Cornish yurt Holidays - new for 2010

All this snowy weather has provided a much needed if not entirely welcome opportunity to catch up on the office work. We’ve been making a few changes to the website so that it gives more information about the place and what we do here. The new Cornish Yurt Holidays website, which will run along side the Yurtworks site will be up and running by the middle of February but in the meantime…

The new booking calender has already made it much easier for people to see what is available and the price of each week.

The gallery page has more photos of the farm, the yurts and what to see around and about.

We are staying with just three yurts so that we retain the peace and seclusion of the place. However we are making a few improvements to ensure that it’s a yurt experience visitors remember for all the right reasons.

We are making new double beds for all the yurts from local wood; a king size in the 20ft Ash Field Yurt and standard doubles in the two others. Futons are great and we will keep one in each of the 20ft Ash Field and 18ft Oak Wood Yurt, but a proper bed and mattress gives that touch more comfort and loads more storage underneath.

Along with the Farm Walk Map we shall be providing more information of local walks in the area. One of the beauties of the place is that you can just start walking from your yurt to explore some lovely places without getting into your car. The two tallest tors in Cornwall, Roughtor and Brown Willy can both be walked in a day from the village with grand views that take in the north and south coasts.

The solar shower will be up and running by the start of the season. We are building a wooden shower building similar to our Ig-loos , a bit like an upturned boat with a vaulted roof and cedar cladding.. The bathroom yurt remains the same apart from a new set of covers.

Because we are replacing them with beds we have two futons for sale if you are interested please let us know.
