A bell tent site with unique tents and campfire feasts in countryside close to Lyme Regis

It’s no exaggeration to say that we’ve never seen anything like Maju Glamping before. That’s because this boutique site on the Devon-Dorset border is populated with 12 bell tents of the owners’ own design. It’s set up in a field on a farm to welcome glampers for relaxed summer stays in the great outdoors. There's a 300-acre woodland to explore, yoga sessions are available to book and the weekend crowd can join in with campfire-cooked supper clubs. All this, and the place is less than a ten-minute drive from lovely Lyme Regis.

This breezy and somewhat bohemian dream of a campsite has been conjured up by young couple, Liberty and Felix. They love this part of the West Country and they want to show it off. If you book in advance, you can enjoy yoga lessons or life-drawing classes with local practitioners on site and, if you’re here for the weekend, you’ve got a treat in store. Long trestle tables are laid up for sociable Saturday supper clubs with the feast prepared on the fire (make sure you book your place in advance for this). Occasionally, there's chilled music from local musicians too.

Maju’s bell tent glamping haven is situated in one of the highest points in Devon, offering views across farmland to the sea on a clear day. You can choose an unfurnished bell tent or a luxury one with beds, bedding and furnishings. Either way you’ll notice that these darker bell tents offer a different feel to many; patterned fabrics, scalloped edges and increased headroom are part of their custom-made appeal. Ultimately, though, despite the luxury tag, this is a fairly simple site. There are a couple of flushing loos, a couple of hot water showers, and an outdoor washing-up sink.

The real luxury is in the site’s added extras and its extra-special setting. It neighbours Hugh Fearnley-Whittingtall’s River Cottage HQ and shares the same lovely location. If you want to eat (or learn about) sustainable food, you’ll have to book far in advance but it’s not far to Axminster where the more accessible River Cottage Deli serves seasonal, daily deliciousness just right for a picnic to take to the beach. The closest place to reach Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is also one of the best and most popular parts; Lyme Regis with its cobbled streets, historic harbour arm and choice of beaches. If you can’t decide which one to visit; ask your campsite hosts. There’s nothing like local knowledge and there’s plenty of that here.



There are two flushing toilets and two showers on site as well as a washing up sink. Standard tents are rented unfurnished while luxury tents include a double bed with bedding, fresh linen, side tables, lamps and rugs. Campfires are allowed in off-ground fire pits which are available to hire on site. There's also a communal marquee is used for yoga sessions and life-drawing classes (if booked). On Friday nights there is occasional live music and on Saturday nights there are regular Campfire Feast supper clubs by local chefs.

The cobbled seaside town of Lyme Regis is less than five miles from site. Take a stroll around the Langmoor and Lister Gardens or take in the sea views from the beach or the historic harbour arm, The Cobb. Monmouth beach is a short walk away where you can see an ammonite carpet when the tide is out. Mackerel fishing trips are available from the harbour or, for something more exhilarating, join Lyme Rib Ride (07790 400300). There are fossil-hunting trips from Lyme Regis Museum (01297 443370) or from the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre (01297 560772) a couple of miles down the coast. A little further away, but recommended by your hosts is Seatown Beach which has a good pub (see below) and a strenuous but rewarding walk up to Golden Cap. You can walk over the cap to the unspoiled beach of Eype and catch a bus back to the Seatown (buses are every hour so be sure to check the timetable). Tunnel Tree Tops (07776 508106) award-winning high ropes adventure course is less than five miles from site.

Food & Drink

On Saturday nights, you can wander through into the trees to find the Forest Feast Supper Club events being put on as part of the pop-up. Local beers are on offer throughout the weekend in the same place from the Lyme Regis Brewery's pop up bar and there's a Camp Kitchen for breakfasts in the mornings at the weekend. River Cottage HQ (01297 630300) is right next door though you'll need to book well ahead if you want to get involved in any of its course or dining events. A little further afield the River Cottage Deli and Kitchen in Axminster (four miles from site) are also great places to try or buy sustainable, fresh produce from the farm or, just outside town, try Millers Farm Shop (01297 35290). For local wine, try Lyme Bay Winery (01297 551355), eight miles from site. There are plenty of recommended options in Lyme Regis including The Cobb Arms, (01297 443242) and The Harbour Inn (01297 442299) while Monmouth Pantry is a good place to stock up supplies. For a real treat and a taste of the sea, book a table at Mark Hix's Oyster & Fish House (01297 446910. Over in Seatown (10 miles away) The Anchor Inn (01297 489215) is a lovely spot for lunch or dinner after a bracing walk on the coast.
