Secluded, private, pop up glampsite on a farm. Ideally situated to explore the Jurassic Coast.

Milton Meadow is the fruits of a labour of love between an architect and designer. Caroline and Scott, the site's owners, have a passion for sustainability and during the lockdown they set about creating a haven on their land. Nestled in the quintessentially quaint Dorset village of Milton Abbas lies a secluded, private ‘Kit’ tipi. The small village is famed for Milton Abby’s stunning grounds, designed by Capability Brown. Caroline and Scott are also very capable of making sure that you’ll have a comfortable and special stay in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where you can take the time to recharge and soak in the rolling hills and pristine, white thatched cottages.

In this simple yet private site, you have your own gas-powered shower and toilet inside a lovingly designed and undercover sweet yellow wagon, situated right next to your tipi. For cooking, Caroline and Scott have made sure that as glampers you have the choice between heating your beans on the gas stove, grilling your lamb skewers on the BBQ, or toasting marshmallows on the firepit. You may then round off the night by popping the kettle on for a hot choccie while you chill out in the dining area provided. All bedding and towels are provided for the double bed and two singles. With the tipi snuggly situated in a woodland clearing on the farm, the night owls will keep you company while you stargaze through the trees — or perhaps you’re up for playing a round of gin rummy, using the deck of cards provided.

With Caroline and Scott making sure the important things are taken care of, you’re free to have your own little haven of private paradise. You are also ideally situated to explore the spectacular Jurassic Coast, which is a hiker's dream with the vast amount of walks on offer, such as the Jubilee trail which traverses right through the farm. With Dorset now a firm favourite among campers, Milton Meadow is still a secluded glampsite set away from the crowds.

The Owner Says

Surrounded by flora & forna, the Kit tipi is situated on a working farm close to the charming thatched cottage village of Milton Abbas. Milton Abbas is famed for its Abbey, which is now an independent school, the grounds of which were designed by Capability Brown. A quiet and secluded spot, the tipi is nestled within a woodland clearing and boasts views of rolling hills and grazing cows. In an area of outstanding natural beauty.
 
The Kit is named after Dorset dialect for friends & family; it sleeps upto 4 people and would suit a family, group of friends or as a romantic couples retreat. Stargazing is wonderful from the farm and owls can be heard from the coppice by night.
A private campsite, you will have the shower & toilet block to yourselves along with outdoor cooking facilities. Please note that the far end of the site there is a cabin, please respect the comfort and privacy of the other guests.

Getting There

If travelling by car, take the turning at the Milton Arms on the A354, follow this road for approximately 2 miles and take a left sign posted Milton Abbey this will take you down through the hill past the thatched cottages of Milton Abbas, continue along this road past the lake for another mile. You will see a sign post for Milton Meadow on your left. Follow this track until you see the gate into our site on the right hand side. Here we ask that guests park in the car park provided and walk the 100m to the Tipi site. A luggage trolley is provided.  The closest train station is Moreton, a 15 minute taxi ride can be taken to the farm, if you are happy to explore the farm and amazing walking options we suggest the train is possible. However, a car will leave you better placed to explore the wider Dorset area including the Jurassic coast.
