Bring your tent and set up camp in our lovely woodland in West Dorset. You will be alone with the stars at night and wake up to birdsong in the morning. Make use of nearby facilities at our roundwood barn, including outdoor sink, compost loo, fire circle and outdoor hot shower. We offer complete seclusion as we only have one camping group at a time. Maximum 6 people (well-behaved dog allowed).

O Espaço

On arrival, you drive 300m along a woodland track to a gate and into a private area of our woodland (no walkers). You park by our barn which is set in a lovely secluded woodland clearing. You walk a few metres through the trees to a flat camping space that overlooks a gully (site of nature conservation interest) and put up your tent (or tents). Then it's just you, your family/friends, the stars and the woodland creatures. We occasionally use the area around the barn for a Forest School session and we may be working there during the day. Other than that (and always at evenings/night/early mornings) you will have the woodland to yourselves. It is a sublime experience!

Acesso de hóspedes

You are welcome to use the outside sink and outdoor hot shower at the barn and there is a basic forest loo nearby (long-drop). Although the barn will be locked, you can shelter/eat in the large open-sided area of the barn if it rains. There is also a large fire circle in the clearing, which is great for campfire cooking.

Interação com hóspedes

We do not live on site - we live in nearby town of Beaminster.
We will be available to help with anything but will leave you in peace to enjoy the woodland.
Firewood (at £5 per bag) and local charcoal is available to buy from us.

Outras coisas a ter em conta

This is wild-ish camping for self-sufficient campers! Bring your own tent (or tents) and everything you need.
There is hot and cold water to outdoor sink and outdoor shower (heated by a calor gas boiler, which can be temperamental but we are available to sort it out, if necessary!). Water is mains water so is drinkable.
There is NO electricity so no lighting (great for star gazing!). Don't forget torches/camping lights!
We wish to protect the site and facilities from over-use and have set a limit of 6 people at a time camping (including children). We would consider allowing a dog but not one who will keep disappearing to worry wildlife. We want to protect the beauty and serenity of the place!
PLEASE NOTE: You may leave bottles for us to recycle and vegetable peelings for compost but all rubbish must be taken with you when you leave.

We had a wonderful stay at Helen's campsite. We've been camping as a family for the past 7 years and all agreed this weekend, that this 'camp site' is our favourite. We loved the fact that we had the place to ourselves, star gazing at night was incredible. We used the dutch oven, fire pit and pizza oven to cook over the weekend - which was brilliant. We also thought having the half covered barn was fantastic - it meant we could leave all of our drinks/equipment here rather than moving between tents every so often - excellent! Helen is a great host - communication was always prompt and she was very detailed when corresponding with her. This site is a back to basics campsite- the composting loo is definitely on the rustic side. The outside shower was good - hot water for all 6 of us. Plus plenty for washing up over the weekend. Thank you once again for having us in your beautiful campsite - I hope you'll have us back in the next couple of years. Emma :)

Helen was a brilliant host, very friendly, informative and even brought us spare wellies after it rained on our first night! We couldn't have wished for a more beautiful location and hope to be back very soon!

Really great setting in the woods, nearish to the sea and easy to get to. Having the barn there is great for when it rains and there is a deck outside. Used the pizza oven which was fun. Spent hours sitting around the camp fire. This place would be great for anyone really. You dont have to be that outdoorsy because you have the undercover section, shower, toilet etc but it feels like you have a little bit of wilderness all to yourself. Local area is nice, its just outside a pretty village and there are decent shops not too far away.

Wow what a place!! Wished we had stayed longer. So peaceful. Ran out of time to use all facilities as hoped ie pizza oven (sorry Helen know you cleaned it out for us). It is wild, but seems we are drawn to this more rather than the larger more modern (usually noisy) campsites. Definitely be back when in that area, perfect for a get away from it all type break. Thanks Helen

What an amzing place! Helen was the perfect host, even making the tea as we found our way around. Everything was exactly as described and in reality was much more than we expected - it really is a little piece of Heaven. We loved it. Couldn't fault anything about the whole experience. Highly recommended. Thank you, Helen!

I have travelled to lots of countries but I love living in West Dorset. It is truly beautiful here - if you haven't visited yet, then you should! I have never seen anything worldwide that compares to the golden cliffs at West Bay, near Bridport. I like walking and swimming in the sea (when the weather allows!). I live with my partner and cat and work locally in education, including Forest School. A few years ago I did a solo walk from here to Exmouth along the coastal path staying at various b & bs along the way. It's nice to get away on your own sometimes and the garden room listing is for those who like the idea of doing so. We also own a woodland in the nearby village of Netherbury. We love to camp there and are now offering the chance for private camping for one tent (up to 6 people). Immersed in nature with only the stars and woodland creatures for company - it doesn't get better than that!
