Knaveswell Farm is a lovely dairy farm in the heart of Dorset. Corfe Castle is just over the hill and Swanage and Studland are minutes away by car. The owners of the farm have four Safari Tents in a field surrounded by trees and hills and it really is glorious. The tents sleep six and have proper beds (one being... More

We recently stayed in the new Safari tents for two nights to celebrate a family birthday. We were a mixed group - including seasoned campers with a baby and a toddler, a nan and aunt who had never been camping and are not normally 'outdoorsy'. We all *loved* our stay. The tent is amazing - our son loved the 'cupboard'... More

My family has just spent a week at Knaveswell Farm, and had the best holiday we've ever had! Our 4 year old loved helping out on the farm with feeding the calves and letting the chickens out, and our almost one year old made the most of all the space to explore in around the tent. The tents are beautifully... More

We have just spent the weekend at Knaveswell Farm with our 3 children and 3 other families and we all had a brilliant time. The new "safari" tents are amazing, so well equipped, really comfortable beds, a proper bathroom with shower, a log burning oven and everything else you could possibly need. The wildlife "big 5" was made up of... More

We've just spend a fabulous weekend at Knaveswell Farm in their delightful, well equipped glamping tents. We had three of the four tents and it was the perfect venue for a sociable weekend away with friends and family. The tents are really well kitted out and the beds were more comfy than my bed at home. We are already looking... More

We spent a glorious weekend at Knaveswell Farm with a group of friends. The tents are furnished to a high standard with great attention to detail. Everyone couldn't believe how comfortable the beds were and the enjoyed waking to the sound of bird song and Cowes gently mooing in the morning! Very spacious safari style tents with individual Loo's and... More

I asked my 8 year old son what I should write in this review and he said "amazing tents, I loved feeding the chickens." We had a lovely break here in the tents which stood up to gale force winds during the first night of our stay and have running water, comfortable beds and their own toilets and showers. Everything...

We had a wonderful 3 night stay in our exclusive tent. Our two girls were entertained from the minute we arrived with giving milk to lambs, saying hello to the pigs, ponies and collecting eggs from the chickens. The tents are amazing, and once you have mastered the wood burner are incredibly comfy and cosy. Luxurious beds, towels and every... More

We had a. Lovely stay here with our 2 year old daughter. The tent is lovely and rustic with a log burner. The beds are comfortable enough and our little girl loved the novelty. We collected eggs from the chickens in the morning. They also have a farm shop with supplies. The weather was great which I think makes all... More

We have stayed at Knaveswell Farm twice before when it was a Featherdown Farm. Jo and Paul have now gone it alone with brand new safari tents. They are awesome, we decided on a last minuet weekend break as a taster to see what had changed as we enjoyed it before. Well, it just got even better. The layout of... More
