“Glamping holidays with a difference at this luxury campsite, in a hand-crafted environment, within a beautiful woodland setting.”

Description of Crafty Camping

Welcome to Guy Mallinson’s Woodland Workshop, home to Crafty Camping in a wonderful woodland setting.

Visit our beautiful woodland site all year round to experience a unique and unforgettably enjoyable experience.

We call it Crafty Camping, glamping in a hand-crafted environment exclusively for Adults.

Stay with us and our cosy bell tent, treehouse and beautiful yurts, tipi and shepherds hut can be your home-from-home.

Enjoy our wonderful glamping facilities, which include piping hot woodland showers, a sauna yurt and a communal yurt with games and craft library.

While the Out of Africa kitchen and pizza oven further help ensure a restful holiday with a difference.

We offer a peaceful woodland setting in West Dorset, near to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and perfect for a short break or longer holiday.

We’re close to Devon and Somerset too so we make a great base for exploring all three counties.

As seen on BBC Mastercrafts, Amazing Spaces and Grand Designs.
