Two yurts connected as one, privately sited overlooking the Tern Valley on an organic livestock farm in North Shropshire.
Spend a magical glamping holiday in our Shropshire-made yurts, privately situated on our 140 acre organic farm in North Shropshire’s Tern Valley.
We not only offer a landscape filled with wildlife and adventure, but as England’s first community owned farm, we have regular events and activities that can entertain the whole family (see website).
Our two interconnected yurts are perfect for a romantic hideaway or a family adventure. Complete with beds for up to 6 people (one double, bunk beds and a futon), wood burner, gas BBQ, bed linen and even a kitchen sink.
You have a private compost toilet onsite with access available to flushing toilets and indoor shower in our main building a few minutes walk away.
At the right time of year there is also an edible garden including marigolds, mint, gooseberries and damsons.
There is a small gas cool box to keep things fresh alongside the large gas BBQ with side burner, but no running water and nowhere to plug in your hair straighteners or toothbrush - this is a total 'off grid' experience!
Our yurts are insulated with sheep’s wool, have cotton sheets on the beds and decking to sit out and admire the views along the Tern Valley.
The farm is a child’s playground, they can see our pigs situated beside a small play area (Old tractor 'Betty' and the mud kitchen are the firm favourites!)
All ages can enjoy our free farm trails with plenty of fun elements for the kids to explore and bountiful wildlife for nature lovers.
Our yurts enable you to enjoy and feel part of nature with that little bit of extra comfort. Why not bring your telescope with you and watch the stars, or hire one of our bat detectors to listen to the calls as the bats fly overhead at night.
To add to the experience you have the farm shop for essentials featuring the best of Fordhall meat and local organic produce and Arthur’s Farm Kitchen for a delicious a cooked breakfast, Sunday roast, light lunch or just a freshly brewed coffee.
