    > Surrounded by beautiful Dorset countryside, close to the Dorset Gap, this substantial 18th-century farmhouse stands a mile from the pretty hamlet of Plush with its delightful village inn. Retaining many original features, including ornamental fireplaces and splendid high ceilings, the property benefits from the addition of a games room and spa room in its cellar. With its own large, pretty walled garden, with lawned area and flower borders, it stands in the grounds of the owners’ 650-acre organic dairy farm; there are lovely walks from the doorstep amid the farmland.

    The Dorset Gap is nearby, for walks amid stunning scenery, while sandy bays and nature reserves can be found along the World Heritage Coastline just 18 miles away. Dorchester (Thomas Hardy’s Casterbridge) is within driving distance for a wide range of attractions, including a lively weekly market, with the beautiful Maiden Castle sure to be a highlight. A trip to the charming town of Cerne Abbas, with its Tudor architecture, and the nearby Cerne Giant are also a must on any itinerary. There are good golf courses in the vicinity and a selection of excellent inns and restaurants within 7 miles, this truly is an ideal location to suit a variety of holiday needs. Shop 5 miles.

    Armswell House (DQT) and The Stables (DXS) can be booked together to accommodate up to 32 guests.

    This is a great holiday rent especially for large families. We rent every year for approximately 15 people and this is one of the best by far. Would certainly recommend it and everyone at the farm was most helpful and friendly. Great cake and flowers on our arrival. Will definitely go back again

    The equipment was top notch. I went with 8 adults and 5 children and they had a great time. We couldn't stay outside though cos the farm smell was too much! Which is the only reason I didn't give it 10. But there's not much they can do about that! We could still smell it when we got home.

    The house is on a working farm and in a very peaceful spot. The kitchen could do with a few time saving electric gadgets, but overall was well equipped. We had a great stay.

    Spacious comfortable Victorian Hunting Lodge, we immediately felt at home. Plenty of rooms for all the family. Being adjacent to the farm - the children found much to explore . The owner’s family were very patient with our youngsters and explained so much about a working farm. It was a very relaxing break for all 15 of us. Even the dogs were welcome. Surrounding countryside breathtaking, many walks from the house- you will hardly meet anyone. We particularly enjoyed the Brace of Pheasants on several occasions, some even walked there.

    We visited as a party of 9 wanting a central location for exploring southern Dorset for a week. Armswell House is large, comfortable, well equipped and secluded in the countryside a few miles north of Dorchester. The jacuzzi and table tennis table were a bonus, as well as the welcoming cake on our arrival.

    Armswell House is on an organic working dairy farm which is great for the children with a 320 herd of dairy cows, calves and piglets. There are plenty of walks direct from the front door and the 7 bedrooms, two lounges, a dining room and a large farmhouse kitchen mean there is plenty of room for the largest of families. We have been renting cottages for a family get together at Christmas for the last 5 years and Armswell house was voted as the best so far. The Brace of Pheasants in nearby Plush is an excellent, dog friendly, public house with great food.

    Lovely, large and clean property for our group of hens. The hot tub was a fab added extra and the games room made a perfect party room ??

    Fabulous location, house and welcome experience. Only downside is the number of flys around due to being located on a dairy farm.
