- Private yurt in a Sussex countryside apple orchard
- A 10-minute drive from Battle and 20 from Hastings
- Handcrafted wooden furniture, hemlock floor and handmade double bed
Apple Tree Yurts is a flourishing new venture in scenic east Sussex countryside, 20 minutes north of the coast.
The yurt is in its own private and peaceful area, in a pretty apple orchard. It's been constructed using excellent quality materials and furnished in a rustic style: much of the furniture has been handcrafted from ash wood and there are soft sheepskins, plump cushions and a luxurious handmade double bed.
The yurt is also equipped with a wood burner, gas-powered hob and cooking utensils. There's plenty of space for recreational pursuits, as well as a barbecue and picnic bench.
The yurt is on a solid foundation with a polished hemlock floor inside. The ash roof is constructed from 60 individual wooden poles connected to a central crown wheel, which is in turn supported by posts to the floor. Cotton, canvas and a chestnut lattice provide insulation and protection.

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.
