I spent one night in the soon-to-be-famous Yurt at Mermaid's Secret. It was a quick getaway for my husband, myself and my teenage son and we had an absolutely fantastic time.
We were lucky to be there during the Pig Roast celebration which was an added treat as I had never experienced cooking a pig in a pit. It was totally delicious, but even better was all the fun we had...
Swimming in the refreshing Mermaid Pool in the river, playing games at the riverside bar (Giant Jenga, Liar's Dive & Cribbage to name a few) and basically just relaxing and enjoying ourselves.
We were there in February and the Yurt was delightfully cool at night (had to sleep with a duvet). The early morning light gently glowing through the canvas and the sound of the river rushing by made it a very peaceful and enjoyable experience. There is plenty of room in there - I had never luxury-camped before, so this was a great introduction. I especially liked the private bathroom & kitchen area in a cabin adjacent to the hut, which made dealing with the necessities of life very easy and convenient!
I hope to get back to Mermaid's Secret before too long and spend more time in the Yurt, watching the ducks stroll by during the day, star-gazing at night, and thoroughly enjoying myself at the Mermaid's Tale Bar & Restaurant in between!
Thanks Sam & Tim.
