Cosy en-suite yurts with acres of space, campfires, a hot tub and wild swimming on site.
There are tricky decisions to be made at Walnut Farm Glamping. Do you want to stay in the well-established Russett Yurt with it’s unbeatable sunset views or do you fancy Pippin which sits above the cherry orchard? Or, perhaps, you’d prefer to lay your head in Bracken which is closest to the lake and handy for wild swimming. The agony of choice is yours to endure when making a booking at this glamping site on a delightfully-named and well-located 12-acre farm site in Dorset. There are five yurts on site, each with plenty of space and private en-suite facilities. The light canvas structures sit on larch decking with wonderful views, which differ depending on which you choose. But inside, each cosy abode features a similar scene. These are light and airy spaces with exposed wooden latticework criss-crossing its way to the ceiling, crowned in the centre with a circular window that pools in natural light and allows indoor stargazing at bedtime. The furnishings are in keeping with the style – Moroccan-style rugs, a cosy wood-burning stove and hand-carved bedside tables. These lovely rustic touches don't mean Walnut Farm lacks modern comforts though. You'll also find a Nespresso coffee machine and electricity throughout. Then there’s the fancy en-suite bathrooms each with an excellent shower, flushing loo and all the toiletries and towels provided. The whole place is a cocoon of glamping comfort. You haven’t settled in for long, however, before the view from your yurt’s open doorway draws you out. You can enjoy the scenery while you cook on your campfire or admire it as you swim in the lake. And if cold-water swimming is not your thing, you can always book a dip in the warm waters of the on-site hot tub or stick to exploring on foot. Set within 12-acres of farmland – a maze of fruit trees, streams and paddocks – guests have plenty of space to roam, with several footpaths leading directly from the farm. The landscape beyond provides countless options too. To the east, you walk through meadows and stroll over bridges to Loscombe Nature Reserve, a haven for birdlife, while to the west there’s the Half Moon pub, an equally short wander away. South, meanwhile, Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast unfurls before you – it’s around a 10-minute drive in the car – and then there’s the vibrant town of Bridport that stops you along the way (a particularly nice spot to explore if you want shops to hide in during a rain shower). Options abound and there may be endless choices but at least Walnut Farm solves one decision for you. Where to stay next time you go glamping in Dorset. Ahh, problem solved. Nespresso anyone?

Pippin: Luxury Ensuite Yurt in Dorset
Great Glamping Trip
We had a fantastic break camping in Pippin yurt. The views are stunning and the yurt was really comfortable for a family of four (plus dog). Our dog also had such a great time and has been a bit depressed since we returned home! Molly and Nick were great hosts. All in all I would thoroughly recommend and hope to return sometime soon.

Bracken: Luxury yurt with en-suite
My partner, two daughters (6 & 7 years old) and I stayed in the Bracken yurt 2 nights in February and we had an amazing time. It was cold, but we were prepared for it and wrapped up warm. Yurt was very well equipped (it had an en-suite and a kitchen next door) and the wood burner and heated blankets kept us warm all night. Girls were also warm and snug sleeping on thick mattresses on the wooden floor as we doubled up with sleeping bags. We all had a very relaxing weekend and particularly enjoyed a short walk over the hill to a nearby village pub for dinner. The area is stunning and hosts super welcoming and helpful. Nick even arranged an alternative accommodation for us for the night of the storm Eunice. I would highly recommend Walnut Farm to anyone wishing a relaxing time away.

Skylark: Luxury Ensuite Yurt in Dorset
Myself and partner Lewis stayed in the skylark yurt. We stayed one night for my birthday and it exceeded my expectations it was so beautiful we had a row in the swimming hole, then went for dinner in a pizzeria in town. Then popped a bottle of bubbly in the hot tub it was magical! The log burner and heated blankets made for a super comfortable nights sleep. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a little getaway. It would be perfect for a surprise weekend, for family’s partners no matter what age ! Can’t wait to book and come back next year!

