Looking for a Dorset Rural Retreat or Glamping Holiday ?

Relax and unwind at Hobby Farm, our recently opened, peaceful, countryside campsite retreat in the heart of the Dorset Marshwood Vale, West Dorset, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are numerous footpaths leading to the nearby coastal beach at Charmouth and it is just a 10 minute drive to the bustling seaside town of Lyme Regis.  There’s also an abundance of wildlife all around the site with otters and ducklings to be found on the pond, horses grazing nearby and even a badgers set on the hill.  There’s also a  lovely country pub serving great food and ale just a 500 yard walk down the lane too!

Choose from our 9 non-electric grass pitches for tents, trailer tents, campervans or, if you are looking for ‘posh camping’ why not try one of our 2 well-equipped glamping Shepherd’s Huts, Otter’s Nest and Fox’s Den both  situated at each end of our fishing pond.

Whatever you choose, you can be sure of a relaxing stay at Hobby Farm Campsite and wake up to the sound of birdsong or the distant church bells.

Take a wander around the campsite...

" Beautiful setting, clean facilities and great shower, the lake/pond was full of nature and the view was incredible. The whole atmosphere is peaceful and very relaxed. Very convenient location for local sights"
