A Yurt Adventure
Last weekend Greg and I headed off for a break in Lincolnshire with a couple of our friends. We spent 2 nights in a Mongolian Yurt right in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside and it was a perfect weekend.
I have to admit I’m not the camping type, I used to be back in my Duke of Edinburgh days but the older I get, the more I prefer a little luxury. Our friends are regular Yurt-goers and they finally convinced me to give it a go. I’ll tell you, this is the type of camping I can definitely get on board with.
We stayed in the French yurt (there are 5 yurts in total, all with a unique theme) and I was thrilled to discover it had a HUGE super-king size, four poster bed. The Yurt was beautifully decorated and everything was so well thought-out. The icing on the cake was our own private bathroom with a super swish steam cabin!
We arrived late on Friday afternoon to a very warm welcome from the owners (Kath and Darren are the loveliest people and took care of our every need) and gathered around the firepit with our friends for a few drinks and nibbles. There is no wi-fi or electricity (some of the yurts have electrics but not ours) and I didn’t mind one bit. The weekend was so relaxed and chilled and it was lovely to switch off.
On Saturday we started the day with a home cooked breakfast of local produce, then headed into Lincoln for a wander and a spot of lunch. I visited Lincoln often as a child but this was the first visit for around 10 years so it was lovely to see that it hadn’t changed all that much.
The weather was glorious so we enjoyed a cheeky cocktail in a beer garden before returning to the yurts to relax for a couple of hours. It was lovely to laze on the giant bed and watch the chickens wander past whilst reading and napping. Bliss.
The whole weekend was full of yummy food, heaps of laughter, board games, sunsets and conversations around the fire. Just perfect.
I was quite sad to leave on Sunday morning and will definitely be booking another break in the future. The whole weekend was the perfect way to round off a busy summer, and help transition into the slower pace of Autumn.
