Alpaca Yurt HolidaysFavourite
Enjoy a relaxing and peaceful holiday at Alpaca Yurt Holidays in our 16' luxury yurt. We're located in 8.5 acres on the edge of the Cotswolds surrounded by our 40-strong herd of gentle alpacas!
After dining on your private decking, spend warm evenings relaxing outside, perhaps with a glass of bubbly, watching the sun go down, whilst the alpacas graze and the crias race around and pronk comically in the paddocks!
On more chilly evenings, light the log burner and candles, snuggle down under the duvet in the double bed and gaze at the stars through the skylight.
Your private semi-tented kitchen area is equipped with everything for outdoor cooking, which tastes SO much better as you enjoy life ‘off-grid’!
We offer numerous other indulgences as extras payable on site ... freshly cooked full English breakfast delivered to your door, packed lunches, craft courses including rustic peg-loom weaving and felting, alpaca experiences to name but a few.
Our bathroom facilities were built in 2012 and are located in our new barn where there is also a fridge and wifi.
Let us know your expected time of arrival and we can be ready to meet you, transport your luggage to the yurt and have the log burner alight before you arrive!
