History of the Farm and Barn: Benedictine Monks established St Peter's Monastery at Abbotsbury in the 1040s. They built the Tithe Barn at the centre of the farm in the 1390's. The monastery was destroyed in 1539 during the dissolution. Some of the ruins can be seen around St. Nicholas' Church in the village.
The Children's Farm Today: This is a great place for the young family looking for things to do in Dorset. There are lots of animals for the children to meet, greet and feed. Considered one of the best Children's Farms in Dorset, there are fun things to do every day. Children can cuddle the guinea pigs, ride the ponies, race the tractors, play in the large undercover play area and bottle feed the baby goats. The baby goats also race around a track twice a day, after the race the children are invited to take a goat for a warm down walk on a lead. The family cafe offers local Dorset produce cooked on site and the gift shop has a charming range of quality gifts.
