The Location

Set in the heart of Dorset between Chard and Crewkerne lies Magdalen farm. An organic farm and a member of Care Farming UK, the accessible centre here was converted from old farm buildings is set around a landscaped courtyard. The coastal town of Lyme Regis opens out onto the dramatic Jurassic Coast with fossil hunting at Charmouth.

Your Accommodation

The Centre at Magdalen is set around a courtyard and provides a variety of warm, cosy and bright spaces for our use. There are eight bedrooms, each of which has a bathroom next door. Beds are sturdy adult sized bunks, with plenty of space to allow everyone to use only the bottom bunks. The bedrooms are very flexible for families, and we are keen to involve children and grandchildren in the holidays at Magdalen if possible.

The dining room is nice and bright with trestle tables and chairs. At one end are comfortable sofas and a games corner. Doors from the dining room access the courtyard—great for the summer.

The food here is great, with the team cooking all meals using ingredients direct from the farm or from local producers. The centre provides access for the less mobile with ramps and large doorways. It also has a “Changing Place” shower and toilet facilities. Wi-Fi access is available.
