What a fantastic place! Excellent facilities, with some nice touches like provided bathrobes and breakfast basket. Extremely friendly and helpful owner. Beautiful countryside with some great pubs nearby.

We have just returned from a short one night stay and we already want to go back! Rob (the owner) was so welcoming and helpful, he really made you feel like a valued customer, it was lovely to be greeted by such a friendly person after a long drive. The bell tents were beautiful and came with everything you could... More

This is the second time me and my wife have glamped here. We loved it just as much as the first time with the extra comfort in f being closer to the showers now. You're treated so kindly and the people can't seem to do enough for you. It was a please, we will see you in the summer 😀

I had a wonderful stay with my boyfriend for a special break. The staff welcomed us at our arrival with chilled bubbly! We stayed one night in a tent that we could see the stars at night through the see-through ceiling, very romantic. The second night we stayed in the country cabin, which was cosy and secluded, felt like it... More

An unforgettable magical experience! Yurts were beautiful! Warm, clean and dry and had everything. Fairy lights lit up ur way at night. Sheep fields opposite the yurts. Lynn n Robin the owners, were welcoming, understanding and warm people. A great place to build bonds! Thank you so much!! Definitely recommend my stay in a yurt! Just wish the toilets were... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on Saturday 11th October as first time glampers 😄 All in all we had a fantastic stay and would recommend a visit!

Ok, so I don't like camping, - tents and the lack of en suite facilities tend to make me squirm. However, the chance to get to Dorset and stay in a very affordable Vintage Caravan seemed more me. - The website has lots and lots of information, and many choices, if you don't like tents, then you can book a...

We stayed at the send of September in the Country Kabin. The Kabin itself is technicially a 'shed', and the build quality is average at best. The site itself is tiny right behind a main road and our view of the fields was was hampered by bushes and thorns and overgrown grass - not very idyllic! We booked last minute... More

My partner and I stayed last weekend with our 13 week old daughter and had the best time! The campsite was easy to find and in beautiful surroundings close to Shaftesbury town. The facilities were very good and clean. The galaxy viewer pod was very comfortable and large enough for everything we needed, most of which was provided - electric... More

Having read all the Trip Advisor Reviews, we were prepared and knew what to expect. The Star Gazer pod was brilliant, really warm on a cold night and great for an outdoor BBQ and fire. The real disappointment with this experience is you're cramped into a small field with no space despite being surrounded by fields. You can practically touch... More
