We chose Meon Springs because of the type of camping (Glamping), reviews, and the great price discount. It's fair to say that most of the reviews cover things well. Four day week break.
We went as a family (2 adults, 3 children) for a relaxing getaway, during the week. We got just that. We turned up later than hoped and we were met by a lady who helped us to settle in and even supplied some bread and margarine since we didn't have time to get to the shops. The welcoming of all those we met during the week was wonderful. It was never invasive, just always a pleasure. The youngest also loved the dogs of the owners (Sammy and Lucy).
The Yurt and Yurtery:
The Halnaker was the yurt we were given. It was clean and could not be faulted. We were supplied with sachets of coffee and tea, cutlery, electric hotplate, with a kettle to boot. A woodburner takes centre stage and is lovely to look at when a fire is burning. There is a guard around the woodburner, and if you're worried about young fingers touching it then there is an electric heater you can use instead. The back door opens up onto decking with a picnic table, a BBQ grill, and a campfire spot very close by (Wood is supplied at no extra charge). Though all this pales into insignificance at the stunning scenery that you are greeted with.
The Yurtery has everything you could need to cook with (and wash-up with), with books and kids toys to keep them away from you while cooking. Well maintained to a high standard. Toilets/showers are very close by and are again lovely to use, with hot water not being an issue.
The scenery and areas you can visit locally are picturesque. The downs are something you can just stroll across at a leisurely pace. Both West and East Meon are lovely to look at when you're just used to a busy town life and want something refreshing and traditional. I'd make a tip to check out the butchers in West Meon (Supreme Champion pork sausages and Pork Breakfast sausages Mmmm...), who has a lovely shop and uses recipes handed down over many years. The Fly fishery is located just down the road from the Yurt village and if the weather had been a tad better then I'd have kicked back and relaxed there.
You can also go for a visit to see how the cows get milked at certain times of the day (5pm was when we went) and the kids came back with things to do and had learnt something without even realising it, lol.
Clean site with all cooking items you really need. superb 'getaway' location and picturesque villages, all mixed in with welcoming and hospitable hosts. No hesitation, we plan to go back there in the future.
Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!
Longish review, just we've had a great time as a family and wanted to try to cover the main things. Oh, almost forgot, there's a fridge for each Yurt in the Yurtery.
