Secret Garden Yurt - Monmouthshire, United Kingdom

Lower Gockett Farm

Suitable for children of all ages

Not suitable for pets

Children very welcome. Sorry no pets.

A yurt, two cabins and a beautiful walled garden in the heart of a working farm that makes its own cheese!

Arriving at Lower Gockett Farm, you’ll actually drive right up to the main farmyard, then pass through a secret gate to find a secluded, walled garden of your very own, full of bright flowers, apple trees and a hammock for sunny days. The Secret Garden Yurt looks right over to the rolling hills of Monmouthshire, although the more immediate view from the raised deck is of the sheep in the meadow below 

The yurt itself is modern and uncluttered, designed to be bright and airy with round windows that let in plenty of light. Connected by smart gravel pathways, a fully-equipped kitchen and dining cabin is in the bottom corner of the garden (or cook yourself a stew over the fire pit), and you can just help yourself to any salad or herbs you need from the edible border outside. The other cabin, tucked away at the back of the garden, houses a modern shower room with a view across the garden, and both cabins are built of timber from the farm woodland.

The Wye Valley is a fantastic place to explore, whether you want to head up to Symond’s Yat for some canoeing, over to Tintern Abbey for a spot of history, or just follow the footpaths around the beautiful grasslands and woodlands of Lower Gockett Farm.

Our guests say...

Stayed for 3 days and two nights. Didn't want to do much: escape from the pressures of work by reading, sleeping and reconnecting with nature. Everything about the stay was much more then we expected. we sighed when we entered the secret garden and didn't stop until we had to leave. The bathroom, the kitchen, the firepit were all much better then the photos suggest. And the Yurt was the best bedroom I've ever stayed in. And then there was the view, the sounds, the sun, the endless supply of logs.....I'll stop now because I'm getting sad!

What a beautiful place to stay. Peaceful, wonderful views, immaculately clean and cosy. We were made up with the welcome pack of cider, eggs, bread, butter and tea and coffee. Fresh cut flowers everywhere was such a lovely touch. We were greeted by Joe the owner who was polite and friendly. The Yurt itself was so comfy and was lovely opening the door in the morning looking out to the fields with sheep and ducks.

We had the most wonderful stay in this perfect spot. EMily was very welcoming and the yurt was clean and well set up. The hot shower, flushing loo, and well equipped kitchen, made it extra special. Definitely Glamping!

Jocelyn

Absolutely fantastic! Beautiful place, tranquil, private, very clean facilities and brilliant for young kids in the "secret garden"

We had the most wonderful time at the Secret Garden Yurt! My boyfriend and I arrived late on Friday night and we were met by the very friendly Joe who showed us around - there's the yurt itself plus two other cabins (one is a kitchen and one is a bathroom). The kitchen had some local cider plus homemade cheese from the farm, eggs from the farm and baked bread - such a lovely gesture. We woke up in the morning to a view over the farm and in the distance the Monmouthshire hills. We spent our days walking around the farm and the surrounding area, meeting their friendly animals (horses, cats, dog...) and in the evening we lit the outdoor fire pit and even cooked our dinner on it. The yurt has its own stove and so it was toasty and warm despite the cold weather. I highly recommend this place for a romantic weekend away or just for some beautiful countryside and a breath of fresh air. We are certainly going to see into booking it again in the future.

The most pertfect and magical getaway from the rest of the world. Excellent facilities and location, a real treasure.

11/10/2016

Emily

A lovely relaxing stay in the Welsh countryside. We loved the escape from reality and having dinner by the fire whilst looking out over the hills was lovely.

24/09/2016

Lyndsey

This is a really beautiful place, very relaxing, private and peaceful. Joe was very welcoming, and the yurt surprisingly spacious. We would definitely recommend you arrive with a few days worth of food and then not leave!

Shirley

We stayed for three wonderful, peaceful nights in this little corner of tranquillity. We were made to feel very welcome and were given a fantastic welcome hamper packed with local produce. The facilities are superb, the location is amazing. There are fields and woodland to explore and Monmouth is only a short drive away when we needed provisions. We and our 2 children loved it!

27/08/2016

Donna

Beautiful and relaxing break. Made to feel very welcome and enjoyed the quietness of the farm.

