The Owner Says
Buttercup offers comfort and relaxation with a king size bed, futons, rugs and soft Cotswolds sheepskins to keep you warm. The woodburner and drinks making facilities add to the comfort and you will have a great view over the small holding and Cotswold hills beyond, as well as the neighbour's Dexter cows and St James' Church tower.
Buttercup is an 18ft sand coloured yurt, fully equipped with a king size bed and memory foam mattress for a great nights sleep. Extra beds are in the form of futons that will be made up ready for your arrival. We have provided a 2 ring gas burner, cafetieres and cups in the yurt for making your morning brew. Fairy lights add to the relaxed atmosphere and the woodburner is very efficient at keeping you warm - the throws and blankets will make sure you stay snug. We provide a solar box/battery from which indoor solar lights run. You will have your own campfire area and use of the 'kotlich' which stands over the campfire and can be used to make soups/stews and as a grill/bbq plate. The cute cook hut holds a gas cooker with grill, oven and hob and our wooden shelter provides a covered area for eating, socialising, crafting and more with a sense of being outdoors, indoors! In high season we will host weekly pizza nights - just let us know if you wish to take part (small cost per person to cover wood and ingredients).
You will have your own bathroom a short distance away which has an electric shower, flushing loo and sink. This will be yours to use throughout your stay so you can leave your belongings in there. The utilities room (in the same block) offers food storage areas, fridges and washing up facilities and sockets for charging phones/tablets etc. Loo rolls, soap, washing up liquid will be provided. A generous amount of wood will be provided upon arrival with further logs available to buy.
About Campden Yurts
Suitable ForGlamping only. Tents, campervans, caravans, dogs, stag or hen parties – no. Family groups, same sex groups, families, couples – yes. Uneven ground and the hillside setting mean it's not suitable for wheelchair users.
Adam Henson, of BBC Countryfile fame, has his Cotswold Farm Park (01451 850307) a few miles down the road and the Cotswold Wildlife Park (01993 823 006) is also in nearby Burford – both great for families. For many, simply exploring the pretty Cotswold villages is the main attraction. Easy but pleasant footpaths link most together, so bring a good OS map of the area. Chipping Campden is just across the fields. The village Church – St. James – at the north end of the town is famed for having one of the oldest altar tapestries (pre-Reformation) and largest brass works in England. And the village high street is famously pretty but unusual – long, broad and flanked on each side by an almost unbroken single terrace of varied architectural styles. Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are a short drive away, as well as Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford, a little further.
Food & Drink
The yurts are well kitted out for self-catering (and campsite cooking) and from the rustic, characterful porch shop guests can buy homemade jams, marmalades & chutneys, and seasonal produce (when available) including tomatoes, plums, apples and (occasionally) eggs from the hens. Plans are afoot to develop the vegetable garden to provide a small amount of ‘pick your own’ veg too. In Chipping Campden there are a number of tea-rooms, pubs and restaurants including The Cotswold House Hotel (01386 840330), The Noel Arms (01386 840317) with award-winning curry nights, The Kings Arms (01386 840256) and The Bantam tea-rooms (01386 840386). Chipping Campden also offers shops including the Co-Op, One Stop and a greengrocers selling local produce(01386 840577). Chinese and Indian take-aways available too.
