The Yurts

The Afghani Yurt

The Afghani yurt is an original Turkmen yurt from Afghanistan. It is made from coppiced willow and has a deep red ceiling that makes it feel cosy and intimate. It has great views up towards the craggy Libar as well as down the meadow and across the valley.

The Monglian Yurt

The Mongolian yurt is a typical handpainted yurt from Mongolia with traditional motifs in green, blue and gold on a burnt orange background. It is lined with felt and has a decorative inner lining and outer cover. It is set in a lovely secluded clearing in the corks which gives it complete privacy.


The Jaipur Yurt

The Jaipur yurt is made from coppiced chestnut and is light and airy with dappled light filtering down through the cork trees. It is named after its striking Rajasthani bedspread and other Indian textiles.

The Safari Yurt

The Safari yurt is made of dark sawn timber giving it a more modern feel. It is decorated with textiles from North Africa, Turkey and central Asia, in rich earthy tones. It is at the top end of the land with a lovely view down the meadow and across to the hills beyond.

The Maimani Yurt

The Maimani yurt sits under the giant cork trees and is made from coppiced chestnut. It is larger than the other yurts and is named after the kilim from the village of Maimani in Afghanistan that is the centre piece of the yurt. The interior has a calm, serene feeling, but the view up towards the Libar is dramatic.

The Bathrooms

The yurts all have private bathrooms next door with hot showers and handpainted terracotta basins, and composting loos with fantastic views! These work very efficiently with microbes and enzymes that speed up the breakdown process. They have a simple ventilation system to remove odours!
