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.

Maju is situated just past the well sign-posted River cottage HQ. From Dorchester or the east, head west on the A35 towards Axminster. After about 20 miles take the third exit to stay on the A35 towards Axminster and Hontion. Three miles after this, you will pass the Hunters Lodge pub on your left. Continue for about 150 yards and take the next turning on the left on to Trinity Hill Road. After a mile, the entrance to River Cottage HQ is on the right. Maju Glamping is just beyond the car park. From the west, take the A35 towards Dorchester and about two miles after the Texaco garage, turn right on to Trinity Hill Road.
