Nikki and Dean and our lovely dedicated team welcome you to Downhouse Farm.We took on Downhouse Farm, which forms part of the Golden Cap Estate, in 1991, as life term National Trust tenants when it was just 100 acres (now 380 acres running from Eype beach to Seatown beach!). We would like to encourage you to walk some of the many meandering footpaths that criss-cross the farm and to soak up the endless stunning views encountered en route, notably from Thorncombe Beacon, the highest point on the farm at 155 metres above sea level. In May the scent of bluebells carpeting Eype Down, behind the cafe, lies heavily in the air - bliss! Both within the garden and whilst out walking you can expect to see an enormous range of wild flowers, grasses, butterflies, birds and bees, all encouraged by our approach to farming, the diverse habitat surrounding us and the sympathetic planting within the garden. Imagine being able to enjoy all of this safe in the knowledge that, whatever time of day you tire and your tummy needs filling, you can drop into our little garden oasis and allow us to fulfil your culinary requirements and water your dog at the same time!
