- Luxury glamping yurts in the Mendip Hills, three miles from Cheddar
- Bristol, Wookey Hole and Weston-super-Mare within a half-hour drive
- Secluded woodland tents with kingsize bed and woodburning stove
Gorgeous rural surroundings outside, comfy and cosy setup inside – that’s the offer at Gurt Yurts, a peaceful glamping spot in the Mendip Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty about three miles from Cheddar.
These spacious and smart tents are set in a private corner of a wild camping site that’s been cultivated as a wildlife haven – that means that your nearest neighbours are likely to deer, foxes, owls, squirrels and shy badgers (although the rescue chickens may well wander over to check you out too…)
The area around the yurts is all about seclusion – it’s flanked by mature woodland that hides you from view for much of the year. To boost that away-from-it-all feeling, you’ll have a private wash house next to the yurt, with a hot shower and eco-friendly compost toilet. Other nods to luxury living are provided too, including a comfy brass bed, a woodburning stove, a firepit and a collection of lanterns and fairy lights.
Although you may well feel like you’re well away from everything while you’re cosied up in your yurt, it’s handy to note that in fact that’s not true. Rather pleasingly, there are several pubs within walking distance, and you can also walk all the way to Cheddar in about an hour and a half for shops, tea rooms and a good look around the gorge.

As you may well expect from an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are lots of places to get out for a walk or bike ride nearby. The craggy nature of this part of the world also means that you can have a go at climbing too. Cheddar Gorge (15 minutes’ drive) is perhaps the most famous local walking spot – and did you know there are caves to explore there too?
Even bigger caves on your mind? You’ll need to head to Wookey Hole (25 minutes), where the spectacular underground caverns are cleverly lit to highlight their most important features and you can follow up your subterranean adventure with a round of pirate golf, a circus show or a stroll through the fairy garden once back up at ground level.
Something different for your day out? Other options within a half-hour drive include meeting the beasts of Chew Valley Animal Park, playing on the sandy beach at Weston-super-Mare or city days in Bristol – perhaps taking the kids to We The Curious, visiting Bristol Zoo or climbing the rigging of the SS Great Britain.
