Discover Dorset’s stunning countryside and coast from this cosy 18th century farmhouse with its own spa room.

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.

    Absolutely fantastic! The house was spotless, spacious, and very comfortable. We had a wonderful stay and everyone enjoyed themselves a lot. Would recommend to anyone.

    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.

    Beautiful, relaxing, perfect for family groups. Be aware the sofa beds are not really for two adults, they would be perfect for children.

    A lovely holiday home, enjoyed by all the family. 8 adults and 7 children aged 4 to 16 had a good time in this lovely farmhouse, with great walks and animals to see and feed.

    Lovely house and host. The hot tub downstairs wasn't the most luxurious - it would have been nice to see the stars and be outside. But the property itself was lovely, kitchen well equipped. I only felt bad that we couldn't vacuum properly on the day we left as the two Dysons were a bit past their prime and didn't do much! I can recommend a vineyard tour at Langhams if you can convince someone to drive. Lunch at the Brace of Pheasants was also fab. Highly recommended.
