Excellent 5/5 Score from 8 reviews

'poppet' the yurt

Yurt | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Nearest beach 15 km
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car advised
  • No pets allowed

Set in a magical woodland setting our hand crafted yurt offers peace, tranquility and privacy as well as a level of comfort not normally associated with camping. The child free atmosphere and the wildlife offer a unique atmosphere in which to unwind and relax. Our piping hot tree showers need to be experienced - particularly in the rain!

Craft courses are available for those that want to escape with a bit of green wood creativity but are by no means an essential part of the Crafty Camping experience. Poppet is set in an elevated position looking down over the fishing pond and has a private deck and boardwalk access.

The Dorset region

We are on the Dorset, Devon and Somerset border near Axminster and the Jurasic coast & Lyme Regis. We are in the area of outstanding beauty and are in a very rural countryside environment. We are about 10 miles from Bridport too.

Lyme Regis

River Cottage Canteen and River Cottage HQ are both nearby as well as the Mark Hix Restaurant and the Wild Garlic Restaurant in Beaminster. There is fossil hunting nearby on the Jurassic Coast and Forde Abbey and Gardens are just down the lane from the Crafty Camping. Electric bike tours can be arranged to explore the hills and vales in the area and craft courses can be arranged on site with owner Guy Mallinson. Guy and the site have been featured in a number of tv series including the BBC Mastercrafts series on wood craft.

Lots of places say they are 'unique', so we all get cynical - Crafty Camping genuinely and unreservedly merits that description. An astonishing layout, fantastic vision and construction ski… More

"Rustic Glamping in a fantastic location"

What a great find. Tucked out of the way, peaceful, tranquil and relaxing woodland with a fishing lake. Each of the yurts are dotted around the site so it felt private. They are kitted out perfectly… More

"A perfect escape from the real world"

Poppet the yurt was so much more than we expected. It is nestled away in a lovely part of the woods overlooking the lake. The yurt itself is beautiful and extremely comfortable, with a huge double bed… More

"Despite the cold we had a brilliant weekend!"

We recently stayed here on the coldest easter on record. Once we got the hang of the wood burner and bbq it was very cosy inside and out. The kelly kettle was a whole different story but you can use t… More

We had a brilliant weekend in Poppet! (made all the better by the fact that we got engaged in the yurt!) We loved how peaceful the environment was. It was glamping at a very high standard with luxurio… More
