We stayed in the gypsy ( travellers)style caravan, and it was absolutely perfect for 2 of us plus my dog.. he was so settled... the area is stunning, peaceful and the perfect place to unwind.. the only problem we had was coming home. The showers were amazing, and the kitchen facilities for the caravan were spot on... Thank you Drybeck... More

We have just had a short break at Drybeck in a Yurt. The facilities are fantastic and the owners are very hospitable. The location is amazing - right on the banks of the river. Me, my husband, 3 daughters and dog had a truly fabulous time and will definitely be returning.

We were in a group at Drybeck Farm using both Yurts the weekend of the 20th March. Both Yurts are beautiful inside, comfortable, plenty of blankets and duvets. (A bit chilly because the skies were so clear and we were unskilled at lighting the log-burners). Steve was incredibly friendly and helpful with everything. The breakfast hamper was packed full of...

I booked a weekend in a yurt at Drybeck Farm as a surprise for my boyfriend’s birthday, not really knowing what to expect. I’m not your typical camper but was hugely impressed but the photos and rave reviews - and I’m glad to say I wasn’t disappointed! On arrival we were met by the owner, Steve, and given a tour...

We stayed in the vintage caravan the weekend of the 22nd March for three nights. We'd stayed here previously a couple of years ago, in the gypsy caravan and had a wonderful time. Glad to say the experience was repeated. I love Drybeck farm, there's something magical about the place. Both times, even though it's been March, we've had amazing... More

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

We recently stayed in the gypsy caravan witch we were really looking forward to, we were shown were we were staying and how things work witch was great. Until we wanted to wash our hands or shower witch we couldn't do as the water wasn't working for the full two nights we were there. The hamper was ok but not... 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
