Jurassic Glamping - Site Layout
Our Site
Our long-term vision for the farm is to greatly improve the biodiversity of the whole site by turning the paddocks into new woodland. In 2017 in collaboration with The Woodland Trust we planted 2,700 new native broad-leaf trees. This will join up two existing areas of woodland on either side of the farm and eventually create a much larger continuous habitat for the badgers, deer, foxes, rabbits, woodpeckers, owls, buzzards and countless other bird species which live in and around the site. The camping fields total around 10 acres so there's lots of space to wander around and enjoy. In addition to the six tents there is a small children's play area and a new honesty shop and laundry for guests to use.
Our Location - The Coast
They say location is everything and we couldn't agree more. We are perfectly situated so you can explore the spectacular World Heritage Jurassic Coast of Dorset and Devon. Charmouth Beach with its excellent Heritage Coast Centre is only 10 minutes away as is the delightful seaside town and calm swimming beach of Lyme Regis, famous as the home of Mary Anning, fossil hunter extraordinaire of the 19th century. You can take a mackerel fishing trip from the harbour at Lyme and hire kayaks and paddle boards. The heavenly little fishing village of Beer is only a short drive away too. If walking is your thing, then the South West Coastal Path is a must, with lots of great seaside pubs dotted every few miles.

Our Location - The Countryside

In addition to all of the wonderful coastal attractions there are many great places to visit inland. The small market town of Axminster is only just over a mile from our site so is easily walkable down the bridle path which runs down the side of the property. Market day is Thursday where you can buy many tasty treats and for foodies there is the fabulous River Cottage Canteen in the marketplace which is open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The River Cottage HQ is only a couple of miles away and runs a variety of courses throughout the year. 

The nearby town of Bridport is a hub for artists and has many galleries and exhibitions as well as lots of wonderful shops and cafes, a perfect place to spend an afternoon. Also well worth a visit is Forde Abbey, a stunning 900 year old former monastery with extensive gardens which is only 15 minutes away. At Seaton you can take a ride on the Tramway from the coast up to the wetlands nature reserve and for the kids there is the brilliant Seaton Jurassic interactive museum and the Pecorama miniature railway in Beer.
