Within ice-cream licking distance of the family-friendly visitor centre, Cheshire Farm Yurts is a glamping hideout with a quirky location.
Inside, the traditional Mongolian-style structures feature a luxurious double bed and two sofas, creating either a romantic hideaway for two, or, fold out the sofas, and the space becomes a perfect family unit. There’s electricity and all the wares you need for cooking – including a kettle, microwave, hob and grill, while private toilet and shower facilities mean this really is camping with some homely comforts.
Despite it’s location however, the yurts are not a part of the ice-cream farm site, owned and managed, rather, by Marv and Anna Roden who live a few doors down and give the whole place a refreshingly uncommercial feel.
Guests find themselves camped out, as if in a large and welcoming garden, somewhere between a campsite and self-catering accommodation. The nearest village, Tattenhall, is perfect for an easy wander – taking in the Victorian village hall, the red sandstone church with its grey-green slate roof and, of course, an essential stop in the local pub, The Letters Inn – while the charming city of Chester is just a 20 minute drive away.
