About Lodbourne Farmhouse


We offer a choice of individually decorated rooms for choice, style and cost. Gillingham is the furthest north of the Dorset towns. It is also on the brink of the Wiltshire and Somerset borders. 

Originally a Saxon town which stands on the River Stour between Salisbury and Yeovil. 5 miles from the historic town of Shaftesbury.

Local nearby attractions include Stourhead House and Gardens. (4 Miles) and Longleat House and Safari Park (14 miles) where the now popular Festival of Light is held.



PARKING. We have our own gated parking at the property for around 8 cars if parked sensibly. Parking will be on a first come first serve basis.

GARDEN. We have a sunny garden with outdoor furniture which guests are welcome to use to enjoy the sunshine in the Summer months.

Pets and Children. We have our own resident dogs so are unable to offer pet friendly accommodation apart from guide dogs. At present we do not have the facilities to accommodate children under the age of 12.
