Country Bumpkin Yurts

Muddy says: Relax in the gorgeous green countryside with Country Bumpkin Yurts. Based on a farm in Great Oxenden, this glamping site offers complete relaxation in a seriously stylish way.

Every now and then we all crave a little time away and space and glamping is the perfect way to feed that need. Glamorous camping may seem like a contradiction, but it combines luxury with our deep yearning to be in the wild.

Based in Great Oxendon, Country Bumpkin Yurts offers great walking, cycling, leisure and eating out opportunities just a stones-throw away, we can’t wait to welcome you to your relaxed retreat.

The 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 Waterloo Cottage Farm and meet the lively little piglets, lambs and the characteristic highland cows.

The site is made up of three traditionally designed yurts – each one spacious and with full access to all modern amenities. Each yurt is 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 be sure to rest in complete comfort and style. With rustic-luxury bathrooms and a shared kitchen, you will have everything you need and a wood burning hot tub makes it just that bit extra luxurious.

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 recently opened Canvas Café serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea. Expect a homecooked menu, locally sourced produce and organic wherever possible with vegan and gluten-free options too.

If you can tear yourself away from your tent – you’ll 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.
