Three cheers for something deliciously different – Dorset Nectar Orchard Campsite is an adults-only park set on an organic orchard home to 3,000 mature cider apple trees a 15-minute drive from the Jurassic Coast’s West Bay beach.
The fruit is harvested from the farm each autumn, so the site operates on a leave-no-trace-ethos. Pitches are widely spaced – guests have 12 metres of room between each one – meaning there’s ample room for snoozing in serene surrounds.
You could also settle down on the numerous benches in the cider garden or bound over to the barbecue area and grill up grub. Raised firepits are available, and there’s wood to purchase for small, safe cooking by your tent.
But the best bit? This delectable destination has a tasting room – selling 13 types of award-winning cider, as well as apple juice, craft beers and apple cider vinegar – and runs tours of the farm and orchard on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Head off on walks on footpaths in the surrounding countryside and by the River Brit whatever day of the week, or potter to the pub about half a mile down the road to fill up on food. For other eats, takeaways deliver to the park and a farm shop is just outside Bridport, a couple of miles away. There are markets in the latter town every Wednesday and Saturday.
The site has a well-maintained, regularly sterilised unisex bathroom with two toilets and a shower (newly installed for 2020).
Open from 22/05/2021 to 18/06/2021
