Dorset Forest Garden Glamping Information


Set in peaceful beautiful surroundings, Dorset Forest Garden is the perfect place to star gaze in comfort thanks to our dark skies. Within the forest garden you can choose between individually styled shepherd’s huts, each filled with an eclectic mix of vintage furnishings and lit by LED lighting and candles for a nostalgic touch. Each is positioned to soak up the stunning views. When you’re not eating out you have a choice of ways to cook - you can do open-air cooking over your fire pit, cook inside your accommodation or, for the Artisan and Forager huts, there is the BBQ hut which is big enough to share comfortably with others if you are coming with a larger group. The Astronomer shepherd hut is set apart from the forest garden in its own space by a small copse chosen for its spectacular views; this has its own private covered BBQ area. For romantic escapes Dorset Forest Garden Glamping offers peace and quiet set in 20 acres nestled in the heart of Dorset’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to the Jurassic Coast. The three shepherd’s huts have their own private hot tubs, and all the accommodations have their own private ensuite facilities. Although you may not feel like leaving the forest garden, you’ll find much of interest in the vicinity. There are many local places to eat and drink (several award winning spots right on the doorstep). Beautiful West Dorset is such a diverse county. Rolling countryside, dramatic cliffs, sweeping beaches, idyllic villages (right out of a Thomas Hardy novel), and bustling towns (Beaminster and Bridport are a must visit!). We are just 8 miles from West Bay on the Jurassic Coast (aka ITV’s fictional town Broadchurch). There is a network of bridleways and footpaths straight from our entrance – making days out walking really easy and accessible.

We have been passionate about the environment for years. It led us to build our Eco home in 2008. It was pioneering in its use of passive solar in the UK at the time. We have taken this same concern into the development of our glamping business here in beautiful Dorset, resulting in our Green Tourism award. What we’ve done: All our electricity is green, either generated by us or from other renewable sources. EV charging is available to our guests with electric vehicles. We not only use local skilled crafts people, we also carefully source and restore vintage furniture for our accommodation. Food Hampers contain local produce celebrating the wonderful producers we are so blessed to have around us. We produce our own handmade soaps using all natural ingredients and essential oils (which smell divine) . Environmentally friendly cleaning products like Ecover are provided for your use and are used during change over. We reinvest both in charities we support and in adding trees to the Forest Garden every year. Your visit helps this to happen.
