Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What an amazing place! Beautiful glamping tents in a glorious countryside setting! Carolyn & Clive go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and allow the perfect place to unwind! It's amazing how peaceful the area is and the stars that you can see at night are incredible.

I brought my two sons to Black Pig Retreats and we had a wonderful time! Spotless accommodation, beautiful setting, and we felt like we were miles from anywhere. The boys loved making camp fires and cooking sausages and chicken, not to mention the joy of toasting marshmallows. Luxurious kitchen and bathroom facilities. We will definitely go back and I really recommend this to couples, families and anyone who just wants a gorgeous change of scene.

We had a wonderful few days staying at Black Pig Retreats. The quality of the tent and furnishing were a treat - real glamping. That is just what we wanted as some of us are not campers but really love to get away from it all. The sun set on our deck as we relaxed after busy days walking, cycling and a trip to the beach. Carolyn and her team looked after us very well. Always there to answer any questions we had and even left out our order for our BBQ that day, as we were heading back after a busy day so the delicious local sausages and burgers were defrosted just by the time we got home and ready to cook! We have told many of our friends who are keen to visit too. We would love to come back and explore more of the area. Thank you

We had a lovely 3 night stay in Piglet at the Black Pig Retreats and will definitely be booking a return trip. The yurt and site set-up was great with a well equipped outside kitchen, fluffy towels and dressings gowns and a small on-site shop. The village shop/cafe are within walking distance, as is a pub and it was easy to get a short taxi ride into Shaftesbury (pre-book taxis though). A great balance of a seclude spot that away from it all but with everything you could need close by.

None of us had been glamping before so did not really know what to expect. It was incredible! The safari we stayed in was immaculate, clean and cosy. The beds were beautifully made and plenty of soft blankets were provided. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need. The site itself is tranquil and quiet and the view from our tent at the top of the hill was stunning. We would absolutely come back again! Thank you so much to our hosts at the farm for your warm hospitality.

We loved our stay at the Bothy for two nights. It was cleverly equipped and we came away wanting to build our own straw house! The owners couldn't be kinder and more helpful and we look forward to being able to go back We were really sad to leave. .

Simply marvellous. We booked the whole site for a 40th celebration with family. The weather was fabulous weather and the site was amazing for grown ups and children alike. So much space and land to roam around. The tents were very warm when the wood burner was on and the place had everything you needed. My family were in the top tent so had to time our showers when others weren’t having theirs but considering we were camping we could cope with it! Lovely to wake up and hear new lambs in the field next door. Carolyn was the perfect host. Thank you so much. A holiday to remember!

We stayed in the Mukota with our two children (6 and 8yo) and we all loved it, the safari tent is spacious and warm and beautifully furnished with luxurious bedding and a fab little kitchen area. The location is great and the play area out front was perfect for 2 boys who love to run and play football and throw frisbees. Excellent campfire area outside where we toasted marshmallows in the evening. We will definitely be back.
