Information East Shilvinghampton

East Shilvinghampton is less than 10 minutes from dramatic Chesil Beach and only 15 minutes from the golden sand of Weymouth Beach, and offers panoramic views across the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. East Shilvinghampton’s luxury camping tents are close to the farmyard, with cows, goats, pigs, hens and ducks just a toddle away.

Activities on the farm:

One of the highlights of a glamping Dorset family holiday at East Shilvinghampton farm is all the animals there are for you and your children to meet. Why not take the farm tour, and get to know to beef suckler cows and calves and pedigree limousin cows?  Some real personalities include Labradors Ora and Lizzie, pet goat Trit-Trot and her kids, Leonard the farm cat (who loves visiting tents), the ducks Pit, Pat and Paddle, Henry’s pigs, Chase the horse, and Pippin the pony belonging to Martin and Joby’s daughters Georgina and Annabel. Also making their homes nearby are deer, hares and owls, so keep a close eye out for them. There’s always something going on at East Shilvinghampton!

For 2019, East Shilvinghampton has some new inhabitants at the farm which are alpacas! Explore the area while walking an alpaca which son Henry will be offering during the weekends and school holidays for just a small fee. Other than being up close to alpacas another new addition is the exciting trail inspired by the well-known children’s book We’re Going On a Bear Hunt. Can you manage to find the bear?

What’s more, you can enjoy a soak in a jacuzzi! The Jacuzzi can be booked for private hire, and is sure to make your already relaxing holiday even more restorative. It features hydrotherapy jets, beloved by athletes, which massage aching muscles and soothe body and mind.  The Jacuzzi benefits from a private location, so you can forget the outside world and let yourself be carried off to a place of true relaxation.

Previous guests have loved the setting of the tents as the children can play and roam freely and safely within sight and earshot of parents. A great place to explore is the Drovers trail, which has a small copse at the end of it for den building. We have started to clear another wooded area for children to play at. The farm larder will sustain the whole family, being well stocked with lots of local produce and the farm’s own beef and pork. There’s also a wide range of tantalising home-cooked goodies available to order directly from the farmer on this perfect glamping Dorset farm holiday.

A very handy outdoor covered eating area can be found next to the pizza oven. Gatherings of family or friends will love the cosy communal area, which makes East Shilvinghampton an ideal destination for group holidays.

Explore the area:

During your stay, the abundance of nearby beaches will leave you spoilt for choice. These include West Bay, famous home of the Broadchurch TV series, and Chesil Beach, part of the impressive Jurassic Coast world heritage site. The stunning RSBP Arne landscape is just 25 miles away and has plenty of family activities. Finally, East Shilvinghampton also has a B&B for grandparents who do not want to ‘glamp’ but would still like to join their family during their glamping holiday on the farm!
