Standing at the helm of a perfectly formed glamping meadow, this eco-friendly accommodation enjoys a stunning vista of voluptuous hills, ancient woodland, and the Dorset coast beyond. This is the perfect place to escape, unwind, and enjoy the simple pleasures of a great British glamping break.

Nestled in the rolling hills of Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty- a designated area of outstanding natural beauty - this family-sized yurt sits just 1 mile from the spectacular Jurassic Coast. Here you are spoilt for choice with breathtaking beaches, coastal walks, as well as some of the best fossil hunting in Europe. This is England's only natural world heritage site.

The spacious 20ft traditional Mongolian Yurt will keep you cool in summer and toasty in winter for a heartwarming escape no matter what the season. It's kitted out with original hand-painted Mongolian furniture, and a wood burner for cosy evenings around the fire.

The field itself is hidden away on an organic farm so expect to see a few cows and their calves, and spring lambs skipping through the grassland, depending on the season. There is also a designated wild meadow with butterflies, birds, and bees in abundance.

The extra-large glamping field is shared with a shepherds hut and a railway wagon, however, there's plenty of space between each pitch, so you won't be short of privacy and your own slice of tranquil Dorset countryside. If you're looking for an off-grid glamping experience in a gorgeous natural location, then this is just the ticket.

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! Please call in advance to arrange, or speak to Bryony on arrival.

Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ONB covers nearly half of the county from vales in the west, along the South Dorset Ridgeway, right across to Poole Harbour in the east. This stunning landscape incorporates some of the UK's best coastline and a gorgeous array of natural countryside.

Cranborne Chase, another AONB, is a diverse landscape offering areas of rolling chalk grassland, ancient woodlands, chalk river valleys each with a distinct and recognisable character. The landscape is extraordinarily rich with wildlife and offers a number of excellent walking opportunities.

Beaches

Dorset boasts 25 Blue Flag and Seaside Award beaches, making it a premier destination for beachgoers and water sport enthusiasts. From the soft golden sands of Weymouth and the stunning scenery of Lyme Regis to the magnificent cliff-lined beaches of Bournemouth and Poole, there's plenty to choose from. 

Fossil Hunting

Famed for its abundance of fossil-filled rocks, it's easy to see why this stretch of the land is called the Jurassic Coast. You don't need a hammer and a chisel to dig up your own fossils here, many are washed up daily on the weathering rocks and pebbles of Dorset's beaches. Winter is by far the best season for fossil hunting when the beaches are quieter and the fossils are more plentiful.
