Peaceful, private yurt glamping in the heart of the Stamford Meadows
Stamford Meadows Glamping is tucked away in the heart of the meadows that is its namesake, its privacy ensured by the tall hazelwood trees that line it. This means that when you sink into its wood-burning hot tub, tilt your head back, and close your eyes, you can hear the local church’s bells ringing, or a train passing by, or the chirrups of the abundant local wildlife — yet no one knows you’re here. This is your own private area of solitude, a place for you and your loved ones to escape to for a while, with everything you need right on your doorstep.
Husband-and-wife team Amelia and Yogi landed on the idea for the site after Amelia’s sister held a “mini-festival” in her back garden, prompting the hosts to invest in a yurt and share the land they’ve enjoyed for years. They’ve certainly replicated that concept here, albeit without the mud-sodden clothes and uncomfortable night’s sleep, given how all of your necessities are but a stone’s throw away. Head out into the meadows straight from the site, take a short walk up the road to get into Stamford town centre, or enjoy a pint at a selection of locals that are each a stone’s throw away.
But if you’re looking to remain all but completely motionless during your stay — which is firmly possible as Amelia and Yogi even offer to pick guests up from the local train station — you can enjoy plenty of on-site R&R thanks to the alternative therapies offered by your hosts and local holistic practitioners. Yogi’s a GP with a history in acupuncture, providing sessions for visitors for an extra charge, while Amelia — a solicitor by trade — took a break from law to dive into the world of holistic therapy. As such, the couple know plenty of experts in the field of reflexology, remedial massage, aromatherapy, and more, who each visit the site to help guests reach their place of peace. Suffice to say, it’s all but guaranteed that you’ll leave this secret spot well-rested.

An excellent short getaway. As we have two children (almost both are teenagers) we really wanted to explore camping options. Yet, we "were not there yet", so glamping was a perfect opportunity to prepare for such an experience, apart from all the fantastic amenities - hot tub, kitchen, electricity, wi-fi, indoor bathroom and shower. For me, personally, it was a recreational activity - the way I like it. Loved it and will recommend it to friends.

Luxe glamping in gorgeous Stamford
Absolutely perfect stay for our 10th anniversary. I wouldn’t have changed anything even the weather was on our side! The whole compound is perfect. The yurt is comfortable, the kitchen and covered dining area is fully equipped, the bbq and fire pit was wonderful for cooking on and sitting around in the evening with a glass of wine. The hot tub was amazing - clean, warm and so comfortable. The beautiful Stamford meadows was wonderful for a run and a walk, Stamford in easy reach with lovely shops and restaurants. Warm shower and easy to use compost loo we’re brilliant. Amelia and Yogi were so welcoming and friendly. We had a lovely chat with them over a glass of wine on our first night. Nothing was too much for them to sort out and their advice on activities and things to do was spot on. Would absolutely book again! May already be planning our next trip…!

I loved the location, right next to a meadow, and through it walking distance into the town. Host's couldn't be better, friendly, thoughtful and had thought of everything.

Absolutely stunning place and the hosts were extremely helpful, nothing they wouldn't do. We liked the fact that you had privacy and the electronic gates kept your vehicle safe. I would highly recommend this place and will come back again.

Amelia and Yogi welcome you to a rural yurt retreat with a luxurious hot tub in the heart of Stamford Meadows. They will offer insider information on the best places to visit in Stamford and offer guides on the most beautiful walks across the meadows.
Guests will enjoy use of Stamford Meadows Glamping all year round, together with their own private wood fired hot tub.
Our two beautifully handcrafted yurts are a perfect retreat for all seasons; cosy and warm in the cooler months, fresh and airy in the summer. They are each ideal for 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults. Each yurt is in a private site with its own hot tub, kitchen, eco loo and firepit. If you book both yurts and the optional bell tent, the entire site is for your private use, sleeping up to 8 adults.
As part of the experience we also offer a range of holistic treatments, including reflexology and massages, on site. Please enquire when booking.
We are a dog friendly site.
Stamford Meadows Glamping provides a variety of holistic therapies on-site, carried out in a separate bell tent from trained practitioners and local GPs. Guests can sign up for acupuncture, reflexology, a Swedish body massage, aromatherapy, a remedial massage, Hopi ear candling, an Indian Head Massage, reiki, or reflexology for an additional charge — Stamford’s hosts do not take a commission from these practises.
As its name suggests, the actual Stamford Meadows are directly accessible from the site. These 30 acres of land contain wildflower walks, including the Vence Walk footpath that runs through the Meadows. Visitors can access the River Welland, where they can go fishing or even kayaking, within a two-minute walk from the site. The town of Stamford is only a 10-minute walk from the site.
Rutland Water is a 15-minute drive from the site, with this sprawling reservoir surrounded by 4,200 acres of land ideal for a local day out. Hire a bike from the local Rutland Cycling (0330 555 0080) and embark on the Rutland Water lap (23 miles), Peninsula trail (15 miles), or Family trail (8 miles). You can also go fishing here and book in a beginners’ fly fishing course, or even enjoy some watersports and hire kayaks, paddleboards, rowboats, and more.
