Eco features

  • Biomass
  • Recycling
  • Sustainability
  • Upcycling

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.

What To Bring

  • Bedding
  • Bikes
  • Blankets
  • Duvets
  • Food & Drink
  • Rainwear
  • Sheets
  • Slippers
  • Torches
  • Towels
  • Warm Clothing
  • Wellies

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 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.
