Crafty CampingNr Axminster and Lyme Regis, Dorset
Glamping in the woods
The word that rings out loud and clear from the guest book at Crafty Camping is ‘magical’ and so it is. Whether you choose the Woodsman's treehouse, a yurt, a tipi, a shepherd’s hut or a bell tent you will find lots of privacy, child free peace and gay friendly camping luxury in this Dorset woodland wonder world.
Crafty Camping is a seven acre woodland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Dorset just five miles from Axminster. Each unit is carefully positioned to give privacy with lots of personal space.
You can get a train to Axminster from London Waterloo (two hours 45 minutes) and then it is ten minutes in a taxi. There is also a bus stop about 45 minutes walk from Crafty Camping with services from Axminster.
10 miles to Lyme Regis. 17 miles to Bridport. 150 miles to London
About The Owners
Guy Mallinson has the look and laugh of a man who is happy with his lot. He has that grounded contented quality that often comes from people who actually make useful and beautiful things. He trained as cabinet maker and studied furniture design at the Royal College of Art before running his own furniture design business in London for 15 years. Since moving to Dorset, he and his team have created Crafty Camping, and Guy now also runs optional green woodworking courses from his woodland studio. You may have also seen him too on the BBC’s Masterclass series.
Meg : April 2016
This is the best holiday we have been on. We felt very welcome. There is a lot to do - and each hut/tent/yurt has its own bbq and log burning stove and its far away from other tents/yurt/hut - so its really very quiet and very romantic. the hot tree showers and amazing - and the sauna was beautiful. Amazing stay. 10/10
