Russet sits in its own private paddock above the farm, enclosed by a long sweeping living willow fence. You have your own private sawn larch deck to the front of the yurt with a table and chairs to sit and enjoy long lazy meals or a good book - the views of the sunset over the hill are not to be missed! Below the yurt on the grass is a copper fire bowl with a barbecue grill for creating the most wonderful barbecued food, or for just setting up a campfire in style!

A superking vi-spring divan bed will ensure an unforgettable nights sleep - not to mention the lofty White Company duvets and bedlinen and stacks of pillows. An electric blanket will keep you cozy on the chillier nights, with independent controls to ensure that if two people are sharing the bed, you can each choose your warmth! The bedside tables are crafted from an Alder tree that was felled less than 100 m from the yurt. Behind the bedside table you will find a double socket with a USB charger and a bedside light. There is also another socket behind the dining table opposite the bed, with two newly upholstered and very comfortable dining chairs.

​There is a double sofa bed with the most fabulous array of Moroccan and Indian cushions. It is very comfortable and even turns into a bed if you choose to share your yurt with someone or would like to bring a child, please contact me to discuss this prior to booking.

There is a little Indian tea table with a kettle, mugs, tea and coffee to ensure you can wake up slowly without having to leave the yurt. We don't provide the milk as we can't leave it sitting in the yurt prior to your arrival, however you can usually buy a pint ot two from the honesty shop in the supplies barn near where you park.

The lovingly crafted en-suite bathroom is nothing short of a masterpiece with beautifully soft strip lighting (you'll see what we mean!) and the most wonderful sleek but rustic feel. With a piping hot shower, proper flushing loo and basin with overhead lit mirror, we don't think you could want for more.

Tucked within the Cherry Orchard below Russet, you will find The Walnut Kitchen, which is a fully equipped yurt tucked within the cherry orchard overlooking our south facing valley, a stones throw from the yurt. The Kitchen includes a fridge/freezer, gas range cooker, sink, cupboard space and all the cooking utensils and crockery we think you will need to make it a delight to use. There is a huge copper fire bowl outside the The Walnut Kitchen for barbecues to die for and a campfire afterwards.

About Walnut Farm Glamping

A pair of cosy private yurts, acres of space all to yourself and endless things to do on the doorstep

At Walnut Farm we invite you to slow down, relax and enjoy our luxurious glamping experience. We are situated in a truly secluded and tranquil spot in West Dorset on the edge of a nature reserve, where you are guaranteed a unique and peaceful break with spectacular views.

Russet is a spacious yurt with a hand crafted en-suite bathroom, which is tucked away in its own paddock on the side of a hill with fabulous views. The yurt has a superbly comfortable vi-spring superking bed made up with the finest linen and downs for an unforgetable nights sleep. Rustic log bedside tables, beautiful rugs and individual vintage furniture make for a unique stay. The en-suite bathroom has a proper flushing loo, sink and a piping hot shower – we also provide you with an abundance of fresh cotton towels.

There is something truly magical about sleeping under canvas and being able to watch the stars come out from your bed. Despite being tucked away in beautiful countryside, our farm is less than 5 minutes drive to the vibrant market town of Bridport and pretty harbour of West Bay, part of the impressive Jurrassic coastline, a 'World Heritage Site', making us perfectly situated to explore this spectacular area.
