Wild Camping and Bushcraft Holidays

If your into a fully immersive back to nature camping experience then our two woodlands Martins Wood and Ower wood are the perfect location. On private land and surrounded by fields Martins wood is secluded and safe for woodland survival and bushcraft events. We are only a 1 hour walk to Holworth Beach, which is one of the wildest spots on the Dorset Coast. You can catch fish, and forage for edible coastal plants to bring back for supper in your woodland camp.

You have the choice of 2 different woodland environments and easy access to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast:

Martins wood

Martin’s Wood - 10 acres, easy access with a car park and compost toilet facilities. Drinking water is available from outdoor taps in Moignes Court courtyard about 500 metres away. 

This wood is only accessable by a long private drive so we dont have any people passing by. We do have a woodland manager that lives in this wood who is available if you need help or have any questions during your stay. This wood is big enough that you can find a private spot and will feel totally secluded.



Ower Wood 

This is the wildest option.

20 acres with no vehicle access and no facilities. This wood has many areas. Some are open clearings, others are dense undergrowth, plantation larch trees, and wild ancient forest areas. It also has the most amazing bluebells in Spring.

This wood is closer to Owermoigne Village than Martins wood and although it is private you may find the odd dog walker or rambler passing through.
