What is a Yurt?
Yurts are traditional circular dwellings from central Asia that have been in use for thousands of years. The traditional yurt is decorated in colourful materials, handmade rugs and carpets. Cool in the summer and warm in the winter the yurt itself is supported with solid wooden trellis walls and has at its centre, a crown or Tono (ornate 'roof wheel') to further strengthen the structure. Covered with a thick, watertight covering the yurt keeps you dry and warm in any weather.
We have two yurts each is 16ft in diameter and sleeps up to four people comfortably. There is a standard double futon and two single futons. We provide freshly laundered cotton sheets, pillow cases and feather duvets. We can provide an air bed and bedding for a fifth person if necessary.
Each yurt has it's own unique feel. You can also expect the following facilities;
- Wooden floors
- Thick colourful hand made Moroccan rugs
- Wood burning stoves
- Comfortable futons and bedding