Russet: Luxury Ensuite Yurt in Dorset
We stayed in the Russet Yurt which was the perfect location for us up on the hill and tucked out the way WITH a private kitchen. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful and everything you might need on the site for a relaxing getaway. Kitchen had everything we needed to rustle up a couple of easy meals (tea/coffee/sugar included was a nice touch). The bed is like a cloud and had the best sleeps there. The ensuite is perfect with a great shower. Loved it and would definitely stay there again. Thank you Molly :o)

The most unbelievable, and unforgetting weekend ever. My boyfriend suprised me with it for my birthday, and I didn't know what to expect! We live in London, I'm very attached to my make up and electronics etc and didn't know how I would find it! WELL It was incredible! Friday we got there, I was blown away by the views, the glamping tent itself THE FACILITIES! We used the hottub on the first night (an absolute must) and cooked a lovely meal in our private kitchen. Then on Saturday we went for walks in the apple fields, had a picnic, met the pigs on site, played with Heebie the lab and then had a night with the pizza oven (again an absolute must). On the Sunday we went to the beach a short drive away and had the most amazing walk there, then came back to go over to the local pub The Half Moon for the biggest and bestest roast I have ever had. Then we played beer pong on the tennis table and made a fire and had an early night. On the drive home on the Monday we were already looking at availability for the next year. Best holiday ever! Book it!
From the host
At Walnut Farm we invite you to slow down, relax and enjoy our luxurious glamping experience. We are situated in a truly secluded and tranquil spot in West Dorset on the edge of a nature reserve, where you are guaranteed a unique and peaceful break with spectacular views. Nick and Molly bought the farm in August 2015 and live in the farmhouse, which dates back to the 16th century. The farm land extends to 12 acres and includes a designated ancient orchard called 'Gore Orchard', which is the oldest in the area and dates back to 1930. There is ongoing work to regenerate the ancient orchard, which is bursting with wild animals and flowers (and of course, apple trees!) There are various springs on the farm and they plan to regenerate the land as organically as is practicable. They have planted wild flower meadows below the yurts and would like to add to the already bustling ecology and biodiversity that exists on the farm. You are almost certain to hear the owls, buzzards and woodpeckers that all live in trees surrounding the yurts. It is truly magical - the birdsong can be almost deafening! West Dorset is an area of amazing contrasts, where you can lose yourself in breathtaking scenery, absorb its heritage and history or simply relax in one of the most stunningly beautiful and diverse parts of England. ​ Despite being tucked away in beautiful countryside, our farm is less than 5 minutes drive to the vibrant market town of Bridport and pretty harbour of West Bay, part of the impressive Jurrassic coastline, a 'World Heratige Site', making us perfectly situated to explore this spectacular area. Surrounded by the most idyllic network of footpaths, you can walk directly from the farm for miles. Whether you prefer hiking up hills, sauntering alongside brooks and streams or through nature reserves, there are miles of paths to choose from. There is a meadow at the bottom of the orchard with a natural swimming lake. ​
Nearby attractions
Walnut Farm is less than five minutes' drive to the vibrant market town of Bridport and pretty harbour of West Bay, part of the impressive Jurassic coastline, a ‘World Heritage Site’. There is a scenic coast road running along the back of Chesil Beach that connects Bridport to Weymouth (through Burton Breadstick and the lovely village of Abbotsbury – the Swannary (01305 871858) there is a must-visit.). In the opposite direction past Charmouth (fantastic for fossil hunting) is the small, elegant seaside town of Lyme Regis with its impressive cobb.
Food and drink
There are plenty of independent food shops in both Bridport and Beaminster and a lovely farm shop at Washingpool Farm (01454 632529). There are also some top fresh fish merchants, including Davy’s Locker (01308 456131) in Bridport and Samways Fish merchants (01308 422201).

For a less formal meal, then check out the Hive Cafe (01308 897070) at Burton Bradstock and the Watch House cafe (01308 459330) at West Bay. The Half Moon pub (01308 488321) is the nearest – within walking distance of the campsite. On a Sunday, the roast at The Three Horseshoes (01308 897259) in Burton Bradstock is tough to top.
