Back of Beyond Touring Park
New to glamping or looking for a new adventure? Be sure to check out Back of Beyond Touring Park in Dorset! This adults only campsite has several different glamping options available including lodges, bell tents, pods and a luxury yurt. Set within 30 acres of land with lakes, woodland and wildlife.
Josie recently spent the night in their luxury glamping yurt and shares her experiences:
Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by owners Martin and Victoria, you can instantly see that they're extremely passionate and proud of their camp site and they couldn't be more helpful. The grounds were extremely quiet and peaceful and the lakes and woodland are perfect places to relax.
The yurt itself was even better than expected and had a really homely feel thanks to personal touches such as fluffy cushions, flowers, lamps and fairy lights. It was spacious, light and had most of the essentials that you could need including kitchen essentials, washing up bowl, heater, electric cooler and even tea bags! Outside on the decking you have a dining table and chairs, sun loungers and gas cooking stove.
Normally the dreaded thing about camping is the shower and toilet block, but at Back Of Beyond these amentities are in keeping with the homely feel thanks to nice touches such as cute signs, hand cream, mirrors and hair dryers. The block is also heated and was kept extremely clean throughout our stay.
For a small fee we hired a fire pit and spent the evening sat outside our tent with the roaring fire to keep us warm. As well as renting out the fire pits and chimeneas they also sell marshmallows and skewers so you can toast your evening snacks!
With plenty of space around each pitch, and a special glamping section you really did feel like you were the only people there, and it made for a really relaxing break.
In the local area there are plenty of ways to spend your time including walking, cycling, horse riding and fishing, and a trip to the New Forest is an essential for outdoor enthusiasts. For us one night wasn't enough to explore everything in the local area that we wanted to see but this just gives us the excuse to book another stay with Back Of Beyond, and now we know how luxurious it is we'll definitely be staying for at least a few days!
We booked our stay using Campsites.co.uk which is an amazing site that helps you easily find camping and glamping sites across the UK. For those looking for a bit of luxury be sure to check out their glamping holidays. Offering all the fun of the outdoors holiday but without the need to 'pitch'. They have glamping pods, yurts, treehouses, safari tents, tipis and gypsy caravans! Some even come with a hot tub! These funky accomodations add even more fun to traditional camping and can be enjoyed whether you're going as a family, a couple, or with friends.
