I can’t sing the praises of the yurts up near Offas Dyke enough! The surroundings are absolutely perfect and staring out over the sprawling fields below really is an awe inspiring sight. They yurt itself is lovely and roomy, with a double bed in the back yurt and a very comfy sofa bed in the front yurt/living space. We were there as a party of 4 and it was more than adequate for us! There is loads to see and do in the surrounding area, with some lovely walks to take in. So give it a few days there at least!
The yurts are completely private, surrounded by fences, trees and high bushes. So you feel completely alone, which is exactly what you would want from such a beautiful rural getaway. You have lovely decking and private gardens all to yourself, which are great for just starring at the stunning views. All mod cons are within 5 steps to boot, with a toilet, washing up area and shower directly behind the yurts themselves. You also have a gas stove in the front yurt for cooking and a wood burner outside, which is great for cooking on too. And the log burner in the yurt itself is amazing and gets it nice and toasty at night in no time at all.
And the hosts! Amazingly friendly and accommodating people! On the way up we enquired if there was a small fridge, for beers etc. There wasn’t... so they went and bought one in time for our arrival! That says it all really! Amazing stay in every possible way! Will be heading back for sure!
Location: Off the scale. Truly stunning!
