walk along the riverbank. Please check first with the owners especially if you have a dog as there maybe cattle in the meadows.

The farm and cottage is in the small hamlet of East Holme. From the farm side access to the Hamlet is through the Ford by car or over the footbridge.

Guests using Satnav need to be aware that the Ford can rise to 5 foot and so need to consider arriving via Grange Road and Holme Lane rather than the turning into Meadows Lane from the B 3070.

Wareham is approximately 3 miles away and has two small supermarkets, a cinema and numerous coffee shops, pubs and restaurants.

There is a train station with frequent trains to Poole Bournemouth and Weymouth.

We are on a designated cycle route.

There is a comprehensive folder of local information at the cottage including public transport timetables, tourist attractions and leisure facilities.

We have WiFi throughout the cottage and good mobile phone reception.

We can provide farm produced meat and home grown vegetables in season.

A comfortable well-equipped cottage in peaceful surroundings. Owners are down the drive if needed but the cottage is very private with a wonderful garden.

A comfortable well-equipped cottage in peaceful surroundings. Owners are down the drive if needed but the cottage is very private with a wonderful garden. We didn't have children with us but it would be a fantastic place for children with the garden to explore and a paddock to play in. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

Really enjoyed staying in the cottage. Our 2 year old boy loved all the toys and the play equipment so much that he didn't want to go out! The groceries left by the owners was a very nice touch. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

It was a lovely cottage with short driving distance to many beautiful places. Perfect for small kids too as there is a beautiful garden with the trampoline, sand pit and swings. The kids loved seeing all the farm animals around too. We would like to go back some day. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

The Isle of Purbeck in Dorset

The Isle of Purbeck is a peninsular of land located in the South of Dorset and is famous for its sandy beaches, beautiful countryside and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. The sea surrounds Purbeck on three sides and nowhere is for from the coast. Apart from the small town of Swanage, the Isle of Purbeck is made up of small rural hamlets and traditional villages.

The North side of Purbeck is dominated by a wooded and heathland nature reserve and where it meets the water of Poole Harbour it attracts a great deal of bird life. The East coast of Purbeck is known for the two long sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage but also for the limestone pillars at Old Harry's Rocks. Along the South Coast is the start of the Jurassic Coast which is characterised by impressive coastal formations like Dancing Ledge and Durdle Door but also for quiet coves and peaceful beaches for swimming.

Much of Purbeck has been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the vast majority of Purbeck remains in the hands of nature. This is ideal for walkers and cyclists who are free to explore large areas of countryside and take in a number of wondrous locations.

The Isle of Purbeck has a number of events which take place throughout the year. To find out more about local events go to our Purbeck Events pages.
