“Great place to stay. Friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

We had 5 happy nights in our huge tent, furnished with all we needed beds, cutlery, cool box everything you require for camping.
Good amenities at the site 2 family sized toilets and showers. Nice sized shared kitchen area.
Our Hosts Nick and Sue are a lovely couple and have some good plans for the future of Old Bidlake farm, (Nick get working on that micro brewery).

All in all well worth a staying here.

Room Tip: Make sure you take enough bedding. But thats all you need.

We were three girls looking to escape London for a long weekend on the Jurassic Coast and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect getaway.

Nick and Sue have only just started their camping business and it's clearly going to be a great success. The four Lavvu style tents are spaced nicely apart in an acre of pasture field with wonderful views of Colmers and Lewesdon Hills. All you need to do is show up with your sleeping bag and a sense of adventure - your tent is already in place, air mattresses blown up and every conceivable camping tool (lamps, plates, cutlery, glasses, stove, kettle, first aid kit etc.) provided.

This isn't Glamping as the website says - it's so much better than that! It's proper camping without the hassle factor.

Old Bidlake Farm was an ideal base location for our trips to Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Lyme Regis, Axminster and Dorchester. Our evenings were spent drinking wine and consuming vast quantities of wonderful local food. Sue provides three hamper options brimming with top quality local produce. Our Ploughman's supper hamper was amazing!

A warm shower was never far away either - a one minute stroll through the orchard leads you to the shower block and communal kitchen. If this seems a bit of a stretch in the middle of the night then each site comes with its own toilet tent with a camping toilet inside. Haven't they thought of everything? There's even some very cute bunting draped across the kitchen entrance.

We had a blast. Nothing beats waking up to the sounds of the farm yard, drinking a cup of freshly brewed tea, taking in the quiet of the countryside. Thank you Sue and Nick for a brilliant stay. We wish you a long and successful venture.
