we stayed at drybeck farm on the 16/03/2015 in a yurt for one night, what a gorgeous place to stay. The setting is beautiful and the yurt is great. We had never experienced glamping before and were both a little nervous, but we are now both converts. Steve was more than helpful, and was available if we needed anything. The... More

Steve and I were sorry to hear your trip was disappointing. We endeavour to deal quickly with any issues that may arise. Unfortunately at the beginning of the season we do get some teething problems as with the water supply. The water supply booster pump failed and as soon as I became aware of it I explained the problem. Unfortunately... More

We have just got back from a weekend at Drybeck farm. Weve both come back refreshed from a lovely stay in the country. We stayed in the Gypsy caravan which was nice and cosy, very warm with the wood burning stove going. We saw heron's on the river and had a relaxing time in the wood fueled hot tub. Steve... More

My daughter and I together with my twin sister went on an adventure to Drybeck farm looking for authentic childhood dreams to come alive staying in the gypsy caravan there. Anyone who read the book Kizi as a child needs to experience this magical setting. The attention to detail was not lost on us we lit the fire and my... More

Fabulous farm and utterly beautiful lodgings in the most exquisite setting. We were there for one night only in October and it couldn't have been more perfect. Steve the owner was so helpful and friendly, heating the hot tub up for us to enjoy under the stars with a bottle of bubbles. The yurt was a great size and lovely... More

We had a weekend in a Yurt and it was fantastic. The accommodation facilities and area was outstanding. The owners did all they could to make this a truly memorable stay. The home produced food was delicious. Only one complaint our stay was not long enough. We have already book again.

We have recently returned from our first trip to Drybeck farm (4th-6th Oct), and we totally loved it!! We stayed in the Gypsy Caravan, which was a little slice of vintage heaven, set right next the River Eden, a beautiful spot. It was incredibly cosy and snug. In fact with the wood burning stove going at night, it was a... More

Just returned home after our first 2 night stay in a yurt - we had a fantastic time, was so comfortable and made very homely. The designated kitchen had everything you could need and the breakfast hampers were perfect. Me and my two children had lots of giggles in the hot tub and enjoyed the views of the stars from...
