Our review of Hidden Valley Yurts and the Lake House

ACCOMMODATION AND PRICES

There are five luxury yurts available for hire at Hidden Valley Yurts – three sleeping up to seven people, and two sleeping five.  Each individual yurt has its own benefits depending on location – some located away from the others, some nearer the communal facilities, some with sunnier or shadier pitches.  Either way, all the yurts are fully furnished, beautifully painted and well-equipped for all your family glamping needs.  The yurts are located in a south-facing glamping meadow and each sits on its own wooden deck with table and chairs, chimenea, built-in BBQ and wood store.  There are well-equipped communal kitchen and bathroom facilities, while one of the yurts has its own exclusive use of a separate kitchen, and some have their own compost loos.  The Lake House, meanwhile, tucked away in a hidden valley away from the other accommodation, is a luxury modern house sleeping four in two bedrooms with large comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and spacious living and dining area.  Originally a cricket pavilion, the property has a covered outdoor veranda and huge double deck perfect for sunbathing, BBQs and stargazing.

CHILD FRIENDLY HOLIDAY FEATURES

Holidays at Hidden Valley Yurts are all about getting back to nature – peace and quiet, playing and laughter.  So if you’re looking for a family friendly holiday destination full of TVs, computers and loud music then this is probably not the place for you.  But for those looking for a quiet rural retreat where children can run carefree through vast wildflower meadows, meet the local animals, make dens till the night draws in, and play wholesome outdoor games like boules, badminton and football then Hidden Valley Yurts is just the place.   Equipment for outdoor games is provided and there’s also a well-stocked indoor toy and games cupboard.

PARENT FRIENDLY HOLIDAY FEATURES

Hidden Valley Yurts is primarily a glamping destination so, unsurprisingly, there aren’t a huge range of luxury parent friendly facilities on offer.  However, we’d note that baby and toddler equipment like high chairs are provided free of charge, as are the majority of items you might think you’d need on a camping trip – it’s worth checking the owners’ website before you travel to save yourself the hassle of packing equipment you won’t end up using!  Make sure you remember to bring essentials like wellies and slippers though.  We like the fact there’s a complimentary bottle of locally made apple juice awaiting guests’ arrival, and you can also help yourself to fresh free range eggs for breakfast.  For those parents seeking a bit of extra luxury during the holiday, there are variety of additional extras available through local companies – from hot tub hire and spa treatments to in-house catering and breakfast boxes or afternoon teas delivered to your door.  A traditional village pub serving good food is roughly a mile’s walk away.  WiFi is available at the Lake House but not the glamping site.  Sorry, no pets are allowed.

IN SUMMARY…

The owners of Hidden Valley Yurts describe their holidays as “camping made easy” – which sounds perfect to us!  We love camping trips with the kids and the glamping accommodation on offer here, in an idyllic rural location, looks like the perfect place for a relaxing outdoor-orientated holiday.  And for those who prefer a more traditional self-catering break, the Lake House really does look like a beautiful property in which to while away the school holidays.

WHAT THE OWNERS SAY

“Imagine a holiday where the night sky is so dark you can see the Milky Way and the only noises are a babbling brook and birdsong. Imagine being surrounded by nature in a beautiful valley far away from road noise and bright lights. That’s what you’ll find here. Set in 80 acres of meadow and woodland, we have 5 Mongolian yurts which are large, cosy and comfortable, spread out along a field next to a stream, and a separate Lake House, an idyllic home away from home looking out over its own private lake.”
