Located on the grounds of the Waterloo Cottage Farm, a family-run farm in Great Oxendon, you can find a delightful yurt for 2 that offers the perfect glamping experience, in the wild but without having to give up on any modern comforts... There is even a carbon-neutral wood-burning hot tub on site.

Puddleduck yurt is kept in a traditional design, but with all amenities. It is spacious and has picturesque views across the farm. Standing on a wooden platform it features a log burner, cosy king size bed and a roof window to watch the stars through. Decorated in a shabby chic style it has its own solar-powered hub to light the yurt (but candlelight is far more romantic).

Outside Puddleduck yurt you can discover a private BBQ with tools and basic kitchenette. It has its own private bathroom with hot water and eco-friendly toilets too.

There is a shared kitchen (there are 2 larger yurts on site too) which is well-equipped, including a kettle, toaster, hob, pans, crockery and cutlery, fridge and microwave. Everything is prepared for self-catering, and there are also special extras such as local food and drink hampers.

Most importantly, to make the stay perfect, guests have access to a hot tub where they can watch the stars at night. Logs for daily use are included in the stay.

The site is easily accessible, being just off the A508, a few miles away from the town of Market Harborough. The yurts are based on a working farm and guests have the opportunity to get to know the farm and to visit the vegetable garden, and the orchard. Regular events like food making courses and wine tastings are also held on site.  

When leaving the farm, the area also offers great opportunities for walking, cycling (Brampton Valley Way can be accessed from here) and other leisure activities. There is an award-winning farm shop and also plenty of eating out opportunities, like a welcoming local pub. Further, visits to Foxton Locks, Kilworth House, Deene Park, Rockingham Castle and surrounding fishing lakes are easy from here. The lovely town of Market Harborough is only 2 miles away and larger cities like Northampton and Leicester, with shops, museums and theatres are also within easy reach (15 and 20 miles).
