Imagine running away to a secret meadow where the sky rolls on forever, nights sparkle with stars and wild flowers bloom amid soft grasses. Yep, sounds totally magical, but everything’s booked up this summer, right? Wrong! Because you, my friend, are a clued up Muddy gal! Thanks to the lovely people at Wild Meadow, Raynham, we’ve found you an incredibly special corner of England. Escape the July crowds and prepare to unwind and reconnect with nature…and each other.
How does a 3 night midweek stay in a super comfortable hand-crafted luxury yurt set in the grounds of one the East of England’s most beautiful stately homes sound? Er…yes please! Tell me more…
Your yurt is called Bee Orchid, one of only 4, generously spaced in a five-acre meadow of wild-flowers. Swoon! Each has a sumptuous super-king bed, luxe bedding, a wood-burning stove and snuggly blankets for sitting under the stars. You get your own barbecue and outdoor seating area plus each yurt has its own designated toilet and shower – if you’ve ever been to a festival you’ll know the exquisite joy of your own exclusive throne room, no queuing required!
If you need to check on things back in the real world (nope, we’re never going back there actually), there’s mains electricity to each yurt for charging devices and lighting bedside lamps for gazing at each other’s blissed out faces. Or reading. Each to her own.
Way-marked paths lead from the yurt meadow to dreamy woodland, parkland and riverside walks. And Raynham is a short drive to the stunning North Norfolk coast, with magnificent wild beaches including award-winning Holkham and Wells-next-the-sea. There are fantastic pubs, restaurants and plenty of family-friendly days out including Pensthorpe Natural Park and the Watatunga Wildlife Reserve.
Oh yes, and if you love cooking, there’s also the (shared) Turnip Tent for convivial dining and cooking. (Turnip was the nickname of a Townshend family farming ancestor!) You get your own fridge and all the cooking kit needed to make the most of North Norfolk’s mouthwatering natural produce.
Did we mention? The yurt sleeps four, so if you want to wander the fields with your small folk, bring a couple with you. It’s the ideal break for nature-loving families too!
