The Yurt at Midland Farm

Child friendly glamping, Herefordshire

About The Yurt at Midland Farm

At Midland Farm this gorgeous Yurt and the accompanying Shepherd's Hut is exclusively yours – there’s no sharing. Centred around an impressive French antique bed that offers the utmost in comfort, the authentic Mongolian yurt is for sleeping, and is jazzed up with beautiful Indian throws and rugs. Two single beds sleep children comfortably.

You are spoiled with the adjacent shepherd’s hut which contains your own private kitchen and bathroom facilities, with a red and cream vintage chic kitchen.  The bathroom has a proper loo and electric shower.

Midland Farm has a mix of friendly chickens who will come and visit you during the day, and will hopefully lay some eggs for your breakfast. A rich golden colour, they are as far removed from a supermarket egg as you can get. Kids love them! Go for a ride on our Shetland pony, have a picnic or bbq in your own private woodland, or run amuck in the meadow.

Outside is a large wooden deck with sun loungers and a chimenea for keeping warm on a chilly evening – or maybe for toasting a few marshmallows.

There's a wildlife pond full of frogs, newts and dragonflies, and you can often hear owls hooting in the woods by night.

You'll be surrounded by the farm's gorgeous gardens, which have been featured in the Royal Horticultural Society's magazine.

Nearby is the lovely market town of Hay on Wye; we recommend kayaking on the river Wye (downstream!) . The surrounding area is spoilt with scenic walks, not least the ridge at The Cat's Back and the famous Offa's Dyke path.

This is glamping in true luxury and style, whilst retaining the thrill of the outdoors.

Owner's Recommendations
The owner of this property has provided some personal recommendations for things to do, days out and places to eat near this property.
  • The Stagg Inn at Titley

    The Stagg Inn at Titley was the first pub in England to gain a Michelin star. It provides a relaxed and uplifting dining experience that you would not think the Marches can muster. It is a 15 mins drive from Midland Farm, and is a great evening destination. Sat nav can come in handy to ensure a stress free arrival. A real treat if you are celebrating or simply pushing the boat out

  • The Tram at Eardisley

    After all that frantic activity we recommend taking the weight off your aching feet at The Tram in Eardisley, which is about a 10 minutes drive from the yurt. It is excellent value with great food and a friendly welcome. It has excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and we agree! Best to call and book up ahead of your visit as the locals tend to get in first. The Tram is closed on Mondays, and Sunday evening is drinks only. Enjoy the Butty Bach, which is a local brew. They keep it well, no doubt helped by the high turnover.

  • Kayaking down the Wye

    Kayaking down the Wye One of the great attractions for many visitors to the area. There are several companies that hire kayaks or canoes and also offer lessons and trips out for the inexperienced family. One that’s only 5 mins from Hay is the Wye Valley Canoe Center (tel: 01497 847213). They collect you and bring you back, so there is no paddling up stream. Just the perfect way to glide past the countryside along the banks of the Wye. Its a wonderful day out for lovers of wildlife too; the Wye is home to many species of birds and mammals including otters.

  • Pony Trekking

    A wonderful way of exploring the spectacular Herefordshire countryside. There are many trekking centres in and around this area that cater for riders of all levels of ability. We like Brwyngwyn Riding Centre which is up in the hills above Hay-on-Wye, and offers memorable rides for all abilities. Non riders are welcome. Up at Brwyngwyn there is a true sense of remotness, with sweeping views over an uninhabiled landscape that feels you are in another world. Driving back down to Hay you realise you don’t know half of the UK. Have a chat with Becky who runs BRC on 01497 851 669.

  • Llanthony Priory

    Not your average dull ruin, but a jewel with a violent history. A great drive to Hay-on-Wye and then onward for about 10 miles over the Black mountains on a well surfaced single track road. Great for kids; picnic in the priory grounds and then a climb up the spectacular backdrop of the Ewyas Vale (on a well signposted track), with great views looking down over the priory. It is open all year round, entry is free and there is a car park. The Priory is a hidden gem that is also a photographer’s dream with strong lines and shadows.
