The stunning Dorset scenery at Coppet Hill Glamping promises to take your breath away from the moment you arrive.
Peacefully surrounded by rolling hills that give way to arresting views of Lyme Bay and the sweeping World Heritage Jurassic Coast – just three miles away – the 600-acre family farm is an ideal setting for a fresh escape into nature.
Here you can relax amongst woodland that’s teeming with wildlife and whispering trees… not to mention shimmering ponds peppered with wildflowers, and in the summertime, a ten-acre golden sunflower maze!
Naturally, the accommodation you’ll discover here continues the farm’s sustainable ethos, which offers a deep connection with the landscape and surrounding nature.
Ideal for small families, you’ll find Churchay Lotus Belle secluded in a calming meadow; a six-metre Stargazer tent complete with a kingsize bed, and two cosy camp beds for the little ones.
Generous facilities include a private bathroom shed and covered al fresco kitchen area with decking and seating, a crackling firepit… and a gorgeous Hikki wood-fired Nordic bathtub, nestled among the trees for outstanding views of the sunset-dipped hills.
Feeling a little more adventurous? Choose from two rustic Landpods, both sleeping up to 4 guests, and both enjoying the most beautiful locations imaginable.Keep reading

Two Hoots is sheltered by oak trees next to a wildlife pond; the perfect spot to breathe out and relax, perhaps with a good book! Meanwhile, Little Coppet is perched on a lush, green hillside, especially for you to savour views across the Marshwood Vale and its majestic hill forts.
Whichever Landpod you choose, you’ll have a double bunk bed to snuggle up in, with a bathroom shed and covered al fresco kitchen close by.
With everything you need so well covered, all that’s left to do is pull up a deckchair and watch the world go by, or light the firepit and await the arrival of the stars in that vast, clear night sky.
There’s a camping field close by, where you’ll find a comfy day room with a washing machine and a microwave, while nearby Purcombe Barn is home to a friendly tea room serving tempting treats.
If you’d rather expend some energy, there are over eight miles of footpaths and trails to explore, and guided wildlife activities to join throughout the summer, including bird-watching and pond dipping sessions.
And of course, should you feel the need to leave, you could hike to the Jurassic Coast, or around the Marshwood Vale.
(Oh, and if you ask nicely, the friendly owners will be happy to provide you with a circular walking map of their favourite local pubs!)
