Stock Gaylard Estate is a traditional country estate in the heart of Dorset. With plenty of woodland, a deer park, a small lake and working farm you are truly in the midst of the countryside.
The estate has been preserved over the last couple of hundred years and is an unspoilt environment that encompasses modern farming with a number of Sites of Special Scientific Interest and wildlife is abundant.
We have an ethos of conservation and preservation.
Our traditional yurts, wacky conversions and furniture have all been made on site with us much of our own wood as possible! All our sites are ‘off grid’ but with all the comforts and luxuries one would expect including hot showers!
As glamping goes we are quite unique! We have four separate sites with a 5 -10 minute walk between them and when you stay with us you book the whole site just for you and your friends & family! No shared facilities here! Simply relax with those who are most important to you and get in touch with nature.
At Stock Gaylard we have four unique sites sleeping 2 – 14!
All our sites:
Have private bathroom, kitchen and dining facilities.
Are dog and children friendly.
Have a campfire and outdoor seating area
Sawpits Wagon | Sleeps 2
Kick back and relax in our woodman’s wagon for two, and watch the sunrise and sunset on your elevated decking whilst enjoying your morning coffee or evening tipple. The wagon has a large double bed, indoor seating area and dining area as well as a gas hob, fridge & sink. Step outside on to your decking or head to your campfire for a traditional camping experience. Just a few meters from the wagon is your hot shower and loo with a view! Both are for your exclusive use.
