Details

Facilities

As a working dairy farm, there are lots of cows to be seen. Our younger visitors greatly enjoyed watching them coming in for twice daily milking. Guests are welcome to come and watch the cows being milked by prior arrangement and to gain an understanding of where their milk comes from. We also have gentle farm ponies that like a stroke and a cuddle and guests are welcome to help to brush them if they choose. We have an abundance of space here and there is a public footpath walk right through the farm.

Suitable For

The site is suited for families, couples, small groups of friends, or single campers seeking peace and quiet. Sadly no dogs allowed, due to the very friendly, but territorial farm Jack Russell.

Nearby

We love the abundance of wildlife that abides at Goldhill Glamping. Hare, deer and owls are regularly seen and heard throughout the seasons. Ideally located in the scenic Dorset countryside, Gold Hill Glamping is surrounded by woodland. There are lots of things to do in the area and there are many idyllic walks directly from the bell tent. There is also a ‘secret’ forest school play area, a short walk from the glamping fields. Truly stunning in bluebell season (end of April / early May) and rather beautiful all year round. Children can play in the mud kitchen, paddle in the tiny stream, or play hide and seek in the dens. There are also a few fairy doors hidden in the trees and rope tree swings for the more adventurous. This little forest used to be a forest school, but is now available exclusively for our glampers to enjoy. The views from the farm are truly splendid over the rolling Dorset hills. We particularly love evenings at Gold Hill Glamping which may be enjoyed around the firepit, barbequing, toasting marshmallows and enjoying the star filled sky. We recommend ending the evening by snuggling up in the fairy lit tent, gazing out at the scenery, as the dusk welcomes the stars.

Food & Drink

We recommend the Fontmell Inn, which is in Fontmell Magna, a few minutes drive away. We also highly recommend the Cricketers Pub in nearby Shroton about a 10 minutes drive away. Shaftesbury has several lovely cafes / pubs to eat in. We can recommend the Grosvenor in Shaftesbury and The Salt Cellar cafe, which is nestled at the top of the famous Goldhill and was a backdrop for the well known Hovis advert.

Open

April–September.

The Owner Says

Hello, welcome to Gold Hill Glamping, which is based at Allan’s Farm, a working dairy farm and our family home. You are likely to see the cows coming in for milking twice a day. There are our lovely shetland ponies Pixie and Trudie to stroke and and past the time with, they love attention! There are usually fresh farm eggs available to buy if you wish. Wildlife is in abundance here. Deer and hares are regular visitors and different species of owl can be heard hooting behind the glamping fields. We have a lovely bell tent, called Willow Bell which has its own eco- loo and BBQ area with Kadai fire-pit and logs / chairs to sit around the fire. We are excited to be welcoming a spacious Lotus Belle tent to our glamping portfolio from Spring 2021. The Lotus Belle offers all the comfort and spaciousness of a yurt but with the simplicity and ease of a bell tent. Hazel, our Lotus Belle tent, will be situated in a separate, and peaceful location on the farm with its own eco – loo and simple glamping kitchen facilities. Thereby, allowing for visitors to glamp completely separately, but also offering the option for friends and family to stay here together. The tents have a very comfortable double bed, which will be fully furnished for your stay, plus two single futon-style beds (please bring your own bedding for the futons). All crockery, BBQ tools, bedding, a fire pit, seating area and a couple of finishing touches are provided for your stay. Both bell tents also have access to a hot shower, and flushing toilet a short walk away in a converted building in the farmyard. We are also planning a small honesty shop, to buy local sausages, eggs and Barber's cheese which is made from our milk.
