Ivy Grange Farm Yurts

The 5 yurts are generously spaced in a safe 3-acre meadow, each sitting on raised decking with its own camping gas stove, campfire and bar-b-q. What better than to sit out as the sun goes down, enjoying an al-fresco meal as you watch the swallows skim the meadow and then see the bats come out as dusk settles, whilst the tawny owls hoot in the trees. Once inside your yurt, besides your cosy wood-burner the comfy double beds have lovely thick duvets to ensure a really good night’s sleep under the inky black sky with the Milky Way arcing above. In the morning, take a luxurious Woodland Shower - with piping hot water this is a delight at any time of the day (or night) - listen out for the bullfinches whistling overhead. Heaven! Look out for mid-week deals outside of high season!

Secret Meadows

Tucked away at a 115-acre wildlife site, Secret Meadows takes glamping to new heights. All the accommodation units have a private loo, basin and hot shower, as well as traditional kitchen facilities with Belfast sink and hot and cold running water. Beds are ready-made and organic towels provided. Luxury Lodge Tents are set in wooded glades overlooking one of many wildflower meadows, with nature trails on the doorstep. These tents are beautifully furnished (including a hand crafted 4-poster bed) for a country-inspired home away from home while the quirky Gypsy’s Rest (gypsy caravan with shepherd’s hut), and Hobbit Box, provide their own special charms with wooded surrounds, meadow views and the highest glamping standards. Each booking supports the nature conservation charity which owns the site. Secret Meadows ‘Specials’ include luxury food hampers, bushcraft workshops and an onsite pantry shop stocked by the local farm shop.
