A glorious glamping hideaway. Here, in a woodland clearing in Dorset, 10 miles from the Jurassic Coast, you’ll find a large yurt in an elevated position overlooking a pond. A romantic retreat, perfect for a honeymoon or weekend escape with a loved one.
This handcrafted woodland yurt shares a site with three luxury treehouses and is set in beautiful west country woodland in Dorset, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It’s an adults only retreat, perfect for couples who wish to escape and recharge.
The yurt is based in Dorset woodland, at the point where Dorset meets Devon and Somerset. It is 10 miles from the Jurassic coast at Lyme Regis and 16 miles from the coastal town of Bridport. River Cottage HQ, the brainchild of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is 7.5 miles away, where you can book a variety of cookery courses, as well as courses in curing, smoking and foraging. Head to the coast for beaches, boat trips, mackerel fishing and fossil hunting. Forde Abbey, a medieval monastery, is well worth a visit and right on our doorstep as the estate borders the treehouse woodland. There are lots of great places to eat and drink in the vicinity, the nearest being the Tytherleigh Arms, two miles down the road. Visit Pilsden Pen, the second highest point in Dorset for superb views across Golden Cap and out to sea. Or perhaps you’d like a tour of the Black Cow Vodka distillery, local vodka made from milk! Electric bikes are available to hire nearby and can be delivered to the woods.
Directions provided on booking. You can reach the site without a car - Southwest trains run hourly services from London Waterloo to Axminster (please note it’s essential to pre-book a taxi from the station).

The yurt is a spacious 18ft and is accessed via a boardwalk where it sits in an elevated position in the woods overlooking a pond. Inside you’ll find a king size bed with an oak headboard, a dressing table, sofa and chairs, and a heated towel rail. There are lights, electricity sockets and an electric blanket, and a log burner to keep you cosy.
Outside on your private deck is your outdoor kitchen. There’s a BBQ (which doubles as a fire brazier), a wood fired pizza oven, a fridge with ice box, a sink with hot and cold water, plus crockery, cutlery, utensils etc and a gas ring with kettle. Sit out here, or laze in the hammock under the trees. Just off the deck you’ll find your own private hot ‘tree shower’, a flushing toilet and a washbasin.
