There are those rare occasions when you arrive at a site and within seconds regret not booking a longer stay. The Yurt Retreat is one of these instantly likeable places. Tucked away at the foot of a medieval castle site, and surrounded by Somerset’s rolling countryside, The Yurt Retreat is all about one thing - tranquility. Welcoming owner Paul says it best himself; “All you have to do is relax.”

Idyllic setting aside, the facilities at The Yurt Retreat are anything but basic. Spend easy days relaxing by your very own 20 foot yurt, set on a high quality redwood platform. Each yurt has been individually styled (there are 4 onsite) with shabby chic and handmade furniture, comfortable double bed, sofa bed, electricity, tea & coffee making facilities, and private decking with your very own wood burner. Guests also have the added extra of using the large communal firepit, perfect for marshmallow toasting and star gazing on a clear Somerset evening. 

The Yurts are tucked around the edge of woodland with the communal building 'The Lodge' at the heart. The Lodge contains a beautiful country kitchen, with a large table big enough for everyone to fit around. There is a lounge in the roof of the building where you can sit to read or watch a film on our comfy sofas.

The Yurt Retreat’s selling points continue with its excellent location, being right on the Devon/Somerset border. One thing’s for sure, there’s no shortage of activities. The cute coastal town of Lyme Regis (nicknamed The Pearl of Dorset) is only a 30 minute drive away. The old town (dating back to the 14th century) is a great place to explore its independent boutiques, art galleries, cafes, second-hand bookshops, and gorgeous public gardens which have all been built around the lovely River Lym.

The Yurt Retreat is a place to really lose yourself. Whether you decide to amble leisurely across the Somerset countryside, discover the unique and utterly sublime Jurassic Coast, or simply to sit under the stars and warm your hands by a toasty campfire, this glamping site has you covered. There certainly is a slower pace of life at The Yurt Retreat, and Cool Camping thinks you’ll love it.
