Rustic retreat in the heart of the Dorset countryside

Caalm Camp in Dorset is the perfect setting for a relaxed family holiday. The friendly, family-run site is situated in a large field on a former dairy farm just a short way from the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury.
Surrounded by rolling landscapes and countryside, the campsite is an oasis for quiet countryside enjoyment and outdoor recreation. Featuring six traditional Mongolian yurts that can sleep up to six people each and a four-sleeper holiday cottage, Caalm Camp is a fantastic base for exploring Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire.

Six gaily painted Mongolian-style yurts are beautifully equipped and furnished with travel cots and wood-burning fireplaces. Private toilets and showers for each yurt are situated in the Old Hay Barn, as well as a new fully equipped communal kitchen. Enjoy a barbecue in your own outdoor seating area outside your yurt and soak up the beautiful views.
Children can occupy themselves on the wooden play equipment and get closer to some local wildlife in a securely fenced off area. A comfy TV room is a good place to relax in on rainy days and a communal fire pit is perfect for toasting marshmallows or enjoying a drink with friends. Fishing is available at the Camp’s own lake or in the seven lakes at the neighbouring fishery, and there are a farm shop and the Kings Arms with excellent pub grub nearby.

Open from 1st Jan to 31st Dec
