The Owner Says

Our holiday yurt and its adjoining shepherds hut are for your exclusive use, there is no sharing the site with other holiday makers. Fitted out to the highest standard to give you the ultimate glamping holiday, they are beautifully finished with all the luxuries any self-respecting glamper could desire.

Our holiday yurt is spacious (a massive 19 ft diameter) and sleeps two adults in an antique French double bed, and comfortably accommodates a further two people in 2 singles, and comes complete with its own shepherds hut.

The shepherds hut provides guests with their own private fully equipped kitchen with fridge and cooker, and your own bathroom facilities, inc hot shower, wc, etc.

The Yurt is a genuine Mongolian yurt with proper felt lining to keep you cool in summer and warm on chilly nights.

It has its own wood burning stove, and you can cook al fresco on the barbecue in the woodland area.

We provide you with bed linen, so all you need to bring is a torch and supplies.

Car parking is provided near to the yurt, so you dont have to carry stuff long distances.
