True organic, family glamping in the heart of the Dorset countryside
A seven-acre site full of ever-blossoming wild flowers and lily-lined ponds, Bloomfield Camping is the stunning result of ongoing dedication, love and passion by its genial owners, Jon and Amanda. Hidden at the end of a single-track lane, the site is home to just four beautiful bell tents, each secluded by budding young fruit trees. As they begin to reveal their hidden bounty, each morning dawns with the picking of fresh, dewy pears to enjoy over breakfast at your own canopy-covered picnic table – utterly idyllic.

It's perhaps the sheer space that is the most striking thing about Green Tourism-approved Bloomfield (Gold award, since you asked). With a maximum of just four families staying at any one time, this is a completely different experience to the more high-density campsites that are common throughout Dorset. With this comes a sense of quietness and calm that helps to characterise this place as a secret haven, hidden-away from the rest of the world.

Pitched atop timber decking, each six metre bell tent sleeps four, with a beautiful, king-size oak bed and two chairs which convert in single futon beds. The tents are comfortable, with sturdy oak-framed beds, bedside cabinets, rugs and lanterns; bunting and peacock feathers add a splash of style to the interiors. These homely abodes are clearly well-loved, maintained, and spacious, with ample storage room to tuck away those wellies after a day of rambling in the fields, as you dry off beside the roaring fire pit.

Each comes with a kitchenette equipped with everything you could possibly need, from crockery and cutlery to a gas oven and a cool box refilled with newly chilled ice packs every day. It would be a shame for those icepacks to go to waste, so do make sure the cool box is well stocked with plenty of local cider, perries and Dorset wines.

The other facilities are pretty comprehensive too; a compost toilet is tucked away in the bushes on the far side of the site and, for those of you who simply can’t be without hot showers and a hairdryer, there is also a brand new, completely solar-powered shower block, just on the other side of the field (complete with two flushing loos, basins and showers and a phone and ipod charging station for each tent).

If you wander off to explore amongst the flowers and trees, you’ll stumble upon some exciting finds. Beside the ponds, under a dense canopy of willow branches, a collection of hammocks tempt with the promise of an afternoon nap; children will no doubt be more interested in the rope swings that have been hung from the trees. Wander on a bit more and you may see Dave, the campsite’s resident peacock, strutting his stuff among the long grass.

Beyond the site’s gate, you will find tranquil walking paths, beside which wild berries and mushrooms grow in abundance. A climb to the top of the Iron Age hill fort that sits just behind Bloomfield offers the perfect location to enjoy a forager’s picnic whilst looking down upon this special spot.
