Magdalen is an 132-acre organic working farm on the banks of the River Axe where Dorset, Somerset and Devon meet. We offer flexible accommodation for small and large groups in our residential centre and traditional farmhouse. Good food is a big deal here - our visitors can enjoy delicious home-cooked food from our own kitchen and gardens.


"We all had a great time. The activities were fun, informative and well-paced (for both the children and the adults!) and Magdalen's staff were very friendly and welcoming." - Year 8 teacher, Maiden Beech Academy
