Peaceful, private yurt glamping in the heart of the Stamford Meadows

Stamford Meadows Glamping is tucked away in the heart of the meadows that is its namesake, its privacy ensured by the tall hazelwood trees that line it. This means that when you sink into its wood-burning hot tub, tilt your head back, and close your eyes, you can hear the local church’s bells ringing, or a train passing by, or the chirrups of the abundant local wildlife — yet no one knows you’re here. This is your own private area of solitude, a place for you and your loved ones to escape to for a while, with everything you need right on your doorstep.

Husband-and-wife team Amelia and Yogi landed on the idea for the site after Amelia’s sister held a “mini-festival” in her back garden, prompting the hosts to invest in a yurt and share the land they’ve enjoyed for years. They’ve certainly replicated that concept here, albeit without the mud-sodden clothes and uncomfortable night’s sleep, given how all of your necessities are but a stone’s throw away. Head out into the meadows straight from the site, take a short walk up the road to get into Stamford town centre, or enjoy a pint at a selection of locals that are each a stone’s throw away.

But if you’re looking to remain all but completely motionless during your stay — which is firmly possible as Amelia and Yogi even offer to pick guests up from the local train station — you can enjoy plenty of on-site R&R thanks to the alternative therapies offered by your hosts and local holistic practitioners. Yogi’s a GP with a history in acupuncture, providing sessions for visitors for an extra charge, while Amelia — a solicitor by trade — took a break from law to dive into the world of holistic therapy. As such, the couple know plenty of experts in the field of reflexology, remedial massage, aromatherapy, and more, who each visit the site to help guests reach their place of peace. Suffice to say, it’s all but guaranteed that you’ll leave this secret spot well-rested.

A lovely furnished bell tent is also available for those larger groups and can sleep an additional four people.
