Attraction Information

Blackmarsh Farm is a family friendly destination nestled in the idyllic Dorset countryside, on the outskirts of Sherborne. With a warm cafe offering local produce grown onsite, we are also home to the popular Toy Barn shop and play area, alongside our good friends Black Shed who offer fresh cut flowers grown on the farm land.

We welcome the young, the wild and those who like muddy boots and dirty paws. We hope to see you all soon.
