Set in a magical woodland setting our hand crafted shepherds hut offers peace, tranquility and privacy as well as a level of comfort not normally associated with camping. Bodger is set in an elevated position looking down over the fishing pond and has a private deck and boardwalk, bodger is one of the four glamping units at Crafty Camping that have their own private ensuite facilities.

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.

Further details indoors

Bodger has a double bed with linen, electric blankets, electric lights, log burning stove, reindeer skins on solid oak floor & wifi. Bodger is hand crafted with 10 different wood species used on the interior. Please note that as Bodger is a shepherds hut the timber walls are at the top, bottom and along one side of the double bed and therefore not suitable for very tall guests ( we recommend one of our yurts or the tipi for taller guests)

Further details outdoors

Bodger is secluded with a private deck area overlooking the fishing pond with hammock, bbq, kelly kettle, solid oak picnic table & chairs. There is also a shared kitchen and communal games and local information yurt.

Further details

Bookings are in blocks of 2 (weekdays) or 3 (weekends) nights only with changeovers on Monday, Wednesday and Friday only.

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.
