The Magic of Glamping: What Sets Us Apart

Welcome to Loose Reins, where the allure of the wild West meets the cosy comforts of home, all under the enchanting Dorset sky. Nestled amidst the picturesque landscape, our glamping site is a unique haven that promises an experience like no other.

Surrounded by Nature’s Elegance

As you step into Loose Reins, you’ll be greeted by an enchanting view of our magnificent dressage stud, where aspiring horses prepare for their journey to international stardom. Amongst these graceful creatures, you’ll find our charming Grey-Faced Dartmoor sheep and playful pygmy goats, adding a touch of country magic to your stay.

The rolling hills of the Blackmoor Vale and the imposing Hambledon Hill iron-aged fort create a backdrop that is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

Luxury Meets Adventure

Each of our accommodations offers the perfect blend of rustic charm and modern comfort. You’ll find the indulgence of an eco-tub waiting for you, a private oasis where you can soak in serenity while the stars light up the night.

Whether you choose one of our cosy cabins or our spacious lodges, you’ll enjoy a private fire pit to gather around, share stories, and roast marshmallows.

Homely Hideaways

Inside, you’ll discover a luxurious secret: every accommodation boasts its own hot shower and toilet facilities, a touch that redefines the glamping experience. We take pride in providing all the amenities to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

Each unit is designed to be a home away from home, offering the perfect place to unwind, reconnect, and rejuvenate.

Embrace Your Inner Cowboy

For those with a wild spirit, we offer an opportunity to practice your cowboy skills.

Our communal lawn features a wooden roping bull, inviting you to try your hand at lassoing like a true Western rancher. It’s all about the adventure, the fun, and the connection to the land and heritage that sets Loose Reins apart.

Unexpected Delights

At Loose Reins, we believe in making your stay extraordinary. It’s about those unforgettable moments that our guests have experienced, like the time we surprised a couple with Capybara figurines hidden around their cabin. Their response? “I squealed and laughed a lot when we made our first coffee. We had a wonderful stay and it wouldn’t be a wedding anniversary without Capybara. Thanks so much, we had a fabulous time again and looking forward to the next stay already.”

Another guest once requested a framed photo of “Pedro Pascal” by the bedside for their stay. Instead, we printed off a lot of mini Pedro Pascals from a famous image and hid them around the lodge. They said their favourite was one at the bottom of the glass, so they spotted him when they finished their drink.

These light-hearted, personalised touches are just a glimpse of the many ways we go the extra mile to ensure your visit is not just enjoyable but also unforgettable. Exceptional experiences are what we’re all about.

A Haven of Serenity

What sets us apart is the serenity, the connection to nature, and the luxury wrapped in a rustic setting. We’re here for our guests when they want a personal experience or when they seek minimal contact with others. It’s about providing a haven that caters to your preferences.

The magic of glamping at Loose Reins is about embracing the beauty of the natural world and the luxury of a relaxing retreat. We’re a place where you can escape the everyday and create cherished memories with loved ones, whether that’s under a starlit sky or by the warm glow of a fire pit.

Come and experience the magic for yourself at Loose Reins, where adventure meets luxury, and where the beauty of Dorset is your backdrop. We look forward to sharing this unforgettable journey with you.
