“Luxury yurt glamping holidays set in an enchanting ancient woodland in the High Weald of West Sussex.”

Description of Forest Garden Shovelstrode

Forest Garden Shovelstrode, based in Ashurst Wood in Sussex, offers glamping holidays with a choice of two luxury yurts set in a piece of ancient woodland.

Both yurts are located in a woodland setting allowing guests to observe wildlife first hand and enter into a world of birdsong, peace and quiet.

The yurts are furnished in two different styles

Kushti: A traditional Mongolian yurt furnished with ethnic rugs, original Mongolian wall hangings, and Indian fabrics, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere.

This yurt can sleep a family of 4, including 1 small child, very comfortably.

Savannah: A more spacious feeling with light flooding in from the large crown wheel, the yurt is furnished with sheepskin rugs, cream futons and animal print rugs and throws. It is set further down in the woods and is very secluded with a large decked area outside where guests can really feel at one with nature.

It can sleep a family of five in comfort and style.

Both yurts are equipped with a log burning stove, a 2 ring gas stove and necessary cooking and eating facilities.

There is a shower block on site with a butler sink outside for washing up.

Forest Garden Shovelstrode also offers courses in woodland crafts such as basketry, green wood working, hurdle making, clay oven building, sour dough bread making and bee keeping to name but a few.

We welcome groups such as hen parties at Forest Garden Shovelstrode. Tailor made courses can be laid on and we can also offer traditional tea parties and holistic massage

The first stages of a forest garden have been planted set around a wildlife pond.
