There's nothing like a tough day at work to get you thinking about buying up your own patch of land, how many solar panels it'd take to get you off the grid, and whether there's room in the back garden for a British Friesian named Bessie. If the time has come to find pastures new, try country life on for size with a stay among Somerset's scenic greenery at an organic dairy farm—all courtesy of this week's Escape to the luxury, adults-only Yurt Retreat.

You'll stay in the cream of tented holiday havens located on the border of Somerset, Devon, and Dorset: two nights for two to four adults are just £129 (up to a £397 value). Alternatively, really milk your stay for all it's worth with the same package for four nights for £199 (up to a £397 value)—less than £50 each for four guests. Either way, you won't have to worry about pint-sized intruders impinging on your getaway as the retreat is exclusive to adults, and your yurt is one of just four on the property. Your 20-foot Mongolian structure comes complete with handmade bed, additional sofa bed, bed linen for one couple, mains electricity, wood burner, stove-top kettle, and outside fire pit. A private bathroom is housed just behind the yurt, and private shower access is included at The Lodge: a communal building with an expansive country kitchen and living room.

The next village, Hinton St George, is home to award-winning gastro-pub The Lord Poullett Arms, while the likes of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's Axminster River Cottage Canteen and Mark Hix's Lyme Regis Hix Oyster & Fish House are a short drive away.

Not to butter you up, but for inquiring minds, Crewkerne is home to the Bincombe Beeches Local Nature Reserve as well as plenty of supermarkets. Make a move out to Lyme Regis for stylish eateries, a microbrewery, and an art gallery inside a water mill, or take the short drive to the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast for stunning coastal scenes. West Bay and Bridport also offer vintage shopping and an independent cinema.

This Escape is for two to four people. Bed linen for one couple is included. Two-night stays are available with check-ins on a Monday or a Wednesday; four-night stays are available with Monday check-ins only. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge on

  • "Set within a farm on the Somerset/Devon border, and surrounded by fields and woodland in the shadow of a hill fort, it’s the sort of place where it’s hard not to feel the weight of the world slipping off you as soon as you arrive."
