Camping on the Old Tennis Lawn

The flat grassy terrace of our old tennis lawn is a perfect spot for camping. Pitch your tent or one of our Bell tents with a beautiful view of our house and meadows. As for facilities, there is a palatial compost toilet in the woods, another by the pub, and more toilets as well as shower facilities outside next to the camping area and inside the main house. There is an outdoor kitchen and fire-pit next to the camping terrace for you to cook on if you wish, a self-catering kitchen indoors to use for a small donation if you prefer, or we can cater for you – see below. Since we are a vegetarian establishment, we ask that meat is not cooked or stored inside the house, but is only cooked at the outdoor kitchen and fire pit outside.


Eating outside

Enjoy Meals Indoors or Outdoors

Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner can all be reserved at an extra cost. Guests are welcome to bring their own drinks; our tiny licensed pub also stocks Branscombe Vale Brewery ale and you can buy Fairtrade wine and other essentials at our small shop. See here for meal prices and more on our food…


As well as offering you our beautiful grounds to explore enjoy, we can provide details and maps of local walks. The local beaches at Charmouth and Lyme Regis offer a rich variety of environments to explore, and there are a host of other local attractions nearby. In all, the Monkton Wyld Court experience is an ever-changing blend of peace and quietude with friendly company and busy activity.
