Sit back, take a deep breath and relax. Feel the warmth of the wood burning stove, look up and let your eye be drawn up the roof poles, past the Moroccan lantern and through the large skylight where you will see the stars twinkling in the night sky………endless possibilities await on the holiday that lies ahead you.
Our holidays are perfect for families, friends or couples looking to get away from it all.
Modeled on the ornate Turkmen Yurt and made in the U.K. from light coloured ash sourced from sustainable woodlands our Yurts are extremely strong and are capable of withstanding anything the British weather can throw at them. The outside cover is made from a thick water tight poly cotton canvas. High enough so you don’t have to bend down when walking around and set on a raised wooden tongue and groove floor come and enjoy a back to nature holiday without compromising on the usual luxuries you would expect from you holiday.
