Walnut Farm Glamping

A pair of cosy private yurts, acres of space all to yourself and endless things to do on the doorstep.

There’s a constant fight going on at Walnut Farm and, try as we might, we can never quite pick the winner. It’s a two-way tussle between the yurts (in the red corner) and the surroundings (in the blue corner). Both are battling it out to impress you.

On first arrival, it’s the yurts (Russet and Pippin) that have you won. Situated in their own separate, private paddocks (the former in a meadow above the farm; the latter by the cherry orchard), the light canvas structures sit upon larch decking with wonderful views across the valley. Inside, each cosy abode features exposed wooden latticework criss-crossing its way to the ceiling, crowned in the centre with a traditional circular window that pools in natural light and allows indoor stargazing at bedtime. The furnishings are in keeping with the style – Moroccan-style rugs, a cosy wood-burning stove, handcarved bedside tables crafted from an alder felled just yards away. But Walnut Farm isn't lacking on modern comforts, like a Nespresso coffee machine and electricity throughout. Then there’s the fancy en-suite bathrooms each yurt boasts, with an excellent shower, proper flushing loo and all the toiletries and towels provided. The whole place is a cocoon of glamping comfort.

You haven’t settled in for long, however, before the view from the open doorway draws you out. The surroundings are next to win you over. Set within 12-acres of farmland – a maze of fruit trees, streams and paddocks – guests have plenty of space to roam, with several footpaths leading directly from the farm. The nearby cherry orchard is home to the Walnut Kitchen, a third yurt which houses a shared kitchen, with a sink, stove, cabinets and cooking utensils to use, and a clearing space for evening campfires.

The landscape beyond provides countless options – this isn’t a place for indecisive campers. To the east, you walk through meadows and stroll over bridges to Loscombe Nature Reserve, a haven for birdlife, while to the west there’s the Half Moon pub, an equally short wander away. South, meanwhile, Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast unfurls before you – it’s around a 10-minute drive in the car – and then there’s the vibrant town of Bridport that stops you along the way (a particularly nice spot to explore if you want shops to hide in during a rain shower).

Options abound and there may be endless choices but at least Walnut Farm solves one decision for you. Where to stay next time you go glamping in Dorset. Ahh, problem solved. Nespresso anyone?

What a little gem!

What a little gem we found! Booked the day before very last minute and were thrilled to find out we were the first ever guests to stay at Walnut Farm, and what a great decision it was.. Molly and Nick were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us, from the very minute we walked on to the Farm we were made to feel at home. It is in such a beautiful setting surrounded by rolling green hills and lots of trees; it really is a stunning place. The kitchen yurt has everything you need and more and we liked that it was in another small yurt which carried on with the glamping feel. Russet Yurt itself is gorgeous, and huge!! Filled with the highest quality furniture, the bed is the comfiest I have ever slept in (quite literally like sleeping on a cloud!), the Ensuite bathroom is like a luxury bathroom you would find in a hotel but still feels rustic and smells like a sauna! My boyfriend especially liked the nespresso machine in the yurt. We were lucky enough to have a BBQ and eat al fresco on the decking, then toasted marshmallows on the firepit after, what more could you want when glamping? The stove in the yurt was pretty impressive looking and kept us warm and cosy, this was my boyfriends job as men love making fire right? We loved that all you can hear is sheep and cows during the day and owls at night which is so tranquil. We decided to get the extra continental breakfast one day and the English breakfast with local produce another and everything provided was delicious so would definitely recommend doing this. The location is great, minutes from the beach (the one on Broadchurch!) And we also went to Monkey world (would definitely recommend) and Weymouth. We had planned to go kayaking in Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door but unfortunately we did have some rain so got cancelled, but that gives us a reason to return to Walnut Farm! We walked over the field to the local pub The Half Moon and had an amazing meal and would highly recommend going here, the walk through the field with torches was fun in itself! We have stayed in yurts before but the feel of Walnut Farm and Russet Yurt and having lovely hosts will definitely be bringing us back here. Thanks to Molly and Nick, we will see you soon!

Definitely the most amazing place we have ever stayed!!! the yurt is stunningly furnished. Imagine a 5* hotel room but better and yurt shaped. Although it was the end of October the weather was beautiful , so we managed to have a BBQ outside the yurt on the first night using the fire pit. The en- suite was perfect, everything just like in the yurt is finished to perfection. The bed is the comfiest we have ever slept in- it was heavenly and the electric blanket made it very cosy. The lovely wood burner which we were provided with plenty or logs and kindling for and fairy lights made our stay even more magical . Then there is the kitchen yurt with everything you need to cook your gorgeous homemade/ local produce breakfast Molly can provide you with. It was gorgeous and sitting outside in the morning sunshine was very special. Molly and Nick ( and there family ) are literally the kindest most obliging people you will ever meet and they couldn't do more for you. They were so lovely at all times. The short walk over the fields to the Half Moon pub for a really yummy meal was fun and we were very pleasantly surprised by what a lovely pub it was -the food we can highly recommend. If you want to getaway from it all and have a really magical experience in a beautiful location this is the place for you . Molly and Nick thank you for everything . X X X
