Tea Valley Farm House
Sleeps up to 16 - 8 Bedrooms - Indoor Swimming Pool - Sauna - Orchard & Formal Gardens
Perfect party house with a 12m Pool and Sauna!
Located on a working farm, Tea Valley Farmhouse appears simply magical from the outside with stunningly kept formal gardens and a quaint exterior to the property, and oozes even more character once you enter, with shabby-chic décor, free standing roll top baths and a stylish farmhouse kitchen. The courtyard, walled garden and closed orchard within the grounds will make you feel like you are in a wonderland. Take advantage of the relaxing 12 metre pool and sauna which was built in 2016, adding contemporary luxury to the existing charm of this dog-friendly Dorset house. The picture-perfect venue for any family celebration, Tea Valley Farmhouse has so much to offer.
The main house at Tea Valley is perfect for an indulgent break away from the bustling world, sleeping up to sixteen guests in six en-suite rooms. If you prefer more space for your group, you can opt to fill the cosy ground floor apartment adjacent with its own access to the pretty courtyard and garden, and the two-storey two-sleeper house, both with unique and quirky bateau baths to enjoy on the same grounds. The beautifully finished indoor pool and sauna provide a warming sanctuary during your stay, and you can select these no matter the weather, or choose to get outdoors in the original gardens, preserved wonderfully so you can enjoy breezy afternoons with friends and family beside the charcoal barbeque.
Style is in abundance throughout this property with a large sitting room to seat up to twelve with an open fire, a traditional Aga in the kitchen, and each unique en-suite bedroom with their own individual boutique feel. Take advantage of some fantastic activities at Tea Valley, including a fun cocktail class with our talented mixologists, or a delicious three course meal prepared for you and your group by a private chef using local produce and interesting flavours to awaken your senses. Or why not venture out over one or two of Dorset’s 4,700 footpaths, or explore the nearby golden sandy beaches with the dogs? This setting is stunning for a family getaway that all your loved ones will talk about for years to come.
