Book the best authentic yurts for glamping: Sussex getaways in the UK

There are two yurts offered at this site for glamping. Sussex holidays await and below you’ll find each yurt detailed further.

Kushti Yurt: Built like a true traditional Mongolian yurt, the Kushti Yurt has painted poles inside and measures almost 6 meters in diameter. Up to four people can sleep comfortably in this yurt. Unlike a hotel or any other personality-less accommodation, this yurt is warm and inviting, decorated with ethnic textiles and furniture. It is especially cozy at night, when the whole yurt is filled with candlelight. There is a log burner in the middle of the yurt, which ensures a warm night even on the coldest of days. You’ll also find a double-ring camping stove inside the yurt, which is good if you’d like to cook your own meals. There is a fully equipped kitchen area with everything you might need, and there is also a fire pit. Outside you’ll find a barbecue for your use. For sleeping arrangements, there us one double futon that will come fully furnished with linens (a double duvet and cover, two pillows/cases and a blanket). There is also another small double futon that does not come furnished. If you’d like to request that the second futon be furnished, you can, for the additional cost of £14.50, or you can bring your own bedding.

Savannah Yurt: This yurt is 6 meters in diameter and constructed from ash and hazel. Up to five people can sleep comfortably in this yurt. It is buried a bit further back in the woodland, which provides a very tranquil and private atmosphere. Just outside the yurt, you’ll find a deck so you can enjoy being outside and feel the peace of the surrounding woodland. There is also a fire pit and barbecue located outside for your use. The inside of the yurt is decorated with cozy furniture and unique décor like sheepskin rugs, leopard print throws and a touch of Africa. There is a log burner on one side, which opens up the yurt and creates a very spacious room. There is also a double-ring camping stove, allowing you to cook your meals whenever you want. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you’ll need during your stay. There are two double futon sofas, and one comes fully furnished with bed linens (that means a double duvet and cover, two pillows and pillowcases, and a bed cover). There is also a single futon, but that one does not come furnished with bedding. You can request extra bedding for £14.50 per person, or you can simply bring your own bedding. You can also request a camping bed inside this yurt for an extra charge of £30.

There is a cafe on-site, in what was once a stable, where glampers can enjoy a hearty, home-cooked breakfast and may be tempted to buy some of the hosts' delicious homemade jams, jellies, chutneys, and honey that they have for sale. In addition the cafe provides delicious lunches, teas, and coffee for all the woodland crafts course attendees and during the spring & Christmas fairs.

The beauty of this glamping site is that it’s buried within ancient woodland. You couldn’t ask for a more unique location, and to match that, there are some very interesting activities offered right on site. You can arrange to have a holistic massage or to have a traditional tea party. Courses and workshops are also offered, with a ride range of topics. Some of those courses and workshops include beekeeping, woodworking, Shamanic ways, basket weaving, children's green woodworking, sourdough bread making, clay oven building, hurdle making, spoon carving and bowl carving. Be sure to inquire about the holistic massages to get a little slice of heaven and added relaxation.
