Russet Yurt is a luxury en-suite yurt set on a large raised sawn larch deck on a beautiful secluded farm in West Dorset. With a super king vi-spring bed, a luxurious en-suite with a piping hot shower, a proper flushing loo and a sink with a backlit light above, Russet offers you a truly luxurious glamping experience you won't forget.

The Owner Says

Russet sits in its own private paddock above the farm, enclosed by a long sweeping living willow fence. You have your own private sawn larch deck to the front of the yurt with a table and chairs to sit and enjoy long lazy meals or a good book - the views of the sunset over the hill are not to be missed! Below the yurt on the grass is a copper fire bowl with a barbecue grill for creating the most wonderful barbecued food, or for just setting up a campfire in style!

A superking vi-spring divan bed will ensure an unforgettable nights sleep - not to mention the lofty White Company duvets and bedlinen and stacks of pillows. An electric blanket will keep you cozy on the chillier nights, with independent controls to ensure that if two people are sharing the bed, you can each choose your warmth! The bedside tables are crafted from an Alder tree that was felled less than 100 m from the yurt. Behind the bedside table you will find a double socket with a USB charger and a bedside light. There is also another socket behind the dining table opposite the bed, with two newly upholstered and very comfortable dining chairs.

​There is a double sofa bed with the most fabulous array of Moroccan and Indian cushions. It is very comfortable and even turns into a bed if you choose to share your yurt with someone or would like to bring a child, please contact me to discuss this prior to booking.

There is a little Indian tea table with a kettle, mugs, tea and coffee to ensure you can wake up slowly without having to leave the yurt. We don't provide the milk as we can't leave it sitting in the yurt prior to your arrival, however you can usually buy a pint ot two from the honesty shop in the supplies barn near where you park.

The lovingly crafted en-suite bathroom is nothing short of a masterpiece with beautifully soft strip lighting (you'll see what we mean!) and the most wonderful sleek but rustic feel. With a piping hot shower, proper flushing loo and basin with overhead lit mirror, we don't think you could want for more.

Tucked within the Cherry Orchard below Russet, you will find The Walnut Kitchen, which is a fully equipped yurt tucked within the cherry orchard overlooking our south facing valley, a stones throw from the yurt. The Kitchen includes a fridge/freezer, gas range cooker, sink, cupboard space and all the cooking utensils and crockery we think you will need to make it a delight to use. There is a huge copper fire bowl outside the The Walnut Kitchen for barbecues to die for and a campfire afterwards.

We have a wood fired hot tub that you are welcome to use during your stay. It costs £35 per day and we can get it ready for you. We can host a pizza evening in our wood fired pizza oven for you using local ingredients for £15 for adults and £7.50 for children. Both the Hot Tub and Pizza Oven can be booked in advance or once you have arrived.

About Walnut Farm Glamping

Suitable For

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 & Drink

There 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). For a less formal meal, then check out the Hive Cafe (01308 897070) at Burton Bradstock and the Watch House cafe (01308 459330) at West Bay. The Half Moon pub (01308 488321) is the nearest – within walking distance of the campsite. On a Sunday, the roast at The Three Horseshoes (01308 897259) in Burton Bradstock is tough to top.

So relaxing!!!

We recently stayed in Pippin, the Yurt was beautiful inside with everything you could possibly need and very clean. Pippin now has it's own separate kitchen, so no need to share. Molly and Nick were great. Molly was very helpful, giving us information on the best walks and some great places to eat. Pizza night is a must, as is hiring the log burner Hot Tub...bliss! We will definitely return!! 5 Star Glamping.


What a lovely tranquil place to stay. A place to switch off from the rat race. Such a warm welcome from Jazz in Mollys abscence. We stayed in Russet so much space, lovely kitchen. Hot tub for the Friday night was great, Full English Sat morning, walk to the Half Moon Sat night for a lovely meal. We saw pheasants, partridges, pigs, buzzards, stoats, Rabbits and deer.

An absolute must!!

Seriously where can we start. Tranquil, Peaceful, private. The yurts and grounds are just beautiful! Spotlessly clean. The most beautiful town to visit and so much to do. Lovely atmosphere with added touches such as a pizza night for those who wish to join. This was a lovely way to have a relaxed evenings entertainment and it had a real little community feel to it with the other guests. Our little one LOVED it, he made lovely friends there and enjoyed playing with them and seeing the Animals. I just hope we get to visit again one day. Well worth the journey. Thanks again guys x

Perfect getaway

Amazing 4 days in Pippin Beautiful views great attention to detail Recommend the hot tub and pizza night Molly and Nick the perfect hosts The half moon pub a 10 min walk which serves great food Would highly recommend for a relaxing get away Had some lovely evenings barbecuing on the fire pit Had your own privacy a great place to unwind relax and enjoy the views Plenty of lovely villages and towns to explore close by Hope to visit again 😊

A naturally peaceful escape

This site is like a little oasis, I loved it here. I was greeted by Molly upon arriving at her farm and that night happened to be home-made pizza night which was a telling introduction as to what Walnut Farm is like. I beautiful Yurt kitted out with all the amenities you could need, the separate kitchen yurt was idyllic (not to mention the addition of a tea station in the sleeping yurt is stroke of genius). I had everything I could possibly need, the hot tub was glorious on a slightly chilly evening as the sun goes down. The wood burning stove enhanced the warm and comforting atmosphere. I hiked up the nearby hill for sunrise and was not disappointed with a stunning view over the Dorset hills as the red sun appeared. The beaches are close by which was a bonus for me and my wild swimming habit! This place is incredible and I could not have wished for a better couple of nights to take my mind away from day to day work life! THANK YOU!
