We had our family Christmas there so we could all get togeather. All 8 off us had an amazing time. Would recomend to any one. Dont expect to much internet use as the signal is week but we didn't have time to use it much as we utilised the indoor pool. We were given a small hamper when we arrived with a beautiful home made cake and other goodies. Would definately go again. Thank you to Launceston Farm for helping us celebrate our Christmas in style.

Thank you so much for choosing us for your Christmas celebration. It's such a special time of year for families so I am thrilled to hear we ticked all your boxes! I agree, our internet provision is not as good as it should be. We are on the waiting list for Super Fast Broadband which we have been assured will be arriving in the Tarrant Valley by the end of 2017. So hopefully if you do come to see us again, that will be better!

Our 2nd visit celebrated our wedding anniversary, the addition of the pool enhanced the visit.
We could not resist the outdoor bath again and no matter how cold having a soak under the sky is wonderful difficult to appreciate but to be recommended. We did not discover the local walks apart from the Pub but stunning views just a short drive away included the common nr. Milton Abbas airfield. And the other stunner is Badbury Rings followed by The Anchor in Shapwick.
Flint did not let us down as wonderful as before.w

Those are some of our absolute favourite walks in the area - particularly the Airfield and Fontmell Down. I'm so glad you enjoyed your wedding anniversary celebrations and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Myself and my wife stayed in 'Flint' for the last 3 nights and I have to say it exceeded our expectations by a long long way.
In a quiet idyllic location if you are looking for a relaxing country break then this is by far the best we have ever been too.

We were looking to book at the last minute and found Launcestion Farm online and within a few hours we had spoken to Sarah and the cottage was booked for the next day.

We brought our dogs with us and they were in second heaven, with a wonderful log burning fire (everything you need is provided) and underfloor heating they quite happily lounged around while the temperatures outside plummeted.

The welcome pack which was left out for us was lovely, some eggs, fresh milk, freshly baked bread and a fruit cake. We honestly didn't expect any of that and it was a lovely surprise.

Surrounded by countryside there are plenty of places to walk your dog. I thoroughly recommend bringing some wellies with you as it can obviously get muddy around the fields. You can walk to the lovely Langton Arms pub which is around 10 minutes away but if you are walking in the evening then bring a torch with you as much as to be seen as to see, the lanes get very dark and cars can come round pretty quickly.

If you are feeling brave then you can take a outdoor bath (completely secluded) although I have to admit the temperature dropped and we didn't brave it this time. However the rainfall shower in the bathroom more than made up for it.

The bedroom was very large and the bed is incredibly comfortable and I challenge anyone to not have a good nights sleep in their. In the morning you will see the cows being moved from the fields to the barn and it is quite enjoyable to watch.

We didn't have a chance to visit the farm and its shop but we most certainly will next time. We will certainly be coming back, hopefully in time to come if we can get a big enough group together then we would love to stay in the farmhouse opposite which looks absolutely stunning.

Thank you for letting us rent this beautiful cottage and we look forward to coming again soon.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It sounds like you made the most of everything Launceston Farm has to offer. Top tip on the wellies. I will make sure I add it to the list of things to bring. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Booked as a last minute overnight on the way to the South coast we didn't know what to expect and were really chuffed to find a fantastic farmhouse with massive rooms, a massive, comfortable bed and a huge bathroom with a stand alone bath, great shower, a choice of magazines and really nice shampoos, lotions and bits and pieces. Sarah, the owner, was a delight a served a filling breakfast of locally sourced eggs, bacon, sausage and black pudding. Chickens, sheep, cows and guinea fowl roam free on the lawn. The views are lovely over rolling Dorset hills but it is being changed to a rental for large groups. If you are a large group, take a look. If you are after bed and breakfast, get in quick.

We were there for 2 nights (Parsonage) in order to go to Great Dorset Steam Fair, which this B&B is very convenient for. Lovely location, pretty villages, smashing farmhouse and grounds. Very warm welcome and we were looked after very well. Thank you. Sorry to hear it will not be a B&B after October (but self catering accommodation will be available to the cottages and main farm house).