03/07/2016

Laura

One word- Magical! We had the most incredible holiday in the yurt. The location, ambiance and experience was amazing. We lit the fire in the yurt morning and night, went for lovely walks on the farm and star gazed in the evening. We loved toasting marshmellows on the camp fire outside, and absolutely relaxing in the countryside. Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend away.

24/06/2016

Monique

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful two night break at the secret garden, it was so relaxing I really didn't want to leave. We are now thinking of a return visit with our children. We especially enjoyed cooking over the open fire and eating al fresco. It was such a romantic break cuddling up in the night and sitting watching the sun go down.

Rachel

Wonderful. A great location with excellent facilities.

29/10/2015

Scott

we had a wonderful stay at the secret garden, Emily and Joe were both really welcoming. The Yurt and cabins were all lovely and very well equipped. We were blessed with good weather so we were able to make the most of the beautiful surroundings. The welcome hamper was lovely and the cheese (made on the farm) absolutely delicious!

2nd leg of our honeymoon, a wonderful welcome of provisions from Emily and Joe, beautiful facilities and stunning views in an idyllic location

14/07/2015

James & Sarah

This was a really lovely place to spend and week. The Yurt was light and spacious and its location was beautiful. The Secret Garden was perfect and very private but close to the low key activity of the farm yard with its pecking hens and friendly dogs. We watched the sheep being sheared and enjoyed the evening visit to the field we over looked by the little band of geese. There was a flock of sheep, a few cows, woodland and beyond that a beautiful flowering meadow. We came intending to walk sections of the Wye Valley but actually just really enjoyed walks out from the Yurt. This was our first experience of glamping and the facilities in the Secret Garden were spot on, with luxury's that made the week comfortable (fab hot shower) without undermining the 'camping' experience. We had such a wonderful week we booked a second visit before the first was even over. Can't wait.

22/06/2015

Gillian

We had an amazing time! Thoroughly enjoyed the stay! Loved having bbqs on the open fire every evening and tending to the wood burner in the yurt Great facilities and lovely welcome pack with goodies :)

12/06/2015

Stephanie

We loved everything! It was our first camping experience as a family and it easily exceeded all our expectations.

29/05/2015

Louise

Wonderful off-the-beaten track location. The highlight was how clever it all is – the cosy yurt with wood burner, the civilised kitchen, the bathroom. For someone who's allergic to camping, this was perfect. Also loved the view and walking in the woods – saw two deer. Magical.

01/05/2015

M

what a wonderful setting and Joe has done a great job constructing the separate kitchen and bathroom buildings. Great attention to detail. The yurt easily slept our family of four and we had great fun exploring the surrounding area and walking through the 180 acres of fields, woods and stream belonging to the farm. It was also a great base to see the lovely Monmouth / Wye / Forest of Dean area...so much to do.....Highly recommended

"Wonderful trip was completely able to get away from the rat race. Loved the privacy. Finished to a high standard with good quality equipment. Lovely hosts, cheese very good"

20/10/2014

Gary

"We had a fantastic time.  Joe and Emily were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome yet didn't intrude on our private space. Joe took us on a tour of the farm and it was thoroughly enjoyed. Plus we cooked over an open fire - what more could we ask for?"

03/10/2014

Chris

"It was fantastic. Emily and Joe could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The setting was perfect. We loved the little extras like the welcome pack with their own cheese in it and being able to cook outside on an open fire. The stars at night were amazing and the woodburner in the yurt was great on the one chilly night we had. We loved the location, playing in our private garden, looking at the stars, relaxing in the yurt, the amazing hot shower, the local farm shop - Humble by Nature, sleeping with a view of the stars through the clear roof in the yurt. I could go on and on..... "

From owner Emily:

"Joe grew up on the farm, I have lived here for 12 years. We have 3 children and live on the farm with Joe's parents. Running a small farm is quite difficult and there needs to be some form of  diversification so over the last few years we have started a cheese making business where we milk our own sheep from the months of April – August and use a local organic

IMG_1907

cows milk the rest of year. We now want to open the farm to guests who can come and enjoy the farm and beautiful area of the Wye Valley."

Wildlife & Environment

The farm sits in the Wye Valley AONB so the whole area is very beautiful. Part of the woodland has SSSI status, and the RSPB regularly do studies on the farm to record the birds.

