Stay in comfort…

Loose Reins is where the world slows down. It’s where the daily grind is left at the gate and a place of experience, relaxation and discovery opens up. It’s where you reconnect, come together and unwind in one of our luxurious Glamping Lodges, our new Rustic Retreat Lodge or, for a cosier experience, stay in one of our Cabins with their new wood-fired eco-tubs. Surrounded by beautiful Dorset countryside, it’s the place where life’s stresses end and life’s adventures begin.

Unwind at Loose Reins…

Put those feet up and toast marshmallows on the fire. Take things slowly. Rock back on the cabin porch. Cook up a treat or let us do the work for you. Listen to the owls. Snuggle inside with the wood burner or feel the summer dew on your feet. Make friends with the animals, and make memories forever.

Discover Dorset…

See the world from the Wessex Ridgeway. Walk through the woods and see the deer. Take a picnic. Dine out in nature. Listen for birdsong or the rustle of woodland wildlife. Share tales from the trail. Smell the wood smoke. Plan tomorrow’s adventure. Learn some rural crafts. Hire a bike and explore the North Dorset Trailway. Take a trip to the Jurassic Coast and uncover a fossil. Make the days as long as you want them to be.
