Staying in a 'Lovely Yurt' is a magical experience. The roundness of the structure, the window to the starry sky through the crown, the wood burning stove to keep you warm and snug and the beautiful furnishings which create a sense of peace enhanced by the outside surroundings of woodland nature and animals.

Each yurt nestles in its own sunny, secluded clearing.Our 3 yurts are situated a short walk apart so that you cannot see one from another, allowing plenty of peace, privacy and freedom.

The natural resources of the woodland supply your basic needs from the stream fed hot shower to the solar powered lighting, keeping you in touch with nature without compromising on comfort.
