The Owner Says

Our Tipi and Yurts are set privately, with individual picnic bench and space for barbecuing. So if you want to spend some time with your family or friends on your own you can, and if you would like to socialise then there is a communal space with a fire pit and seating area under canvas.

Tipis aren’t as weatherproof as Yurts due to their structure therefore we usually recommend the Yurts rather than the Tipi for families especially with smaller children as the Yurts are less challenging in terms of rainy conditions and have advantage of a wood burning stove.  Our Tipi is provided with rain catcher and external hood to minimise drips during rainy conditions. We’ll also show you on arrival how to operate Tipi smoke flaps for when you lighting the fire. This is quite simple operation and it adds that extra factor of adventure to your stay in a Tipi. Please take these factors under consideration when you’re making your choice of accommodation.
