We stayed at Ivy Grange in September, just before my daughter started school, as a special treat.
Not only did we have the best weather, we had the best experience. All the fun of camping but moved up a gear.
We stayed in the Woodpecker Yurt, a beautifully decorated Yurt fully encompassing what I wanted for our first yurt experience and was not disappointed. The facilities on site were fantastic, from the bathrooms to the games room to the outside kitchen - which luckily we didn't need to use.
Our daughter loved the freedom she had in the field where the yurts are located and was able to enjoy this fully given that it was safe for her to run around in.
Both Nick and Kim were very welcoming and clearly passionate about their business and have done a fantastic job with what is already there. Looking forward to going back.
We visited both Southwold and Africa Alive - both great places to take small children and within short driving distance.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Choose one of our 4 elegant yurts (Barn Owl, Swallow, Lapwing, Yellowhammer) or lovely new Shepherd's Hut set in a 3 Acre meadow in idyllic countryside close to Southwold and RSPB Minsmere and on National Cycle Route 1. Each yurt and hut has its own bar-b-q, campfire, cooker and use of great facilities including our popular two-person Woodland Shower with plenty of hot water (as well as more conventional indoor showers and flushing loos!). Try out your pizza-making skills using our wood-fired pizza oven; take a spin around the quiet lanes on the bikes we have here; try one of our recommended country walks; pick blueberries or strawberries for breakfast from the fruit and veg troughs; take out a canoe on the river Waveney; try some wild swimming (we'll recommend our favourite spots!). We're close to a station and are happy to collect and offer a "green" discount for those coming by train (or bike) as well as bikes to borrow when you are here or storage if you bring your own. A perfect place to relax and unwind, whatever the weather, whatever your passions. ... more less
