General

Set in beautiful rural Dorset in the heart of Hardy country, Dorset Country Holidays offers a respite from the rat race with glamping accommodation set around the common.

Guests can choose whether they wish to come glamping in a yurt, bell tent, vintage caravan, tipi, shepherd's hut or the UK's first Stargazer wooden Unidome.

Most glamping accommodation includes an electric light, cooler/fridge, double bed, electric sockets, carpet/rugs, cutlery and crockery, gas stove, chimenea, barbecue and picnic bench.

Located on a three-star AA park, guests have full access to amenities such as showers and toilets.

We welcome couples, families, same sex groups and dogs. We can even help plan that special celebration, stag or hen break offering a wide range of activities and catering.
