Truly indulgent glamping in three extremely stylish yurts on the slopes of May hill. A decadent room under the stars on the edge of the wye valley and the Forest of Dean Mrs Mills has an established background in fine food and exceptional customer service. Coupled with a secret desire to live in the Jazz age she has created a idyllic retreat where only great food comes to the table and her vintage values and style welcomes you instantly.
Each Yurt has a luxury king-size bed, duck feather duvet and pillows to sink into. They have a woodburner that will be lit for you before arrival, if in the chillier months and allows for an open crown for when the sun is shining. The south-west facing site means it is basked in sunshine in the summer months and always has a view of glorious sunsets across the valley if nature decides to offer one up.
The woodburner will heat a large kettle from which you can fill the vintage washstands of an evening. The hotplates mean you can warm one of Mrs Mills' delicious stews and tear off chunks of sourdough bread into it as the sun goes down. A menu can be found in your Yurt along with a nip of sherry to work up an appetite.
Each yurt has their own fire pit, a barbeque and a gas camping stove to cover all possible ways to cook.
Inside each yurt has a kitchenette with everything you need to self-cater. It has complimentary tea and locally roasted coffee along with the essentials (salt, pepper, sugar, olive oil, tomato ketchup (bacon butties!) and your own herb garden. There is a fridge in the communal area a short walk away.
All power within the yurts is solar, and terribly good it is too these days. It means you can still feel like you're camping and there'll be nothing to interrupt the dawn chorus. If you can't bare to be with out your iPad then there is a secure charge point and WiFi in the snug.
Within the farmhouse, less than 100m away are private 'beach hut' bathrooms with towelling robes and complimentary Asquith and Somerset toiletries. Please note these are on the first floor up a flight of stairs.
There is also a comfy communal snug with sofas, an old rocking chair and all the local information needed to plan your break. Mrs Mills serves tea and buns at the table daily and it is also where you can collect your picnic hampers or dinners should you wish to order them.
As we have children and have been glamping with them both at various ages; we can provide fire guards, travel cots, high chairs, a baby bath, toys and you can have full use of the playground.
