Haddon Copse Farm: The Retreat hut from outside

General

  • Peaceful car-free site on an organic farm in the Blackmore Vale
  • Within an hour of Jurassic Coast beaches, Stonehenge and Longleat
  • Farm produce sold on site; 10 minutes from fishing and indoor pool

Hankering for the heaths, and desperate for the downs? Have a look at Haddon Copse Farm in Dorset, a small and peaceful site with views across Blackmore Vale.

Although quietly rural, this scenic site is well set: a 10-minute drive from shops, pubs and supermarkets in the small town of Sturminster Newton, and at the centre of an area of castles and ancient monuments, clifftop heaths and secluded beaches. Indoor heated pool antics and coarse fishing on the lakes are at The Victorian Barn, 10 minutes' drive away.

Haddon Copse is part of a working organic farm and the shop sells home-reared chicken, lamb and pork, as well as eggs, milk, butter and locally baked bread. You'll have your own private firepit whichever accommodation option you go for here… so there's dinner (and breakfast, and second breakfast) easily sorted...

Nor will you need to worry about cars as parking is off-site here, meaning bags of safe space for everyone to stretch out and run about, savouring the fresh air and the views over the Dorset downs. This is a seriously pretty spot to settle down in overall: even the toilets and shower are tastefully surrounded by a newly planted orchard.

    Great bell tent. Lovely spacious field with amazing views. Good toilet and shower facilities. Eco friendly and well maintained.

    Details of what to do on arrival could have been clearer - very small text in an A4 page could have been more visible. Eg a big sign saying “just arrived? Read this now”

Stunning Retreat Hut Experience with excellent facilities!08/02/2020

  • Liked: 

    My partner and I stayed in the Retreat Hut for 2 nights. We loved everything about it from the moment we arrived at Haddon Copse Farm. The facilities were nice and clean and had enough information around the shared area (toilets and washing up facility) for any enquiries you have regarding the surrounding activities, local shops, nearby beach etc... The Retreat Hut itself was stunning! it's set amongst a lovely orchard and it had pretty much everything we needed to have a comfortable stay ( of course we brought out own food to cook! ) Our stay was made extra special as we got to enjoy the Farm's own produce which includes eggs, fresh milk, homemade bread, butter and marmalade- and these were all included in the package with The Retreat Hut. Our overall experience was great and we can't thank Tom and Mark enough for making our stay comfortable. We'll be back again for sure!

    Disliked: 

    Noisey kids from the neighbouring campsite (same campsite, just different area) - This was only one of two evenings we stayed. Tom had dropped by the following day to apologise for the noise the night before, which he didn't have to but was nice of him. He even tried to politely speak with the kids to try and minimise the noise. The parents should have really been more aware of their kids and the time noise restrictions. But hey! it's the summer holidays and it didn't ruin our stay at all!

    Peaceful location, helpful owner, good facilities and only a few tent pitches on site what made our stay very relaxing. No crowd, no rubbish around and nice views of the hills.

    Disliked: 

    Pop up dinner organised by the owner was extremely loud and prevented our kids from sleeping. It is a shame as the site’s policy mentions no noise after 20:30 and no recorded music allowed.

Local attractions

For further cracking countryside views, take a short hike up Hambledon Hill (20 minutes's drive) and have a ramble round the remains of the Iron Age fort.

If it’s castles you’re craving, Sherborne (25 minutes) has two: one 12th-century ruin and one lavish Tudor pile where Sir Walter Raleigh spent his retirement (by a lake where walks and fishing remain the pastimes of choice these days too). Further off, Corfe and Lulworth castles (both 50 minutes) make a contrasting pair of medieval ruins and 17th-century showmanship, and it’s an hour’s drive to ancient and spectacular Stonehenge.

Beach days? Sample the surfing action and cliff kayaking at Lulworth Cove (50 minutes), or go for peace and seclusion at Winspit Sands, where there's a walking path from Worth Matravers (an hour from the site).

Also an hour away, Kimmeridge beach and the surrounding Purbeck Marine Wildlife Reserve are top spots for rockpooling, and if you want to take your wildlife wanders deeper, there are underwater nature trails for snorkellers and divers. Or hit the heaths: purple heather-covered Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve is home to all six native British reptile species, as well as nightjars and egrets.

For wildlife on a bigger scale, meet the hairy charmers at Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre, or motor your way through the lions, tigers and elephants of Longleat Safari Park (35 and 50 minutes).

Must see

  • Hardy's Birthplace (11.5 miles)
  • Haynes International Motor Museum (13.8 miles)
  • The Tank Museum (14.4 miles)
