Small, basic (no hot water or showers), isolated site on farm. 1 mile into Swanage.convenient for the South West coast path (2 fields away). ideal for walkers/cyclists/ climbers - Durlston country park and climbing cliffs a quarter mile away. The site is ideal for groups (up to 40 if entire field is booked) as there is a firepit for open fires and barbecue.

The site can be used in conjuction with a large holiday property a field away(california barn) which sleeps up to 12 and a studio/workshop functions room (sleeps 3-4)which is ideal for talks/meetings/exhibitions/get togethers etc. and a 100 year old shepherds hut which sleeps 2.
the whole site (barn, studio, shepherds hut and camp can probably accommodate 50-60 people as a group event for those staying on site. or up to 80-90 with day/evening visitors sleeping elsewhere. For large events/gatherings, car parking and access details would need to be by agreement with the owner

Ideal for workshop groups and is/has been used by yoga/meditative groups, arts/creative groups, storytelling/writers and music/performance groups, alternative therapy/life skills groups.
the area is renowned for its geology, archaeology/history, wildlife and marine life.
