What to Bring

The essentials for your yurt holiday:

  • Bedding: The beds in our yurts are covered with brightly coloured throws for decorative purposes. However, you will need to bring your own bedding for warmth and comfort. Sleeping bags are ideal, as they pack up smaller when travelling, but duvets are also perfect. The cushions inside the yurts are not designed for sleeping on so bringing your pillows is also strongly advised.
  • Towels: You’ll need these for the shower. If you wish to shower in the main house, there is a hair dryer as well. We only use natural soaps and shampoos as the water is leached into our flower beds. Please remember bring your own eco friendly soaps and shampoos if you wish.
  • Torches: At least one good powerful torch is essential as it can be incredibly dark at night and trying to make your way across the yurt field at night without one can be very difficult.
  • Charcoal: Each yurt has it’s own charcoal BBQ outside, so please bring your own charcoal if you wish to use these. Of course, this can be bought locally so you don’t actually need to bring it with you.

The nice to haves:

  • Slippers: For wearing inside the yurts. Outdoor footwear is not permitted inside the yurts, so bringing some slippers, or other easy to get on and off footwear will make everything much more comfortable especially during the winter months.
  • Camping Lanterns: The yurts are lit by solar-powered fairy lights and tea-light lanterns which create a wonderfully relaxing environment. We do provide some battery powered camping lanterns in each of the yurts for when additional lighting is required, but it is a good idea if you already have some of your own to bring them along especially for using outside the yurt around the campfire.
  • Insect repellent: We do have mosquitoes and other bugs especially during the early morning and late dusk. In the great outdoors some people are more prone than others to getting bitten. So please do bring some insect repellent if you think you may need it.
  • Citronella candles: As above, but these can make a great difference to an evening round the campfire.
