Glamping Yurts

Our Yurts are traditional Mongolian Yurts. They have been hand crafted in Mongolia and imported by Ulann Taij. These Yurts are the real thing, not a western copy; living and breathing structures that stretch back into the history of humankind. They are decorated in traditional Mongolian symbols and colours.

The yurt sleeps upto six people. There is a standard double bed and twin single beds. For the beds we provide pillows and duvets with freshly laundered cotton covers. Bedding and linen is provided for four people. please bring a carry mat and sleeping bag for additional guests.

The yurts have 5 layers of fabric and are hence very well insulated. Most yurts in the UK only have a single canvas layer and lose heat rapidly. Combined with our waist high wood burning stove /ovens and you will never be cold so long as you tend your fire. Weíve had people stay in the yurts all year round, even with half a foot of snow and everybody always says that they were toasty warm.

Drinking water is available from a tap less than 100m metres away. Each yurt comes with its own rolling water carrier. This water comes straight off the fells and undergoes a UV treatment and is the best tasting water you will ever get short of standing beneath a glacier. Experience nature at its finest and leave behind plastic bottled water. There is uni sex shower facilities and male & female toilets less then 300 metres away from your yurt that are cleaned daily.These were completed in 2011 and are tiled throughout and have underfloor heating and use solar and hydro electric energy. Not your usual camp site toilets.

“it is everything you hope for and more”

This is a truly unique site, it is everything you hope for and more, it has a genuine wild feel yet the amenities are better than you would find on most other sites.
The site is situated in perfect distance to some of the most dramatic landscapes in the Lake District but you donít even need to leave the site to enjoy incredible natural adventures such as the surrounding woodland and the waterfalls that pass through.
