Thanks to support from BCP Skills & Learning Fund, Magdalen is pleased to offer a sleepover for families with a child who has a learning difficulty or disability who live in Dorset . The only criteria is that you have not visited Magdalen Farm in the past and you belong to the "Cygnets" group , Dorchester.
Magdalen is a working organic farm set in the glorious countryside of Dorset & Somerset. At the heart of our farm is an education centre from which we offer activities with accommodation and delicious meals. Our aim is to encourage as many people as possible from all walks of life to enjoy the great outdoors.
Our family breaks are a great opportunity for mums, dads, brothers and sisters or indeed any family member to come along together and enjoy a fun time. This specific event is aimed at families who have a child with a learning difficulty or disability to enjoy time together and bring parents together to share experiences. Accommodation will be provided in our converted farm buildings with 1 room designated per family with shared bathroom facilities. We will offer delicious seasonal food throughout the stay using as much produce from our own farm as possible - just let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements as we will be only to happy to accommodate your requirements.
On-site we have 3 all-terrain wheelchairs to help those less able to get around the farm along with a dedicated "Changing place" (please bring your own hoist if required).
We will tailor the event to suit the needs of the individuals in the group so it is important you let us know in advance of any requirements you and your family may have.
