We’ve made the heartbreaking decision to close until the country is safer for travel. For now we all need to do our bit to stop the spread of Covid-19 and stay at home. It’s not easy to say goodbye to hosting guests during some of our favourite times of year on the farm but we know it is for the best.
Spring is one of our favourite times of the year. Graston Farm is the perfect spot to shrug off winter and welcome the longer days and warmer sun. There are plenty of ways to soak up the joys of Spring on the farm; from feeding the baby calves and lambs to exploring bluebell-filled valleys and signs of new life in the fields and rivers on our doorstep. Spring also welcomes a flutter of local events, perfect for those thinking about Easter holidays and Spring staycations.

We have plenty of visitors during the winter, attracted by the wonderful countryside, seaside, walks, wildlife and ambience of the Jurassic coast. There are lots of things to do around West Dorset in the winter time, without the busyness of the summer guests.
We had a wonderful display of the Wolf Moon at Graston Farm last evening. Conditions were perfect. In the photo you can see the cottages snug as can be as the moon rises above the trees .

It is our favourite time of year when the children (and their grown ups) help us feed the lambs. This year we have 12 lambs at Graston Farm and they are in two lots – by age. The eight in the picture live beside the Mabels (our hens) and have been a delight since they […]
This summer has been ‘all go’ here at Graston Farm. We have been full up to and including this week, summer rolled into half-term and we expect our first ‘quiet’ week next week. The Camping/ Caravanning site has also been brisk with families and couples enjoying an amazing summer. We have seen lots of our […]
Some of our regular visitors might be aware that last December (before her 3rd birthday) our puppy Cassie was run over and sadly died. She was a precious little dog, well loved of our visitors children and a very happy little soul. Andrew and I were lost without her. Eventually we realised that we actually […]
It was a busy Christmas and New-Year and as usual we decorated inside and outside of the cottages for our guests. Each one had its own Christmas Tree and chocolate treats for the children. We were full for both Christmas and New-Year, then had a short breather and guests again in early January. We went […]
