This unique property, a 20' yurt, overlooks a fishing lake close to Beckford on the Gloucestershire/Worcestershire border, and sleeps two people.

Island 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 king-size double bed with lake views, kitchen area, dining area and a sitting area with gas fire. There is also a bathroom with whirlpool bath, shower over, basin and WC. There is a veranda, ideal for relaxing, and guests also have use of a private hot tub, two person sauna, furniture and chinimnea with all fuel included. There is off road parking for two car, though please note in bad weather, driving along the track across the field to Island Yurt may not be possible. Ideal for recharging the batteries in a unique and characterful setting, Island Yurt is perfectly placed for enjoying Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, including Cheltenham, Broadway and Evesham.


What an amazing place; the pictures do not do it justice. The glass roof and balcony was a very pleasant surprise. We didn't see another person until we took the boat out and even then it's still very secluded. We are already looking to rebook as it was just pure relaxation.

We had a lovely stay, wished we could have stayed longer. The Yurt is very private, and the views over the lake from inside are fantastic. It is a place we would like to return to.
Mr Holmes

Cosy and romantic even though our stay was on the coldest weekend of the year so far, seating area/lounge is perfect to snuggle up on next to the fire while looking over the lake at local wild life. Plenty of places to visit outside of Beckford too, we went to Bourton on the water, Broadway tower and Burford which are all superb places. Hoping to definitely return in the future for another visit. Loved it.

Myself and my partner visited this yurt on the basis of wanting to get away from it all and to re-charge our batteries. We were both blown away by the yurt and the surrounding area (the pictures do not do this property justice) and its beauty. The home cinema, sauna, rowing boat and hot tub overlooking the lake made the holiday. I thoroughly recommend visiting the Beckford Inn whilst staying here, the service is exceptional and is located just up the road from the yurt itself (I would advise to book if wanting to eat here on the weekend). During our stay, we visited the likes of Broadway and did a cheeky bit of early Christmas shopping. It is hard not to fall in love with Broadway, it's beauty and it's enchanting selection of little shops and tea rooms. We also visited Sudeley Castle, another must for those wanting to explore and unravel some history. The views here are breathtaking as are the pretty gardens surrounding the castle. We both also really enjoyed feeding the ducks, swans and geese every morning over breakfast (something which us townies aren't quite used to) and spending the chilly evenings in front of the fire. Overall, I would highly recommend the yurt to anybody wanting some time out from reality and who are keen to explore. Thank you for a lovely stay, we had a cracking weekend and one we won't forget.

This is a really beautiful and unique property - completely peaceful and relaxing. Had gorgeous views and lots of wildlife to watch. We loved all the facilities available; the hot tub, sauna, dishwasher, and bathroom were all good. The bed is very large and comfortable. Perfect for a 'getting away from it all' holiday!
