Yurt Camp Facilities

“This is not the camping I remember from my childhood - its so much better. The location is breathtaking and the yurt is spectacular. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck and having goldfinches napping by so closely and not to mention the unbelievable view of the milky way.” Pete and Caroline

Once you turn off the main road onto the track you soon leave the tarmac and houses behind and find yourself rolling down into the heart of the farm. Arriving in the small car park, and after a phone call to either Tim or Naomi, one of us will be there to welcome you and show you to your yurt. All the yurts are an easy walk from the car, and there are wheel barrows for carrying bulky supplies.

In the reception area there is a freezer( to keep ice packs cold, there are separate chill boxes in the yurts),and a fridge to keep things cool and facilities for recharging phones etc.. There is also a washing machine (detergent supplied) and spin dryer. There is a small barbecue outside each yurt and we can usually provide, organic lamb burgers, and sausages , as well as eggs from our hens, salad and veg. when available.

Our Bluebell Wood YurtHeating and Cooking

The wood burning stoves in all the yurts are set to one side leaving the middle of the yurts free and the view through the wheel unspoiled by a flue.The stoves warm the yurts up in minutes and have flat tops good for cooking on or you can use the small gas cooker beside it.

Our Bluebell Wood YurtThere are plenty of cooking utensils, pots and pans, and crocks and cutlery. Food storage in pine dressers and on shelves hanging from the trellis. There is a chill box in each yurt and facility for keeping ice packs cold. There are also barbecues with each yurt.

There is an outside sink for washing up and there are washing up bowls with Ecover detergents, scourers, dishcloths and handtowels provided in each yurt.

Sleeping

The 16ft Green Man has a double bed and room for a cot. The 18ft Oak Wood has one double bed and one double futon.

The 20ft Ash Field yurt and pod has one king size bed, one double futon, and one single futon. which serve as sofas during the day and beds at night. Extra blankets are available in each yurt.The 20ft Ash Field yurt also has a 10ft yurtpod attached to it. Fully felted it gives the kids their own insulated space and sleeping area (double futon) without being detached from the mother yurt.

A travel cot can be supplied for no extra charge.

Linen

Bed linen can be provided for £20 per double or £14 per single, includes duvet, sheet and 2 pillows (per person) or you can bring your own bedding. We use Ocean Breeze, a local linen service who use the latest green technology in their laundry. Bath towels can also be booked for £6pp.

Bathroom Yurt

The bathroom yurt is a short stroll away from each yurt and is on a pine wooden base with rugs on the floor. The specially designed Coromandel wood burning water heater provides hot water through a spout straight into the roll top bath which stands in the middle of the yurt. It may take a little longer, but lying in the bath with the wood burner crackling away you can look up and see the trees and sky above you and time doesn’t really matter.

The bathroom yurt and the solar shower is shared between the three yurts.

Solar Shower:

The solar shower is built in the same style as our ig-loos (see below). It is glazed on one side so while it is still totally private there is a great view out onto a hedgerow of moss, ferns and twisted hawthorn branches. Water is heated by the sun or by an immersion heater for days when the sun doesn't shine.

 

Toilets: Each yurt has its own compost toilet nearby, housed in one our home designed Ig-loos with a big, beautiful beech wood seat.

 

"We leave totally charmed by our days here with delicious memories to take away.We all love the loo and think it should be called “the throne”, so beautiful it is. I’ve relished every new part of being here from the lack of mirrors and light switches to washing up in such a beautiful kitchen(what a view) and reading stories until the candles burnt out, we never looked at a clock. Since slowing down, I’ve got that childish feeling of being excited all the time and not knowing why!” Lucy, April

Solar power

We have a solar photovoltaic panel for the Oak Wood yurt and another in the 20ft Ash Field Yurt. It provides low level lighting but useful for the darker ends of the season and for preparing food in the evening.

Our Bluebell Wood YurtCosy Campfires

All of our yurts have outside fire pits adjacent to them. Campfires are encouraged and two big bags of firewood is supplied on arrival.
