A yurt (or Gers) is a portable tents, traditionally from the nomadic tribes of Mongolia.
Turkoman yurts differ from the Mongolian variety, in that they have arched roof poles to carry the weight of the tent instead of central poles, creating more usable space. Entering a yurt is like entering a temple of the earth. Its simple proportions and lightness transport you back in time.
Our Turkoman style yurt is made of coppiced sweet chestnut poles for the trellis walls and ash for the roof ribs, all crafted and handmade by the owners.
A separate wooden cabin, a few steps away comprising of a luxurious shower, compost loo and wash basin. Next door is a kitchen and outside eating area with BBQ on the deck, which links everything up.
