A rustic, off-grid yurt in an arty craft and camping retreat in rural Lincolnshire

Campsites are great, obviously, but when you can also share someone's life and vision, doesn't that just make your back-to-nature trip that much more meaningful? Welcome then to the Lincolnshire countryside, where artists Alex and Azra have created a craft and camping retreat designed to connect you with the natural world.

From your off-grid yurt on the family farm — there's only one, so peace and solitude are also guaranteed — you can try your hand at silk-screen printing with Azra or lathe-turning, carving, or wood-working with Alex, before a night by the campfire under dazzling starry skies. The sunsets are magical in Lincolnshire's Big Sky Country; at dusk, the barn owls swoop down into the long grass on the hunt for mice. Beyond the farm, roll the Wolds, an ancient landscape of chalk downlands, medieval villages, and half-forgotten market towns. It's a county with a rich past in an England that's lesser-known, and it's utterly compelling.

Your base is a simply furnished, rustic yurt in its own little mown-grass compound, set against the backdrop of a sprawling hedgerow and with nothing but fields and woods in view. It's designed for a couple — there's a proper pine double bed, with tree-stump bedside tables — though families can add a couple of blow-up mattresses too if they wish. There's no power at all, which means a wood-burner for heat, solar lights inside and out, and torches provided to light your way after dark. There's cold water supplied to the adjacent kitchen shack, where there's all you need to make simple meals. You can heat water on the gas rings, or in a kettle on the wood-burner, and you might well need to do that as the open-air camping shower only supplies solar-warmed water. The loo is in a separate shack again, just a few steps away. The firepit becomes a focal point for the evening — if you want a barbecue, bring your own, but just make sure it's one you can raise off the ground.

Simple facilities, then, but perfect for the simple pleasures to be found down at Alex and Azra's place. Scratching chickens and hedgerow birds, walks in the woods and sunset drinks, marshmallows, and star-filled skies — you can see why the pair of them are living the dream, creating an artistic life in this dramatic landscape, and why they want to share it with visitors.

The Owner Says

Come to our Craft and Camping Retreat at Floral Farm to relax, unwind and connect to nature.
Stay in our spacious and comfortable yurt set in a field on the family farm in rural Lincolnshire.
The Yurt is nestled against a billowing hedgerow with beautiful views of fields, woods and large expansive skies. It is surrounded by areas allowed to go wild drawing in abundant array of wildlife. As  the evening draws in why not light the campfire and watch the sun go down and you might even witness the ethereal presence of the barn owls that regularly patrol the area swooping down to catch their next meal.
Alongside your stay you can also immerse yourself in one or more of our craft experiences such as Silk Screen Printing and/or one of our Green Woodworking Workshops.
