- Grass pitches on a cider apple farm with spectacular West Dorset views
- A 10-minute drive to Bridport; 15 minutes from West Bay beach
- 190 acres of farmland to explore on site; pub 10 minutes’ walk away
Close to West Bay beach, the market town of Bridport and historic Beaminster, the pitches at Hincknowle Cider Apple Farm Camping are scattered over 190 acres of undulating farmland, ponds, orchards and woodland – and that means a whole lot of exceptional views over West Dorset and the Jurassic Coast.
The farm is home to many deer, badgers, foxes and various birds of prey – and as you’re free to roam, look out for buzzards, kestrels and owls. There is also livestock around: pigs, sheep and alpacas live here, so although well-behaved dogs are welcome, they must be kept on a lead.
Limiting the number of large mowed pitches means you have plenty of space and privacy on the site. They're off grid with little light so you can really appreciate the starry skies on clear nights (please that also means you'll need to bring torches for after-dark meanders).
A boon for days when the weather isn’t up to much, the restored barn has communal cooking gear along with a shared fridge to store food. Light the woodburner on cooler evenings, hang out with family and friends, play board games or table tennis… there are phone chargers in there too. Other amenities on site include outdoor showers with plenty of hot water and spotless separate toilets.
There is a pub in Melplash, 10 minutes’ walk away through the private orchards, and several footpaths begin from the village.
Bookings must not be for more than 7 consecutive nights.
Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

If you’re camping with kids, chances are they’ll be keen to get to the beach. Indulge them with a day out at West Bay (15 minutes’ drive), where you can all go fishing, rookpooling and crabbing, or make like Kate Winslet and head to Charmouth (half an hour) to rootle around on the beach for fossils. Dog-friendly Hive Beach (20 minutes) is a clever option for long walks with your furry friends under the shelter of limestone cliffs.
The South West Coast Path (15 minutes) passes through the area if you fancy more challenging all-day hikes with impressive sea and sand views from soaring clifftops. The trail heads past lively Bridport (10 minutes); stop there a while to check out its antiques shops or take a high-speed RIB cruise to see the Jurassic Coast from the water.
Firmly back on land, take the kids to feed donkeys and wallabies at Vurlands Animal Farm (20 minutes), or spend the day getting up close to the Mute swan colony at Abbotsbury Swannery (35 minutes).
