Yurt Dining area
Yurt provides the perfect space for 'glamping' or
comfortable camping. Yurts are a magical and peaceful
space to be in and sleep in, fun for children, and

The yurt has a queen size double bed, and a single
mattress/sofa. We can also provide an extra single
mattress should you need it and a large tent which
can be pitched close to the yurt, creating more

bath towels for everyone staying. (We recommend
you bring your own towels for swimming.)
Almost all of the furniture in the yurt has been
hand made using wood from our land.
