Such a pleasure to stay here. A long drive for us from the north of England but worth the journey. The site has a vibe of chill, unwind and relax. Worth every penny and would stay again. The weather was terrible when we went, doesnt matter, throw another log on the burner and chill. Although I stayed in cowslip, the... More

After many years of camping, we decided to give a yurt a go for some Glamping. This was pretty amazing, very peaceful site and Mark and Caryl are great hosts and made us feel most welcome. The yurt was very spacious, and we had to give the log burner a go ! Our two sons 7 and 9 thoroughly enjoyed... More

Mark and Caryl, hosts of Caalm camp went out if their way to enable my husband and I to have a very enjoyable holiday with our family. My husband uses a wheelchair and the camp had ramped access to the yurt, kitchen and bathroom areas, and a wet area bathroom. The pathways around the camp were hard gravel and smooth... More

Thank you for your very kind review, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and that Caalm Camp was able to offer your husband and you a family camping holiday that would otherwise have been impractical. As typing errors go, this was a little unfortunate that the title of your review reads "Wheelchair accessible hurting". I know that... More

We decided to revisit after such a great week last year. We had a similar experience as last year and actually stayed in the same Yurt. Mark hasn't rested on his success and has actually added certain bits over the last 12 months. He has now got brick BBQ's in place with a fire pit next to each yurt. He... More

It's a great site, the weather was pretty bad at times, but the yurt was lovely. Warm, dry and airy, as was the inside converted barn area for kitchens/shower rooms. There was plenty of room inside the yurt, even with an additional bed. I think it would easily accommodate a sixth without feeling cramped. Plenty of lighting that wasn't (thankfully!)... More

The weather was pretty awful for a summer weekend but we were dry and cosy inside our yurt. The facilities are great. It really is posh camping. Would certainly return perhaps with family or friends staying in one of the other yurts. Beautiful surrounding countryside. Recommend The Kings Arms for a superb carvery.

It was just brilliant. First time glamping and I certainly won't mind doing it again. 5 adults in a yurt was not a problem at all. The yurt was also very cosy and had a kettle for the all important morning coffee. Well equipped kitchen (shared) and even room for some ice cream in the freezer compartment in the fridge... More

A lovely couple of days in the beautiful Dorset countryside and a welcome rest from London life. Mark and Caryl were so welcoming and even picked us up from the train station on arrival. The yurts were beautiful and the site was so peaceful. Thanks for a fantastic stay and I'm sure we will all be back!
