You can enjoy a walk from Leys to Lyme Regis, which takes approximately 30 minutes following the old river bed.

A short drive away is the town of Lyme Regis hosting its charming shops with the beach adjacent to the town. The acclaimed Town Mill bakery with a wonderful selection of patisseries is worth the visit. Lots of restaurants to choose from including the popular Hix’s Oyster and Fish House in town.

Fancy a bit of different scenery then a short drive away is the town of Bridport, Dorchester or Weymouth are worth a day trip out. Leys is perfectly positioned to enjoy the countryside air and views, but also only being a short drive away from local towns and attractions.

Swingball and Croquet set available. Table football, skittles, pool table and table tennis are available in the separate undercover barn area. The property is often adorned with local and international landscape photos and canvasses as the owner is a professional photographer.

Nature Reserve and Woodland. This part of Valley View Farm has been home to animals and plants for thousands of years, but over the past few months, the owner has been trying to attract a wider range of flora and fauna by adding water, nest boxes, and generally enhancing the natural habitat for the benefit of all living things (including guests).

It opened in the summer of 2018 but is still in the early stages of development. This is very much a 'work in progress', but the owner plans to install cameras, so that barn and annexe guests can view the wildlife from the comfort of the armchair, a live version of Spring Watch. Jill hopes that guests will feel free to try use the area to enjoy the wildlife and feel free to make camps or such like. There are lots of fallen branches and plenty of dead vegetation to help with structures - the ideal place to hone your bushcraft skills! Providing checklists and clipboards encourages guests to see what they can spot. Help from keen naturalists and birdwatchers in adding to the list would be much appreciated. Entry to this area is strictly at your own risk, while children must be accompanied at all times. The pond is deep in parts and therefore extremely hazardous.

Our property restoration, hard landscaping, wildlife gardening and bush-craft courses can be tailored to meet individual requirements.
