Spend a magical holiday in our Shropshire-made Mongolian yurts. Privately situated on our 140 acre organic farm in North Shropshire’s Tern Valley. Fordhall not only offers a landscape filled with wildlife and adventure, but as England’s first community owned farm, we also have regular events and activities that can entertain the whole family (please see our website for up to date event details)
Our yurts are perfect for a romantic hideaway or a family adventure. Complete with compost toilet, camping shower, beds, wood burner, gas BBQ, bed linen and even a kitchen sink. At the right time of year there is also an edible garden including marigolds, mint, gooseberries, currants and damson trees - you won’t have to go far for that quick snack!
Our two yurts are interconnected, providing the perfect getaway for up to six people. One is used as the bedroom and the other the living space.
The wood burner can be used to heat the yurts, boil a kettle or cook an egg; all you need to do is get it going. Our yurts epitomise the glamping offer (glamorous camping). Whilst still providing you with the feeling of camping out with nature, we want you to feel spoilt and inspired. There is a solar powered cooler for example, but nowhere to plug in your hair straighteners or toothbrush!
Our yurts are insulated with sheep’s wool, have cotton sheets on the beds, decking to sit out and admire the views along the Tern Valley, and a book shelf stocked with everything you could ever want.
A holiday in our yurts is about enjoying and feeling part of nature, with that little bit of extra comfort. Plus you have the farm shop and Arthur’s Farm Kitchen not too far away for those essentials, such as a cooked breakfast, Sunday roast or pack of free range Gloucester Old Spot sausages!
Why not bring your telescope with you and watch the stars, or hire one of our bat detectors to listen to the calls as the bats fly overhead at night. Our yurts are here for you to enjoy.
We are open year round with prices ranging from £90 to £360 for weekly or weekend breaks.

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 make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
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.
