Due to the effects of the Coronavirus unfortunately we have had to cancel all our bookings until 4th July. This is the date the government has said they will make an announcement on reopening holiday destinations. We are taking bookings for late July and August but please be aware that if the decision is made not to reopen glamping sites across England then your booking will have to be cancelled as all guidlines have to be followed. Before you book please take note that our facilities block is communal which may contribute to a further delay in our opening. Please stay safe at this difficult time.

Bloomfield Camping, Common Drove, Child Okeford, Blandford, Dorset.
Bloomfield has so much to offer. Here’s an insight into a glampers life on site.
Fun for all at Bloomfield
Children get bored…..we know this as we have three of our own!
They’ve had to leave their Xbox at home and they feel it’s the end of the world…..we’ve been there!
Give them an hour at Bloomfield and their lives will be transformed. There is the chance to play football or swing ball, play in dens, have a game of hide and seek, swing from a tree, play on the rope swings, toast marshmallows on an open fire, make new friends and indulge in some quality family time.
A camping experience is never complete until the whole family has sat around an open fire toasting marshmallows!
At Bloomfield we are lucky to have a number of ponds but the main attraction has to be the two larger ponds…..or small lakes! These are full of wildlife both on top and underneath the water. Look out for our resident ducks and geese that spend their days around the water area.
Have a try at pond dipping or if you have a fishing rod bring it along and give it a go, you may be lucky and catch your own tea to cook on the campfire.
If it’s raining simply bring your wellies! All the above activities can still be done in the rain….you just have to come prepared for it!
If getting wet doesn’t appeal to you then you can borrow books, games, colouring etc….from us, all you have to do is light your wood burner put your onesie on and have a cosy day enjoying your yurt.
A Lazy Day at Bloomfield
Set in the peace and quiet of the Dorset countryside you can’t help but feel relaxed at Bloomfield. Feel free to enjoy lazy days and take stress free walks around our rustic site and the surrounding country paths watching and listening to our impressive wildlife. You may even catch a glimpse of Dave the Peacock! Perhaps late afternoon you could take a stroll in to the village and enjoy a delicious pub meal and return for an evening around the campfire.
We have a few new introductions at Bloomfield for the 2020 season.
Firstly we have introduced another yurt on site. Our new yurt is called Maple and is positioned between Beech and Willow along the back of the site. Maple has a spacious pitch, woodburner and kitchen unit. It has all the same facilities and equipment as the other yurts.
Secondly we are working very hard over the winter to make the ponds an area for people to enjoy fishing. The ponds have always had fish in them but they were becoming overgrown making it difficult to comfortably fish. The ponds are already looking much larger and will be a fabulous place to spend time next season either fishing, pond dipping or just relaxing in the hammocks.
Thirdly we have reinstalled our bird hide. During strong winds the bird hide had been damaged but it is now up and running so bring your binoculars and see if you can catch a glimpse of a kingfisher.
Also we have transformed a shed into a fantastic nature hut. From here you can also bird watch over the ponds or children can carry out some activities and enjoy catching bugs or looking at the wildlife on site.
