A magical campsite quietly tucked away in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and just three miles from the dramatic Jurassic Coast in Dorset.
Situated in West Dorset's stunning Marshwood Vale, just thee miles from the dramatic Jurassic Coast, Old Bidlake Farm's four pretty Bell Tents offer the perfect blend of camping and glamping.
Since 2011 Old Bidlake Farm have been offering the chance of sleeping under canvas, close to nature, free from the stresses of modern life.
In 2020, their tenth season, they offer the choice of hiring one of four furnished bell tents on the meadow field or BYO camping on one of the four spacious pitches in the Orchard.
For couples a classic caravan The Bluebird offers the perfect rural escape. Out of peak season there is the opportunity to hire the entire site for exclusive use.
At each pitch there is a wood fired rocket stove and picnic bench. There is a communal field shelter on the main field, with a covered dining area, camping stove and wood fired pizza oven.
A one minute stroll through the Orchard leads you to the Barn where you will find a fully equipped kitchen, flushing toilets and electric showers, and the ‘Rainy Day Room,’ a large communal area to socialise and dine together.
Most of all they give you space:- for children to run free, ride bikes or go pony trekking at the riding stables next door and for you to sit back, unwind and just let life take a slower pace for a while.
Many campers return year after year to Old Bidlake and say that the campsite holds a magical charm that makes it like no other.
To preserve the tranquillity and special atmosphere of the campsite there is a maximum of forty guests at any time.
Please note that regretfully they are unable to accommodate dogs.

At just 12 foot long we fondly refer to the Bluebird as our ‘Bed in a Box’, but you will be hard pressed to find a more comfortable sleep when camping, and it’s perfect for a cosy romantic getaway. The Bluebird is pitched in a secluded corner of the Orchard close to the barn facilities and with an electric supply to power heating, lighting and a mini fridge. Outdoor seating is sheltered under a pretty arbour, carefully sited to make the most of Bidlake’s stunning sunsets.

Sheltered by blackberry laden hedgerows and conveniently situated for the Barn the Orchard is home to four extra large ‘Bring Your Own’ Pitches. Each pitch has its own picnic bench and rocket stove but what really makes them special is access to the campsite’s communal cooking facilities. It really does mean that you need to bring very little more than your own tent and bedding.
