If you’re looking for the yurt camp featured on ITV1’s “Little England” last night, you’ve come to the right place.

Or, nearly.

What you’ve actually found is the blog of the whole story, from a few months after we had the idea to “sell the house and buy a field”, to a very warm mid-November, where we’ve been fielding emails from people we haven’t seen or heard from in a very long time and getting ready for the cold weather that’s due to arrive in the next few days.

If you want to visit the website RIGHT NOW, to look at some pictures of the yurts, read a bit about smallholding, hear a bit about the surrounding area, find out how much it costs to stay, and see the availability calendar, click here.

But if you’ve got some time and want to see what it was really like to get off the hamster wheel and set up a yurt camp in rural France, pull up a coffee and start at the beginning. It takes a while to read the blog, but I did it the other day and it’s quite a story (even if I do write so myself).

You can always visit the website later.

One more thing, the yurts and us will be on “Little England” again in a few weeks. I hope the producer is as kind to us then as he was last night. He’s called Simon. Not the Simon you’ll read about in the blog. But Simon none the less.
