Why not relax, unwind and enjoy peaceful and natural surroundings of Gorwell Farm, a family farm found in its own secret valley, just 2 miles from the beautiful Jurassic Coast.

Gorwell Farm is found in a pretty peaceful valley where you can escape everyday life and relax in one of our well equipped four star cottages before exploring Dorsets World Heritage Coastline, coastal towns and undulating countryside. Enjoy our stunning views and fresh air, our big skies and our unsurpassed network of footpaths. An ideal base for couples, groups of friends, families and larger groups of extended families. We are only a very short distance to the coast and within easy reach of many Dorset market towns and attractions. Enjoy exploring our countryside, either on foot, on two wheels or in four wheels and then come back to enjoy an evening in front of a roaring log fire in the cottage or a relax in the garden and enjoy the setting sun in our quiet valley.
