This unique property, a 16' yurt, overlooks a fishing lake close to Beckford on the Gloucestershire/Worcestershire border, and sleeps two people.

The Yurt is a very special holiday home, set in a peaceful location by the owner's fishing lake near the village of Beckford, in the Gloucestershire countryside. This unique property is all open plan, with a double bed, roll-top bath with shower attachment, kitchen area, dining area with lake views and a sitting area with gas fire. The WC is in a separate structure just outside the yurt. There is a hand-built veranda, ideal for relaxing, and guests also have use of the owners' field, hot tub and outdoor swimming pool should they wish. There is off road parking for one car, though please note in bad weather, driving along the track across the field to The Yurt may not be possible. Ideal for recharging the batteries in a unique and characterful setting, The Yurt is perfectly placed for enjoying Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, including Cheltenham, Broadway and Evesham.


Perfect location slightly shabby accommodation.
The location is a winner if you are looking for peace and relaxation. The yurt has everything you need and is warm and cosy. I must admit to being disappointed however by the overall appearance, particularly the outside areas, the place needs a deep clean and some TLC. It could be so much more with a little attention to detail. I would imagine when the yurts were first installed it was near perfect, unfortunately the place has been left too long without a good clean and spruce up.

The most amazing relaxing place ever.
We stayed here for a week and its the most relaxing place you could ask for. We were greeted by the very friendly owners and shown everything then left to enjoy, although owners are at hand if needed. The Yurt is really secluded (we didnt see anyone for the whole week!) Everything is suplied ... towels, bedding, logs, kitchen utensils, dish washer tablets etc there was nothing that we needed. The bed was really comfy and the yurt was really warm and cosy. Bliss laying in the roll top bath looking out over the lake. The hot tub was amazing and was lovely to use at any time of day. Night time was amazing cooking on the bbq or using the pizza oven with a couple of glasses of wine. We had a new family for the week ... ducks, black swans, geese and it was lovely to wake up to them every morning waiting for their breakfast. Thank you for letting us have the pleasure of the Yurt as our home for the week. We will be back in 2018 for our Honeymoon ... 2wks though not 1wk.

The Perfect Escape
I stayed here from 1st -8th July 2016 with my husband & 2 dogs. The owners were friendly and helpful and are close enough if you need anything but far away enough that you get privacy. This place is amazing and certainly puts the glam in glamping. It was so quiet and peaceful and I loved feeding the ducks & Swans etc. The yurt is clean and tidy and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. It was great to spend all day in the sun, followed by a barbecue & then a soak in the hot tub with a glass of bubbly watching the sun going down over the lake. The best bit for me was that I was able to take my dogs and they had a great time running through the woods and paddling in the lake. I would highly recommend this place for a relaxing stay and I cannot wait to go back next year!

It was so peaceful, private and relaxing. We loved sitting in the hot tub overlooking the lake as it got dark. The Yurt was beautiful and had everything we needed. It was very well thought out by the owners. I loved waking up and feeding the ducks and geese every morning. We also enjoyed the barbecues each night. The best bit was that I was able to take my dog and include him in our holiday.

The most important thing was the privacy, nobody bothered us at all. The wildlife was amazing, there were so many different birds. The scenery was so beautiful and the lake so pretty, the fishing was excellent. The hot tub was so good, especially at night with all the flashing lights. The log burner and BBQ were well handy. Overall it was truly AMAZING!
