Welcome to Dashwood Meadows! We are located in Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. This is a hobby farm with sheep, mini goats, donkey, dog and cat. 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.

While we were only there for one night it was a great stay! Amanda was very welcoming and had great communication. We loved the space and her very friendly animals.

Lovely campsite, kind hosts
Stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our time here. The campsite was beautiful, spacious, and really well kept. The addition of a fire pit and picnic bench of our own was great, and there was loads of space for our car and tent while still being far enough away from the other sites for privacy. Bathroom was very clean too. Our hosts were really kind, checked in on us and dropped over firewood and paper as soon as we asked. Loved our donkey neighbour and Spyro the dog too!

Beautiful place to be
My group of 5 and I 100% recommend this place for your next camping stay. Potable water, a clean outhouse, a kind and gracious host AND many incredible animals, what more can you ask for? Amanda was extremely kind and willing to show us around the property, introducing us to all the animals, but also gave us ample space and privacy while we were there. The farm is beautiful and well maintained, and the animals are evidently well loved and cared for. Thank you Amanda and Pavel for a lovely long weekend!

Really nice place
We loved staying at Amanda and Paul's place for an early spring car camping weekend! Amanda welcomed us and was very friendly. We had reserved site 2, but since no one else was there we were able to switch to site 3, which had more sun. In warm weather, we might have done the opposite. Site 2 and 3 are fully enclosed with (the same) fence. We were able to let our dog run free - which she loved - but we wouldn't have done that if the other site in the enclosure was rented by someone we didn't know. There are Icelandic sheep on the property, a huge fluffy white dog, and a sweet donkey named Serafina. I imagine that this place would be a hit with kids! Composting toilet (compostable bag toilet + wood shavings in an outhouse) was clean and odor-free.
