The owner, Simon at Inside Out Camping could not have been more helpful. Before the trip he made numerous telephone calls to let us know information and answered any queries we had. On arrival we were pleased with the Yurt, it was just as described and shown on the website. There was enough crockery and cutlery, logs for the log burning stove, fresh bedding on the beds – luxury compared to camping! There was even a solar powered light and fairy lights which were so pretty in the evening. The skylight enabled you to look at the stars from the comfort of your bed, beautiful. On Sunday the heavens opened, in true Lake District style, and it was so nice to lock the door and leave the Yurt without the bother of packing away a wet tent in the rain. It really was “Glamping” and we may never camp again!
As seasoned campers we knew what to expect. If you think luxury camping you would not be disappointed. If you’re expecting the amenities of a B&B with hot water on tap, maybe this is not for you and this is perhaps the reason why some Yurts have received poor reviews?
Finally the location of the Yurt was superb. Grange is a stunning little village in the beautiful valley of Borrowdale. There are some fantastic walks, both long and short, from Grange and it is near to the legendary Shepherds Cafe. The open-top bus from Grange into Keswick is great fun for young and old alike! We had a great stay and would certainly return.
