Cosy en-suite yurts with acres of space, campfires, a hot tub and wild swimming on site

There are tricky decisions to be made at Walnut Farm Glamping. Do you want to stay in the well-established Russett Yurt with it’s unbeatable sunset views or do you fancy Pippin which sits above the cherry orchard? Or, perhaps, you’d prefer to lay your head in Bracken which is closest to the lake and handy for wild swimming. The agony of choice is yours to endure when making a booking at this glamping site on a delightfully-named and well-located 12-acre farm site in Dorset.

There are five yurts on site, each with plenty of space and private en-suite facilities. The light canvas structures sit on larch decking with wonderful views, which differ depending on which you choose. But inside, each cosy abode features a similar scene. These are light and airy spaces with exposed wooden latticework criss-crossing its way to the ceiling, crowned in the centre with a circular window that pools in natural light and allows indoor stargazing at bedtime. The furnishings are in keeping with the style – Moroccan-style rugs, a cosy wood-burning stove and hand-carved bedside tables. These lovely rustic touches don't mean Walnut Farm lacks modern comforts though. You'll also find a Nespresso coffee machine and electricity throughout. Then there’s the fancy en-suite bathrooms each with an excellent shower, flushing loo and all the toiletries and towels provided. The whole place is a cocoon of glamping comfort.

You haven’t settled in for long, however, before the view from your yurt’s open doorway draws you out. You can enjoy the scenery while you cook on your campfire or admire it as you swim in the lake. And if cold-water swimming is not your thing, you can always book a dip in the warm waters of the on-site hot tub or stick to exploring on foot. Set within 12-acres of farmland – a maze of fruit trees, streams and paddocks – guests have plenty of space to roam, with several footpaths leading directly from the farm.

The landscape beyond provides countless options too. To the east, you walk through meadows and stroll over bridges to Loscombe Nature Reserve, a haven for birdlife, while to the west there’s the Half Moon pub, an equally short wander away. South, meanwhile, Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast unfurls before you – it’s around a 10-minute drive in the car – and then there’s the vibrant town of Bridport that stops you along the way (a particularly nice spot to explore if you want shops to hide in during a rain shower).

Options abound and there may be endless choices but at least Walnut Farm solves one decision for you. Where to stay next time you go glamping in Dorset. Ahh, problem solved. Nespresso anyone?
