Bells at Cleavel Point: Relax and enjoy.

General

  • Coastal glamping site in private woodland on the Isle of Purbeck
  • A 15-minute drive from Corfe Castle and the Swanage Railway
  • Coast views, jetty for kayak launching and pop-up shop on site

Way to sum up Bells at Cleavel Point in a single word? ‘Wow’ should just about cover it… for this gorgeous glamping site is in a mighty fine Dorset spot right by the sea on the Isle of Purbeck, with a rare and enviable 270-degree outlook over Poole Harbour, Brownsea Island and Sandbanks.

And that’s the kind of view you could settle down to stare at for quite some time, right? Feel free to do so… owner Jon and his friendly team will even enhance the experience by renting you a giant bean bag to sprawl out on and a campfire tripod so you can grill up a bit of grub to munch on while you do so – how very splendid.

This scenic site is accessed through the peaceful woodlands of a private estate (you’ll be given a key code for the gate ahead of arrival) so it’s worth bringing along plenty of supplies to ensure you don’t have to haul yourselves away too often. Corfe Castle, 15 minutes’ drive away, is your nearest source of shops (plus pubs and eateries) but there’s also a pop-up shop on site with cold drinks, milk and barbecue bits (both the meat and the wood required to cook it).

Smart glamping options are well spaced around the site for peaceful slumbers – they all have access to drinking water, regularly-scrubbed portaloos and a hot shower.

    Stunning location with panoramic views, beautiful sunsets and plenty of stargazing to be done. The beds were very comfortable, showers were hot. We enjoyed the tasty stone baked pizzas and breakfast butties. Loved that we could have a campfire too. The owners are so friendly and couldn’t do more to help you out. The gorgeous playful collies were the star attraction for my 12 yr old.

    Not a fan of a portaloo but they were the cleanest ones I’ve used!

    What a find this site is! I've been to Poole and Swanage before, but the location of the campsite is just so peaceful and beautiful, right by the water, but with gorgeous views across to Poole and the islands in the harbour. A great place to chill out, but still in reach of The bell tents are nicely spaced out so you don't feel on top of other groups, and there is loads of space for kids and dogs to run around and play without disturbing anyone. I was also really pleased that bacon sandwiches for breakfast and pizzas for tea were on offer too, and they were really good! We only stayed for two nights, but I had a bit of an explore with the dog and it looks like there are so many paths around to Studland and other countryside areas for walks or bike rides. Loved being able to have a camp fire too!

Local attractions

You may possibly decide simply to stay put for the duration of your stay but it really is worth getting out to see a bit more of your splendid Purbeck surrounds. Start by getting a feel for coast and countryside by bringing along kayaks to launch from the site’s jetty, or heading out on walking or mountain bike trails around the peninsula.

Once you’ve pottered locally, set out for some of the area’s other pretty spots: perhaps the famed ruins of Corfe Castle (15 minutes’ drive), the nature reserve and stunning beaches at Studland Bay (20 minutes), the fossil-foraging beach at Kimmeridge (half an hour) or the huge stone arch at Durdle Door (40 minutes).

Something for the kids (and the big kids)? Try a steam-hauled ride on the Swanage Railway (15 minutes), floating inflatable madness at Dorset Adventure Park (15 minutes), rural animal-spotting at Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park, watching the apes in action at Monkey World or wandering among the military heavyweights at The Tank Museum (all half an hour).
