The Teasel Yurts

This park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Yurt glamping experience on the edge of the Cotswolds
  • Less than a mile from the local pub; 10 minutes' drive from Stroud
  • Covered outdoor kitchen, spacious decking area and excellent views

Located on the side of gorgeous Selsley Common, The Teasel Yurts have a spacious decking area that looks out over the Severn Vale and Stroud Hills – a most impressive view indeed.

Inside, the accommodation (which can sleep up to a maximum of five) comes fully furnished, with both bed linen and towels provided. There's a woodburning stove in the unit to keep things cosy, plus a covered outdoor kitchen with a gas burner, barbecue/firepit, sink and coolbox. The yurt has no electricity but there is a solarhub to power the lights and to charge phones.

The accommodation is within easy walking distance of the award-winning Bell Inn pub in Selsley, and there's a supermarket five minutes' drive away. This Gloucestershire glamping site is also an easy two miles from Stroud, an attractive market town with a Saturday farmers' market, an artisan/street food market and an ever-popular selection of great cafés, pubs and restaurants.

This hassle-free alternative to traditional pitch-your-own camping is set on the western edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and as such has easy access to all sorts of walks, bike rides and other rural outings. This spot is also an excellent base for city day trips to Cheltenham (30 minutes), Bristol (40 minutes) and Bath (50 minutes).

    Area, views, the location..everything on this stay was fantastic.
    Host gave us lots of info and things to do for surrounding areas, as we had very hot weather the host has gone a sun sheet so a part of the decking area was covered.
    Bell inn pub is a 15min walk away, lovely pub with great food.
    The yurt was tidy, well kept and very well decorated.
    I can not fault anything from our stay, would highly recommend and will look to return in the future

    We liked everything! There were excellent eco friendly facilities. The yurt was fantastic, clean and well presented. We loved the outdoor kitchen. The toilet and shower were also great. The location was secluded and quiet. The host provided great information both about the accomodation and things to do in the area. We spent sunny afternoons drinking gin and tonic on the decking taking in the amazing views and made full use of the firepit in the evenings. This is a fantastic site, we will definately be booking again.

    I’ve stayed in numerous Yurts over the years and Bear’s set up is the best I’ve stayed in. Immaculate inside and excellent outside set up. The decking with the views toward the Severn estuary and towards the Cotswolds was a particular treat. The location was good practically for my young family, although not typically remote this was not to the detriment of quality of our stay. It was peaceful enough during the evenings inside and out. My youngest loved the hammock too! Provisions inside and outside the yurt were more than I expected, which was a nice touch.

This site was a great place to experience the outdoors …09/04/2021

    This site was a great place to experience the outdoors without having to bring all the paraphernalia normally associated with camping. All the equipment was provided and included plates, pots, cutlery, barbecue, bedding, stove, etc and of course the yurt - which was huge. Having your own toilet and shower was a bonus.

    Me and the kids loved it - the playing field with footbal nets was perfect.

    Disliked: 

    Only a couple of negative points about this site: the distance from the car park to the yurt was quite long and uneven - wouldn't be suitable for wheelchair users or the elderly; there was quite a lot of traffic noise from what must have been a nearby busy road - didn't feel like being in the wilderness.

    But these didn't affect the enjoyment of our stay.

    The views were outstanding and the location was great. The kitchen was well equipped and having our own bathroom was brilliant. The yurt was very comfortable and well maintained. We had a wonderful stay and my daughter especially enjoyed the fire pit and hammock. Bear was great with the recommendations of things to do in the area and we can highly recommend the Bell Inn for a lovely meal out.

A great value, beautifully set, comfortable and rather magical yurt.08/08/2021

    Teasel Yurt is beautifully set on the edge of the hill looking west to get the most of the incredible sunsets. It is well equipped and very comfortable. The woodburner provides amble heat on chilly nights.
    It is a short walk up the hill from the parking space but we liked how it felt separate and private (we were the only visitors while we were there).
    The solar lighting is perfect and the whole atmosphere just 'right'.
    The bathroom block is great- hot showers on demand and the open air kitchen has everything you might need. There is no fridge but the cold box is large and with shops being nearby this was not an issue.
    It is great value.
    We loved our stay.
