We stayed here in July in a group of 10 for my sisters hen do, in a combination of the group bell tent and hunting lodge. The accommodation was great and the hunting lodge was very cool and quirky. We were well equipped with cool boxes and heaters, and the accommodation stayed clean and dry despite some really terrible rain... More

The staff were great...always happy to help and always with a smile... Dawn and Dave, site service, were exceptional...it's a great family... More

I can't comment on the facilities as we never got to go, this was due to the poor organisation of the staff and extremely outdated booking procedure. All our card details were taken several times and we made multiple calls to try to ensure that the booking was completed until eventually we found out 1 day before we we were... More

We stayed in the Galaxy Stargazer (glamping) pod -- you really could see the stars! All the basics such as cutlery, crockery, kettle, gas stove etc were laid on, plus a nifty cool box and a heater for when it gets cold. All in, the space was cosy, welcoming and user-friendly (particularly if you're not a frequent camper). The staff... More

To quote the website, ‘we understand that Glamping comprises of two words Glamorous and Camping’ and ‘the glamour of the exotic or luxurious mixed with the fun of sleeping under canvas’. We arrived with expectations. ‘Nestled in the beautiful Dorset countryside’ and ‘we are located at the foot of a forestry commission wooded hill in the heart of Thomas Hardy's... More

I've just returned from 3 nights in a yurt with my family. The Yurt itself was fine and cosy and the toilets and showers were fine so no complaints there. What takes the shine off this venue is the location. The yurts are no more than about 15 feet apart so you do hear everything from your neighbours and privacy... More

I came here last week for 4 nights in a yurt with my two boys 7 and 10 and our big dog. I was apprehensive about camping with the kids and dog as we have never done it before. It was a huge success. All four of us loved it. My boys are very 'free range' anyway but spent the... More

Had a great escape from the kids. Site was excellent clean and tidy. Stayed in a Bell Tent which for size and value was exceptional. The new shower block was spotless. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with excellent hosts, although there was 2 small niggles which I'm sure can be easily sorted: The first is the showers can they... More

We had a great weekend at Dorset Country Holidays Glamping, it was a first-time-experience for all 8 of us and we really enjoyed ourselves. While we were there the yurts were really put to the test with a night of torrential rain and thunder storms- but alas we were warm and dry and very snuggly in our beds. With crazed... More

Was a really nice little location and very quiet - not far from a road which gave some road noise but not too much - Im from a town so it was very quite to me. My trip was a present from my mum in the form of a Virgin experience - - really not worth the money and just... More
