We had a great opotunity to stay in a yurt for one night last week. We were invited to try out the experience by one of our owners. It was only one night but I came back feeling completely relaxed. For those of you that do not know what a Yurt is, its a large round tent double skinned which is used by nomads in central Asia. The structure comprises an angled assembly or latticework of pieces of wood or bamboo for walls, a door frame. Yurts have been a distinctive feature of life in Central Asia for at least three thousand years.
The Yurt we stayed in was in a self contained complex offering Eco living. The spacious bedrooms were contained in individual Yurts with a open stone built kitchen and shower room separate. If you enjoy outdoor living it is just the perfect place. A get away from it all experience with no TV and wifi available only in the comunal area.
The retreat offers services which include an onsite Honesty Shop and wine racks stocking a selection of locally produced wines. This supplements the delivery service of Local Farm Produce Grocery Boxes. Younger visitors will be amused not only by collecting eggs from the free-range hens and meeting Mollie, our resident donkey, but also by letting off steam in the mini adventure playground with a wooden “pirate” boat and sunken trampoline.
