Three miles from the Jurassic Coast

General

  • Eco-friendly Dorset site with peaceful valley views
  • A 10-minute drive from Charmouth or Lyme Regis; Bridport 30 minutes
  • Shared kitchen, resident farm animals and woodland walks

Tending to these 12 green acres of Dorset countryside is a tough job, but someone's got to do it. At Monkton Wyld Court, those someones are a hardworking bunch of live-in volunteers who harvest the honey, make bounteous bales of hay and keep the livestock well fed and watered all year round.

Stays at this outdoor education and sustainability hub are a fair bit more laidback, while still staying true to the site's off-grid rural roots: the facilities here include a well-equipped communal kitchen, no-fuss composting toilets, an alfresco pizza oven and a firepit. This being a family-friendly spot, there are also a number of rope swings hanging from the trees.

Within an hour's walk (or a 10-minute drive) of the Jurassic Coast, Monkton Wyld Court is set in a secluded valley with inviting grounds that include terraced lawns, woodland, a stream, reedbeds and a gorgeous Victorian walled garden. The pitches here are flat and even – so much so that the main pitch area used to be used as a tennis court. Barbecues can be set up here, and grub – grilled or otherwise – can be eaten on one of the site’s several handy picnic tables.

Monkton Wyld Court is a 30-minute stroll from the Hunter's Lodge Inn, a well-liked local pub. Charmouth, where there's a wide sandy beach and plenty of places to stock up on food, is a 10-minute drive away.

    Disliked: 

    Noise from the tractor at nearby farm. Unfortunately this went up and down the lane next to the tents until 11pm at night towing a very rattly and squeaky trailer! (Not sure if that’s a regular occurrence?)

From the manager...

Thanks very much for your review Laura. We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Sorry about the tractor noise, we've never had a tractor doing work in the lane at night before. We all thought it was very unusual as they couldn't have seen what they were doing!
Thank you again and we hope to welcome you all back again at some point in the future.
