I wanted a short break for my family of 4. I had been wanting to go away camping for a while, but since my Wife did not want to go camping, I thought hiring a yurt would be a good compromise. We found Kite Hill Yurts on google, and I was immediately impressed by the time they had taken over their web site and the booking process.
There are two yurts on the site. Ours was excellently kitted out with everything you need. Each yurt has a separate hut for cooking and dining, and an outside compost toilet. There is a shared cabin with microwave, honesty shop and shower/washroom facilities. Everything was absolutely immaculate.
For those who have watched too many episodes of 3 in a bed, the compost toilets are brilliant. You do not need to worry about anything. They are far higher standard than most traditional camp site toilets I have been to.
The situation of the site is very secluded indeed, with plenty of space for walks. You can let your children run free and explore without any fear at all. All in all, I would give this top marks. The family owners have a vision of an ecological place to relax, where you are close to nature. They have achived that with some degree of style and character.
