Fantastic. We went as a group of 3 families and had the most amazing time. The yurts were roomy and the beds cosy and comfortable. The well stocked kitchen was the perfect place to get together in the evening and share some good belly laughs. The kids loved toasting marshmallows on an open fire, paddling in the river, games of... More

My girl friend booked us the Gypsy caravan for four nights. From the minute we arrived i knew it was special.... The caravan itself is literally 20ft from the Eden river (where beautiful wildlife and forests greet you every morning for breakfast). It has everything you need there, so no lugging lots of pots/pans and cutlery with you. It's perfect... More

We arrived on a boiling hot Friday and were wild-swimming in the river twenty feet from the caravan within 10 minutes. Absolute bliss. The host Steve could not have been more welcoming, showed us the site, let us know he was around should we need anything, and delivered our breakfast hamper of bacon, sausage, bread and beans first thing in...

Have spent one night in YURT and Gypsy caravan. Myself and six pals went to Drybeck Farm and shared the accommodation. Five in YURT and two in caravan, which was small but cosy and comfy. Very different from anything we have done before, especially having to use the compost loo!!!eek! But actually. Once you get over your first attack of... More

We visited last weekend, staying two nights in the Gypsy caravan and one night in the tourer. Drybeck farm was easy to find and we were greeted by Steve who showed us around and made us feel very welcome. Both the tourer and caravan were warm (especially when we mastered how to build a fire and got the wood burner... More

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary with a night in the old fashioned gypsy caravan, which we booked last minute. Communication via email was prompt and friendly. We were greeted warmly on arrival and given a tour of the site, all the while Steve (the owner) chatted to us in a relaxed manner and made us feel very welcome. The... More

What a wonderful place! We cannot recommend drybeck farm highly enough, it was the perfect setting with all we could have asked for and more, Paula and Steve were wonderful hosts and the yurt was so incredibly comfortable and snug, great place to escape to, we will definitely be back!!!

Drybeck farm is a stunning site, my husband and I visited April 2014 and stayed in the gypsy caravan for a long weekend. The weather may not of always been at its kindest to begin with, but Drybeck is set in the spectacular backdrop of Eden Valley, the River flowing past your front door, an abundance of wildlife, a pleasure...

following excellent reviews I decided to book a long weekend in the gypsy caravan for myself and my partner as a surprise birthday present and it was perfect. My partner had no idea where he was going but was blown away when we arrived! The caravan was right beside the river Eden on our own field. Inside the caravan the... More
