Lovely quiet campsite with only 4 bell tents in a large and peaceful field. The tents are very comfortable and well equipped with futons, lanterns and a cool-box. The kitchen facility has a kettle, toaster, microwave and phone charging points and basics such as tea, coffee, hot chocolate and cooking oil/seasoning etc. - However if you want the authentic camping...

Having just returned from 3 nights at Old Bidlake Farm I can't really summarise how much we enjoyed our break. Sue and Nick have thought of every detail to make the experience comfortable yet still retain the feel of camping. We felt so welcomed and it was the perfect way to introduce our toddler to camping. The site is also... More

This is our second visit to Bidlake and it really did feel like a home from home coming back. A huge amount of care and attention has been given to the site and facilities.The tents are lovely, the organization is superb, but it's Sue and Nick that really make the place. They couldn't be more helpful hosts. Bidlake is ideally... More

We had a wonderful 6 day break at Old Bidlake Farm. As someone who usually tolerates camping for 2 nights maximum, I honestly could have stayed another week. The tents are spacious and the addition of hot water bottles was a wonderful touch and they kept us warm on very cold nights. The bathroom facilities are great (not grand, but... More

We have just returned from a short 2 night bank holiday stay - it was great, we were able to take our own bell tent, as their 1 acre plot was all booked, and we got out own peaceful spot next door. The facilities were clean and well thought out, the site was peaceful with great views and the hosts... More

This is a great campsite; clean, relaxed, child friendly and quite. The owners are very friendly and really look after you throughout the stay. The tents are great quality and good size with very comfortable beds. Each tent had its own wood burning rocket-stow and was really easy and fun to cook on.

We have just come back from another fantastic long weekend at Bidlake. Sue & Nick are evolving this site to be better & better each year. We all had a brilliant time, our children were safe and ran free while we could relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Such a friendly welcome and full of so many fabulous hand made... More

Let me preface this review by saying - I don't camp. However, on this one occasion that I did camp, it truly was perfect. Sue and Nick have created a little slice of camping heaven in a picturesque field just north of Bridport and West Bay. The spacious bell tents are perfect to fit a family of four with plenty...

We returned to Old Bidlake Farm for our third year running, the simplicity and charm of the place never failing and the familiar ritual felt like returning to visit friends. But there were also changes because each year Sue and Nick take on board suggestions and they have new ideas about how they can tweak and improve your visit without... More
