Downshay Farm

The Old Workshop holiday cottage

We are pleased to offer our new holiday cottage for 2021. Converted from a 200 year old cart shed, previously the farm workshop, and newly decorated. Suitable for two adults or a family of 4.

The Old Workshop is a Purbeck stone building on our working farm with Purbeck stone floors and marble windowsills.

A spacious entry hall with kitchen/diner and sitting room downstairs.

Upstairs you will find one double bedroom and one children’s room with bunkbeds and bathroom with small bath and shower over. Sloping ceiling in main bedroom.

Pretty garden, sunny patio and parking to the rear of the cottage. Barbecue provided. Sorry no dogs.


The cottage is located on a working farm in the heart of Purbeck, with Swanage and Corfe Castle in striking distance. We also have a campsite and caravan site. The cottage is part of the farm buildings, and during the school holidays you will be aware of campers passing to the field behind the garden. Please be aware of this when booking.


Underfloor heating, WiFi, TV with DVD player. Well-equipped kitchen with oven, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine. On your arrival we will include a welcome basket, filled with locally sourced milk, bread and eggs.
