“Magical family break”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

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.

Being a total wuss and not able to set up a tent myself this yurt holiday seemed the ideal compromise. I'll admit to being nervous as my kids (aged 14, 12 and 9) can be 'bored' as they put it very easily. I booked two nights over the Easter holidays and thought I'd give it a go.

Well, we loved it. The kids have raved about how wonderful our holiday was all the way home. Everything was just perfect. The yurt was immaculate, the yurtery such a bonus with its fridge for each yurt, cooking facilities, washing up liquid etc, everything you might wish for. Piping hot showers and clean loo's. My 4.30am trip to the loo, under a blanket of stars, although cold was just a fun part of the experience! The fires - well, my kids loved the fire pit, our woodburning fire in the yurt itself and the communal campfire by the yurtery.

The views were stunning. We saw the cows being milked at 5pm, ate bacon rolls at the fishery cafe (delicious!), met the friendly owners. I felt properly relaxed for the first time in ages. On the last night the kids ran around with their new found friends with glow sticks while I sat chatting to adults round the campfire. It made me appreciate how wonderful the UK is and how much kids haven't really changed and still love the old fashioned stuff.

I recommended torches and glow sticks for extra fun. The Izaac Walton pub close by in East Meon is nice, simple pub fare and has friendly owners. I also suggest you look on youtube for the "how to start a good fire in a woodburning stove" as we wished we had before we went!! Clearly I was never a girl scout!

Room Tip: Beechy is probably the most secluded yurt but all of them are set far enough apart for privacy

Had a very peaceful stay at Meon Springs at the start of October. My partner fished whilst I just
chilled in the very cosy Hut. Very friendly staff couldn't do enough to make our break relaxing.
Would definately recommend and will return.

Stayed here with friends during October half term 2012 this was our second visit. Love it love it love it. You get a real sense of camping but with the comforts of home (bed, running water and electricity). A great base to explore Hampshire. The yurtery is great for socialising with either friends you are staying with or other guests.

We stayed in the yurt village last June. The weather wasn't on our side but that didn't matter as the yurt was nice and snug. We did manage a BBQ and found the communal area well equipped.

Jamie was the to greet us when we first arrived and was really helpful.

We look forward to coming back next year!

This is our second time at Meon yurts and it was just as good as the first, Great location just try it and forget about the rat race and enjoy the great outdoors. Will be booking again for next year.
Great place to relax. Yurts are well furnished and when the log burner is a glow what more do you need The yurtery is fully equipped so all you need is your food and family. Try it you
