Welcome to Burnbake

Burnbake is a magical, woodland oasis surrounded by dramatic coastlines, blue flag beaches, coves, ridges and valleys at the gateway to the World Heritage Jurassic coastline.

Children can be children, enjoying a sense of freedom and good old fashioned play, beavering by the stream, hiding in the woods and foraging in the forest. A rural wildife haven, rabbits hop at your feet, birds sing, butterflies dance and squirrels – well, squirrel! We have Silka deer too.

As twilight falls, campfires crackle and marshmallows wait to be toasted. During peak season, our quirky (or should we say eccentric) little eatery tempts with artisan treats for a tasty feast under twinkling fairy lights.

So, whether you prefer the traditional charm of camping or a touch of luxury with a stay in one of our chic lodges, kickback, relax and enjoy a back-to-nature adventure in Burnbake’s great outdoors.

Schools out for Summer!

This is our busiest time of the year on our campsite with a limited number of pitches becoming available daily. We are a first come, first served site and do our best to accommodate everyone within our licensed numbers.

However, please be aware that we may have to turn you away, particularly in this period of beautiful weather. Whilst you may see physical space on the field, we have to abide by our camping licensed numbers, and by the capacity of our facilities to cope.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Camp fire suspension lifted!

The crackling glow of a good old camp fire really enhances the rustic atmosphere here at Burnbake.
However, in spite of recent showers, the ground is still fairly dry so please exercise extra caution:

– All camp fires must be off the ground in a fire pit or suitable container – no ground fires. Burnbake have fire pits for hire (subject to availability).
– Please keep fires low, sparks to a minimum with plenty of water on hand
– Do not leave your camp fire unattended
– Staff will put out fires that are deemed to be unsafe in anyway or not properly managed.
– Remember to put out your fire before you retire to bed!

And, if you have forgotten your marshmallows, simply pop in to our on site shop!
