5 large en suite safari lodge tents, each sleeping 6 on our working dairy farm. Fabulous location in a secluded field, halfway between Corfe Castle and Swanage. The farm nestles underneath Nine Barrow Down which forms part of the South West Coast Path, a superb area for keen walkers or cyclists. Tents have proper beds made up ready for your arrival, a comfy leather sofa for relaxing in front of the woodburning stove, a well equipped kitchen area with hot running water, dining table and en suite loo and shower. Totally off-grid with no electricity. Tents are lit by oil and candle lamps and cooking is done on the large woodburning stove (with oven) or outside on the large Kadai BBQ/firepit. Great for families, groups of friends or for an unusual wedding venue! Less than 3 miles (5 min...5 large en suite safari lodge tents, each sleeping 6 on our working dairy farm.

Great for families, groups of friends or for an unusual wedding venue! Less than 3 miles (5 mins drive) from Swanage beach and less than 4 miles (10 mins drive) from Studland with its miles of sandy beach and nature reserve. A great base for exploring the delights of Purbeck or for simply relaxing on the farm, chilling out on the tent's decking, playing in the private field, collecting fresh eggs from our hens and visiting the milking cows and their calves. Up to 2 dogs welcome at £25 each - please note that all prices quoted will assume you are bringing one dog - please ask for this charge to be taken off if you are not bringing a dog before making your booking.More
