Gorwell Farm Holiday Cottage Accommodation
Gorwell is a family-run farm, ideally positioned in its own secret wooded valley. It is just two miles from Chesil Beach in West Dorset, on England's south coast.
We have the perfect solution for those wishing for a peaceful, relaxing holiday, without wanting to be too far from the comforts of home.
We offer a range of affordable self-catering accommodation for groups of all sizes: three barn conversion cottages, two Victorian stone cottages, and a detached four bedroom house.

Outside, each has quality garden furniture in its own fenced garden with gas barbeques available.

With views of wonderful sunsets down the valley, the south-west facing garden is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a drink or an evening barbecue.

Out and About
There never was a finer county, declared Charles II, and we like to think we have a special corner of that county which we are very pleased to share with you..
As you meander along the flower-banked lanes of rural West Dorset, a mile from the coast you turn into an unmarked lane 800ft above sea level.
The views are wonderful, look out over Chesil beach and the unique West Dorset coastline, east towards Weymouth and Portland where on a clear day you can see the Bill, or west where you can see Golden Cap, the highest cliff in Dorset, and beyond to Lyme Regis.
Continue on for about a mile and look out for birds, wildlife and wildflowers in the woods and on the grass verges. Nature-lovers will marvel at the richness of this unspoilt area. This is where you will find Gorwell Farm, nestled in its own secluded valley.
Gorwell is situated two miles from Chesil Beach, and only 1.5 miles from the historical village of Abbotsbury, famous for its Swannery, Tithe Barn and Sub-Tropical gardens.
We are nine miles from three local centres: Dorset's county town, Dorchester, famous for its Thomas Hardy connections, Judge Jeffries, the Tolpuddle Martyrs and the Iron Age hillfort of Maiden Castle.
Weymouth, an archetypal Edwardian seaside town with an expanse of seafront, a wonderful sandy beach and safe, shallow water in the bay. Bridport, a market town famous for its fishing and harbour at West Bay, the home of 'Harbour Lights'.
We are only half an hour from Lyme Regis with its world famous Cobb and Sherborne, famous for its Abbey and castles. Also within easy reach is Wimborne and its craft markets and antiques.
