Higher Lewell Farmhouse: View from the bell tents towards our house, showing plenty of space for children to play

General

  • Peaceful paddock surrounded by fields on the edge of a quiet village
  • Central to the Jurassic Coast and 15 minutes' drive from the sea
  • Lots of space for kids to play; three-minute walk to the local pub

A pretty paddock surrounded by fields on the edge of a village is the name of the game here: behind a greystone farmhouse in Dorset, the bell tents at Higher Lewell Farmhouse are settled comfortably away from the action.

The site is central to the Jurassic Coast's spectacular seas and cliffs, 20 minutes from Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door and under 40 minutes from Burton Bradstock, Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Chesil beach, Studland, Sandbanks, Swanage and Kimmeridge. It's also 20 minutes from Monkey World and the Tank Museum.

The exceptionally roomy field at Higher Lewell has plenty of parking space, heaps of room for kids to play in (using some of the treats in the site's box full of toys) and more than enough space for your outdoor furniture, barbecue and whatever else you decide to bring to furnish your new home.

In the field close to the pitches is a camping kitchen with a fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle and charging points for phones; crockery and cutlery are provided, along with tea, coffee and sugar. Two toilets and two showers (both plumbed into the mains) are up here too.

Friendly dogs are more than welcome, but the site owners require that visiting dogs are completely comfortable and happy with cats, chickens and other people and dogs.

If you're partial to a pint or want to know where you can relieve yourself of barbecue duties and tuck into some tasty pub grub, then you're in luck: Higher Lewell is a very handy three-minute walk from its nearest local inn, where you can enjoy a tipple or two alongside good meals, all while taking in some smashing sunset views out on the terrace. The pub can cook you breakfast if you want to tuck in before a day of Dorset sightseeing.

Slightly further afield, there are also heaps of good eats to be had around central Dorchester, with lots of popular big eateries around Brewery Square and takeaways aplenty. Several more restaurants and pubs are at Weymouth harbour, 15 minutes' drive away, and several more pubs serving food are within a 15-minute drive at most.

Local attractions

Your hosts are more than happy to plan days out for you before and during your visit – they're big fans of Dorset and are keen for you to see as many of the best bits as you can during your stay, so have stocked up on plenty of maps, leaflets and even created their own sightseeing itineraries to help their guests get the most out of the their stay. Particularly recommended in the area are Monkey World, the steam train to Swanage, Weymouth beach, Bovington Tank Museum, Kingston Maurward animal park, Farmer Palmers, Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens and Bridport's famous street markets.

Buckets and spades of seaside opps are within easy reach of the site too: a 15-minute drive away, Ringstead is your nearest beach, and you're less than 30 minutes away from several other seaside towns and award-winning beaches such as Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Weymouth, Chesil Beach and Kimmeridge. Within an hour are Studland, Swanage, Sandbanks, West Bay, Charmouth and Lyme Regis; sea fishing trips can be arranged from Weymouth, Lyme Regis and West Bay.

For a spot of history, Dorset County Museum in Dorchester centre regales visitors with the history of the area's iconic Jurassic coast, and Dorset and Devon Military Museum provides smashing views over the landscape from the top of its keep. The stately home of Athelhampton House and Gardens is five miles from base, and the ruins of Corfe Castle lie a 20-minute drive away.
