Welcome to Dashwood Meadows! We are located in Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. This is a hobby farm with sheep, mini goats, chickens, donkeys, dogs and cats. We grow berries, plums, cherries, nuts and wildflowers. Child-friendly and family-friendly environment. You can walk the labyrinth of forest trails nearby. There is a beach 9 km from the farm. Lakes, rivers, waterfalls, provincial parks, caves, golf courses, children's playgrounds and country markets, all within less than an hour's drive. In Qualicum Beach, you will find amazing sandy beaches, picture-perfect views, world-class biking and hiking trails, salt-tinged ocean air, and the small-town charm of our communities. Seeing goats on a roof, exploring underground caves, strolling endless beaches at low tide, and walking among ancient old-growth forests are just some of the experiences you’ll be able to tell your friends about back home.

Lovely experience
We had such a lovely time here. Amanda was very responsive if we needed anything and also held space for us to just enjoy the space. Super close to Qualicum Beach making it easy to get a nice beach hang in. The icing on the cake for our kids was Seraphina - the friendly donkey. The kids loved petting her and selecting carrots to feed her. They are still telling us this was their favourite camping spot.

We had a great time! Our kids loved visiting all the animals and it was so nice to have a fenced area where our dogs could run around without causing trouble. Thanks again!
