Luxury camping on the farm with a prime location on the doorstep of historic Dorchester

Considering how close it is to the country town of Dorchester, Dewflock Farm has a wonderfully rural feel. Just two miles from the charming old town centre, this 28-day campsite offers a true townie’s alternative – a working farm and views across the rolling Dorset downs.

The camping itself is of the luxurious variety, with pre-pitched bell tents for rent. If you want to bring your own equipment, then you can plucked for one of the unfurnished tents that has only inflatable mattresses inside, while the more plush, furnished option includes bed linen and towels, rugs, furniture and an entrance awning to provide some additional covered space.

Dewflock Farm is a particular hit with families. The 7-acre meadow in which the tents are pitched provides plenty of space for children to fly kites and kick a ball around, while, in the mornings, kids are also invited to follow farmer Tom as he checks and feeds the animals – lambs, pigs, cows and chickens. On rainy days an old farm barn has been converted into all-weather family space too. It has a television and jukebox, a lounge area and Wi-Fi, plus there’s also a handy ‘campers kitchen’ with a fridge, freezer, toaster, and kettle.

The real benefit of the place, though, for families and couples alike, is its position between town and seaside. For those who don’t mind a good stroll, Dorchester is within walking distance and has enough to occupy you for a day or more, while, just to the east of the campsite, the vast Maiden Castle is one of Europe’s best-preserved Iron Age hill forts and well worth a visit. South, meanwhile, a short drive leads you to the famous Jurassic Coast and it’s popular combination of beaches, cliffs and coves.

So whether it’s a rainy day in the museums or a sunny one down on the beach, Dewflock Farm has got you covered.

The Owner Says

Dewflock Farm is ideally placed to offer families a chance to explore the Dorset countryside and the Jurassic Coast whilst having a base that offers a safe and interesting environment.
With cattle and sheep in neighbouring fields and the farm orphan lambs on the loose, children will really love the place.  We offer 17 bell tents generously spaced out and four  shepherd's huts for rent as well as wild camping over the May Bank Holiday weekend.
Home to Mini Landies, we invite our smaller visitor to test their driving skills and have a go as an included treat.

Social Distancing Measures

As a small campsite, social distancing around accommodation is easy.

We have a ten acre field with just 12 tent pitches and 3 huts so a lot of space will be allocated around each pitch.

We have introduced minimum stays arriving only on Monday and Friday so fewer guests coming and going and our time on the site can be used cleaning and making sure we are all safe.

Notices and sanitiser dispensers are now installed at any point where guest need to spend time such as toilets and showers and also where children might congregate.

No Indoor space and indoor activities have been moved to outdoor open sided barns with natural ventilation.
