Comfy beds, with lovely white bedding, great kitchenette and cooking facilities. Plenty of space for my husband, daughter, 3 grandchildren and our collie dog lomu, with loads... More

My family and I stayed at Knaveswell farm for a 4 night break after recommendations from a friend. I am no camper by any means but this place was my kind of 'camping'! The tents were amazing - so spacious with lots of home comforts (they have been very well thought about). There was a lovely big dining table, a... More

I had stayed at a Featherdown Farm glamping tent before, but this beats it tenfold. So much more comfortable and practical. The tents are pretty new and spotless. The living area is great, comfy leather sofa, big table, stove and proper little kitchen with running water. There is a lovely deck area with picnic table for an evening meal and... More

Smashing accommodation in a good location. The owners have worked hard to think of everything you need so you can get on with enjoying the outdoor life. The beds and linen are comfortable and good quality, the kitchen well equipped and the shower and toilets clean and very practical. The large shower is very welcome for washing down the kids...

We have been Glamping at Knaveswell Farm for the past 7 years and always received a warm welcome from Jo and Paul. This year was as great as ever and WOW what a wonderful addition the new tents are to the farm! The added comforts really make it more 'Glam' than 'ping'. Great beds, super comfy sofa, hot water, efficient... More

Fantastic equipment and facilities, stunning area and lovely people. Not into camping, love my home comforts but this was fab. Me, my husband and 3 girls aged 12, 8 , 6 loved collecting eggs and feeding the calves. Weather could have been better but didn't spoil our stay at all. Definitely will be back 😀

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
