Once upon a time we went to stay at Somerset Yurts, on a real dairy farm. We had no idea what a treat we were in for, this is glamping at its absolute – yet affordable – best. I am a firm believer in having a few luxuries when camping and home comforts, like this teapot and the mugs which were provided. You can get a full run down on the Yurt set up and family friendly facilities in the video below.
Mister G discovered leaping through hay bales in the barn, testing his physical limits. Mr A discovered relaxing in the cosy Yurt with the fire he built in the wood burning stove (and having 3G internet).
The kids enjoyed meeting new friends, Annie’s children, children from the other 2 yurts and farm animals.
Miss L enjoyed getting her glamping gear on, (thanks to Next who gave her the hat), and all of us loved our farm tour. You can meet the cows too in the video.
Men make fire, women make Instagram was the order of the weekend. Our yurting neighbours were the Mammasaurus clan, Somerset Yurts was an amazing place to hang out with friends with kids
The kids ran wild and free as the smoke rose from the BBQ and later the camp fire.
Pictures help to tell the story, but video can take you there! Full tour of all the facilities and the days out included. Something happened to me too, I felt like a 16 year old at Glastonbury again, albeit with lots more home comforts, it was so utterly rejuvenating to be outdoors. I really couldn’t have pictured beforehand just how magical our experience would be – the whole family felt transformed. Can’t recommend this enough!
Emma, Mark and family are lovely and made us feel so at home, so do check out the Yurts and tell them we sent you!
To book Somerset Yurts
You can hire a yurt, or a pair, or even all four and have the field to yourselves – perfect for a special occasion.

Fyne Court – Gorgeous National Trust gardens and tea shop with a real focus on play for children.
Cheddar Gorge – we decided the caves were incredible but indoors and it was far too nice to be in a dark cave, so we just paid a few pounds to walk along the gorge instead, worth it for the amazing views. Its a long but incredible circular walk so pack a picnic and supplies. We failed on that so just walked most the way up and down again.
Burnham On Sea beach – the tide was a long way out when we went but the kids enjoyed playing in the sand, chips and ice creams. Lyme Regis is under an hour away on the Dorset coast which I would definitely recommend from childhood memory.
There are lots more ideas here
I’m really honoured to be a finalist for the third year running in the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Video Award, thanks so much for all the votes! I’m loving making video more than ever, and the kids seem to be getting as much out of it as I do.