Getting there

Lower Gockett Farm, Lydart, Monmouth, Monmouthshire, NP25 4RL

Booking Terms

Canopy & Stars low price promise

 
Book with us in confidence knowing you won’t find that place cheaper elsewhere. All of the prices we display are set and matched by our Owners. (In this world of foreign currency, we do have to say 'subject to exchange rates' for some of our European places.)

What does ‘from price’ mean?

 
Our ‘from price’ is based on a four night stay in low season and designed to help you to compare different prices across our collection. Some of our Owners vary their nightly rates and check in days throughout the year, so it may differ from the rate quoted below the calendar. It is quite common (although by no means universal) for places to charge a little more in peak season or for shorter stays, to cover changeover costs. Consider booking longer stays during the cooler months if you’re looking for the lowest nightly rates.

Agency Terms & Conditions

Except where otherwise specified, we Sawday’s Canopy & Stars Ltd Company No 09088366 of Merchants House, Wapping Road, Bristol, BS1 4RW act only as an Agent in respect of all bookings we take and/or make on your behalf.

For all Bookings, your contract will be with the supplier of the Booking in question, and in most cases this will be the owner of the property you’ll be staying at (“Owner(s)”).

This booking confirmation will normally be sent out within 24 hours in the case of email and seven working days in the case of post, and will contain the details of your Booking and of payments made and due. If you have not received your booking confirmation within the specified time, please notify us as soon as possible by email (bookings@canopyandstars.co.uk). Please check your confirmation carefully and report any incorrect or incomplete information to us immediately.

We automatically take the balance payment using the same card as used to make the deposit payment. It is your reponsibility to advise us if we should use a different card and to contact us by telephone (0117 204 7830) to arrange for alternative payment method. If the balance payment does not successfully go through as there is a problem with your card, such as it expiring, then we will contact you to try and take alternative payment.

1.5 Except where otherwise advised or stated in the booking conditions of the Owner concerned, all monies you pay to us for a Booking will be held on behalf of the Owner(s) concerned.

 

1.6 Credit Card payments are processed via Alastair Sawday’s Publishing Co. Ltd who provide merchants services facilities to Sawday’s Canopy & Stars Ltd.

 

2. Cancellation and Amendment by You

 

2.1 Any cancellation or amendment request must be sent to us by email (bookings@canopyandstars.co.uk) and will be considered and responded to within one working day of receipt. You are also advised to confirm all changes to our Customer Services Department by calling 0117 204 7830. Please ensure that you have received written confirmation of any changes to your Booking prior to travel. Whilst we will always try to help, we cannot guarantee that such requests will be met.

 

2.2 Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the booking conditions of the Owner of your Arrangements. The Owner may charge the cancellation or amendment charges shown in their booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the Arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). The Owner may charge cancellation or amendment charges in accordance with its own booking conditions, however for the sake of convenience only, we have outlined the Owner’s charges at clause 2.3 and 2.4 below. Please note that these are the Owner’s own cancellation and amendments charges, not Canopy & Stars’, and therefore the Owner may vary their charges as they wish, without notice to us. The correct charges will be notified to you at the time of your cancellation or amendments.  

 

2.3 Owner’s General Cancellation Charges:

2.3.1 Cancellation by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable.

 

2.3.2 All monies paid for a holiday (deposit and balance) are non-refundable within 10 weeks before check in date.

 

2.3.3 Cancellation of any holiday after it has been paid in full and at a date 10 weeks or more in advance of your check in date, will result in forfeiture of your deposit (or an amount equivalent where one was not paid as the holiday was paid in full) and the balance being returned to you. 

 

2.3.4  Cancellation insurance is available but will be a third party arrangement and not involve Canopy & Stars or the Owner in any way.

 

2.4 Owner’s General Amendment Charges:

2.4.1 Alterations to your Booking can only be made more than 10 weeks prior to the check in date, after which time alterations will be treated as cancellation. All alterations are subject to availability and may incur a £30 adminstration fee.

 

2.4.2 Differences in the total amount payable resulting from alterations will be refunded to you in the case of a decrease in price and paid by you in the case of increases in price.

 

Special note: Generally Owners will charge the above cancellation and amendment charges, however we must stress that these are a guide only and charges may differ from those shown here depending on the Owner. The exact charges will be notified to you by the Owner at the time of cancellation and/or can be found in the Owner’s own booking conditions which are available from the Owner on request.

