Old Bidlake Farm is a smallholding situated in West Dorset, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty known as the Marshwood Vale, three miles from the dramatic Jurassic Coast. Four classic Bell Tents tents, sit sheltered by hedges and wildflowers in a one-acre section of pasture field, with backdrop views of Pilsdon Pen, Colmers and Lewesdon Hills. A one minute stroll through the orchard leads you to the shower block and communal kitchen. There is plenty of space for children to run free, ride bikes or go pony trekking at the riding stables next door whilst you sit back and unwind. The experience we offer at Old Bidlake Farm is unashamedly Real Camping. Our approach is driven by happy memories of our own summer camping trips and the request from Jack (now 32, then aged 8!) that camping should be ‘As least like home as possible’ is forever ringing in our ears. So over the last few seasons, we have striven to create what we would consider being the perfect camping escape, with everything here ready for you so you don’t need a gigantic 4x4 and trailer to make it happen. A beautiful and spacious canvas tent, comfortable beds, all the cooking equipment you could need, cool stoves to cook upon and all situated in a peaceful rural setting with plenty of space and not too many other campers!
Shower DetailsWe have two family shower rooms. They each have an electric shower, hand basin and WC. We have designed them to allow parents all the space and privacy they need for children's shower times and we haven't forgotten to put plenty of hooks around for clothes and towels.
We are open from April to September and offer three-night weekend stays, four-night midweek stays and full week stays. Our prices range from £210 for a low season weekend to £460 for a full week stay in High Season. We do occasionally offer late availability two night stays at a discounted price.
