Our luxury yurts are situated on the sunny side of the glade and are extremely spacious for a family or group stay. We have a 22ft super sized yurt called Stargazer, and as its name suggests has a large skylight for you to see the night sky through. It also has a king size bed and 4 single beds in the form of a daybeds and pull out single trundle beds. We also have 4 luxury 18ft yurts which sleep 4 people (a camp bed with bedding can be hired to sleep one extra person in each yurt if required). Our 18ft yurts have a crown cover to pull over at night if you do not want to stargaze.
Our yurts have a real sense of space and light inside with windows and skylights to light the interior in the day. All our yurts have proper wooden framed doors and our 18ft yurts also unusually have large wooden windows with shutters too. New this year, each yurt has a handy en suite toilet shed.
Our stylish large luxury yurts have king sized beds and single daybeds with pull out single mattress trundles, sleeping from 4-5 people.
All our yurts are felt insulated to keep you cosy in the night and cool in the day.
