A background soundtrack of chattering chimps, laughing lemurs and trundling tanks makes for a fun vibe at laidback Longthorns Farm, an attractive rural site close to Dorset’s jaw-dropping Jurassic coastline.
You can stroll directly into Monkey World from Longthorns Farm to eyeball your noisy neighbours, and there is plenty more fluffy fauna about: alpacas, horses, sheep and chickens are among the friendly farm animals on site, and guests regularly spot deer, bunnies, buzzards and owls along the woodland trail. Walk a little further and you can track down those tanks, at Bovington Tank Museum.
After a busy day exploring the delights of Dorset, toast marshmallows over the embers of your firepit and kick back for a bit of stargazing, before snuggling up in a romantic shepherd’s cabin for the night...
The on-site honesty shop is another nice old-fashioned touch: it stocks essential provisions, including all the key ingredients for a slap-up breakfast, sourced locally and reasonably priced.
A brand new toilet and shower block are in the offing too.
Please note there is no electricity supply in the huts from April to September
