Skylark: Luxury Ensuite Yurt in Dorset (3 at Walnut Farm Glamping)
The Owner Says
Skylark is a luxurious en-suite hand crafted yurt. Inside you'll find a Vispring super king bed, luxurious bedding, linen and towels. With bedside lights, fairy lights around the perimeter and a dual control electric blanket - we have added all the little extra details to make it a truly luxurious and magical experience. Sleeping in a round space with cascading roof poles and stargazing through the rooflight is magical!
There's a log burner to quickly heat the whole yurt, together with a dining table, sofa, chest of drawers and chairs.
The beautifully hand crafted en-suite bathroom is the epitome of rustic luxury. Clad in cedar from a neighbouring wood with a piping hot shower, flushing toilet, sink with hot and cold mains drinking water, heated towel rail and complementary organic toiletries – we have thought of everything.
Outside is a huge larch clad deck with dining table – perfect for al fresco breakfast, lunch or dinner, soaking in the beautiful views over our ancient apple orchard, across the valley and out over some of Dorset's finest countryside.
Next to the deck is your own Kadai firebowl area for campfires, bbq’s and cooking over fire.
Skylark has its own Kitchen Yurt with a fridge freezer, gas range hob, sink with hot and cold mains drinking water and all crockery, cutlery, cups, glasses and cooking utensils you should need - some guests cook extravagant meals, others just chill their bubbles... either way you should have everything you need!
Before you arrive we will fill your log basket with dried logs, kindling and firelighters. Further supplies of logs and kindling can be purchased on site if required.
You are welcome to use our wood fired hot tub during your stay. We fill it with fresh water each time and clean it thoroughly after each use meaning we don’t have to use any nasty chemicals. It costs £35 per day and we get it all ready for you. It's the perfect daytime activity to while away the hours in the beautiful Dorset countryside or for an evening of relaxation and stargazing!
We host pizza evenings around our wood fired pizza oven, serving up mouthwateringly good pizzas using homegrown and local ingredients on Tuesdays and Saturdays. We may be able to host a pizza evening on different days - please just get in touch. The cost is £15 for adults and £7.50 for children.
Beyond the Farm..
To the east, you walk through meadows and 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 epic Jurassic Coast unfurls before you; it’s a 10-minute drive in the car – and then there’s the vibrant town of Bridport that stops you along the way.

About Walnut Farm Glamping
Glamping only. Tents, campervans, caravans, dogs – no.
Walnut Farm is less than 5 minutes drive to the vibrant market town of Bridport and pretty harbour of West Bay, part of the impressive Jurassic coastline, a ‘World Heritage Site’. There is a scenic coast road running along the back of Chesil Beach that connects Bridport to Weymouth (through Burton Breadstick and the lovely village of Abbotsbury – the Swannary (01305 871858) there is a must-visit.). In the opposite direction past Charmouth (fantastic for fossil hunting) is the small, elegant seaside town of Lyme Regis with its impressive cobb.
Food & DrinkThere are plenty of independent food shops in both Bridport and Beaminster and a lovely farm shop at Washingpool Farm (01454 632529). There are also some top fresh fish merchants, including Davy’s Locker (01308 456131) in Bridport and Samways Fish merchants (01308 422201). If you fancy an extravagant meal, try the Hix Oyster and Fish House (01297 446910), the Bull Hotel and Stable (01308 422878), the Bridgehouse Hotel (01308 423371) or, on a sunny day, the Crab House Cafe (01305 788867).

There is a placard on the right hand side of the entrance that reads 'Walnut Farm'.
