Medway Farm Glamping: Askerswell village view from the camping field

General

  • Peaceful rental tents in the Dorset village of Askerswell
  • A 15-minute drive to West Bay; half an hour to Weymouth or Lyme Regis
  • Pop-up site on a family sheep farm; pub a short walk away

Make your way to Medway Farm Glamping for a Dorset break that’s easily accessed from the A35 and has gorgeous views over the village of Askerswell and the wooded hillsides all around.

This pop-up site has been set up in a field on the edge of a family-run sheep farm about 10 miles west of Dorchester. It’s a fab spot for exploring the Dorset countryside and coastline, as it’s not far from the Jurassic Coast.

Top spots down on the coast include West Bay (15 minutes’ drive) and the scenic spots of Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove (45 minutes), plus the sandy beach and family attractions of Weymouth (half an hour). Bridport (10 minutes) is your closest decent-sized town, and it’s got a farmers’ market, a brewery and plenty of places to eat or buy supplies – plus a leisure centre with pool for rainy days.

Closer to home, you can get your walking shoes on for a stroll to Eggardon Hill Fort, a couple of miles away, or just wander down to the local pub in about 10 minutes.

Although this is a pop-up site, it's a rather well-equipped one with designated toilet, shower and washing-up facilities for each tent; you’re welcome to bring along a barbecue too if you’d like an alfresco cooking session.

Please note

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

    Everything..the little extras like a fire-pit and wood and a bbq with charcoal. Comfortable chairs and even carpets. The individual, personal shower/toilet/washing up room was a brilliant idea. A lot of thought has obviously gone into providing everything visitors need. Just amazing!

    We had the whole field to our selves so was fantastic! There was fresh running water and two portaloos which were clean and had loo-roll.
    We couldn’t quite find the camp site but we rang the owner and he came and found us and led the way which was great.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike. Although to keep in mind, there’s no showers so it’s great if your not camping for too long.

    Tent very well equipped, proper bed for us and mattress on the the floor for both the children.( so much nicer than airbeds!). Staff very friendly and helpful, lent us fishing g rods so could fish there, very pretty peaceful site. There are only 2 tents there so you get a washroom/toilet each. Shower excellent and washing up facilities great. Will go back
