Each yurt is carefully located at the edge of its own secluded glade taking advantage of the sunny aspect, the valley views and the beauty of the ancient woodlands and flower rich hay meadows.
Relax with a glass or two on your balcony or go exploring on foot from your door perhaps down to the river where you might see Kingfishers and Otters or maybe to the local pub where you’ll definitely find some fine food and local ales.
Enjoy total privacy with your own terrace, canopy kitchen, fire-pit and compost toilet. For a truly romantic retreat try Sapperton Yurt that has its own double ended roll-top bath with views into the tree canopy.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Bird Watching: from the deck of your private woodland glade you might spot and you’ll certainly hear birds including woodpeckers, owls, buzzards, jays and if you’re lucky kestrels, tree creepers or nightingales.
Stargazing: Low levels of light pollution mean that the Milkyway is visible on clear nights around your campfire. Lie in bed and stargaze through the clear window in the roof of your yurt.
