About the Farm

Bowling Green Farm is a peaceful and idyllic 8 acres of farmland set in the Dorset countryside. Set in the small village of East Orchard, we are located halfway between the historic Shaftesbury and Sturmster Newton.

At the farm you can be as active or as relaxed as you choose. Pass the time exploring local footpaths or cycling along quiet local roads. Discover secret valleys and come across picturesque villages. If you’re not inclined to be active sit and enjoy the views from our farm, the Blackmore Vale is alive with wildlife including deer, buzzards and pheasant.

The village of Fontmell Magna is nearby (a 10 minute drive or 1 hour walk) with an excellent pub (The Fontmell) for drinks and superb food.
