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

Having camped and experienced the bad back that accompanies the experience I was a little apprehensive about what our two night break would entail - but I needn't have worried! We were greeted upon arrival and shown to our bell tent. You are able to bring your vehicle right up to the tents at arrival and departure however they must... More

I decided to try my hand at glamping for my 40th birthday. I hate camping completely so spent a while searching for the right site that could fit in me and my 9 friends easily and close together. During the booking process both Rob and Neyah were very helpful with details and arrangements for activities and accommodation. I think everyone... More

No problem with the yurt itself. The luxury toilet block is a very long way away, not great especially in the middle of the night with no lights. There is no outside covering so if it was raining you would be unable to use the gas stove. Not great if you have kids as we could hear everything and i... More

Just back from a fantastic Hen weekend at Dorset Holidays and Events. We had such an amazing time here. We were a group of 14 ladies staying in a safari tent, 2 quirky caravans and a little cabin. From the off Dave and Rob took fantastic care of us, nothing was too big a task and it really added to... More
