High Meadow Yurts, Glebe Farm, Michaelchurch Escley, Hereford, HR2 0PR

A wonderfully furnished glamping yurt with luxury facilities on a wildlife-rich farm, set between the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye Valley

Time seems to stands wonderfully still at High Meadow Yurts. In days gone by the site was a 40 acre working farm, set outside the Brecon Beacons National Park, in a valley peppered with lush ferns and ancient trees. Today, the traditional farm remains, however two delightful, wonderfully furnished abodes have been added, allowing visitors to experience this idyllic farming scene for themselves. Perfect for campers seeking a touch of luxury, couples after a cosy break and small families in need of a hassle-free holiday. But whatever the reason you visit High Meadow Yurts – one thing's for sure – you’re in for a treat.

The site's innovative owners (Anna and Hugh) have really thought outside the tent to create quality accommodation. A combination of traditional Mongolian design and British craftsmanship, Shade Oak Yurt is made from a varnished, sustainable hard wood frame and canvas cover, complete with natural wool felt insulation to keep you cosy. This is truly a yurt designed to withstand anything the British climate (and Mongolian for that matter) can throw at it. Colourfully furnished on the inside with a kingsize bed, sofa and storage space, the yurt also comes with a thoughtfully equipped kitchen and private wooden deck with barbecue, so there’s really no excuse for not cooking up some delicious local produce!

There's also plenty to do in the surrounding area. The site sits just a mile from the Brecon Beacons National Park, where there’s a wealth of hiking, mountain biking and pony trekking opportunities. Once the sun has set, the National Park transforms into one of only five International Dark Sky Reserves, meaning stargazing here is incredible. The majestic Wye Valley is also a short drive away for canoeing and kayaking near Hay-on-Wye or Symonds Yat. Jewel in its crown, the charming town of Hay sits just inside the Welsh border, and has become the undisputed second hand book capital of the world. In 1988, the town’s fabulous literary festival (taking place over 10 days in May–June) was established to celebrate all aspects of the creative arts, and was notably endorsed by former US president Bill Clinton as “The Woodstock of the mind”. The tiny town centre is dotted with fascinating shops and characterful, narrow cobblestone lanes, which inspire the creation of copycat book towns across the globe.

Back at High Meadow Yurts, there's an abundance of wildlife to spot. Owls, buzzards, woodpeckers, bats, rabbits, foxes and badgers are always in
residence, with plenty of opportunities to see them up close. Anna and Hugh can show you the best places to wait and watch the large family of badgers, going about their evening routines! Or, if all that nature proves too much excitement, you can always recline on your deck with a delicious glass of wine, and wait for the stars to come out and illuminate the sky above. In other words, High Meadow Yurts is where you can leave behind the stresses and strains of everyday life, chill out, and get re-acquainted with life's simple pleasures.
