This superb yurt, set on the owner's livestock farm on the edge of Hepworth village, can sleep two people.

The Rowan Yurt is a wonderful romantic retreat situated on the edge of the village of Hepworth, and two miles from Holmfirth. This single-storey yurt sleeps two people and is open plan with a king-size double bed, dining area and sitting area with woodburner, along with a separate kitchen and shower room, accessed via an internal door. Outside, there is off road parking for two cars, a decked area with a hot tub, furniture and a BBQ, and the shared use of the owner's swimming pool, sauna and steam room. The Rowan Yurt is an excellent place to stay.


Isolated, no wifi and no TV. Just beautiful surroundings, luxurious interior and an outdoor hot tub. What more could anyone want? There is everything you will need in the kitchen, including things like a garlic press, icecube tray, collinder and cafetiere so no need to take anything with you - we took loads of stuff and didn't use anything. Bits like washing up liquid, tinfoil, tea towels are also there as well as torches. Tea, instant coffee, fresh fruit, a pint of milk, a loaf of fresh bread from Holmfirth bakery, homemade jam and some butter are also there so breakfast is sorted on your first morning. Decent toiletries in the bathroom, towels, robes, slippers and even some big woolly socks are all included. The inside is amazing. The photos don't do justice to the inside. The hot tub is great. It kept it's heat really well, even during the rain and wind (it wasn't a particularly balmy July). The locals include a lot of raucous squirrels, a cock pheasant, a few shy calves and a pig who likes nothing better than to be lulled to sleep by being scratched with a stick. The local pub is 5 minutes walk with decent beer, a good gin selection, good food and also does takeaway pizza. This was the furthest we got during our 6 day stay as the yurt was so perfect we didn't want to do anything but relax on our own.

The Rowan Yurt was extremely comfortable and cosy, the owners had thought of everything and it was a wonderful trip. The hot tub was lovely, even in the rain! The property is secluded and private which makes it really peaceful. The use of the pool was a great extra and the on site shop was really handy. I would recommend this to everyone and will be returning!

We had a fantastic holiday. We loved the private hot tub and swimming pool will definitely go back for another holiday and recommend to friends and family. At least 5 stars to the owners.
Mr Neale

The idea of a yurt really appealed to us as we had never stayed in one before. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend to anyone thinking of something a bit different with peace, quiet and seclusion. The hot tub, sauna, steam room and swimming pool were all enjoyed regularly and were very clean. The log burner was sorely missed when we got back home & the hot tub too. For someone who is partially sighted, the farm was a very welcomed break, we managed well with the decking and the lay out. We will be going back if not later this year then early next year. Thank you for a great holiday.
Ms Wright

The Yurt was perfectly positioned in magical woodland. There is not one thing that the owners had not thought of to make it perfect, luxurious and rustic. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely be returning and have strongly recommended it to friends and family.
