About Dorset Forest Garden

NearbyRight from the farm gate there's an extensive networks of footpaths and bridleways and each hut has its own map to help you explore. From Eggardon Hill (one of the finest views of any hill fort in the county) to Golden Cap (the highest cliff on the south coast), the guide in your hut has loads of great options. The farm is just a few miles from Hooke Park, the home of the Architectural Association and a great place for a shady woodland walk to enjoy some cutting edge wooden structures. On the coast, West Bay is 9 miles away – half way between Chesil Beach and Lyme Regis. For Thomas Hardy aficionados, Beaminster (Emminister) is part of the Hardy trail, which includes Thomas Hardy's Cottage (01305 262366) in Dorchester.
Food & DrinkThe farm often has seasonal food available to cook on the BBQ. The Red Lion (01308 862364), just down the road in Beaminster, is a firm favourite, with a great chef using locally-sourced ingredients. The Acorn (01935 83228) in Evershot is another great gastro pub and a gold winner in the Dorset Tourism Award. The Hive Beach Café (01308 897070) at Burton Bradstock is loved by locals and visitors and has freshly caught seafood to enjoy by the beach. For shops, Washingpool Farm Shop (01308 459549) in Bridport sells a wide selection of produce from local farms, Samways Fishmongers (01308 424496) in West Bay is a great place to get your fresh local fish and seafood, and Beaminster has both a fruit and veg shop and a butcher, plus a small supermarket.
