Our yurt

IMAG0611_1_1_1

Yurts have been mobile homes for the nomadic peoples of central Asia for thousands of years, ours is a ‘bent wood’ yurt (or oba) typical of the steppes of Turkestan. Our yurt was hand-crafted in 2015 on a farm near Glastonbury in Somerset, England. The roof poles (uni), the crown (tono), and the trellis walls (khana) are made from ash wood coppiced sustainably from the woodlands of Somerset.

The door is solid oak. The covers are made from heavy-duty canvas.

Our yurt has a unique, bright airy atmosphere  offering you all the comfort of a house (full sized bed, mattresses, duvets) while camping in a meadow very close to the  Kobbeå river and the Stavehøl waterfall. The yurt has a diameter of 4.88 metres (16 feet) and can comfortably sleep 4. To see where each the yurt is located, please take a look at our site map.

The yurt contains a double bed, 2 single futon beds which make comfy chairs during the day and a chest to store your clothes and bedding. Light floods into the yurt through its roof window (tono) and through its lockable hand-crafted oak door. In the meadow outside is a wooden table and benches with a fire ring for camp fires and barbecues.

The garden features a playhouse and sandpit.

Our cosy communal ‘atelier’ has 2 new bathrooms, kitchen and cosy lounge in our half timbered house which is a very short walk away.

The yurt has a wood burning stove to keep you warm on cool evenings and you can even boil your kettle on it!
