For 2018 Withybed will have four yurts on the site not three as shown in the picture.
Withybed Yurts are positioned beside a farm track near to the Deer Park on Stroud farm which is a mixed farm with cattle, sheep and cereals.
This yurt camp is facing west to maximise the stunning sunsets. Roe deer often come and graze between the wood and field edges. Tawny and Barn owls will be heard most nights. In May and June listen out for the Nightingale too.
A small seasonal stream runs below the site between two woods on either side of this private campsite.
Withybed camp has three sleeping yurts, two of which have one double and two single beds with a futon that will be made up if required in the booking, then one yurt with 4 single futons. A fourth yurt is the living area with a dresser including a two ring gas hob, low table and seating.
Other facilities include a covered kitchen area with a gas oven, solar powered fridge and single point to charge phones. A compost loo and bath under the stars (very popular!) with hot water from a wood fired hot water tank, gas shower.
During the winter of 2017/18 there have been alterations to the general layout of the site and the decking has been enlarged to enable us to put up one more sleeping yurt to accommodate groups of up to 14 people.
The site is child friendly and we welcome up to two dogs on this site. Hen do's and group bookings are also welcome at Withybed.
There are excellent train links nearby at Sherborne, from which Stock Gaylard is a 10 minute taxi ride, there is a taxi office at the station.
We recommend Dike & Son, our local family run supermarket in Stalbridge for groceries. They sell a range of local produce plus all the well known brands you use every day.
In addition we can provide Venison from the estate POA.

Both families have had the most fantastic, muddy week! Lots of sdventures, walks, and fires enjoyed by all from age 1 to 30 something...!
We'd all love to come back again soon. Many thanks for your kind and thoughtful hospitality.

A group of 9 of us were down in Dorset for a friend's wedding. We had such a lovely time at Withy Bed Yurts and the location was great - we were only 15minutes drive from the wedding venue and close to a few small supermarkets for BBQ supplies! We also drove down to the coast one day and that was brilliant. The yurts are really cosy, nicely decorated, comfy beds, great little fire pit area and easy to use BBQ. No one used the bath but we all agreed the shower was great. Outdoor toilet was fine for a few days! Wendy was really helpful and very sweet, the shower broke at one point and she has someone down within literally 5 minutes and it was fixed straight away. We would absolutely come back! Thank you!

What a wondeful site! Having two yurts for sleeping in and one for socialising made it very restful for everyone - those who wanted to sleep half the day in the exceedingly comfortable beds and those who wanted to play board games and charades around the fire into the night (there was a lot of both!) were all accommodated. There are gorgeous views all around as the Sun is setting, and walks to local pubs which are very worth doing. Everyone had a peaceful, sociable time (and the most wonderful baths in the open air) and would really love to come back. Thank you!

We had the most wonderful time. Granted, the weather was definitely on our side but the situation and accommodation were equally satisfying. Great attention to detail, total seclusion and a very warm welcome.

All we can say is WOW! The place is amazing and then some!!! We cannot fault one thing at all and would highly recommend anyone to go there! The whole camp was built with love and nothing was too much trouble for the owners Josie and Andrew. Josie even baked us the most delicious cake for us to have with tea on our arrival! Who does that???? Josie does! I cannot list the great points about this place as there are too many! Everything you could possibly need is thought of and is there! My kids were so excited about making fires that they used all the wood. Andrew kindly brought us some straight up for a very small charge and when they used it all again he brought them some more! It's very private but you know they are there to look after you. The yurts are beautiful and very comfortable. We will definitely be back!!!!! The photos look great but it's so more lovely when you stay there. Thank you so much xxx

It was a magical weekend. Andy couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The yurts had been improved since our last stay and the extra touches were thoughtful and much appreciated it. The set-up is amazing – the warm, cosy beds, the outdoor shower and the bath beneath the stars.

The stay was absolutely perfect! It had everything we needed and it was in the best location! It had a lovely shower which was nice and hot, the beds were super comfortable and we had all we needed to make lovely dinners for everyone. The fire pit was lovely and we loved sitting out there untill the late hours of the evening. The weather turned out perfect which made it even better. I would definitely go back there again!
