L'alloggio

This listing is for the Attic Suite which can sleep 2 adults and up to 4 children on mattress beds on the floor. There is also room for a travel cot.

Our attic has been converted to create a beautiful bedroom and bathroom, you have the whole floor to yourself. The large bathroom has a roll top bath and a shower. The bedroom has a king size bed, a large television, DVD player, and 2 chairs to create a seating area. There is plenty of space for mattress beds on the floor for children and a travel cot. We have a double and 2 single mattress beds and a travel cot you may borrow. Bedding is included for the mattress beds but not the travel cot.

There is a small fridge for you to use with fresh milk, tea and coffee facilities in the hallway.

We also have 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom with a very good shower on the first floor. The larger bedroom has an en suite bathroom, a king size bed, a TV and room for a cot or a single mattress bed for children. The second double bedroom has a beautiful bay window which can be taken with the larger room only as the 2 rooms share a bathroom. There is space for a cot and a single mattress bed suitable for children in the smaller room. To book these rooms please see the seperate listings on the page about me.

We have a large, enclosed, secluded garden with several tables and chairs. A field behind the garden for our chickens, ducks and guinea fowl. You can walk straight onto a network of foot paths from our field. I have a good map with directions showing all local walks and some further to local pubs.

Higher Lewell Farm House was originally built in the 1760’s and the date can be seen clearly written in brick on the front of the house. The house is situated at the top of Hardys Row on the outskirts of the village backing on to fields. Hardys Row was named after Thomas Hardy's father who built 6 houses on the row to house the poor of the village.

Wir wurden von Sophia herzlich empfangen. Sie ist sehr kommunikativ und hilfsbereit. Das alte Bauerhaus ist gemütlich eingerichtet und die Wohnung unter dem Dach (Schlafraum und Bad) ist sehr behaglich. Bei hohen Temperaturen im Sommer kann es etwas warm werden, aber das ist in dieser Region eher selten der Fall. Katzen und Hunde stören nicht, wer will kann mit ihnen spielen, für Kinder sicherlich ideal. Beim Frühstück geht die Gastgeberin auf jeden Wunsch ein. Der Ort ist perfekt, um Dorset, insbesondere die Jurassic Coast zu erkunden. Insgesamt: sehr empfehlenswert, insbesondere für Familien mit 1-2 Kindern.

Great location, beautiful area and wonderful hosts. Sophia and Mike made us feel very welcome and comfortable and offered advice on what to see around the area. The farm is a very nice place, clean and with very spacious rooms. I would highly recommend visiting. We will surely be back

Higher Lewell Farm is peaceful and secluded. Sophia and Mike are excellent hosts with Sophia's Breakfast (made with freshly laid eggs) being one of our highlights.. We stayed in the suite at the top of the house which was extremely clean and comfortable. I wished we could have stayed longer!

A fantastic place to stay. Sophia made us all feel very welcome and relaxed, the rooms were spotless and comfortable. The children loved visiting the chicken and ponies and collecting eggs in the morning and the breakfasts were delicious.

The perfect place for a weekend in Dorset! Very laid back and relaxed but nothing was too much trouble for Mike and Sophia. Our children loved the huge garden and friendly Labrador. There's a nice country pub 2 minutes' walk away, Dorchester and the coast are less than 20 minutes by car.

My husband Mike and I have lived in Dorset all our lives, both growing up on farms near Dorchester. We moved into the Farmhouse in 2008 and have completely fallen in love with it, the garden and our village. We have been running the B and B since 2011 and really enjoy it. We have met some really lovely people and both love having guests in the house, whether they come for parties, a rest or to explore Dorset. We have 2 very friendly dogs and 3 cats, who all love children, and lots of chickens and ducks. We both love animals, wildlife and nature. Mike is a landscape gardener and tree surgeon, I am studying to be a nutritionist and when I have time I volunteer for the Dorset Wildlife Trust and Compassionate Dorset.
