Dewflock Farm is a working farm where families can have a safe and scenic setting from which to explore the Dorset countryside and the Jurassic Coast while having a base that offers a safe and interesting environment. Owner Verity is always on hand if guests have any queries or problems.
The site has been up so guests can have a bit of luxury among an outdoor lifestyle, where lambs roam about and where sheep and cattle live in neighbouring fields. As livestock farmers, Verity and her family produce their own beef, lamb and pork so you can order organic meat to be delivered to your accommodation.
A converted pig barn with wifi access, seating a TV and a jukebox was added as a family room in 2016. 4x4 driving experiences and Segway rides can also be offered at the farm for an additional fee.
As this is a working farm with livestock, unfortunately dogs can't be permitted on site.

From the Dorchester bypass, take the Weymouth exit and after 400 meters take the left turning, signposted Winterborne Herringston. You will find Dewflock just after the bridge on the right. Drive over the watermeadows (avoiding any sleeping bulls on the track) and come to the farmhouse to meet the owners.
Buses stop a 10-minute walk from the camping fields, and two train stations are a 5-minute drive from the site. Owners can pick you up from the station, please use the 'special requests' box on your booking form to inform them if you need one.
Dorchester a five-minute drive away has plenty of places to eat out, drink, and visit museums, cinemas and public gardens where events are put on throughout the summer months. New development Brewery Square has a wide range of eateries to pick from.
Weymouth is seven miles away accessible via the bypass, to offer a quick route to a scenic beach and typical seaside town. Again, a large number of restaurants and pubs are in town.
The farm is surrounded by the Jurassic Coast: go fossil hunting down the road at Charmouth or at Kimmeridge Bay.
For some physical activity, visit the various horse riding centres of the region, or go to the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy at Portland, where there are plenty of courses available for all abilities. Verity and team know the area well and will happily suggest other activities and attractions based on your interests.
