The historic setting of Hawkers Farm has breathtaking views across the Blackmore Vale.  New copses have been planted, the orchard restored and new hedges created. The farmhouse, garden and outbuildings have been lovingly restored.

Hawkers Farm adjoins Duncliffe Wood  (Woodland Trust) and is 4 miles from Gillingham and Shaftesbury. An old milking parlour has been converted into an event barn which is the home of Hawkers Re-Creatives. In addition to hosting sustainable fashion events there are occasional film nights, concerts and pop up shops.

Accommodation is available in a shepherd's hut.
