My husband and myself went to look at this site to book it for my two sons and their families next spring. We were really impressed with the place. We were shown round by one of the owners. We booked it immediately. It was so tranquil and "familyfied". I have 3 young grandsons who will absolutely adore exploring. It's full... More

Stayed back in February but forgot to review. This place is too good not to review! Spacious accommodation in a lovely setting. Lounge/dining room well equipped and plenty of room for the huge dining table which was perfect for breakfast and dinner. Everything you need in the kitchen, and the bedrooms are great too. Bunk beds in one room, a... More

Brilliant! We stayed in one of the new Shepherds Huts (Caroline) and it was amazing. Such an ingenious use of space and all modern facilities. Beautiful setting in fields at the back. There is a swimming pool and games room and lovely grounds to walk around. Great for children-our little girl loved roaming around ( looking for the very patient... More

Our second visit, this time for 3 nights in one of Caroline's new shepherd's huts! Great fun, everything you would want, including fab power shower. Location is great for a variety of day trips out, whether it be the coast, or inland. We shall no doubt be returning next year, thanks Caroline and family!

Returned again to this great place, just outside Dorchester and so close to all the wonderful places nearby. Caroline and team made us very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. So peaceful and quiet, such a relaxing place. We will be returning again next year!

Wow! What a wonderful, wonderful place. I can't praise it enough, there is literally nothing missing! We wanted a break away with our 2 dogs and our 8month old daughter, somewhere with facilities for all. I found Lancombe online and booked via Caroline who couldn't have been more helpful! On arrival we were so impressed with the attention to detail... More
