Luccombe Holidays is a collection of nine comfortable and well equipped self-catering cottages and the flexible accommodation is suitable for all groups and ages including the young and elderly.
Set in 650 acres of beautiful rolling downland in a private hidden valley, ¾ mile from the main road, Luccombe is a traditional family farm with nature and wildlife in abundance. There are wonderful walks in every direction as well as many secluded spots for guests to sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
Voted as one of the “10 Best UK Family Farmstays” by The Guardian, Luccombe offers fantastic facilities including a heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, gymnasium, games room, children's play area, tennis court, ping pong, garden games, a Fairy & Elf door hunt, lakeside BBQ and a star gazing platform with superb views.
Children can visit the animals including donkeys, ducks, sheep, chickens and goats.
There is a Riding School on the farm and for the adventurous, Clay Pigeon Shooting and Fly Fishing can also be arranged.
Luccombe is located within walking distance (10-15 minutes across the fields) of Milton Abbas which is a charming historic thatched village. Here you can find the 15th Century Milton Abbey, a post office, the fantastic farm shop, Steeptonbill, the lovely Tea Clipper Tea Rooms as well as an excellent family friendly pub serving gourmet meals, The Hambro Arms.
A ten-minute drive away you will find Blandford Forum, a small Georgian town on the banks of the River Stour. With stunning architecture, a variety of cafes, coffee shops, pubs and a wonderful market place, Blandford is also home to one of Dorset’s breweries, Hall & Woodhouse (famous for the award winning Badger beers).
Also nearby is Dorchester, world famous for its strong connection with the writer and poet Thomas Hardy. Here you can find excellent shopping facilities, restaurants, cafes, bars and bistros, museums, glorious gardens and river walks. En route to Dorset’s county town you will pass the Langham Wine Estate. With views of the vineyard and winery, it’s the perfect place to taste their award winning wines, have a bite to eat or enjoy a lazy afternoon cream tea.
