Bracken is very accessible and you can park your car right beside the yurt.
Inside you'll find a Vispring super king bed, luxurious bedding, linen and towels. With bedside lights, fairy lights around the perimeter and a dual control electric blanket we have added all the little extra details to make it a truly luxurious and magical experience. Sleeping in the round with cascading roof poles and stargazing through the rooflight is magical!
There's a log burner to quickly heat the whole yurt, together with a radiator for the cooler months, a dining table, sofa, chest of drawers and chairs.
Attached to the yurt is a beautifully crafted en-suite bathroom which is the epitome of rustic luxury. Clad in cedar from a neighboring wood with a piping hot shower, flushing toilet, sink with backlit mirror, heated towel rail and complementary organic toiletries – we have thought of everything.
Outside Bracken is a huge larch clad deck with an outside dining table –perfect for al fresco breakfast, lunch or dinner, soaking in the beautiful views over our stunning natural swimming lake, ancient apple orchard and across the valley and out over the Dorset hills.
Next to the deck is your own Kadai firebowl area for campfires, bbq’s and cooking over fire.
Bracken has its own attached kitchen accessed from the deck. It is fully kitted out with a fridge freezer, gas range hob, sink with hot and cold mains drinking water and all crockery, cutlery, cups, glasses and cooking utensils you will need - some guests cook extravagant meals, others just chill their bubbles... either which way you should have everything you need!
Before you arrive we will fill your log basket with dried logs, kindling and firelighters. Further supplies of logs and kindling can be purchased on site if required. (Payment for these and other shop items can be made by cash or card at the end of your stay.
We have a wood fired hot tub that you are welcome to use during your stay. We fill it with fresh water each time and clean it thoroughly after each use meaning we don’t have to use any nasty chemicals. It costs £35 per session if you heat it yourself and £55 if you would like us to heat it for you!
We host wood fired pizza evenings in our wood fired pizza oven using local ingredients. The cost is £15 for adults and £7.50 for children.
Beyond the Farm..
To the east, you walk through meadows and over bridges to Loscombe Nature Reserve, a haven for birdlife, while to the west there’s the Half Moon pub, an equally short wander away. South, meanwhile, Dorset’s epic Jurassic Coast unfurls before you; it’s a 10-minute drive in the car – and then there’s the vibrant town of Bridport that stops you along the way.
We have removed all non-essential items in our yurts to reduce the risk of Covid 19. We have replaced our welcome book with a digital version which is available on our website on the “Staying at Walnut Farm Glamping” page of our website.
