Kite Hill Yurts is set on a hillside in Powys with magnificent views of the Black Mountains and surrounding countryside. Hovering above the Wye Valley, situated on the long distance Wye Valley Walk and adjoining a 5,000-acre moorland it is the perfect getaway for walkers, wildlife enthusiasts and those who enjoy the great outdoors.
Within easy travelling distance of the market towns of Builth Wells, Hay-on-Wye, Llandrindod Wells, Brecon and the Brecon Beacons National Park there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. Whichever direction you choose to strike out in you can be assured it will be the scenic route!
Our traditional Mongolian yurts are situated in a hay meadow on our 11-acre smallholding. Each yurt sleeps up to 5 people so is ideal for individuals, couples or small families although we do take 'chilled out' adult groups if both yurts are booked. With log-burners for extra cosiness, comfy beds and each with their own kitchenette, firepit and barbecue, you will soon be settling in, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful mid-Wales countryside.
Sharing our smallholding are alpacas (who were here long before we were!), ducks, bees and three friendly cats. We are working towards self-sufficiency and so far we have converted the farmhouse to wood-fired heating and solar power. We have also begun planting a coppice and an edible forest garden which surround the yurt field and will provide us with fuel and food in the future.
We aim to take a low-impact, sustainable approach where possible and this extends to our yurt site as much as any other part of the smallholding.
We look forward to welcoming you! Kate and Dominic.

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.
