Glamping in Dorset

Staying With Us

We call it Crafty Camping - luxury 'glamping' in an adults-only, hand-crafted environment.

Stay with us and our cosy bell tents and beautiful yurts, tipi and shepherds hut can be your home-from-home. You don't have to attend a course to enjoy our wonderful 'glamping' facilities, which include woodland showers, a sauna yurt and a communal yurt with games and craft library, while the 'Out of Africa' kitchen and pizza oven further help ensure a restful holiday with a difference.

We offer a peaceful woodland setting in Dorset, near to the Jurassic Coast 'World Heritage Site' and perfect for a short break or longer holiday. We're close to Devon and Somerset too - so we make a great base for exploring all three counties.

Green Woodwork Courses

Our green woodworking courses vary between two hours and five days, and are suitable for everyone: novices and experienced woodworkers; interested amateurs or anyone just keen to try something new. The two-hour 'Have A Go' courses are perfect if you just like to try your hand.

Projects range from carving a bowl or a spoon to making a chair from a tree. Our location is idyllic - in woodland that's cool and shady in the summer, warm and cosy in the winter.

We provide all the materials needed, personally and locally sourced as much as possible.

The workshop, with or without accommodation, is available for hire in its entirety, for example as a venue for team building activities. The Woodland Workshop is a unique location for film and TV work and was one of the venues for the BBC's 'Mastercrafts' and other TV series.

We look forward to welcoming you to the woods.
