The Owner Says
Daisy offers comfort and relaxation with a double bed, futons, rugs and soft Cotswolds sheepskins to keep you warm. The woodburner and drinks making facilities add to the comfort and you will have a great view over the small holding and Cotswold hills beyond. Daisy is sited closest to the bathroom block.
Daisy is an 18ft sand coloured yurt, fully equipped with a double bed and linen for a great nights sleep. Extra beds are in the form of futons that will be made up ready for your arrival. We have provided a 2 ring gas burner, cafetieres and cups in the yurt for making your morning brew. Fairy lights add to the relaxed atmosphere and the woodburner is very efficient at keeping you warm - the throws and blankets will make sure you stay snug. We provide a solar box/battery from which you can run lights and recharge your phones/tablets. You will have your own campfire area and use of the 'kotlich' which stands over the campfire and can be used to make soups/stews and as a grill/bbq plate. We encourage you to cook outdoors rather than inside the yurts and provide a covered area for eating. In high season we will host weekly pizza nights - just let us know if you wish to take part (small cost per person to cover wood and ingredients).
You will have your own bathroom a short distance away which has an electric shower, flushing loo and sink. This will be yours to use throughout your stay so you can leave your belongings in there. The utilities room (in the same block) offers food storage areas, fridges and washing up facilities. Loo rolls, soap, washing up liquid will be provided. A generous amount of wood will be provided upon arrival with further logs available to buy.
Features & Facilities
Furnished yurts with double beds, bedding and linen, blankets, rugs, wood-burning stove, storage, lamps, solar lights and phone-recharging and a 2-ring gas stove for making your morning cuppa. Each yurt has its own dedicated bathroom within the field with flushing loo, sink and electric shower. Kitchen with fridges, microwave, washing-up facilities and food storage. Outside covered cooking area with seats and tables too, next to the cob oven. Campfires (and campfire cooking) encouraged. Weekly pizza evenings using the cob oven. Free-range chickens roaming around the place. Ample car parking at the entrance (close to the yurts) and wheelbarrows can be used to transport bags/sleepy children the short distance to the yurts.
Adam Henson, of BBC Countryfile fame, has his Cotswold Farm Park (01451 850307) a few miles down the road and the Cotswold Wildlife Park (01993 823 006) is also in nearby Burford – both great for families. For many, simply exploring the pretty Cotswold villages is the main attraction. Easy but pleasant footpaths link most together, so bring a good OS map of the area. Chipping Campden is just across the fields. The village Church – St. James – at the north end of the town is famed for having one of the oldest altar tapestries (pre-Reformation) and largest brass works in England. And the village high street is famously pretty but unusual – long, broad and flanked on each side by an almost unbroken single terrace of varied architectural styles. Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are a short drive away, as well as Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford, a little further.
Food & Drink
The yurts are well kitted out for self-catering (and campsite cooking) and from the rustic, characterful porch shop guests can buy homemade jams, marmalades & chutneys, and seasonal produce (when available) including tomatoes, plums, apples and (occasionally) eggs from the hens. Plans are afoot to develop the vegetable garden to provide a small amount of ‘pick your own’ veg too. In Chipping Campden there are a number of tea-rooms, pubs and restaurants including The Cotswold House Hotel (01386 840330), The Noel Arms (01386 840317) with award-winning curry nights, The Kings Arms (01386 840256) and The Bantam tea-rooms (01386 840386). Chipping Campden also offers shops including the Co-Op, One Stop and a greengrocers selling local produce(01386 840577). Chinese and Indian take-aways available too.
From the M5, junction 9 Tewkesbury/Evesham. Follow A46/A44 and take the first left at the top of Fish Hill. Stay on this road for approximately 3 miles and Campden Yurts is on the right. Use Sat Nav 'GL55 6PN' but do not turn off King Combe Lane – the site entrance is on the road, do not follow the farm track opposite.
Moreton-in-Marsh and Honeybourne are the nearest train stations. A small number of local buses do service Chipping Campden too including Excel.
