My husband & I love camping with our toddler but decided to treat ourselves to our first family 'glamping' break for our 5 year wedding anniversary. We stayed in 'Beachy' yurt which was lovely & private with amazing views of the valley. Despite the awful weather (it rained every day) we were snug & cosy & made good use of the wood burning stove. The yurts are really spacious & clean, very comfy beds & twinkling fairy lights give it a magical feel. Our son (2.5) absolutely loved it & did not want to leave our 'holiday house'. Because of the weather we didn't get to enjoy any of the surrounding walks or the fishery but we definitely want to come back & explore the area properly. We did however make excellent use of the communal yurtery & met some lovely family's with children. The yurtery is really spacious & well equipped & there are lots of toys & games to entertain the little ones while you prepare a meal. The only downside was a large group of twenty-something's who didn't make an effort to clean up properly after themselves or respect it as a family friendly space. This was a shame as the whole set up is very child friendly & there is even a baby bath in the family shower room which our son (who hates showers) loved splashing around in. The service from the family who run Meon Springs was excellent from the booking process & provision of information to during our stay. Jamie even drove to meet my brother in law & his wife who joined us for 1 night, after they got lost so he could show them the way. All in all this was an amazing family break, the yurts are just gorgeous & it's such a treat to have a fire inside, electricity & such comfortable sleeping arrangements (plus no soggy tent to put down at the end). Highly recommended.
