The parking area is a short walk from the yurt along a sloping gravel path.
All facilities are for your sole use for the duration of your stay. The bathroom and kitchen facilities have hot running water, there is an electric shower, and flushing toilet. You have the option of cooking outside on a quirky campfire / fireplace (see photos) or using the electric oven and hob in the outdoor shelter.
The yurt has a woodburner and we always source wood very locally. We have sourced all furniture and items in the yurt as sustainably as possible, with most items upcycled in some way. We recommend you bring your own bedding as this also reduces the environmental load.
We can provide bedding and towels for a one off fee of £20 but we recommend you bring your own if you can, as this reduces everyone's carbon footprint. Slippers are a good idea in the colder months and wellies or good waterproof walking boots are essential year round (we are close to Wales and it does rain quite a bit - resulting in MUD!). It gets very dark here at night - great for stargazing but you might want to bring a torch (we do have solar outdoor lights in some areas though).
The owner does not have a video of their glamping site.
The yurt itself is a very short walk away from the forest along forestry paths. You can walk or cycle into the Forest straight from the yurt and keep going for miles. We are around 20 minutes from the River Wye which is good for kayaking, and around 10 minutes drive from Minsterworth where you can get in the Severn to surf the Bore if the time is right. We are always happy to provide further information about local guides if you would like more information.
Please visit our booking partner for live prices and dates.
We offer fully flexible cancellation to accommodate you if local restrictions change or you are required to self isolate, but please keep us informed.
