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.
