Dorset Country Holidays
Blackmore Vale Caravan & Camping Park, Sherborne Causeway, Shaftesbury, Dorset SP7 9PX
Life is all about decisions: Jam or marmalade? Ant or Dec? In Cool Camping land, 'to glamp, or to camp' is the question we ruminate over. Thankfully, we know a place that takes the phrase 'spoilt for choice' to a whole new heights.
No place typifies Dorset's pastoral essence more so than Blackmore Vale. The very heart of Hardy country, this lush landscape in the county's bucolic north, is a fabled patchwork of rolling green hills and rich, heather-carpeted escarpments. In short; the great outdoors with a capital G-R-E-A-T! And at just a couple of hours drive from London, it's the ideal destination of choice for world-weary urbanites who want to get away from it all. Nestled within Blackmore Vale Campsite, Dorset Country Holidays takes this unspoilt pocket of the south-west and transforms it into a glamper's dream. For this long established (since '06) luxury camping operation must provide the most extensive choice out glamping accommodation options we've ever seen. Choose from (deep breath) bell tents, vintage caravans, yurts, shepherds huts, tipis, airstreams, pods. There's a whole host of quirky abodes including a dinky retro teardrop caravan (sleeping two), furnished VW campervan tent (perfect for a family of four) plus the über-luxurious wooden stargazer pod and the cool hybrid safari pod brings the glamour of a Savanna excursion to the Dorset countryside.
As one would expect of such a slick operation, the facilities at Blackmore vale are first rate. Glampers are also offered a whole host of extras ('bed warming' anyone?) and there's a wealth of fun activities to enjoy with everything from paintball and falconry (offsite), to sausage-making and archery (onsite).
Calling all ladies: Dorset Country Holidays offer bespoke hen party packages. With hot tub hire, perfume creation, cocktail making and, of course, the obligatory 'fellas & fig leaves' package. So whether you're looking to savour the delights of rural Dorset with the family, or indulge in some hen-do hi-jinks with the girls, look no further than this glamptastic, well-run site in one of England’s most magnificent settings.
