About this listing
"A truly magical experience" is how some of our guests have described staying in one of our Yurts. Situated right in the heart of the Lake District on the National Trust Campsite at the head of the Great Langdale Valley, you couldn't ask for a more idyllic location. Surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery the Lake District has to offer, come and experience 'living in the round' for yourselves and enjoy a unique holiday in a unique environment.
Long Valley Yurts offer the perfect combination of back-to-nature living, without compromising on all the usual luxuries you would wish for on your holiday. Spacious with comfortable beds, warm duvets, cosy wood burning stoves, solar lighting and fairy lights this really is luxury camping or ‘Glamping’ as we like to call it! Ideal for families and friends, come and experience a holiday with a difference, one you never forget.
The yurts provide and an excellent base for fell walking, rock climbing, mountain biking or just relaxing. Overlooked by the Langdale Pikes and with views towards Crinkle Crags and Bowfell, this site is a spectacular location for exploring this dramatic area of the Lake District.
What is a Yurt?
Yurts are traditional circular dwellings from central Asia that have been in use for thousands of years. The traditional yurt is decorated in colourful materials, handmade rugs and carpets. Cool in the summer and warm in the winter the yurt itself is supported with solid wooden trellis walls and has at its centre, a crown or Tono (ornate 'roof wheel') to further strengthen the structure. Covered with a thick, watertight covering the yurt keeps you dry and warm in any weather.
We have three yurts each is 18ft in diameter and sleeps up to six people comfortably. There is a standard double bed and four single beds. We provide freshly laundered cotton sheets, pillow cases and duvets.

We have tried to provide everything you might need to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible. However there are a few things that you will need to bring from home.
• We do not provide towels.
• The Yurts do not have any refrigeration system we advise you bring a cool box with cool bricks. The campsite shop will re-freeze your bricks for you for a small charge.
In addition we advise you bring suitable cloths and footwear for all conditions, the Lake District can be somewhat un-predictable.
