  • Dorset glamping in luxury yurts
  • Proper beds, linen, electricity and woodburning stove in each
  • Dedicated wetroom in each with underfloor heating and flushing toilet

Hardy types go camping in all sorts of weather, and good on them too.

But, while you might be filled with admiration at those who pitch a canvas home on the side of a mountain in the depths of winter, there’s a lot to be said for luxury camping as well. A lot of luxury. Which is where Caalm Camp comes in, where owners Mark and Caryl have thoughtfully tested their toasty yurts in temperatures as low as -6, and found themselves with not a shiver in sight.

The Mongolian yurts here are in deepest Dorset but just an hour from the M4 and M5 and have every little touch you could think of for a very caalm camping trip at any time of year: proper beds and crisp bed linen for starters, along with fluffy towels, woodburning stoves (with logs provided), electricity to charge up the gadgets (essential), and a hob for first-thing cuppas before getting out of your PJs (also essential).

Each yurt comes with its own private and lockable shower room in The Old Hay Barn steps away, with underfloor heating, flushing hand driers and storage units for all your toiletry bits and bobs. The Hay Barn also has a communal kitchen where each yurt has its own fridge, cupboards and stacks of room to prepare food

Elsewhere on the site there are chickens to feed on the farm, a wooded play area for little yurters, and a communal firepit to gather at night. Fishing is available at Caalm Camp’s own lake or in the seven lakes at the neighbouring fishery, and for foodie supplies there’s a farm shop and the Kings Arms with food nearby.

Local attractions

This area of Dorset is bursting with things to do from wildlife spotting to cycling to sunbathing on sandy beaches: start off with a walk to Duncliffe Wood, an ancient woodland a mile away that's known for its carpets of bluebells in April and May, or clamber up to the prehistoric hill fort Hambledon Hill or to Bulbarrow, one of the highest hills in Dorset.

Local town and city trips include Shaftesbury, where there’s a Thursday market, pool, tearooms and restaurants. Also have a look at Sherborne, with its abbey and castle; Wincanton for the racecourse, and Salisbury with its medieval cathedral, award-winning museums and outdoor market twice a week. Stonehenge is also within easy reach.

Also easily accessible is the World Heritage Site the Jurassic Coast, about an hour’s drive away and packed with active options: try the cliff walks at Durdle Door, mackerel fishing, Punch and Judy and sand modelling at Weymouth, the sandy beaches at Studland or fossil hunting at Charmouth.
