Located in a timeless patch of English countryside, Mount Pleasant Collection is a farm that is very much of the moment. At Mount Pleasant, you set the pace of your holiday, insulated from the stresses of modern life. Waiting to meet you are Hereford and Aberdeen Angus cattle, a flock of New Zealand Suffolk ewes, horses, the greedy pigs and a collection of poultry. If all that wasn’t enough, the farm is just half an hour from Dorset’s beautiful beaches. Now even more ideal for groups than it already was, there is a new covered communal area for you and your friends/family members to come together and watch the starry night whilst enjoying your meal.
The market town Blandford Forum is just 25 minutes away, with lovely villages on the way and a Crazy Monsters indoor soft play centre for the little ones. If you feel like venturing further afield, Corfe Castle, Wardour Castle and Purbeck Heritage Coast are all within 25 miles.
