A Swift Escape: The entrance to the yurt

General

  • Secluded luxury yurt in rural Essex, near Beaumont-cum-Moze
  • A 15-minute drive from Frinton-on-Sea; 25 minutes from Colchester
  • Kingsize bed, plus decking with two outdoor baths and gas barbecue

You and your other half + a couple of open-air rolltop tubs + a yurt = an excellent escapade to Essex.

All this is to be experienced at A Swift Escape, an adults-only site set in the far end of a paddock surrounded by fields and trees for a real private vibe (so hikers won’t stumble across you while you’re bathing…).

Got no other plans than to unwind while here? You’ll spend days taking alfresco dips and chilling out on your outdoor decking’s seating while sizzling up snacks on the gas barbecue. For a break without needing to lift a finger to feed yourselves, snacks, drinks and various food packages are also available to order.

The outdoor space is smashing, yes, but so is the yurt’s interior – it’s thoughtfully decorated and has a tea and coffee-making station plus a selection of books and board games. As evening draws in, lie back on the kingsize bed and stare up at the night sky through the stargazing rooftop. As well as the open-air tubs, the yurt has an outdoor bathroom unit with hot water, a shower, flushing toilet and Butler sink.

Trips can be as relaxing or as adventurous as you like at this splashy spot near the village of Beaumont-cum-Moze – restful roams at the coast are a 15-minute drive, while the buzz of Colchester is 25 minutes away.

Yurt farmland stay06/17/2022

    Beautiful surroundings, the Yurt its self was nice, the bath tubs on the decking a lovely touch, and the lay out of the Yurt was perfect.

    Downside for us was with how hot it was and the Yurt had no shade/fans. We couldn't be inside the Yurt and the decking area provided no shelter, perhaps a suggestion of some form of shade/fan.

    A few lights on the decking were out, and I had notified the owner other than this its a lovely peaceful place, that been said if the farmers aren't doing the fields like our arrival until gone 8/9pm at night, haha.

    We didn't get chance to experience this for all of our stay due to a family emergency led us to leave a day early which is a real shame but enjoyed the time we had there.

    Couldn't have asked for more. The owners literally have thought of everything. All we need to take was food and drinks. Beautiful little escape for a romantic getaway. The baths were amazing.. steaming hot as the evening cooled down. So romantic with the decking lights on and the sun going down. All the Comforts of a hotel but the great outdoors feeling of camping.. alfresco and drinks on the decking. Fire pit lit. Night's were a bit chilly so the Indoor log fire was so cosy. Needed to purchase extra fire wood.

    Everything! Everything about this stay was absolutely perfect and amazing. The bed was extremely comfortable and spacious- my husband and I could both starfish until our hearts were content! The baths outside on the deck were definitely my favourite part. We've discovered that there's nothing better than watching the sun go down whilst you soak in the tub next to each other. Even when the weather was cold and dreary, I would still climb in and admire the view surrounding us. There was a picnic area near the barbecue set-up that looked out onto the field and the road in the distance, and also a sofa with a table around the other side which was nice to sit on and relax before going to bed. One of the best things was the firepit- my husband loved being able to (safely) start a fire and sit around in the evenings. We even bought marshmallows to toast and hot chocolate. The shower was also extremely relaxing!

    We had the most perfect stay at the swift escape yurt for our anniversary it was amazing! The yurt itself was so cosy and quirky, and was so bright with the beautiful sky light. The views from the decking were so peaceful and beautiful, just looking out to the open fields and trees was very relaxing, and also very private to just chill out. There was a great selection of utensils and utilities such as a bbq, cutlery, plates, cups, bbq tools, a kettle and much more! Also Being less then 15 minutes away from the beach was a plus too so we had a trip there too. Our highlight was the outdoor baths filled with complimentary bubble bath and rose petals, it was so romantic with candles lit laying back with a glass of bubbly and the sun going down, then it was dark and looking up to see the stars, and even a couple of owls flying by it was beautiful.

    Disliked: 

    There was nothing we disliked about the yurt or our stay it was perfect! The only thing that could maybe be improved is a fan or ventilation as it did get quite hot in the yurt and maybe a fridge for food and drinks for people who are staying the whole weekend like we did or long stays.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your lovely comments - we are grateful for your feedback and we are constantly looking at ways to improve so we will take your points into consideration.
We are so glad you have a wonderful time and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
