Camp Cleavel Tipi Village

Located just 1½ miles by road from the main Burnbake Campsite, Camp Cleavel Tipi Village offers a totally unplugged, get-away-from-it-all glamping experience. Hidden in beautiful Dorset countryside, it is a stunning, secluded location in which to relax with incredible views over the southernmost tip of Poole Harbour and its’ islands.

Accommodation is provided in 15 tipis right at the water’s edge. They are pre-pitched and all ready for you. This is the place to escape from the pressures of everyday life. There’s no wifi and it’s a few miles to the nearest shops, pubs and houses. Miles of walking and cycling routes surround Brownsea Island, Corfe Castle, Studland Beach and the Dorset Water Park are within easy reach and there are a whole host of land and water based activities nearby making the most of Purbeck’s natural features.

Book a massage treatment, challenge a friend to one of our giant lawn games. Play Swallows and Amazons. Then, as night falls, lanterns flicker and all are invited to the Central Village Tipi campfire.
