Things To Do Glamping In Dorset

Glamping in Dorset means taking advantage of the luscious surroundings. Waking up naturally to birdsongs, watching the breeze roll across the hills, or even just daydreaming among the clouds. But that’s not all though – there are plenty of historic sites and local lore to make you want to go out and explore. Take a page from our top suggestions for your upcoming glamping holiday:

Take a break and enjoy the outdoors.

Since it’s mostly a rural county, Dorset is filled with gorgeous landscapes. It’s the perfect escape from the urban settings of English cities. To start, you can visit Moors Valley Country Park and Forest, which is Dorset’s biggest nature reserve with over 1000 acres. The park is accessible from many glamping sites and has tons of activities for all ages.

Spend the day feeding farm animals.

Get your hands dirty and spend the day on a working farm! This idea is perfect for families, especially children who are fond of animals. Many glamping homes nowadays come with access to farmlands and their livestock, so if you have guest perks, why not make a trip out of it? Help the owners feed their chickens, sheep, or horses. Meet the friendly farm dogs and maybe even go apple-picking at nearby orchards. It’s a fun way to experience the country as a family and make new four-legged friends!

Learn about history on an educational tour.

If there’s one thing Dorset is best known for, it’s history. This southwestern town is where you can find the famous Jurassic Coastline. From the name itself, you can guess that these rocks and fossils date all the way back to the Jurassic period! The coast stretches for 95 miles and is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Book an educational tour, learn more about these landforms and treat yourself to the sight of Durdle Door!

Enjoy al fresco dining with your family.

Glamping means experiencing the great outdoors and that includes dining! Start your day by sipping coffee as you sit on the lawn and enjoy the early morning mist. If you prefer waking up later, brunch under the morning sun is definitely a must. For this part, cook up a classic English breakfast with a cup of warm tea. By lunch, you might want to gather on the picnic table and enjoy the lamb chops that you just grilled. You can also spend afternoon tea in the garden with some classic sandwiches. And for the romantic types, nothing sounds more dreamy than a candlelit dinner under the stars!

Grab your binoculars and go birdwatching.

It’s not surprising that Dorset is also rich in wildlife thanks to its thriving woodlands. For glampers who are interested in observing nature, it’s highly recommended to go birdwatching. Beginners can start their adventure at Durlston Country Park where they can check out the complete species list of coastal birds. And if you need help, there are park rangers around who are more than happy to show you around and share some tips!

Play exciting games with your friends.

Want to do something exciting other than walks or hikes? Spend the day playing field games with your friends! There are tons of exciting games that you can try – scavenger hunts are camping favourites. You can also raise the adrenaline rush by playing Capture The Flag. If you brought a ball, why not a casual game of football or volleyball? Some holiday homes include games in their bookings too. Play croquet on the spacious lawns or toss a frisbee with your dog. Make sure to have cards or board games so that you always have more laidback options!
