We are absolutely thrilled and delighted to have won the Gold glamping business of the year Award presented to us at The Bovington Tank museum. This Dorset tourism award celebrates the very best in Dorset tourism and also as a county heat for the South West and National Visit England Awards!
“This site has a wow around every corner. The 2 shepherds’ huts and the gypsy caravan are all unique and stunning both externally and internally. The views are amazing. The interiors are charming and quirky. The site offers a real experience and the owners are very welcoming.
The accommodation is spotless, and the general areas well maintained. The huts have their own bathrooms and compost loos. The caravan has its own shower room and traditional toilet. Each hut also has a fire pit, BBQ and outside seating. There is an outdoor kitchen which is very well equipped and again everything is upcycled and in keeping with the vintage feel of the site. A tuck shop adds more value by offering sweets, local icecreams, wood and other items. Guests can have a cooked breakfast at the house for £10, or opt for a breakfast hamper. Each hut has a welcome pack. There is a garage “museum” on site which the owner is very happy to show you.
The owners are passionate about their business and communicate this joy and enthusiasm to anyone visiting them. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and they certainly go the extra mile to make their guest stay a comfortable one.
Everything from the huts and caravans to the interiors is upcycled. Recycling on site is strongly encouraged. Compost loos. Water is harvested. Food is locally sourced or home grown. Local businesses are actively promoted.
The owners were so welcoming on arrival and departure we felt we left as old friends.
A beautiful and unique glamping experience in stunning countryside. The owners’ enthusiasm and passion for what they are doing is tangible on every level. Nothing is too much trouble for them and their passion for upcycling is catching! A real labour of love and visiting/staying is a fascinating insight into another age.”
