Tel: 07881 563571
Peaceful Hobby Farm Campsite is set in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an abundance of footpaths for walking. There is a lake in the grounds in which you can fish or, if you prefer, you can just relax in the adults-only site with a low-key atmosphere, or walk the 500 yards to the nearest pub just up the country lane. The site’s also a 10-minute drive to the famous fossil beach in Charmouth (for fossil hunting) and footpaths connecting to the coast from here mean you can roam on down through the green countryside in about an hour and a quarter. You an bring your dog too as dogs are welcome at Hobby Farm. For beaches with a bit of bustle, West Bay and Lyme Regis’ restaurants, bars and boutiques are less than a 10-minute drive. A supermarket’s less than a 15-minute drive for alfresco cooking and a farm shop within a mile so excellent for a working up an appetite to get your breakfast provisions.
Total rates, from Sat 26 Oct 2019, to Tue 29 Oct 2019, for 3 nights.

Easy booking on Hobby Farm website. Tom was great and really friendly and helpful. The shepherd's hut Foxes Den was just what we wanted and overlooking the pond. We look forward to coming back when Tom's done the deck and other things we chatted about. We had a bbq and fire pit supplied for chilly evenings. Beautiful tranquil countryside for a get away break from the world but with everything a short car ride away or a 10mins walk to the nice local pub. Must see places Lyme Regis, Bridport on market day Wednesday and Charmouth. West Bay also has a fabulous array of little eating places overlooking the fishing boats. The local farm shop on the A35 just as you turn down to Hobby Farm has the most amazing view to the sea whilst you eat ice cream from a big selection of flavours.

Lovely site with good walks and not far from dramatic coastline.

Tips:

Excellent walk via Hell Lane to the Illchester Arms is well worth the effort as the food is great. The nearby Shaved Cross also serve fantastic food . If you are walking, be warned that some local footpaths are very overgrown; advice is to stick to the bridleways and byways.

This campsite is a slice of heaven and we loved it so much upon our first visit in July that we returned in September and will do so again next year. The setting is so idyllic that rather than just using the site as a base from which to explore we actually enjoyed just being on the site itself and the local walks. Tom is incredibly helpful and accommodating and a source of great local knowledge. The five bells pub within walking distance is perfect and serves great value for money food. The only thing I would change is the location of the washing up facilities so that they are not adjoining the toilet and a freezer for ice blocks would be useful. All in all one of the best sites we have stayed at.

Tips:

This site is perfectly located for exploring not only Dorset but Somerset and Devon too. Local walks are well signposted and the local pub is great value for money for really good pub grub. The beaches at Seatown and Eype are wonderful. At Eype (if driving, park at the first car park encountered by the shop and holiday park as much cheaper than the sea front car park and only a 3 min walk to the beach. Walking up the headland is a must not only for the views but also to watch the parasailers taking off and landing.

Great hosts. Made sure we had all we needed but left us to to it. Location is beautiful and so quiet. Just what we needed. The dogs loved it too. Just that the steps to the shepherds hut could do with looking at as very steep but I know they said they were moving it soon so that may be the intention. Had a lovely stay and would definitely return and recommend. Thank you

Tips:

Seatown is lovely for the beach and a walk. The local pub The Five Bells was warm and welcoming to us and the dogs. Food was basic but tasty.

We had our BEST ever camping experience at Hobby Farm, the beauty and tranquility is outstanding and we loved our 5 night stay so much, that we booked to go back again in 2 weeks time, thank you Tom, you have created an amazing space, we felt so welcome and relaxed, and really enjoyed being able to see the amazing stars while sitting around the campfire.

Tips:

The village fete on the last bank holiday in Aug is a must, had lots of fun playing splat the rat and drinking beer. For deep sea fishing, book with Harry May at Lyme Regis, as there is too much seaweed in Aug fishing on the beaches nearby and so hooks tend to snag and tackle gets lost. Seatown is the place to go for great sunbathing, swimming in the sea with a fabulous pub that serve great food and an amazing range of drinks with outdoor seating near to and overlooking the sea and beach, there is also a grassed area to sit if you don’t like sand and the river which runs into the sea is perfect for paddle boarding and canoeing. For walks I recommend buying an ordnance survey map of the area as amazing walks are in abundance, there is so much to do in the area, so need to pick out what you prefer from tourist information

We really loved Hobby farm. We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay, it was quiet and yet not far from the coast and towns to go for walks/activities. The bathroom and shower were always clean and stocked. It was useful to have the charging point though there is only 1 to share between campers. The mini fridge was also useful. Overall we would definitely recommend Hobby farm and hope to be back!

We went to Hobby Farm for a weekend away from London and wanted something tranquil and picturesque, and that was definitely what we found. We opened the door to the shepherd's hut the first morning and the view was stunning and the surroundings were incredible. We used the BBQ and the burner in the hut when it got chilly at night, and the whole experience was idyllic. The hut was brilliantly done and quite cottage-y inside which added a really nice touch, too. We'll stay again!

Tips:

Stop into the farm shop just along the road. Try Seatown for the pub by the water (great food), and pick up some coal/wood for the burner for a perfect evening chilling at the hut!
