Our 17ft Yurt has sustainable hardwood frame with traditional canvas cover, set in a 2 acre Organic Meadow (about 70m from Field Maple Yurt). The Yurt is colourfully furnished with a kingsize bed (with pocket sprung mattress), bedding, sofa, table & chairs, storage & hanging space, solar powered fairy lights, tea lights, lanterns and extra blankets in a trunk at the end of the bed. (An extra camp bed can be supplied by arrangement).
Brilliantly equipped camp kitchen with 2 gas rings, a grill, tapped spring water and coolers with ice blocks provided for keeping food fresh. A short distance off the large private deck is a compost loo, whilst 100m across the meadow is the Luxury ‘Wash House’ with abundant solar heated hot water (backed up with electricity!). Inside, is a really spacious & beautifully equipped, private shower room with basin for sole use of Shade Oak Yurt. There are also 2 flushing loos and basins with mirrors and shaver points as well as a Belfast sink for washing up.
Also in the wash house is a fridge/freezer for storing food, well stocked with ice and ice blocks. The Yurt is set on its own wooden deck with outdoor table, chairs, recliners and a fire bowl to use as a barbecue or heat source on chilly evenings.
The award winning Hopes of Longtown is the site's nearest shop, selling locally sourced produce, newspapers, books, local books, maps, guides, gifts and postcards. The Bridge Inn at Michaelchurch is without doubt one of the best places to eat in the area. It’s an easy 15 minute stroll (usually longer coming back uphill!) and the pub is an excellent place for meal and a drink by the river under the weeping willows.
We really enjoy welcoming guests to share the unrivalled peace and tranquility of our 'High Meadow'. These beautifully crafted structures are decorated in cosy cheerful colours, with comfort and attention to detail very much the order of the day. A properly comfy kingsize bed, sofa, table and chairs and plenty of clothes hanging space are topped off with a small but brilliant wood burner to keep you warm and cosy. Relax and curl up with a book from the book shelf , take time to enjoy one of the board games or a game of cards or pore over one of the local maps to plan your next day exploring one of the beautiful, hidden local valleys.
Both our yurts offer idylic pastoral views across the Escley Valley to the East, from the comfort of your own private, elevated deck. The dramatic landscape of Hatterral Ridge, Hay Bluff and the Black Mountains to the West can be seen from the top of the farm and 'Field Maple's' Deck.
Also on your deck is an extremely well equipped camp kitchen with all the pots, pans and utensils you need, along with a few little extras such as tea, coffee, salt & pepper, olive oil and a pint of milk to get you started when you arrive.
A short walk across the Meadow (100 m) is the luxuriously appointed 'Washouse' with 2 splendid and spacious shower rooms, one of which also has a freestanding Slipper bath, perfect for a relaxing soak. Despite being shared facilities, the shower rooms, flush loos and plentiful basins mean no waiting for your morning ablutions. And the beautiful spring water is heated by the Sun - what more could you ask for!
Getting up into the Black Mountains couldn't be easier, a strenuous 45 minute walk from the Farm gate, but we can also direct you to the car park at the base of 'The Cat's Back' (10 min drive) for an appreciation of the stunning views across to The Malvern Hills, without using quite so much puff!
Being so close to the National Park means we have little or no light pollution and we enjoy some of the darkest skies in the UK. Star Gazing on a clear summer night is a stunning experience.
And if what you really enjoy at the end of the day is a good pint and someone else's cooking, our wonderful local Pub 'The Bridge Inn' is a short 15 min walk across the farm for great local Beer, Cider and creative, eclectic food.
So come and let the Meadow do it's work as the perfect place to relax and unwind, you won't be disappointed.
We look forward to sharing our little bit of Paradise with you!
