We stayed from 1-4 January 2016 in their Country Cabin. Communication from Rob was really good and he informed us that we needed to bring wellies due to the weather. He was not wrong! Unfortunately the route to our country cabin was a mud bath - probably a gravel path leading to the relevant accommodation would make getting around easier.... More

We had a fantastic 2 night stay in one of the yurts for New Years Eve and New Years Day. We had an amazingly warm welcome on arrival and the directions on their website made it easy enough to find. I even emailed asking for recommendations for somewhere to go and eat and got a speedy reply (the food at... More

We have just returned from a weekend visit to this site and have been incredibly impressed from beginning to end. The customer service from beginning to end was outstanding. Rob seems to have thought of everything including checking traffic conditions before our arrival. The Yurt was lovely and despite horrible weather, we had a great time. Will definitely go again.

We arrived back yesterday after a two-night break in the 'county cabin' and we had such a wonderful time despite the wet weather. The staff were so accommodating even bringing over an impromptu cake when I told them it was our son's birthday. The cabin was warm and cosy and was ready for us straight away. We toasted marshmallows and... More

I stayed in one of the beautiful stargazer yurts for a three night glamping break with my partner. It was our first glamping experience and definitely one that we will never forget. We especially enjoyed the sunset at the beautiful lake. The friendly staff made us feel special from the very first moment and that lasted till our departure. We... More

I came here for late summer break last minute, there was a cancellation so we stayed in the vintage caravan. Though the site is deep in the countryside, it was easy to get to from London, the staff even waited for us to arrive after work. Upon arrival, we were taken to the caravan and everything was waiting for us.... More

I stayed 3 nights in the country cabin and have nothing but good things to say about the experience! The cabin was very warm in the night and the bed was beyond comfortable. There is a lake on the site that I took my girlfriend and bottle of champagne to one of the nights. Sitting on the bench under the... More

Booked a long weekend in the family bell tent as was tempted by the "exotic"and" luxurious" description on the website. After a long drive with three children we were shocked to discover the 20 acre campsite in glorious countryside is in fact a few damp and mouldy tents places on a strip of grass behind a petrol station and some...

We had a fantastic experience at Dorset Glamping - The whole experience was straightforward right from the start when we booked through to emailing and asking additional questions. Nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived after a long journey we had a wonderful warm welcome from Rob who explained everything and was so helpful and made us feel very... More
