While you are enjoying your stay with us at Dorset Farm there are lots of things you can do without having to get into the car and drive miles and miles.

We can offer walking - we have several farm walks we can give you, fishing, painting and sketching, photography, cycling, just sitting and dreaming, bird watching, reading and more. We have our own hide which you are free to use to perhaps spot deer, squirrels, birds, foxes and lots more. We have books to help identify that elusive butterfly

Spend a day with a photographer.

Photographer Peter Crumpler will meet you at Dorset Farm and will guide you on a memorable day's photographic shooting.

This is particularly suitable for the beginner or those wishing to improve their skills. We can visit a wildlife sanctuary and meet otters, owls, deer and a wide variety of ducks and peacocks close up. We can also visit the coast, historical locations or the woodlands according to your preferences.

Later in the day we can enhance the photographs taken on our expedition using our computer so you have a souvenir of everything we have done saved onto cd or dvd.


The organisation of the day is very flexible and is tailor-made to your ideas and wishes.



Prices start from as little as £145 per family for a full day. A camera can be provided or of course you can use your own.



Walk the farm with Jon

Explore the beautiful farm which borders down to the River Tamar.  Jon will show you the remnants of the Bude to Launceston canal complete with canal bridge.  Spot lots of wildlife - you may be lucky to see a red deer or hares playing in the grass. Lots of birds to spot - we even have our own hide.  

Go fishing

We have a frontage of about a kilometre along the River Tamar which makes for a perfect day’s fishing. We can arrange licences for you if you wish and show you best spots to enjoy your sport.






Play Golf
There are a number of good golf courses locally so don’t forget to bring your clubs with you.

Lots of cycling too from beginner (Camel Trail) to more experienced - Granite Way etc.

We have lots of activity ideas for you during your stay at Dorset Farm. Why not have a day's photography or painting or golf or fishing on the River Tamar.
