The Loose Reins General Stores is a little shepherd’s hut just outside the Horse Barn. Inside you’ll find pretty much everything you need for your stay, including camping basics like matches and firelighters, all-important toiletries and staples for the food cupboard like pasta and rice.

The shop also stocks bread, dairy items, jams, chutneys, soft drinks, chocolate and savoury snacks – not forgetting marshmallows for the fire bowl of course. In the freezer we’ve got local sausages, bacon, Dorset ice cream and that crucial bit of the perfect G&T – ice.

You can get your logs down at the stores too. Everything gets marked up on an honesty sheet and you settle up on departure.
