It was an unbelievable experience. Probably the most luxurious experience you can ever hope to associate with "camping." The hot tub was divine and the cinematic projector was an absolute winner!

Our holiday at the secret Island Yurt was absolutely fantastic, one of the best holidays I have ever had. It showed me the nature and beauty of England and reminded me why I still take holidays in my home country. The Yurt's facilities were amazing and the setting was true paradise, plus the owners are so welcoming and friendly and happy to give advice to us novice ramblers. I have already started planning when I can next go back; it was very hard to leave such a wonderful place.

Peaceful and quiet; the best sleep I have had in months. I love this place; it is absolute perfection. The lake, the wildlife and the yurt is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend staying here and cannot wait to return again someday. The owner is very nice and has obviously put in a lot of hard work to make this a little piece of heaven.

We loved our break at Secret Island Yurt. It was so peaceful and we were surrounded by wildlife, including the geese and swans who would greet us each morning! The hot tub was fantastic and we made use of the rowing boat on the lake, which was a unique experience. The yurt itself was very cosy, comfortable and really warm, even during the time we were there in late December and early January. There were all the amenities you'd need, delivered in a tasteful way. We plan to return in the summer and would certainly recommend to friends and family.

An absolute romantic retreat! It breaks my heart to unveil this Secret Island Yurt review as we want it all for ourselves! A perfect oasis! The Yurt is astonishingly spacious, very cosy with a nice warm touch to it and gorgeously decked out. The kitchen had everything you need, the bed was extremely comfortable, the projector was a treat to see our pictures together and the lake was magnificent. It was simply mesmerising looking out over the lake gazing at ducks, ducklings and swans. It was an overall amazing experience with someone I love, sitting under the stars in the hot tub in a dimmed light took us on a magical feel of peace and romance. Trust me you will not want to leave this fascinating fairyland! Highly recommended if you are looking for a romantic escape, we are definitely revisiting this amazing place soon.
