Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Nice Swanage Bell Tent
comfy air beds, we had two doubles. toilet blocks cleaned daily, bacon sandwich at the cafe all good. Short walk to swanage 1.5 miles easy walking, for restuarants. We used this as a base for walking. All you need.

A Yurty Weekend Away
Bear in mind, we don’t usually go camping so i don’t have much of a point of reference…easy check in; basic, not too clean yurt but with a plug socket. Bathrooms not particularly clean (but I guess other users didn’t clean up after they finished). A good 30 min walk from the seafront.

Not glamping! Very disappointing- nearest toilets were filthy, showers sectioned off and not cleaned once in the five days we were there.
