The Accommodation

Please come and stay in one of our luxury Log Cabins or Farmhouse. Soak in a private hot tub whilst relaxing and admiring the Purbeck Hills. Our log cabins, set in the Isle of Purbeck at the gateway to the Jurassic Coast, Dorset, are perfect for a self-catering holiday come rain or shine, summer or winter.

Our romantic log cabins make a welcome change from the usual holiday cottage, bed & breakfast or camping trip. Heated throughout the year with full self-catering facilities, our luxury log cabins offer a camping style holiday, with four-star hotel accommodation.

If you’re bringing your caravan or motorhome to Dorset, drop in at Herston. We’re located within easy reach of Swanage, the Jurassic Coast and the vibrant towns of Poole & Bournemouth. Pitches are level, well-equipped and excellent value while the award-winning facilities here are wide-ranging and exceptionally high quality. With loads to do and see in the local area you’re sure to have a fun packed stay.

If you wish to experience glamping then why not stay in one of our bell tents already set up with air beds, small cupboard lighting and electric. Set in a private field surrounded by stunning views within close walking distance of Herston Halt railway stop where you can hop on and ride to Swanage or Corfe Castle.

Just In case there are any essentials that you may have forgotten or for a treat for the Children we have a fully stocked shop on site. You can also unwind at the end of the day in our bar and restaurant or sample our famous Sunday carvery whilst the kids enjoy themselves in our play area.

Wherever you’re travelling, make Herston your base for a while where our helpful friendly staff will ensure that you feel welcome and wanted.
