Home Farm Shop & Tearoom
If you feel that England’s rural idyll has long been lost, a visit to Home Farm Shop & Tearoom will help you rediscover it, as at the end of a dusty farm track lies a pastoral delight. The former barn with its high ceilings has been transformed into an airy farm shop and dining room, where produce is farmed or made locally and is impressively displayed on an enormous dresser made from a single piece of wood. Abigail’s Kitchen occupies a separate space in what once was a ﬁeld shelter for horses, but is now dedicated to serving afternoon teas in vintage china.
Finally, two large, perfectly manicured ﬁelds are designated for glamping, with yurts and bell tents offering uninterrupted views of Dorset’s splendid countryside. Whilst catering for families as well as hen parties and weddings, the owners thoughtfully ensure that the two never clash, and a special yurt is set apart from the rest to ensure privacy for the overnighting bride and groom. With a drinks license and a varied menu offering everything from a traditional cooked breakfast to light lunches, afternoon teas, a specials board that changes daily and a diverse children’s menu, Home Farm caters to today’s modern demands while maintaining its original farming roots. The venue boasts a spacious outside seating area. When it’s sunny, there’s no better spot in which to enjoy the peace and quiet of the farmland with a drink or snack of your choice.
