Campsite of the week: Rosewall

Nestled on the World Heritage Jurassic coast, Rosewall is a family run camping park in the Hamlet of Osmington Mills near Weymouth. Surrounded by dramatic coastal views, the 13 acre site boasts coastal paths for the walkers, a fishing lake for the anglers and a riding school for the budding Frankie Dettoris.

Campsite of the week: Cosy Under Canvas

Tipi or not tipi? We say tipi. And you’d be hard pushed to find a nicer specimen than those nestled away in the woodlands of the Welsh borders. Lucky visitors to Cosy Under Canvas (just down the road from Hay on Wye) will be greeted with a huge tipi, a hamper full of local produce, a place to build a fire and a friendly cockerel called Boris. Early morning wake up call it is then.

I'll take the left beanbag, you take the right

Campsite of the week: Henry’s

Since we’re all excited about the launch of our nautical inspired ropes & boats collection, for this week’s CSOTW we’ve headed to the Cornish coastline. Henry’s is a small, family run campsite situated at the top of CaerthillianValley. It boasts amazing sea views, ducks, pigs, guinea pigs and there’s even some rather nifty wooden seagull statues lurking around. Nice.

Campsite of the week: Blackberry Wood

Many thanks to Mark and Kay for tipping us off about Blackberry Wood, a woodland wonderland at the foot of the South Downs. There’s room for about 20 tents, there’s retro caravans to hire and there’s a vintage routemaster bus that’s been double decked out with a bed, a retro lamp, a kitchen and eating area. We can’t wait to visit.

Beware the thorns, blackberry pickers

Each tent pitch gets its very own grassy glade

Campsite of the week: Sandy Balls

And so for tentisode 1. The first campsite of the week is Sandy Balls in The New Forest, Hampshire. Team Anorak have just returned from a long weekend in the forests of fine Fordingbridge and we absolutely love it! It’s got wooden huts, it’s got teepees, it’s got tents it’s got… Sandy Boules. Book early for extra cheap January red letter prices and summer high season.

No, really. Sandy Balls.
