Coracle-yurt @ Crafty Camping
Yurt | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
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. Coracle is set in an secluded woodland clearing and has a private deck and boardwalk access.
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.

The West Country 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.
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.
