About Country Bumpkin Yurts
Suitable ForGlamping only. So tents, campervans and caravans – no. Families, couples, groups of up to 14 people, dogs (£5 per night) – yes.
NearbyWalking and cycling are always a popular starting point. The farm has direct access to Brampton Valley Way – a popular local route – and the town of Market Harborough is within walking distance (it's less than 2 miles on foot). It's a lovely town; great for shopping, eating out and learning the local history. By car, meanwhile, you can head further to find Northampton (15 miles) and Leicester (20 miles), each full of history and with plenty to occupy you on rainy days. The local fishing lakes (¾ mile; 01858 434098) are just down the road and historic Kelmarsh Hall (2½ miles; 01604 686543) opens its house and gardens during the holidays. To truly unwind, there's also a meditation centre (3 miles; 01604 686778) nearby!
Food & DrinkThe farm is also home to an award winning farm shop – Waterloo Cottage Farm Shop (01858 467158) – so there's no excuse not to have a big old barbecue for all the gang! For the nearest pub, hop to The George in Great Oxendon (01858 465205; less than 400ft away) – newly refurbished and serving excellent food. For anything else, there are plenty of cafés and restaurants in Market Harborough.
