Traditional Mongolian yurt in stunning quiet position overlooking uninhabited valleys. A very romantic spot. Min 3 day let with changeovers on Monday or Friday. Located on fascinating small organic farm/ little community. Be reclusive or sociable!
This hand painted, traditional Mongolian yurt has a wonderfully secluded feel in its position at the head of three uninhabited valleys. 19' diameter, furnished with a (made up) double and single bed. 2 small mattresses can be pulled out from under the beds for children - for which you will need to bring bedding. A basket of wood is provided for the woodburner inside - further baskets can be bought for £8 each. There is a pile of wood we have collected that you can saw up for your fire pit. Tea lights are provided for lighting. (There is no electricity) It is in its own little enclosure with a fire pit which you can cook over and where you can sit to unwind at the end of the day. Cooking and dining in a wonderfully converted old school bus with kitted out kitchen. At the end of this structure are a solar shower and compost loo. On cloudy days you can heat the shower with a log burner. There are also flush loos in the farmyard and a bath in the house - under a glass roof so you can bathe under the stars. Friendly and unique - find seclusion, or become involved in the busy life of the small community with volunteers from all over the world. Traditional 17th century farmhouse, chapel. Hand milked jersey cows, cheesemaking, winemaking. Pick your own fresh food. 100 acre farm with sheep, woodlands, courses in prehistoric arts.

I'm an organic farmer, with a passion for wildlife, woods, art, people. I love the outdoor and creative life that growing food and rebuilding a once derelict traditional farm offers. From the farm we run an archaeological company and run courses in prehistoric arts. We practise traditional crafts like stone carving, basket making.
