Stargazing Yurts Rested on Nature's Doorstep in Cumbria, England
"I’d meant to drop you a line to say how pleased we were with the Yurt and how much we enjoyed the holiday, but 4 days back at work and it escaped me …"
There are several yurts to choose from, as they come in various sizes. All yurts come with large windows to let in plenty of light and allow fresh air to flow through. Kitchenettes with cooking utensils mean glampers can make amazing meals. A proper table and chairs is provided, as glampers won't always want to sit on a futon, as comfortable as they are! Should glampers wish to dine outdoors, there is a BBQ grill available for the perfect summer coookout.
The first yurt is a pet-friendly yurt that can sleep up to five guests. It is a 16ft yurt that has a 9ft double bedroom pod attached. With the bedroom insulated and lined, and the main living area lined and with a 5kw woodburner - guests will be nice and cozy during their holiday. There is a double futon and one cushion bed for additional guests, and not forgetting a cozy corner for man´s best friend!
The second and thirs yurt sleep five or six guests and has a double bed, a double futon, a single futon, and a cushion bed. It has a slightly different design; the hosts have put two of them together! They have a small yurt, containing the double bed, connected onto a larger living room yurt.
The fourth sleeps four or five glampers, and has two double futons and a cushion bed for the fifth guest. It is made out of bamboo, creating a very light and airy feel.
The final yurt sleeps four on two double futons, and is also pet friendly. It is a ‘traditional’ Yurt, with steam bent walls and roof poles with an oak ring which has been bent to form the crown. All the wood has been locally coppiced and the techniques used are exactly those that are used in the yurts native land.
There is a communal toilet and shower block which is cleaned every day. There are plug sockets for using hair dryer's / straighteners etc. There is also a shop on site, open every day that sells treats as well as essentials. The Adventure playground is very popular with the kids and becomes a great place for them to hang out and meet up with each other.
With great lake access, guests can get onto the Lake with their own canoes, kayaks, boats or into the lake for a swim at their leisure - there is no charge for this.
