Dorset Nectar Orchard Campsite: Huge pitches in mature orchard

General

  • Adults-only site in an orchard on a cider farm with 3,000 apple trees
  • A 15-minute drive from West Bay beach on the Jurassic Coast
  • Taproom serving champion craft ales and ciders; cider tours and trails

Three cheers for something deliciously different. Dorset Nectar Orchard Campsite is an adults-only campsite where you can pitch up among 3,000 organic apple trees. And you get easy access to the Jurassic Coast’s West Bay beach (15 minutes’ drive) into the bargain.

The grass pitches are widely spaced – guests have 12 metres between each one – meaning there’s ample room for dozing off in the shade… You could also settle down on the numerous benches in the cider garden or bound over to the barbecue area in the run-up to outdoor dinners. Alternatively, raised firepits are available, and there’s wood to purchase for small, safe cooking by your tent.

And the best bit? A tasting room selling 13 kinds of award-winning cider, as well as apple juice, craft beers and apple cider vinegar. The site also runs tours of the farm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

On other days of the week there are footpaths through neighbouring fields or by the river Brit to take advantage of, or you could stroll to the pub half a mile down the road to fill up on excellent food within easy walking distance. For other eats, there’s a farm shop just outside Bridport (10 minutes), where you can also pick up goodies at twice-weekly markets.

In terms of other facilities, the site has four toilets and two showers that are cleaned regularly. There's also the on-site cider shop, which sells biscuits, chutneys, jams, sausages, craft ales and local wines in addition to apple-related products.

Please note

The bar is open between 22/05 and 31/08.

Minimum spacing of 12 metres between pitches.

Group bookings of 10 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

Guests under the age of 20 are not allowed on site.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

On Saturday 25 June, 2022, the site will be running the World Nettle Eating competition. Guests staying over that weekend will enjoy this uniquely Dorset event.

Beautiful site for a relaxing camping break with a difference.14/09/2022

    Everything! Sleeping amongst the rows of apple trees was the perfect setting for a relaxing camping trip. The Cider Tasting Room was a great place to sit and chill pit after the days of exploring Dorset, and the ciders were delicious. Fire pits provided made the evenings feel cosy near the tents and the Cider Garden with it's sculptures was a cool place to enioy the evening sunshine. Enjoyed playing with the two friendly farm dogs, and talkinh to the guys running the site. Toilets and showers were cleaned to a high standard. Already looking to return next year for the apple blossom season!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing, the site had everything we wanted and needed.

    The team at Nectar Orchard Campsite are so lovely. A really unique campsite where your pitch is surrounded by Apple trees. We brought a set of ciders to sample and ordered delivery pizza from the nearby town. A really lovely stay and the breakfast fridge coming soon will be a great edition

    1) Despite it being a bank holiday weekend, it was so quiet and peaceful, really appreciate that this site is adults only - a rare find!
    2) Loved that everyone had their own pitch between the trees, it was so spacious and private.
    3) Great bar selling the cider they make, with picnic benches and cooked food available to buy each night we were there to save the hassle of cooking.
    4) Had fire pits you could use, and benches you could carry over to your pitch if you needed extra seating.
    4) Staff were amazing, very friendly and lots of tips about the area.
    5) There are only a couple of showers, but we actually didn't have any issues with needing to queue for long.
    6) Great that you could park your car at the end of your pitch so you didn't have to carry your stuff too far

    Wish I lived closer to Dorset so I could come more often, will definitely recommend!

    It's a lovely relaxed atmosphere and you really do feel seculed because you're camping between the trees. I thought it was great that each pitch had a fire pit and that the tasting room was open until 10:30 if you wanted to relax indoors etc... The location to the coast is outstanding too.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Sipping cider is a treat all of its own, but you might also like to sample others summery drinks at the nearby Furleigh Estate (five minutes’ drive), a local vineyard that does a nice line in still and sparkling wines. Once equipped with a suitable supply of your favourite beverage, pack it in a hamper and head to a local beauty spot for picnics: Colmer's Hill viewpoint (15 minutes), Gerrard's Hill (15 minutes), Colmers Hill (15 minutes), Mangerton Mill (15 minutes) and West Bay beach (15 minutes) would all make excellent backdrops.

If it's cider that has your heart, though, learn a little more about its heritage at the cider museum in Owermoigne (40 minutes). There's also an antique clock museum in town if you need a little break from the drinks.

As well as rural and coastal vistas, this part of Dorset has a lot of attractive gardens, including the well-groomed grounds at Mapperton House (15 minutes) and Bennetts Water Gardens (40 minutes), which is geared towards water lilies. A trip to Abbotsbury (30 minutes), meanwhile, can combine a wander around the subtropical gardens, the swannery and the maze.

For fossil-hunting, Lyme Regis (30 minutes) is your best bet. Afterwards, you can compare your finds with the giant Jurassic specimens on display at the town's two museums.

Must see

  • Mapperton House & Gardens (2.6 miles)
  • Abbotsbury Swannery (10.3 miles)
  • Montacute House (12.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Montacute House (12.5 miles)
