Best Quirky Places to Stay

***Any day arrival - Min 3-night stay***  

An adventurers delight in Dorset - this old railway carriage oozes Victorian explorer charm!

Set in a beautiful glamping meadow Explorers carriage is just a few miles from the coast - a great spot for some exploration, with beaches, spectacular rolling coastline, and some of the best fossil hunting in Europe.

Light the lamps, pop the kettle on the log stove and plan your expeditions, where will you go? Fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast, take a speedboat tour? 

Chill out in the evenings by the campfire, toast a proverbial marshmallow and soak up starry skies... maybe even share a glass of wine with your glamping neighbours and the other two huts in the paddock?

However, this extra-large glamping field has plenty of space between each pitch, so there's plenty of privacy and gorgeous countryside to enjoy all to yourself.

Activities on-site 
Guests can also book a massage, yoga, meditation and tantra with owner Bryony who is well respected in her field for her work. It's also possible to book foraging and paragliding too! Please call in advance to arrange, or speak to Bryony on arrival.