 

3. Changes and Cancellations by the Owner

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the Owner needs to make a significant change to your confirmed Arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the Owner in relation to any alternative Booking offered by the Owner but we will have no further liability to you.

 

4. Complaints

Because the contract for your Booking is between you and the Owner, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. In the event that you have any complaint about your stay, please notify the Owner as soon as possible. If you don’t follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the Owner to investigate and resolve your complaint and so make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Delays may also mean that amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced. Whether or not your complaint is dealt with satisfactorily, please also contact us as we appreciate all feedback. It’s important to us and the Owner to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay or if anything could have been improved.

 

5. Pricing

Canopy & Stars reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time on behalf of the Owner. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices.Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur.

 

6. Information & Accuracy

The information and prices shown on this website are varied from time to time and may change between the time you first view a property and make a Booking. You should check that all the details are as you expect prior to making a Booking. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties (including the features and extras available) may be incorrectly described and/or priced. If we discover this is the case after you have made a Booking, we reserve the right to contact you with details of the correct information and/or pricing and will give you the option to:

(1) proceed with the Booking based on the correct information and/or pricing, which may require the payment of an additional amount by you;

OR

(2) subject to availability, change your booking dates to dates when the pricing can be honoured ad so no additional charge to you. In the event that a lower price can be offered for alternative dates then the difference would be refunded;

OR

(3) cancel the Booking. If we do not receive your instructions within 5 days of contacting you, we reserve the right to cancel your Booking without liability to you.

 

7. Our Responsibility for your Booking

Your contract is with the Owner and its booking conditions apply. As Agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the Booking. Our responsibilities are limited to making the Booking in accordance with your instructions and acting properly in accordance with our legal duties as an Agent. We accept no responsibility for any information about the Booking that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your Booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the Booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.

 

8. Pets

Not all properties accept pets. If you wish to take your pet on holiday, please advise us before booking and we can check whether pets are accepted at the property. You must obtain the prior consent of the Owner before taking any pets to the property. A nightly charge may be made by the Owner for each pet and additional terms may apply.

 

9. VAT

Many of the Owners of properties in the Canopy & Stars portfolio are not registered for VAT in which case no tax is payable. Where VAT is payable, the tax is included in the advertised holiday rental price.

 

10. Visa, passport and health requirements.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the Arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the Owner of the Booking, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before the commencement of your holiday.

 

11. Insurance

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. Please read your policy details and take them with you on holiday.

 

12. Special requests

If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the Owner, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.

 

13. Group Bookings

Not all Owners accept Bookings for a single sex group (for example, a stag or hen party). Guests wanting to make such a Booking should check with us beforehand to enable us to check whether the Owner is prepared to accept the Booking. We will then advise you accordingly. In event that an Owner does not accept this type of Booking then it is with regret, that the Booking may be cancelled and cancellation fees may apply. It is the Guest’s responsibility to enquire with Canopy & Stars and/or check on our website beforehand to make sure that this type of booking is permitted.

 

14. Maximum Numbers

Please note that except by prior arrangement confirmed in writing, only the number of persons specified on a booking confirmation may occupy  a property. Most owners reserve the right to refuse admittance or revoke a booking if this condition is not observed and you are unlikely to receive any refund.

 

15. Your Responsibilities

Please note that you have a contract with the Owner of the property. As such you are under a responsibility to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner whilst staying at the property with due respect to the Owner, the Property and other guests and their property. You are responsible for informing the Owner of any losses or damage to the property as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable to pay the Owner for any losses or damage to the property caused by you or a member of your party (except reasonable wear and tear). Some Owners will also require damage deposits. You must also leave the property by the check-out time specified on your booking. If any guest behaves inappropriately or improperly (of which the Owner will be the final judge on their Property), or illegally, the Owner reserves the right to ask the guest and their party (at their discretion) to leave the Property before the end of the holiday period and/or refuse any future bookings from you.  Any refund for so doing will be at the entire discretion of the Owner. In addition, the Owner reserves the right to sue the guest for any loss, damage or injury caused to the Owner, the Property or to other guests and/or their property. As agent, we will have no liability to you in these circumstances.
