About Us

The Perfect Place...

Owned by Terry Ockenden and Vicky Spooner, is a small farm of permanent pasture used to grow fodder.

The farm’s old dairy, out of its original use since the 1960s, has been carefully converted into luxury farmstay holiday cottages – keeping the character of the building intact. The cottages are situated in the centre of the farm yard, with excellent views across the fields, and provide the perfect base for a quiet Dorset retreat.

Animals on the farm include; one rare breed Highland Pony “Fleetmead Euan” and ex-dressage horse “Ace”, Cori the ex-race horse, two cats (Boots and Bubbles) and a flock of hens looked after by the cockerells (Matt, Luke and Craig). Equine accommodation is also available, both stabling and turnout.

The farmstay holiday cottages are situated approximately 5 miles from Wimborne and are ideally located in an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) on the edge of the hamlet of Uppington, near Hinton Martell. On a clear day we are privileged with views across West Dorset and the Isle of Wight!

How to Find Us

As if you needed more reason to stay in our luxury self catering holiday cottages in beautiful Dorset – here’s a few of the reasons we think our Wimborne holiday cottages offer the perfect base for a self catering holiday in Dorset.

Wimborne, in addition to being a beautiful little market town which draws thousands of visitors each year in its own right, is a perfect location to explore Dorset.

We believe that the standards we offer are simply the only way to do things, but we’re delighted that our standards are recognised by Enjoy England, in a way which helps you be sure that your choice of holiday cottages is the right one.
