The Guy Mallinson Woodland Workshop - the ultimate in crafty camping!
All year roound, visiting our beautiful Dorset woods offers guests a unique and unforgettable experience. Our luxury glamping facilities provide somewhere magical to stay in spring and summer, autumn and winter.
But don't just take our word for it! Our Woodsman's Treehouse has won a RIBA award and named the 'RIBA Small Project of the Year'. George Clarke's 'Amazing Spaces' and Grand Design's 'House of the Year' also featured it in their television shows.
Awards aside, our aim for all our guests is to make sure staying in south west England is enjoyable, with our luxury glamping creating a special blend of peace and glamour.
You are also very welcome to enjoy our peaceful woodland workshop, where we offer a variety of relaxing green woodworking courses.
Staying With Us
We call it Crafty Camping - luxury glamping in a hand-crafted environment suitable for all grown-ups of all ages. (The minimum age is 18.)
Stay with us and our luxury treehouse, a cosy bell tent, beautiful yurts, tipi or shepherd's hut can be your home-from-home. Our wonderful glamping facilities 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.
Our peaceful woodland setting in West Dorset is not far from Lyme Regis, Bridport and the Jurassic Coast 'World Heritage Site'. It's perfect for either a short break or a longer holiday in Dorset, and we're close to Devon and Somerset too. We make a great base for exploring all three counties.
Book With Confidence
We can all get fed up with looking for the 'best price' when shopping online. If you're staying with us, we we guarantee that the lowest price for ALL our accommodation is available when you book directly with us on this site.
A Luxury And Peaceful Experience With A Difference
Although we're 'Crafty Camping', you don't have to attend a course to experience a luxury glamping break, and camping isn't all about tents!
The Woodman's Treehouse is a totally private and wholly unique experience set high in the branches of a veteran oak tree. Alternatively, try the luxury of our tipi, our two yurts or our shepherd's hut. And our bell tent, at five metres, is cosy but spacious, perfect for many of our guests and is similarly well equipped, including with a king-sized bed. Whatever accommodation you choose, you will enjoy wonderful luxury and un-crowded, spectacular peace and quiet!
Green Woodwork Courses
Our green woodworking courses vary between two hours and two days and are available on most weekdays throughout the year. Our courses 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 for glamping guests who just fancy trying their hand.
Courses include spoon-carving and an introduction to green woodworking. Whatever you do, you'll be relaxing is in our idyllic woodland, where it's cool and shady in the summer, warm and cosy in the winter.
We provide all the materials needed, personally and locally sourced.
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.
