Our Yurt retreat is situated in central Canterbury, just 15 minutes walk from the centre, 10 minutes drive to the beach and a short walk into the countryside - perfect!

It is located in a private area with some truly exciting facilities!

These include a large outdoor bath, "Tardis" toilet, BBQ, chimenea for outdoor evening fires, and of course a luxurious authentic yurt made in Mongolia. Kitted out with internet, Google Home, log burner and mod cons for that truly luxurious stay!

The space
This includes a large outdoor bath with hot and cold water, plenty of room for two to enjoy a long soak whilst watching the sun set and drinking a glass of your favourite tipple.

The Yurt is designed for people looking for a quiet break with nature whilst also being able to enjoy a city break! You can come on your own, as a couple or with your children (we can cater for 2-3 children, please email us first). It is not really for groups though, as this is designed as a peaceful retreat.

When it comes to eating, there is a BBQ and, being in the centre of town, many takeaway options are available to you and can be delivered though Just Eat, Deliveroo, etc. You can also store a small amount of food and drink in the fridge provided.

The yurt has mod cons too and includes Google Home for music, news, switching lights on and off. There is fast broadband too, but no TV as we wanted to create a retreat from idle TV, however you can always bring a tablet or something if you want to watch a film of an evening!

For your call of nature, we have created a "Tardis" toilet! With fantastic interior design, it makes the most of what is a glamping toilet experience as it has a modern cassette toilet and gravity-fed sink (this is a camping experience after all!)

When it comes to warmth, well the yurt is very warm and well insulated. However, if you get cold, the bed has a snuggly double heated blanket and when it starts to get really cold, there is a camping stove log burner, that soon makes the place very toasty. Also, outdoors is a chimenea, so you can snuggle up on a rug and while away the hours watching the fire crackle under the stars.

Come and stay for a day, or a week, it is entirely up to you. Natalie and myself (Pete) are always on hand to assist with your needs, living on site, so there in a pinch. We look forward to meeting you and giving you a stay you will remember fondly forever!

Guest access
You have your own private space that is screened off from the main property, giving you privacy and good sized area. Your space includes an outdoor dining area for up to 4, the 5 meter yurt, outdoor bath and toilet with sink. the pace is lit at night with Festoon nights for the ultimate glamping feeling! Indoor log stove and outdoor chimnea are there for you to use as ell.

Other things to note
We do allow friendly/well behaved dogs to visit however we do charge a little extra (£15) on top of the standard cleaning fee (£30) due to the increased cleaning needed after.

We obviously ask that any mess made by your dog is cleaned up 😊

We are situated just far enough from town that you are out of the hubbub. The Yurt retreat is in a very green space and there are lots of birds tweeting and making you feel like you have truly escaped the city. There is such a lovely vibe here and even the walk into town is along a tranquil river. There is just so much to do here, you could easily stay a week and still have lots to do! Of course you are still in a city, so there are the usual sounds around you of traffic, people, trains, etc, but by and large, when you get "home" from a busy visit into town, you can relax and unwind and feel a million miles away from society!
