The Owner Says
Our two yurts are interconnected, providing the perfect getaway for up to six people. One is used as the bedroom and the other the living space. We only rent this as one unit, so you have complete privacy, peace and quiet. The wood burner can be used to heat the yurts, boil a kettle or cook an egg; all you need to do is get it going. Our yurts epitomise the glamping offer (glamorous camping). Whilst still providing you with the feeling of camping out with nature, we want you to feel spoilt and inspired. There is a solar powered cool box for example, but nowhere to plug in your hair straighteners or toothbrush! (Also, no Wi-Fi)
About Fordhall Farm Yurts

NearbyThe Shropshire Hills (01588 674080), around 45 minutes to the south, make for an excellent day-trip, as does stopping short in the country town of Shrewsbury, with its fabulous castle (01743 358516) and a cluster of decent museums. Closer to home, the National Turst's, 18th-century Attingham Park (01743 708123) is fascinating. You can explore the mansion inside and out, with extensive grounds to explore and, on a slightly smaller scale, Hodnet Hall Gardens (01630 685786) is also just 15 minutes away. For something different, it's around a 25-minute drive north to Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker (01270 629219) – not so secret anymore – which gives a remarkable insight into the post-Second World War fears of nuclear weapons, alongside fabulous displays and a wider look at the UK's military history.
Food & DrinkThe Farm Shop sells a variety of produce: milk, butter and bread, seasonal vegetables, cheeses, drinks, jams beer, cider, wines and much more, while Arthur’s Farm Kitchen serves cooked breakfasts, hot lunches, Sunday Roasts and light bites. For supermarket supplies though, there's a Sainsbury’s Local (01630 606400) 25 minus' walk away and a Morrison's Supermarket (01630 658842) a bit further (more like 45 minutes). The closest pub is the Kings Head (01630 478207; 20 minute walk), though it's worth heading slightly further to the excellent Red Lion (01630 652602; 40-45 minute walk). Finally, head to town every Wednesday for Market Drayton's fabulous weekly farmer's market!
