Sandyholme Glamping

Sandyholme Holiday Park is nestled on the edge of the Purbeck area of Dorset and is located close to some of the county’s best attractions and places to visit. Explore the famous Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, wander the golden sands of Weymouth Beach and visit some incredible museums in the county town of Dorchester. The park is also a great place to try glamping, with our safari tents and bell tent waiting for you. These tents are the perfect way to experience camping in the outdoors, without the hassle of putting up your tents, and with the added luxuries of electricity and proper beds.

On the Park you’ll find some great facilities, including a wildlife lake with ducks and wild birds, a children’s play area, playing field, free toilet and shower facilities and much more. In this quiet, countryside location, you’ll be surrounded by farmland and wildlife, while still being only 5 miles from the coast!

Bell Tent (with electric)

This bell tent at Sandyholme Holiday Park is a large circular tent, 5 metres in diameter. It has a unique shape with a high roof and 2 doors for great ventilation. The tent is spacious and sleeps up to 4 people with a double bed and 2 single camp beds. There are plug sockets, lighting and a heater as well as a picnic bench outside on the grass. As this is a tent, warm clothing and blankets may be required on cold nights. Unfortunately this bell tent is not dog-friendly, however many that are in our non-electric meadow do welcome up to one dog.

Back-To-Basics Bell Tents

If you really want to go off-grid and try traditional camping, these bell tents could be for you. Our new spacious meadow is the perfect base from which to relax and switch off from the world. Bordered by Tadnoll Brook and with a small lake in one corner, you’ll see lots of wildlife both in the meadow and beyond.

Park at the edge of the field, and use one of our wheelbarrows to carry your belongings to your tent. You’ll need to bring your own camp beds and bedding, and use the nearby facility blocks. We recommend bringing a power bank for phone charging and a good torch as there is no electric in the field. The tents are unfurnished, so bring your sleeping bags or camp beds, bedding, chairs and cooking equipment. Some of our tents do welcome up to one dog.

We cannot guarantee the wifi signal from your tent, though you are welcome to head towards the centre of the park if you do wish to use the complimentary wifi. We think being disconnected is part of the charm of good old-fashioned camping!
