Swanage BIJOU glamping


Romantic camping in style…

We offer 5 meter diameter bell tents already erected in their own bell tent area. Here are some of the things our guests like most about our site:-

  • The site is on a level lawn, screened and surrounded by high hedges with a rural ambience, while only a pleasant 7 minute level amble across the park to Swanage beach or town centre. This means no traffic and parking hassles, no £8 per day Council parking fees and no designated driver issues as it is an easy walk to all shops, pubs and restaurants.
  • The spacious and comfortable 5 meter diameter tents sleep up to four adults or two adults and up to three children. Each has its own garden area with windbreaker, picnic table and fire pit with log seating in which to barbecue, relax and unwind. A 4 meter diameter tent can be provided, if booked, as an annex for up to three people.
  • Cars are separate to the camping area so no worries about the kids playing, radios or engine noise (wheelbarrows are provided to help you move your stuff the 30 meters or so.)
  • Free centrally located facilities, including proper flushing loos, sinks, washing up, free hot showers, freezer, fridge and electric points.
  • We back onto huge playing fields which feature a free quality adventure playground and extensive skateboard park all of which is accessed without having to go on the road, so you can send the kids off for an hour or two to work off some energy, worry free!
  • Friendly staff who work on a personal footing with customers and will try to accommodate requests where possible (i.e. when not full), like visitor parking, late departures or early arrivals without penalty fees.
  • Quiet site, no electric hook up so no TV next door and we security patrol at night to enforce our noise policy (hushed voices from 11pm and silence from midnight), and no karaoke bar!
