History of the Yurt
As Yurts are the traditional accommodation of herders they are designed to be quickly dismantled, moved and rebuilt in another place as the herder followed his flock in order to protect and care for them. It could take as little as an hour for herders to dismantle a traditional Yurt then be on his way to the next grazing spot
A Yurt may look small from outside, but do not be deceived – our Yurts can easily accommodate four people sleeping on a double bed and two single futon sofa beds plus all of the essentials including a vintage storage trunk, TV/DVD, cool box and hamper containing crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment.
Glamping Yurts are traditionally heated using a fire or small wood stove; whilst we supply a fire pit or chiminea outside for you to burn wood and maybe toast marshmallows on; you will be pleased to know that here in Dorset our Yurts are supplied with electric faux-stove heaters, so it's less effort and much safer than a logburner.
