Dumfries and Galloway dark skies park is a stunning location to get away from it all. Based on our eco friendly off grid small holding, the yurt is solar powered and has a wood burning stove, shower room and composting toilet. The yurt has a double bed and three singles (all with down duvets) so sleeps 4 x1 or 1x2 and 3x1 we don't charge a cleaning fee, so what you see is what you pay!!
The chemical free, DIY hottub is very private and for the exclusive use of our guests.

The space
Galloway yurts is a solar powered traditional mongolian yurt situated in our meadow on our off grid sustainable small holding near Kirkcowan, south west Scotland. warm, private, comfortable and self contained, it is an ideal place to kick back and get back to nature.
The yurt has a gas hob and a well equipped cooking area (but no fridge!) , a wood burning stove and 12vt power for lighting and charging phones and tablets. One double bed and three bunks all made up and ready to go, there is a shower room with hot shower and composting toilet, also a barbecue and picnic bench for summer out side cooking and eating, and an outside fireplace for keeping warm whilst stargazing! the first load of wood is free during the winter months. and from spring to autumn can be purchased from us at £7 per sack (but please feel free to bring your own), please bring your own charcoal and torch.
The yurt has fantastic views all round and has an open aspect, perfect for viewing the night sky and watching the sunset, you may share the meadow with sheep and sometimes horses, if you want the horses out of the field this is not a problem we are happy to move them. There is plenty of space for kids to roam and a small stream behind the yurt is ideal for kids to splash around in and for keeping drinks cool.
The chemical free hottub (subject to water availability) is ideal after a day of walking in the galloway hills, mountain biking, local sightseeing or chilling out at the yurt. The tub is wood fired and you are responsible for starting and keeping the fire going, ( this generally takes about four hours) if you need a hand to get you started just ask.
As the hottub is wild water and chemical free we clean and refill it for each set of guests, for this and enough wood to heat it for the duration of your stay we charge £30.00.

please contact us to book the hottub and for more information
