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 wildlife haven, rabbits hop at your feet, birds sing, butterflies dance and squirrels – well, squirrel! We have Sika deer too.

As twilight falls, campfires crackle and marshmallows wait to be toasted. During peak season, our little eatery serves breakfast and evening meals to take-away or eat alfresco.

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.


We are happy to have been awarded the VisitEngland “We’re Good To Go” industry mark to signal that we have worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and have a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
