Autumn Nights

Barn Cottage

One of the great compensations for the shorter days is the splendid sunset show we see from Graston Farm. From around 4pm the colour in the western sky is growing into a stunning sunset sky by 5.30-6pm. All our cottages french windows face the west, and so everyone gets the benefit ……….and of course all […]

Waiting to fling open the doors once more…

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.

Spring Events near Graston Farm

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.

Welcoming Winter Visitors

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.
