Bell Tent Holidays in Dorset
New for 2017, our ‘Lotus Stargazer’ Belle Tents are the first of their kind with a clear roof allowing you to make the most of the amazing night skies we get in Dorset. Sleeping up to 4 people, the tents are spacious and have a double bed and two single camp beds. The bell tents will already be set up for you and they have a strong waterproof lining to keep you dry. There is plenty of headroom inside the tent, plug sockets for charging phones and an outdoor picnic bench for alfresco dining. The tents are 5 metres in diameter and very spacious inside. Bedding is provided and made up on arrival and you have full use of the Shower and toilet block a short walk away – please bring your own towels, tea towels and washing up cloths.
The Stargazer Bell Tent and Safari Tent at Sandyholme have a prime location in the centre of the Park close to the Shower and Toilet Block and the Park Reception. The Wildlife Lake, Children’s Play Area and small Playing Field are also very nearby. These Bell Tents are great for holidays with family, friends or romantic breaks with someone special, and particularly good for anyone interested in stargazing. As shown in the pictures below, there is a clear PVC roof on the tent that will allow for stargazing on clear nights. Dorset is one of the best areas in the UK to view the night sky and the milky way. Visit our stargazing tips page for more information. The Park is surrounded by flat countryside, rivers and trails and is just a few miles from some great attractions and landmarks, such as Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Weymouth, Dorchester, MonkeyWorld and The Tank Museum.
There is a large picnic bench outside to enjoy the great outdoors and parking is available next to the Glamping area. Unfortunately we cannot allow dogs in the Bell Tents, Safari Tents or Camping Pods. BBQ’s are permitted outside the tent and there is a slab to place disposable BBQs on. Please be aware that this is still a tent and that warm clothing, blankets etc may be required on cold nights. The Tent has a clear PVC roof but also a canvas roof that can be hooked across the ceiling to ensure you aren’t woken up by the sun in the morning.
