  • We are Country Bumpkin Yurts; a countryside glamping experience

    Our site comprises of three traditionally designed yurts, spacious and with full access to all the modern amenities. Two of our yurts can sleep up to six people, and our smaller yurt accommodates two people. Each yurt is based on a wooden platform, with picturesque views across the farm. A log burner, shabby chic furnishings and cosy beds are in each tent so you can rest in comfort and style. With rustic-luxury private bathrooms, outdoor kitchenettes, and a communal indoor kitchen, you will have everything you need. The wooden gazebo area provides a great space for alfresco dining with your friends and family. Our eco-friendly wood-burning hot tub makes it a yurt glamping experience for those looking for an extra special stay.

  • We should explain what a yurt is!

    Yurt is Russian for ‘Dwelling’. It is a nomadic shelter lived in for thousands of years by tribes from the near East and Central Asia. Country Bumpkin Yurts have built upon this traditional structure and added a dose of luxury!

    A stay in a yurt will allow you to experience the uplifting and calming effects of living without corners in a circular space, conducive to balance and harmony. And the roof window lets you watch the stars across the sky as you feel yourself unwind. The yurts architecture is not only extremely practical but also aesthetically beautiful.
