Yurts Bertie and Gertie were built in Mongolia using traditional methods and materials as far as possible. Yurts (or ger as the Mongolians call them) have been the traditional homes for nomads in central Asia for thousands of years. They are designed to be portable and easy to transport to the next camp as they follow the seasons. Maybe the original flatpack!
They are made from wooden "concertina" wall sections which are bound together using horsehair. They have 2 roof supports, a central crown and "wheel spokes" which (along with the door) are all hand painted in traditional designs in bold colours.
They are then covered with several layers for wind resistance and waterproofing, with the insulation layer of felt traditionally made from sheep's wool.
The clear roof centre gives you a true "sleeping under the stars" experience.
The yurts are available from around Easter till October half term with the woodburner keeping you snug on cooler days.
