Wine Lovers' Break

We're very excited to announce our brand new Wine Lovers' Break! We've teamed up with our friends at Valley Farm Vineyards and the Black Dog Deli in Walberswick to create an amazing break for anyone who loves (or would just like to know a bit more about) wine!  Valley Farm Vineyards have just received a Gold Award for their Madeleine Angevine 2015 white wine (awarded by the UK Vineyards Association) and this is your opportunity to try the wine, speak to the makers and experience the delights of their rural vineyard, set on the rolling slopes of idyllic Suffolk countryside. 

To make a day of it, hop on the bikes we have here, pedal along the quiet country lanes (though drtiving is also allowed) and take a tour of the vineyard with one of the owners.  Then pick your spot amongst the vines, lay down your picnic blanket and enjoy a glass of the Gold Award winning Madeleine Angevine 2015 whilst you unpack your picnic hamper of local produce (including the award-winning Baron Bigod local cheese!) courtesy of our friends at Black Dog Deli.  When you are sated, wend your way back home (maybe having purchased a bottle or two from the gate - we can recommend their lovely Gloriana fizz, with which we recently celebrated a big birthday for Nick) to sip from your decking as you watch the sun go down.

The Break costs £75 (for 2) in addition to yurt accommodation and would make a fantastic present for the wine-lover in your life!  To book, simply tick the box when you make your accommodation booking - couldn't be simpler...

Enjoy this photo of Nick posing by the entrance to the vineyard, hoping he might get to "consumer test" the new Break....


June Full Moon Walk

What a fabulous Full Moon Walk we had on the summer solstice!  A lovely group of people and a wonderfully clear, warm, evening after a solid morning of heavy rain.  Walking from the Coastguard's Cottages on Dunwich Cliff Tops, we crossed the heath, cut through Minsmere (and had a look at the bird life from the Island Meare Hide) across to the Sluice and then back up the beach to the sight of the moon reflected on the water.  As we were celebrating not only the solstice but also Nick's 60th Birthday (on that day) we finished with a glass of Champagne and toasted life!  What could be better?  We can't guarantee Champagne every time, but we welcome our yurt guests to join us and we always have fun!  The July full moon is Tuesday 19th (and we still have space left in one yurt, Yellowhammer, if you are tempted!).


Spring Special Offer

Spring has gone to our heads and you can be the beneficiary!  From today, we're offering an extra night free when you book to stay 3 or more nights during the week (any time from Sunday night to Thursday night inclusive) right till the end of June.  We couldn't make it easier for you either - just go online and book for 4 or 5 nights and your free night will be calculated automatically.  Looking forward to seeing lots of you here soon!  And what lovely weather....


April's Full Moon Walk Saturday 23rd

Fancy walking by the light of the full moon?  Come and stay for the weekend of 22/23 April and join one of our full moon walks, always fun and a wonderful experience.  In April we're planning a walk along the Blyth Estuary, always a treat but especially so in spring, when we're hoping that the newly arrived nightingales will be serenading us as we walk.  The walk will be 5-6 miles, over fairly level terrain and suitable for anyone of reasonable fitness, you'll just need stout walking shoes and suitable clothing.  We set off at dusk and the walks generally take 3 hours, sometimes with the pub included.  We've still got some yurt availability and we'd love to welcome you along!  Just go online and book a yurt as normal and let us know that you'd like to join us - it couldn't be easier!
