We spent four days in The Bothy in late April with our two Springer Spaniels and we were absolutely delighted with the warm welcome we received and the comfortable and well appointed cottage. Everything was of a very high standard (especially the home made cake awaiting our arrival together with bread and butter, milk, eggs, tea and coffee) with great...

We recently stayed for a week in Flint as a first break away with our three month old son and two dogs, and could not have chosen a better location. On first arrival it is clear to see the money and thought which has gone into the refurbished building,from the fabulous and well equipped kitchen to the patio with sumtuous...

It sounds like you all had a wonderful stay! Thank you so much for your kind review - I think your daily routine sounds like perfection. I've lived here for ten years and then novelty of a lap around the village with the kids and the dogs never looses its charm. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

We had previously visited Launceston Farm when they were running as a bed and breakfast. We are signed up to their email newsletter and so when we heard that they were now renting the whole house and would allow Hen parties we were thrilled. We got straight on the helpful Catherine and she confirmed that they had space the weekend...

Hello ladies! You have given us a lot of food for thought there. Thank you so much for your pointers on how we can make Launceston Farm an even better venue for Hens.

We stayed in the Flint a few weeks ago and had an amazing time. We loved the cozy feel of the cottage, the furnishings, the kitchen, the wood burning stove, the gorgeous copper bath. We were so glad to go somewhere so well kept that also allowed dogs. We took some great trips while we were there - to the...

Badbury Rings is a great spot for a dog walk. We love it there. I'm so glad you found us and that you all had a lovely time. We try to be as dog friendly as we can as we know that our guests don't want to leave anyone behind when they come away. Hopefully see you again soon.

We were a party of three generations celebrating 40/70th birthdays during a weekend in Feb. The house was impeccable, met all our needs from babies and toddlers upwards. We rebooked to come again shortly after leaving! I have no hesitation to recommend to anyone.

The perfect house for all 12 of us, three generations. The farm house was amazing, lots of space for our family Christmas holiday week. We have made fabulous memories around the kitchen table while cooking, eating and drinking. The gardens and play area where great for the little people and the dog to play.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lavish B&B just outside Blandford Forum in Dorset with organic farm at its heart. Stunning surroundings, farm sourced, organic breakfasts and sumptuous interiors. Six double ensuite rooms in the B&B, three with roll top baths, all with wifi access, flat screen TV, Fairtrade teas and coffees and home made biscuits. The Bothy, attached to the farmhouse, is a self-catering cottage for couples with outdoor bateau bath for soaks under the stars.Lounge by the heated outdoor pool in the summer months or ask Jimi for an organic farm tour. Take tea and home made cakes or a drink from the honesty bar in the walled gardens or by the open fire. Walk, cycle and ride out across the chalk downlands straight from the farm or head to the Jurassic Coast for some sea air and a hike along the South West Coastal Path.Evening meals are home made, farm sourced and deliciously rustic. Available Mondays and Fridays.As much as we love children, we are a romantic retreat for grown-ups and for that reason we can't accommodate children under the age of 12. ... more   less
