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

We are close to the lovely village of Bredfield, which has a great Community Village Shop , play ground and tennis courts (these can be booked via Angela Bridges 01394 384874)
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.
Solar panels, LED and low energy lightbulbs and appliances are used
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
