    A stunning house in a rural location. The house was well equipped and provide our family of 18 with the perfect space to celebrate a special birthday. On arrival we were met with beautiful flowers and a freshly baked cake! Everything was perfect and the kids loved saving the scraps to feed the pigs in the morning. We had a lovely meal at The Brace of Pheasants who catered well for our group size. If you’re looking for a rural retreat with a hot tub and games room this is perfect!

    We celebrated a family Christmas here in Feb 2020, it was absolutely amazing, age range was from 89 down to 2 years and 2 puppies too, everyone had a fabulous time, we went for some lovely walks and milked the cows, we had a storm on the Sunday so used this excuse to hibernate and use the hot tub and pool table and table tennis. The fresh flowers and homemade cake were a lovely touch too. Would definitely recommend 😊

    Armswell is wonderful - our sixth autumn stay with friends. I've given the location and local amenities slightly lower scores only because we haven't explored all that much, just walks immediately around the farm, which are lovely. It's a house that's great to spend time in, plenty of space, warm, private, and so comfortable. Everything is thoughtfully organised - the wood store just outside the door, the hose for muddy boots, kindling and firelighters provided for the wood-burner, lots of spare towels. The kitchen is well-equipped with plenty of storage and fridge/freezer space - vital if you're a big group. We loved the owls! Thank you, Julie, for the home-made cake to welcome us every year. We'll be back again.

    Fantastic house, loads of space and great having indoor hot tub. Kitchen and all utensils were superb, more than enough plates, glasses and cutlery, all of high standard. Beds really comfy, bathrooms all spotless. Being on Dairy farm we were lucky to have views of cows from living room Windows. The owner and staff were really friendly and provided us with lots of information about the farm. Great location for exploring all Dorset has to offer.

    A beautiful house ideal for our large family group. Tons of space for the children and adults. Games and hot tub in the basement well used. Plenty of equipment in the kitchen and space for us all to eat together. The children loved visiting the cows and a great walk to the pub for the adults. The house was warm and cosy and the beds really comfortable. Just ideal for all the family.

    Lovely remote country setting literally on a dairy farm! Beautiful scenery, plenty of space in the house. Facilities very nice with plenty of pots and pans for cooking in. Few nearby pubs too well worth a visit.

    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
