Inside the fully-insulated yurt, guests will find an airy, colorful bedroom set on a wooden platform, illuminated by ample natural light and LED lighting, kept cozy by a locally handmade wood-burning stove, and filled with an eclectic ensemble of vintage furnishings. The latter includes a table with four chairs, a sofa, a wardrobe, and a king-size, four-poster, colonial Indian bed, which is dressed in luxurious linens. An additional twin-size bed is also available for groups containing a third guest. Other amenities include power points for charging devices and complimentary firewood.

Around the site, guests will find a wildflower meadow where, depending on the time of year, they may see cowslips, buttercups, orchids, and vetch, along with a variety of birds and butterflies. From the site, guests can see all the way to the Mendip Hills, Glastonbury Tor, and the Somerset Levels, hinting at excursions to come, while nearby footpaths and bridle paths extend into the surrounding countryside, providing opportunities for scenic walks, hikes, and horseback rides.
