Blue Pool Camping: Bell tent exterior

General

  • Bell tents in a two-acre private section of the Furzebrook Estate
  • A five-minute drive to Corfe Castle; 20 minutes to Jurassic Coast
  • Beds, firepit and lanterns provided; private toilet for each tent

Blue Pool Camping is a pop-up Dorset glamping site in a rather fabulous location within the Furzebrook Estate and right next to the gorgeous Blue Pool Nature Reserve on the Isle of Purbeck.

Just a handful of tents are set up in the two-acre site here, so there’s plenty of space for everyone to relax (and plenty of privacy too, thanks in part to each tent having its own standalone long-drop compost toilet).

It’s all been set up in an eco-conscious off-grid manner, with comfy but modest furnishings. Beds, a table and solar lighting have been provided in the tents, but please note that you’ll need to bring your own bedding. Each tent also has a firepit (with a box of firewood and kindling supplied and more available to buy), an outdoor seating area and lanterns to help you find your way around after dark.

Whatever drinks and food you need for a fine evening by the fire can be picked up in Wareham, five minutes’ drive away; if you’d rather delegate cooking responsibilities, there’s a pub (with real ales) just under a mile away and a tea room by the Blue Pool for hot drinks, cakes, pasties and cream teas.

The dazzling Blue Pool, just next door, should obviously be top of your to-visit list, but there’s plenty more to keep you busy around here, including trips to Corfe Castle, Monkey World and the fab beaches of the Jurassic Coast, 20 minutes’ drive away.

    Deer walking past tent . Big fire pit . Provided fire wood . Plenty of space next to lovely gardens . Individual long drop WC . Friendly and helpful staff

    Disliked: 

    This was the first opening night and there had been a lot of rain . The tent carpet was very wet . Teething problems . Also for the price I’d expect few more facilities eg. Place to wash dishes . Recycling rubbish facility and as there are no washing places , showers or basins just a tap and hose I’m not sure that anyone could stay without this for any length of time . We had a good time though .
