Welcome to Launceston Farm

A sumptuous home stay in Dorset for families and friends looking for a special place to celebrate together.



We really can’t wait to welcome you back from 4th July. Understanding that holidaying with us is going to be different for a while, we have put together our Stay Safe plan to address your concerns. We are working hard to create the same welcoming atmosphere and to make sure you have a wonderful holiday.

Take the lavish Georgian Farmhouse sleeping up to 12 and the two cosy cottages each sleeping 2 in any combination. All three properties are dog friendly and family friendly. There’s so much to keep everyone happy on the Farm with an indoor swimming pool and sauna, huge walled gardens and a play Orchard to explore as well as glorious country rambles from the farm gate. Head down to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast for the catch of the day or simply saunter down to the village pub for a local ale and a game of skittles.

Your Group


Whether it’s a family holiday, celebrating with friends or a corporate team get away, Launceston Farm  can be rented exclusively for your group.  The three property options give you plenty of flexibility as they can be rented individually – sleeping 2 to 12 – or as a group sleeping up to 16. With an indoor pool and sauna and acres of space for play, Launceston Farm is a stunning location with all the conveniences on site.  Catering can be organised to suit your party’s requirements; from “heat and eat” meals on arrival to fully waitered three course meals, fabulous feasts and sharing platters. With so much to do at Launceston Farm and in the local area, you simply won’t want to leave…


Dog friendly




Hen Do



Launceston Farm is an ideal base for exploring Dorset and Wiltshire. Shop for boutique fashion, antiques and country inspired home ware in nearby Salisbury, Shaftesbury and Sherborne. Sample treats from delis and farm shops stuffed with local delights or head for the sea; Poole Harbour and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast are just half an hour away.

Or leave the car behind and explore the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty from the farm gate.
