About Our Yurts

 

There is something wonderful about sleeping in a Yurt …"the very shape of a circle provides us with a glimpse into the wholeness, unity and divine order of the universe." Michael Schneider 

 

On a clear night, one can lie in bed and gaze at the stars.
5 spacious, beautifully handcrafted Yurts nestle in the wildflower meadow surrounded by ancient trees and hedges.

The Yurts can take a max of 4 adults, or families of 2 adults and up to 4 children (under 16)

Each Yurt has a wooden table and chairs, parasol and BBQ

Inside, there is a cosy wood burning stove (a basket of wood with firelighters are provided, with additional at £5.50), traditional wooden blanket boxes, 2 extra thick mattress double bed futons, bedding and luxury 300 thread Egyptian cotton bed linen, a soft throw, cushions and 3 solar led lights.

This is combined with luxurious, environmentally friendly facilities with eco-underfloor heating and a lovely campfire.

The delightful, well equipped kitchen, has French doors opening out onto a patio overlooking the wildflower meadow. There is your own fridge, cupboards, cutlery, crockery and cafetiere etc in the kitchen for each Yurt. Eco washing-up liquid, cloths and tea towels are provided, as is olive oil, salt and pepper and sugar.

Our Ethos



The site is abundant with native flowers, grasses, herbs, ancient trees, hedges and wildlife, which we manage along organic ecologically sustainable principles.
Many of the organic vegetables, fruit, herbs and orchard trees are heirloom and open-pollinating varieties to encourage food and ecological sustainability and security. 
Plant based, environmentally friendly hand wash, cleaning products and eco paints and FSC loo paper are used
We have an environmentally friendly sewerage system
We use 100% renewable energy from Ovo Energy
Energy use has been reduced through high levels of floor, walls and ceiling insulation and well positioned double glazed windows and French doors for maximum daylighting
The facilities have underfloor heating, which requires 2 - 3 C less heating than conventional radiators.

Solar panels, LED and low energy lightbulbs and appliances are used

Low water use showers, taps and loos are installed
Rainwater collected and piped into the wildlife pond
Our waste is composted and recycled and we use reclaimed, recycled and FSC materials

Each yurt is heated with a wood burning stove. We use sustainable firewood from our own sources and when required always source wood locally. We have planted hazel for future coppicing. We also use Flamers natural firelighters, which are untreated, wax dipped fine wood shavings.

We work with local craftsmen and businesses, such as FowlerWeb, Hungry Sheep, Leading Light Electricals and  Brackenbury's of Suffolk who have made our lovely "safari" style covered eating area, with its fab "roll up" canvas walls 
Sustainable transport is encouraged through a booking discount of £10 per Yurt when Guests travel by public transport, cycle or foot
There is paperless online booking , payment and correspondence
As much as possible is purchased ethically, either organic, which maintains standards such as paying a living wage as part of the organic criteria, or companies and organizations which are Fair trade or part of the  ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative)
