Brewery Farm: Early morning at Brewery Farm

General

  • Quiet farm site surrounded by footpaths in the Dorset village of Ansty
  • Half an hour's drive from Weymouth, Poole and the Jurassic Coast
  • Farm shop on site; pub with food next door

They might not make beer at Brewery Farm, but this fab Dorset site serves up good times in grand surrounds, and there's a pub right next door for good measure…

The said hostelry keeps the celebrated ales of the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery, who began their operation right here in the village of Ansty in the 18th century… and who instantly profited from a contract to supply beer to the army camped hereabouts waiting to see off Napoleon’s fleet.

If you’re into history, there’s lots of it to be supped and savoured in the area; same goes for walks, beaches, boat rides… the whole lot of it easily accessible from a berth on this peaceful and friendly site.

Facilities include a shop, selling the farm’s own produce; if you want to grill up an alfresco feast, go ahead – barbecues are permitted. The suitably ancient and rural inn over the road serves fresh locally sourced food as well.

Fancy exploring the area slowly? Ask the team to point you towards the network of country footpaths, through some of Dorset’s finest countryside.

    How rural it was

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It is disappointing to see that you felt our site was too rural. 99% of our guests love the fact we are in beautiful countryside and in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Now we have Google Earth at our disposal it is easy to have a look at location before making a trip. I also feel that 4/10 for customer service is harsh when we pride ourselves in making people feel welcome - as you will read in numerous other reviews on Pitchup.

    Everything really. Muck spreading on the neighbouring field was an olifactory delight but not a real complaint. Lovely, friendly place, on-site farm shop and an excellent pub no more than fifty metres away. Booklet of local walks ranging from two to seven miles was very helpful.9

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to review our site and we are pleased you enjoyed the peace and quiet. So sorry you felt that the customer service did reach expectations however. It is something we pride ourselves in and I would have been only too pleased to help should you have had queries - you only needed to ask. It is hard to get the balance right - some people like to be left alone to enjoy their break and some like to interact. We do have our walking book which gives you a lot of information about Ansty and its history.

Local attractions

If beaches are your bag, you’ve hit the big time here as the Jurassic Coast is studded not just with fossils but also sandy coves and rocky inlets: Lulworth Cove is a 40-minute drive away, and if you fancy something wilder, Winspit beach is accessible only by a footpath from Worth Matravers (45 minutes).

Another fine way to explore the coast is to make for Weymouth or Poole, both half an hour away, for a boat cruise. Both towns are crammed with further family-friendly attractions including funfairs and an aquarium in Weymouth, and slides and chutes and waterfalls at Poole’s Splashdown waterpark. Monkey World and the Tank Museum are also around half an hour away.

For an easy way to see the chalk hills and valleys of inland Dorset, take a seat on the Swanage Railway (50 minutes) for steam rides between the coast and Corfe Castle (40 minutes by car). The castle is well worth clambering over; if anyone’s missing the water, make for the nearby Dorset Waterpark for floating inflatable obstacle courses in a wooded lakeland setting.

For another day out with a difference, the graceful residents of Abbotsbury Swannery (45 minutes) were once kept by local monks for the purposes of scoffing at banquets. You can now visit the country's only nesting colony of mute swans and feed them, as well as get lost in the maze, hurtle about the adventure playground and roam the nearby subtropical gardens.

Must see

  • Hardy's Birthplace (7.3 miles)
  • The Tank Museum (10.1 miles)
  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (10.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Hardy's Cottage (7.4 miles)
