Max Events: Lodge with hot tub, barbecue and verandah

General

  • Safari tent glamping on a secluded 40-acre site near Dorchester, Dorse
  • A 25-minute drive to Lulworth Cove and half an hour to Weymouth
  • Hot tubs and firepits; on-site activity centre for archery/quad bikes

What could beat a glamping holiday in Dorset? A glamping holiday in massive safari tents on a gorgeous rural spot near Dorchester, that’s what – and one with spectacular views over the countryside to boot. Even better, this is a group-friendly site, with safari pods that can be moved around to make private areas for family or friends.

Once in your spacious and insulated safari tent, all is about relaxing and chilling. Each one has private showers and toilet facilities, a living room with comfy sofas, a dining table for meals with your mates, and a fridge-freezer in the kitchenette.

Drift on to the verandah to chill and ponder those glorious Dorset panoramas, and outside get the barbecue going for a slap-up feast or huddle up around the firepit for a bit of stargazing when the night sky is clear.

A Max Events activity centre is also on site, offering weekend assault courses, archery, axe throwing and quad biking among many other entertainments; they all entail an extra cost. When booking the glampsite, please bear in mind that the weekends can get busy and occasionally noisy.

    We had a wonderful 3 night stay.
    *exceeded my expectations
    *beautiful views over the countryside
    *puts the glam in glamping
    *hosts Jax and Phil were so accommodating and kind, they were wonderful.

    Disliked: 

    The tent we had didn't have any toilet facilities, (there are tents that do have their own). The facilities were a bit further than I would have liked. The walk there was over uneven ground, and it was very dark at night. My youngest daughter walked into a pole in the dark and hurt herself. It wasn't serious, but it could have been. If we'd had one of the tents which had it own bathroom facilities it would have been better. But it didn't detract from the fact that we had a wonderful stay and will probably come back.

    We just got back from a 3 night's stay at this truly stunning place. it's ideal for families and children. Our two young girls enjoyed every second, the hot tub was a huge thumbs up, especially at night when it got a bit chilly. the tents are new, spacious, and spotless with a view looking over the forest and countryside.
    our hosts Jax and Phil were very helpful and meet our every needs. thank you for making our stay memorable.
    we will definitely be back next year.

Hi,

Thanks so much for the great review, I'm glad you all enjoyed the stay, it was a pleasure having you. Phil discovered a thank you note from the children when cleaning the tent and it made his day.
We look forward to seeing you next year.
Kind regards
James
