Would you Adam and Eve it if we said this site is a little piece of Lake District paradise? We think you might: Drybeck Farm has luxury glamping on a riverside in the heavenly Eden Valley; handcrafted yurts with handpicked vintage furniture; farm stock to buy for breakfast hampers, a wood-fired hot tub and even the option to be picked up from the station by horse and carriage – Arnie-like, you might be beck.

This is a site for those intrepid glampers who like to get back to nature, but don’t see why that means they shouldn’t be able to have a luxury tailor-made holiday or a hot shower (with shower gel, shampoo and conditioner included, ta very much). It’s also one for the environmentally conscious with quirky compost loos, shower water recycled to use in the garden, and even the aforementioned lotions in the shower all firmly eco-friendly. The traditional Mongolian yurts are handcrafted by a local company and have a woodburning stove for added toastiness.

You’ll be sharing this tiny and traditional farm site with four-legged residents including rare breed cows, pigs and horses, as well as the two-legged egg providers for your breakfast hamper: home-produced sausages and dry-cured bacon included as well as the fresh free range eggs. The farm shop also sells basic supplies for additional frying up over the campfire, or take a wander down the road among the spectacular scenery to sample some real ale and pub grub at one of the village inns in nearby Armathwaite.

Finally surfaced from your yurt/the hot tub and ready to explore off site? Paula and the Drybeck Farm team have sheaves of info on what to do locally; they can also arrange bike hire for guests, and push you in the right direction for some of the area’s prettiest pedals.
