Stour Provost   Dorset   SP8 5LZ

The historic setting of Hawkers Farm has breathtaking views across the Blackmore Vale.  The farm adjoins Duncliffe Wood  (Woodland Trust) and is 4 miles from Gillingham and Shaftesbury. New copses are growing, the orchard has been restored and  hedgerows planted. The farmhouse, garden and outbuildings have been brought back to life.

 An old milking parlour has been converted into an event barn which is the home of Hawkers Re-Creatives. Here you will find; Wear Me Out - special occasion outfits and hats to borrow, Second to None - a collection of natural fibre second hand clothes for sale and mending and redesigning workshops. In addition to hosting sustainable fashion events and Dorset Art Weeks exhibitions, there are occasional film nights, concerts and pop up shops.

Accommodation is available in a shepherd's hut.


Information can be found via the menus above.
