Forget wet canvas and soggy sleeping bags, and enjoy a much more exciting and luxurious option with Lancombe’s Dorset Glamping experience!

If you’re looking for campsites in Dorset for a self-catering holiday with a difference, we are proud to introduce Marjorie and Ezmerelda. They are luxury Shepherd’s Huts that have been commissioned especially for Lancombe, an award winning holiday complex set in the West Dorset Countryside. These custom made luxury Shepherd Huts offers a stylish and cosy base for a romantic rendezvous for two, or an adventure in complete comfort for a family, all year round.

Marjorie and Ezmerelda are situated towards the furthest point of Lancombe, nestled in a peaceful corner of the meadow and the woodland; whilst still maintaining civilization with a shingled pathway for access. They are both perfectly equipped and ready for your self-catering, posh camping break.
Our glamping experiences offer the early risers an opportunity to watch the sunrise over the rolling hills and meadows of Dorset.

Both of these lovely huts sleep 4 people each boastinng their own ensuite shower room and toilet, kitchenette, and outdoor log store with access to all the facilities that Lancombe offers including free wifi.
