The Owner Says
A basket of logs for your wood-burning stove is included in the price (extra logs available at a small extra charge) as well as use of duvets, pillows and fresh bed linen. Our site has no electricity so we provide a lantern during your stay, which along with the woodburner, adds to the ambience of your holiday experience!
Our luxurious washroom and compost toilet is a short walk from your yurt and, though it looks rustic from the outside, step inside and you'll find a touch of luxury as we provide eco-friendly products, towels and warm running water, heated by solar panels or gas.
The site also has an outside kitchen under a parachute, equipped with crockery and cutlery so you don't have to bring too much with you for your holiday.
We recommend you bring:
- Candles (only allowed in the candle holders)
- Toothbrush & toothpaste
- Wellies or walking boots so you can explore the muddy countryside!
You can even pre-order your shopping from local producers through us – we can email you a list of available products for you to choose from, including meat, cheeses and chocolate, which will be waiting for you on arrival. We also have available some of our rare breed pork on our site, sausages and bacon from Gloucester Old Spots pigs!
