Lower Fifehead Farm offers luxury Bed and Breakfast in a stunning 17th century farm house which nestles in the picturesque Hamlet of Fifehead St Quintin. It is surrounded by 400 acres of rolling fields, in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the majestic Bulbarrow Hill, the second highest point in Dorset.
Lower Fifehead Farm has been in the Miller family for three generations. It's mullion windows and their rope twist detailing are mentioned in Nikolaus Pevsner’s County Guide book, "The Buildings of England", which remains the definitive inventory of England's architectural heritage.
The Farm House is now home to Jasper, Jessica, their five year old daughter, Lily, and a menagerie of animals including three friendly dogs - (Bandit a Springer Spaniel, Frog, a black labrador and Gordon, a mischeivous Jack Russell) and a variety of cats, rabbits, horses, ponies, and chickens.
Jasper is an Arable Farmer, while Jessica runs the Bed & Breakfast, alongside writing for Dorset Life Magazine and working on her first novel.
With her creative flair, talent for interior design and eye for detail, Jessica has transformed each room into a warm, inviting space whilst retaining the stunning original features, including a fabulous Inglenook fireplace which they discovered behind the small 1950's hearth during the renovations.
The arresting combination of the sleepy beauty of the surrounding countryside, the blissfully comfortable super king size beds, delicious locally sourced food, candle-lit evening dining, and the friendly ‘home from home’ atmosphere, make Lower Fifehead Farm a rural utopia, the perfect place to relax and unwind.
We welcome children of all ages. Dogs also very welcome at an additional cost of £10 per night.
