The second turning after Luxton and down a farm track with cow parsley brushing the sides of the car. Jump out to open the gate and there is the 12 acre field, now full of large hay bales casting shadows in the cut grass.
The camp lies tucked in beside a boundary hedge, first the composting loo with flowers growing inside! Then the gas powered shower, both with transparent roofs, and small solar lamps, so you don't get lost in the dark, Then the immaculate little camp kitchen, light and airy, a sink and gas cooker and hob. There is plenty of storage, chilly box, picnic baskets and tupper ware. Various pots and pans and utensils hang from the wood walls. A chair in the perfect position for a cuppa in the sun.
In the shade of the camp kitchen is the wood store with an honesty box.
A slate path leads you through the grass to the beautiful yurt. This is a true Mongolian yurt with lots of painted decoration. It feels as snug and weather proof as anything I have ever stayed in. There will be no flapping of tentage while you sleep here. Everything is well thought out and the large double bed well supplied with rugs with sheep skins either side. There is comfort and charm and three folding mattresses for small people. Should you arrive on a chilly night then you can light the wood burner and watch the flames dancing on the ceiling.
Immediately outside the yurt is a picnic bench and table. Further down the hill is the fire pit and tall tripod. Here you can spend as much time as you like trying out the grill, or cooking breakfast in the paella pan or braising some local meat in the Kotlich.
This is an ideal place if you are looking for seclusion, simplicity and comfort. There is space for children to play and relax, comfort enough to get into a good book and nod off in the sun. And if you like the adventure of cooking outside you have plenty of different ways to brew up your local produce.
