We will provide more detailed information on this website just as soon as we can but please feel free to contact us if you'd like to know more.
The welfare of horses at Hobby Farm is paramount and they are considered to be part of Tom and Gaby's family. Any visiting horses are also welcomed into our family where their care is our priority at all times in a relaxing, friendly and supportive environment.
Gaby and Tom adore this area of West Dorset and want to share “their little corner of Dorset” with other like-minded horse owners. Whilst here, they want it to be "your place" where you and your horse can enjoy all the available facilities as well as the quiet and peaceful location that is Hobby Farm.
HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT A HOLIDAY WITH YOUR HORSE?
Here at Hobby Farm, we are fortunate to be situated in the beautiful countryside and coastal location of the Dorset Marshwood Vale – just perfect for exploring with your horse.
Why not come and see for yourself and visit with your horse? We've made things really easy for you both to stay at Hobby Farm.
We have 2 glamping Shepherds Huts, Otters Nest and Foxs Den or 9 adult-only tent pitches situated just a field away from our paddocks at Hobby Farm Campsite. Enjoy the beauty of West Dorset with numerous bridleways straight from our entrance. Hack for miles in any direction, stop off at rural pubs and admire the amazing views points along the way.
Whilst you stay nearby at our campsite, your horse can enjoy the excellent facilities of our American barn stabling and turnout paddock.
