    “The reason I booked the property is the paddock for the dogs.”

    The property is very cute and location peaceful and well linked to lovely parts of the world. The dogs liked exploring the paddock esp useful as it was too hot to walk them. The seat in the paddock is pretty much unusable as foliage has overgrown that area which meant biting insects were very close by. We found a spot to put a beach towel down to sit whilst the doggos went exploring, though. The garden is a really good size - the large thistle on the patio should be removed and the gate into ...

    The property is very cute and location peaceful and well linked to lovely parts of the world. The dogs liked exploring the paddock esp useful as it was too hot to walk them. The seat in the paddock is pretty much unusable as foliage has overgrown that area which meant biting insects were very close by. We found a spot to put a beach towel down to sit whilst the doggos went exploring, though. The garden is a really good size - the large thistle on the patio should be removed and the gate into the property has dropped on its hinges, so you have to be careful in closing it - sadly our dogs got out one day, yet it's a simple job to sort. The grey info book was useful, but it looked like a page of beaches was missing. Also the wifi has parental controls which was unwelcome. The shower door doesn't fit properly and I spent c2 hours dealing with a flood, thinking the shower was busted when maintenance or cubicle replacement is needed. Sadly it looks like mould is appearing in places too, which is an easy fix. There were spiders and cobwebs in virtually every corner, so a deeper clean is suggested. Towels were fluffy and abundant. Beds were comfy. General kitchen facilities were good, but a few more larger glasses would have been useful. Also, there's no large bin in the kitchen so you end up using a propped up liner which is open and attracted flies and wasps. The lounge smelt doggie. We weren't massively bothered by it as we spent little time at the property, but others might be. We enjoyed our stay but I can't offer 5 stars as I feel the property needs more tlc.

The property

Liz and Ian would be delighted to welcome you to The Granary at Whetley Farm near Beaminster. The Dairy and the Granary are set in a shared enclosed courtyard of Whetley Farm, a classic 17th century Dorset listed stone farmhouse set in a beautiful garden.

To ensure safe distancing and separation of Guests, a temporary fence has been erected across the courtyard so each cottage has its own safe and secure garden along with a private patio.

The recently renovated cottages offer peace and quiet and easy access to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and the many attractions of West Dorset, East Devon and South Somerset.

Each cottage has its own secluded, private patio, with patio chairs, table and parasol where guests can sit and enjoy the peace and fresh air whilst young children and dogs can play safely.

Being all on one level, the properties are particularly suitable for the less able.

A particular favourite with all our guests and their dogs is our two-acre woodland and wildflower meadow where you are free to wander at any time.

It is enclosed by deer fencing so your dogs can be let off the lead and explore whilst you wander the mown paths or sit on one of the seats and watch the butterflies and birds.

Whetley Farm is just three quarters of a mile from Mosterton with its very well stocked village shop with in store bakery and its popular village pub which serves a great selection of good food and local beers.

The historic market town of Beaminster is only two and a half miles south of Whetley Farm, with excellent independent shops, cafes and pubs, museum and an annual festival.

From wonderful walking, excellent pubs, fossil hunting and fishing, historic houses, gardens, shops, galleries and museums, stately homes and places such as Bridport, Dorchester and Sherborne all within easy reach you will be spoilt for choice of places to explore and things to do. Whetley Farm is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with views of Lewesdon Hill, the highest point in Dorset, and is surrounded by renowned walking areas such as Beaminster Downs, Marshwood Vale, Lewesdon Hill, Pilsden Pen, Powerstock Forest, and Eggardon Hill.

For seaside visits the choice is yours, fossil laden Charmouth, beautiful Lyme Regis, lively West Bay, (Broadchurch) golden sands at Weymouth, wonderful food at Hive Beach, fishing and boat rides, the South Coast path to follow and Golden Cap to climb.

Ian and Liz place great emphasis on ensuring you will be very well looked after during your stay.

If you need help deciding where to go, what to do or where to walk Liz and Ian would be happy to advise and can lend you walking maps.

On arrival you will find freshly cut garden flowers, and a welcome tray with special touches including homemade biscuits, Dorset tea, fresh eggs from the hens in the orchard, a selection of Dorset Cereals and doggy treats.

In the right season you may well be treated to freshly picked salad leaves, herbs, soft fruit and vegetables from their veggie garden.

Children are welcome to help feed the chickens and collect the eggs by arrangement.

If you stay here over Xmas or the New Year you will be welcomed with a tree, decorations and local Xmas goodies!
