The yurt was amazing, the owners were very helpfull and friendly and made us very welcome.
The hot tub was so cool, we were there in Febuary when it snowed and it was fantastic.
I would highly recommend the place, it was in a beautiful setting, warm, cosy and very out of the ordinary.
An outstanding experience.

The owners could not have been more helpful, we arrived early due to the November nights & were shown everything.We could not have been more comfortable and the yurt was very warm & cosy, with all that we needed. It was very peaceful in a lovely location, and the local shop & coffee shop were 5 minutes away. The local pub also served great meals. It was a great place just to unwind & escape to.
A very enjoyable and relaxing holiday
