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.

New campfire restrictions

Due to the recent hot weather, and continuing dry spell, we are temporarily suspending open campfires throughout the Burnbake site.

We hope you appreciate that the saftey of all our guests and preserving our beautiful forest environment is of upmost importance.

We hope to lift these restrictions as soon as possible.
