Lavvu (4 at Larkhill Tipis and Yurts)
The Owner Says
The Lavvu is exceptionally cosy! It is adorned inside with a marquee lining (giving quite an ethereal atmosphere) and has a lovely wood burning stove in the centre with a fluted fire cowl. Guests staying here have commented on how quickly it warms up and how very snug it is. You can use the stove as a hob for cooking or use the calor gas camping stove provided.
Furnishings include four wooden beds, two singles and a double, all of which are covered in mattresses, pillows, colourful throws and large cushions. There is a dining table with four stools, a chest full of blankets and a wooden chest containing cooking equipment, i.e. pots and pans, crockery and cutlery. The wooden base is covered in carpeting, rugs and sheepskins. Lighting is provided by a string of LED's around the crown and lanterns. Outside there is a campfire area and a picnic bench.

Such a magical and enchanting experience
The perfect glamping holiday.
Just perfect. Stayed for two nights in the lavvu, which was cosy and snug. Kids loved it and didn't want to leave. Explored some lovely beaches. Larkhill is beautiful, well thought out and very welcoming. We all want to go back again soon. Highly recommended.
