Old Bidlake FarmHassle-free camping in DorsetOld Bidlake Farm is a smallholding situated in West Dorset, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty known as the Marshwood Vale, three miles from the dramatic Jurassic Coast.We offer the chance of sleeping under canvas, close to nature, free from the stresses of modern life. This isn't 'Glamping' rather Hassle Free Camping, with everything we can think of to make your stay relaxing, comfortable and lots of fun.One of our bell tentsFour traditional canvas tents, sit sheltered by hedges and wildflowers in a one acre section of pasture field, with backdrop views of Pilsdon Pen, Colmers and Lewesdon hills. A one minute stroll through the orchard leads you to the shower block and communal kitchen. There is plenty of space for children to run free, ride bikes or go pony trekking at the riding stables next door, whilst you sit back and unwind.Don't worry that the price to pay for this rural idyll will be a scarcity of culture and activity. We are two miles from the vibrant Market Town of Bridport, a hub for art, music and food lovers and just a ten minute drive to the beach.A view through the orchardAt the heart of our plans for the campsite is the desire to tread lightly on the landscape and our approach is eco-friendly and sustainable. Camping at Old Bidlake provides a great base for cycling and walking holidays; a perfect weekend retreat from the rat race; a traditional family summer holiday or a memorable location to celebrate a special occasion.

If driving or cycling If you are travelling from the North or East you will most probably arrive at the large roundabout at the east side of Bridport. Follow the signs to the town and drive straight through the centre past Waitrose on your left, across the first mini roundabout and on to the second roundabout. Here turn right onto the B3162 signposted to Chard and continue on this road for approximately one mile and then turn left at the Dottery crossroads to Broadoak. Continue along this road for half a mile and Old Bidlake Farm can be found on the right hand side approximately 500yds before the Broadoak sign. When you reach the end of the farm track drive straight through the white gates and park outside the Potting Shed. If you have any problems just phone us and we can guide you here. If travelling by public transport Our nearest train station is ten miles away at Crewkerne. Buses and coaches will take you to Bridport Coach Station, just a five minute taxi ride away. We are happy to collect you if you have arranged this with us in advance.
