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.


The most amazing holiday we have ever had
Well where do I start. As soon as we saw the place we fell in love with it. Even staying in October the weather was so nice. The Jacuzzi was so nice even at 23:00 at night. Was the most romantic place I have ever been in. We even named the ducks that came for food every morning. This place was the most amazing place ever and can't wait to go there again.

Visited the Lakeside Yurt 15th June 2018 for 3 nights...... what a lovely little hideaway!..... so peaceful and relaxing. The owner who greeted us, was really friendly and showed us to the Yurt and explained how everything worked. The Yurt was spotlessly clean and the owners had thought to provide everything.... even robes!!! The bed was really comfortable. If you don't like brilliant daylight in the early morning from the skylight, bring a pair of eye covers. Our dog Holly had a lovely time and enjoyed watching the ducks swimming up to the veranda.... not so pleased however when one of two came up ON the veranda. The undercover area on the veranda was fab and kept you shielded from the wind.... it even had an overhead heater which was really warm. We really didn't feel ready to leave... I came home and looked on line to see when we could do our next break.....only to sadly discover the place is full until October.

What a fantastic place.
My better half booked the yurt for my birthday, wow what a fantastic and peaceful place. The yurt is kitted our with a hot water boiler, two ring gas hob, combi microwave oven, roll top bath with shower mixer, a gas fire and a rather comfy double bed. Set right by a lake with decking area and sheltered seating with heating! Lovely to just sit and watch the sun set. The little boat supplied is a must to explore the lake. If you want something warmer, there is a hot tub which you can just relax away all your troubles. Then sit by the fire pit set in the woods. Good base location to explore Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and just a 10 min walk from Beckford which has a post office shop. There is a Morrison's on the way to Evesham for a bigger shop. All in all a fantastic place if you just want to get away from it all for a week. We will see you again in August for our mini moon!

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.
