Glamping on a farm
Occasionally each of us craves space and time away from it all â€“ glamping in yurts is a wonderful way to feed that need. Glamorous camping may seem like a contradiction, but the reality of it combines our love of luxury with our deep yearning to be in the wild. Based on a farm in Great Oxendon, Country Bumpkin Yurts has introduced a new way to relax and enjoy the East Midlands countryside. With bridle ways, great walking, cycling, leisure and eating out opportunities just a stones-throw away, we can’t wait to welcome you to your relaxed retreat.
Our idyllic farm setting is the perfect place to unwind and re-connect with nature and the people you love. Whilst staying with us, you will get to see the workings of a family-run farm â€“ Waterloo Cottage Farm. You will meet the lively little piglets and the occasional cattle and sheep. You’ll also meet the two friendly farm dogs as you roam the site. Children especially love meeting the animals.
Our site comprises of three traditionally designed yurts, spacious and with full access to all the modern amenities. Each yurt will be based on a wooden platform, with picturesque views across the farm and surrounding area. A log burner, shabby chic furnishings and cosy beds are in each tent so you can rest in comfort and style. With rustic-luxury bathrooms and a shared kitchen, you will have everything you need. Our wood burning hot tub makes it a glamping site for those looking for an extra special stay.
We should explain what a yurt is!
Yurt is Russian for â€˜Dwelling’. It is a nomadic shelter lived in for thousands of years by tribes from the near East and Central Asia. Country Bumpkin Yurts have built upon this traditional structure and added a dose of luxury!
A stay in a yurt will allow you to experience the uplifting and calming effects of living without corners in a circular space, conducive to balance and harmony. And the roof window lets you watch the stars across the sky as you feel yourself unwind. The Yurts architecture is not only extremely practical but also aesthetically beautiful.
If you ever decide to leave your beautiful yurt, you will find plenty to do both on and off the farm. Whether you explore by foot, on two wheels or four, you will be enchanted by the area that we love. The East Midlands is your oyster. did the name for our Glamping business come from?â€
We are asked that a lot, it is inspired by Lara’s cousin Jess. She calls us Country Bumpkins when she comes up to visit us from London. I believe it has something to do with the long walks through the fields with the dogs â€“ which she claims she â€˜loves really’.
Visiting the East Midlands countryside from the city of London is certainly a different kind of experience. A name for the glamping site and cafe which encapsulates who we are and the kind of experience we want to share was right there in her name for us. We just needed to add on a key element â€“ yurts! Country Bumpkin Yurts it is. We love it.
