The accommodation comprises of a stunning Georgian farmhouse sleeping 12 and two lavish cottages, The Bothy and Flint, sleeping two adults. The Farmhouse, with its sumptuous style, has six ensuite double bedrooms, four of which are available as twins. Downstairs, the farmhouse kitchen is a perfect place to congregate for breakfast. The next door dining room, easily seats 16 with doors out onto the sun terrace and BBQ area. Enjoy croquet and rounders on the lawn and send the children off to explore the play orchard with its willow Tipi, climbing fort and toddler area with sandpit and mud kitchen. Children will have plenty of room to play, hide, run around and soak up the countryside. For rainy days, the family room is a fantastic space to relax. With plenty of toys and books to entertain the little ones and a Wii console and games and selection of DVDs for chill out time – and of course there is the indoor pool! The sitting room is a refuge for grownups with its open fire place and plenty of comfy seating to relax at the end of the day.
The Bothy, a cosy apartment attached to the main farmhouse is on one floor. Flint, in a coverted stable overlooking the renovated Victorian farmyard gardens is on two floors. Both cottages have a kitchen, sitting/dining area with flat screen TV and woodburner and a super king bedroom (also available as a twin). Flint and The Bothy also have their own private outdoor courtyard with bateau bath. Launceston Farm is perfect for families and large groups as it can accommodate 16 people plus infants, but there is the option for couples to "get away" from the crowd and take refuge in their own self-contained accommodation whilst still being close by.
The indoor swimming pool and sauna and acres of gardens and farm tracks to explore will provide hours of entertainment for children of all ages. Bring bikes and walking boots and set off across the Cranborne Chase Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty with one of our walking routes. The wonderful local pub is just a five minute saunter into the village across the ford, hidden amongst the medieval thatched cottages.
