Our Covid 19 Response

We have taken special measures to insure your absolute safety and hygiene. All of all our yurts, tipis and bell tents are very well spaced out already. The closest being 18 meters away from the neighboring tent. Each tent has their own toilet, hand wash basin and two ring gas stove. You also have your own private BBQ, fire pit and hammock just outside your tent. So no facilities will be shared with other guests. If the ovens are needed in the kitchen you can book your own time slot so you may have the kitchen to yourselves. After which we will clean it down thoroughly. There will be plenty of hand sanitiser to use. You are in the open air here with no chance of breathing any second hand air. There are 12 acres of space here to enjoy and relax in where you can roam with ease and safety. Its our aim to offer you some much needed respite from this national emergence time. Julia and family.

Frequently Asked Questions?

What is the difference between a tipi and a yurt?

Beside the obvious difference in the shape of a tipi verses a yurt, the main difference is the way the heat source works. The yurts have a closed cotton canvas with the flue of the wood burner coming out of the top section of the roof. Whereas the tipi has Smoke Flaps which you need to open with a wooden pole,(demos are given on arrival). Once open you can then light your wood burner inside your tipi. Once you have finished with the fire you then close the Smoke Flaps.

Size wise the tipis have the have surface area as Little Owl Yurt and Valley Yurt, and sleep the same number of people, 4-5. Both the tipis and yurts have same bed arrangements and interiors. Due to the low nature of the tipi doors, older guests need to bend down to enter the tipi. We recommend the yurts for families with very young children in the colder months as the yurts offer a more consistent heat.
