Reader Treats

Normally, the people behind Nesta Camping would be organising festivals for thousands. This year they’ve opened up their own grounds – the beautiful Critchill Manor Estate just outside super cool Frome – as a pop up glamping site from Fri June 25 to Tues 31 August. With luxury yurts and a converted vintage horsebox, wood-fired hot tub, yoga and holistLook what just happened: a luxury yurt glamping site just popped up on a country estate near Frome – and we’ve got a 2-night family stay to give away!Look what just happened: a luxury yurt glamping site just popped up on a country estate near Frome – and we’ve got a 2-night family stay to give away!ic therapies, live music, stuff for kids, delicious food and drink (natch), it’s just the place to rest, recuperate and get back to nature – and we’ve nabbed a 2-night family stay, worth £450,  for one of you lucky people. Want to take a tour?

Sleep in a luxury handmade yurt (sleeping 1-6) with wooden beds and furniture, rugs, electricity or solar power and shared eco-friendly compost toilets, hot showers and a pamper parlour with hair dryers and lighted mirrors.

There’s wholesome, local and sustainably-sourced food and drinks (including cocktails, wines and local beers) in a bistro and lounge with a double decker bus.

Breakfast is served till late (or in your yurt). There are daily changing lunch and dinner menus (Cajun oyster mushroom with chimichurri, superfood salad, pakora or butternut squash arancini anyone?), a smokery at weekends and barista coffee, organic teas, artisan cakes and pastries and ice cream all day, every day.

Entertainment and ambient music folk singers, fire-pit serenades, lounge-bar beats and acoustic sessions at weekends. All sorts of health and wellbeing sessions with guest teachers. Loads of stuff for the kids – arts and crafts, interactive quizzes and games, a weekend Wild Tribe Forest School –  or they can roam free in the spacious grounds.

Leaving you to treat yourself to a yoga session, massage, a snooze in the yurt or a lazy hour or so in the hot tub with a glass of chilled prosecco  *sigh*

Once you’re ensconced, we don’t reckon you’ll want to leave but if you can bear to tear yourselves away, back in the real world there’s wild swimming, Frome’s independent shops, restaurants and bars, and the World Heritage City of Bath – all just minutes away.

Enter our prize draw to win the 2-night stay for four people in a luxury yurt, with a glass of fizz in the hot tub – or if you don’t want to leave it to chance,  you can book yourself in right now.
