“Very peaceful in pretty surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

You couldn't meet a more friendly couple than your hosts, Carol and Graham. Their characterful cottage is surrounded by a pretty garden, and the surrounding region has lots of interest. Visits to the coast and inland beauty spots are a must.

What a wonderful place and Carol and Graham were so welcoming. An idyllic setting in a garden overflowing with flowers. It was so fabulous to see the deer come right up to the house to be fed by Carol. Lovely comfy bedroom - fabulous bed- and an out of the world breakfast for a vegetarian and a vegan!! What a refreshing change!!
Fabulous furnishings and lovely cosy lounge with the log burner. Fabulous to have the use of a fridge by the front door as well.
It was so great that our dog was also made so welcome.
A really unique and very enjoyable experience.

Our second visit to Botany Farmhouse, this time with son, daughter-in-law and grandson. We all had a great stay, lovely comfy beds and a breakfast to die for. If you like homely and cosy this is the place for you. Very peaceful garden and if you're lucky you may get a glimpse of a deer. You have your own front door and a lovely cool (in summer) lounge with sofas and chairs and when it is cooler Carol lights the log burner. Wonderful hospitality!! We shall be back.

We had a wonderful weekend here with Carol and Graham. Our room was comfortable and charming and it was wonderful to snuggle up in front of the log burner at the end of the evening. The garden is amazing with many birds and the deer that visited daily. Carol and Graham were so friendly and welcoming. It was like staying with friends and Carol does the best breakfasts ever! We are looking forward to going back.

We stayed last year whilst visiting Camp Bestival and I have been meaning to submit a review.

We booked both rooms and so it felt we had hired a beautiful cottage as there is a separate entrance and lounge area.

The owners are wonderful, warm, friendly and have a fantastic approach, really really made us feel welcome.

Breakfasts are amazing - each morning we opened the breakfast room door to an Alladins cave of amazing delights.

Would recommend a stay here , the whole place is gorgeous and eclectic and such amazing value.

Our first visit certainly won't be our last. I was in desperate need of a relaxing break, which was always going to be a challenge as I was travelling with my delightful but Autistic daughter, I couldn't have found a better place. Carol and Graham welcome you in with tea and homemade biscuits and a roaring log fire and that kind of sets the tone for your stay. Their home is absolutely enchanting - I'm not sure if I have felt at home in someone else's house more, than in their cosy lounge. The bedrooms are an absolute delight, you come back to find the lamps lit and the curtains drawn. Carol and Graham were very attentive (without being intrusive, and like Paul H offered to fix my broken headlamp!). The breakfasts were brilliant and their love of cooking and entertaining shines through ( I have added a recipe to my book).
The Farmhouse is in a great spot and the deer in the garden a big bonus (whilst I was packing Carol took Maya out to see if the deer were there to say goodbye, they weren't so she showed her photos on the computer instead). Location wise - you are well placed to visit many different attractions and beauty spots, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and the village Tyneham (requestionned for the war in 1943 and frozen in time) are a short drive and a hefty walk away. Monkey World and Bovington Tank museum are little further but worth a visit. We loved Corfe Castle and returned there to go on the Swanage steam train. We finished our visit to an absolute must-do Arne Woods a RSPB reserve that have breath-taking views over to Brownseas Island and it supports a variety of wildlife not just birds, but deer, squirrels and foxes. Next visit we will go to Brownsea Island.
On my return I immediately called friends and family to recommend Botany Farmhouse, which I do unreservedly.
Thank-you for the additional support and kindness you offered.
Katy

We have stayed at Botany Farmhouse numerous times over the last 22 years and can't rate it highly enough. The owners go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful stay and the food is first class - don't bother eating out, just ask Carol to cook for you! And don't worry about lunch, you won't need it after breakfast!
The bedrooms are delightful and guests have their own separate entrance and lounge, with roaring fire whenever needed.
An ideal location away from the bustle but close enough to explore Purbeck - ideal base for cycling or walking holidays or riding at the local stables.
