Marjorie and Ezmerelda are situated towards the furthest point of Lancombe, nestled in a peaceful corner of the meadow and the woodland; whilst still maintaining civilization with a shingled pathway for access. They are both perfectly equipped and ready for your self-catering, posh camping break.
Our glamping experiences offer the early risers an opportunity to watch the sunrise over the rolling hills and meadows of Dorset.
