Glamping at Highermoor Farm, Dorset

As promised I thought I’d write a post all about our recent stay at Highermoor Farm in Weymouth, Dorset. We camped here once before back in 2015 I think it was when Bella was about one and a half. It was our first experience of camping with a child in tow and we had the best time! Josh and I both always said how we would love to go back. So when I won their competition on Instagram for 3 nights in one of their beautiful Bell Tents, I was suuuuper excited to head back with both kiddos.

The weather forecast before we left wasn’t look great so I made sure we packed for all eventualities. Our drive down ended up taking much longer than anticipated so when we arrived we were ravenous. We headed straight to Fanny Annie’s which was on site at Highermoor on the Friday night and had the best grilled cheese sandwiches I have ever eaten! The homemade coleslaw was also delish.

We then settled into our lovely bell tent for the night just before the rain started. There was something very tranquil about laying in bed listening to the rain hit the tent. It was pretty windy too but we were so cosy and the tent felt very secure!

Our Bell Tent was one of three, and slept four. With a proper double bed and two singles. We took our travel cot along for Hugo and there was plenty of room for that too. It was super spacious and very comfortable for us as a family of four. There were little coffee tables and a gorgeous trunk at the end of our bed which was great for storing our stuff in. There was electric inside our tent too which made it super convenient to charge our phones too. Outside there was a picnic bench which was perfect for eating at or drinking gin at once the kiddies were asleep!

Highermoor Farm is hands down the nicest and cleanest campsite we’ve ever visited. The toilets are always spotless and they have a family shower room which makes life so much easier. There’s an on-site farm shop which stocks lots of local goodies including fresh baked good daily and fresh coffee. The staff go above and beyond, nothing is ever too much trouble. Laura and Daniel are both lovely and so welcoming. They also have a wonderful park for the kids and are dog friendly too!

During the summer months they open their vintage marquee which often has live music on over the weekends and serves local ales and ciders! It has a wonderful atmosphere. As well as Fanny Annie’s on our first night, we then had amazing pizzas from Dorset Wood-fired Pizzas on our second night and then on our last night Lizzie Baking Bird was there with an array of baked goods which we of course had to sample too!

We visited the sea life centre in Weymouth on our first day and then explored the seafront on our second day when the sun was shining. The kids loved the rides and arcades and we even enjoyed a quiet lunch with Bella as Hugo fell asleep in his buggy!

Overall we had the best time and I would 100% recommend Glamping at Highermoor Farm to anyone. You can also camp or take a caravan/motor home. Or if you prefer a bit more of a home from home they have these amazing pods too! We’ll definitely be heading back next Summer I’m sure as we all loved our stay so much.

*I haven’t been asked to share this post as our stay was a competition win but I wanted to share as it really is such a lovely place to visit!*
