We stayed mid-September we our daughter. Another couple and their daughter came but we managed to fit just fine. There is one double bed and we had two small matresses on the floor for the kids (provided by the Yurt) whilst another couple slept on the sofa bed in the lounge area.
There was enough room for us all and we had all the facilities you need (as long as you can skip TV for a few days).
The log burner kept us warm in the evening and whilst we did cook an evening meal on the first night we got a chinese take-away the second evening whilst the kids slept. There is a very small fridge for some essentials.
We had great fun getting some chicken eggs, playing in the grounds, visiting Chirk castle and soaking up the views. There are plenty of places to walk although we didn't get round to it.
We will definitely go again!

We've just returned from our wonderful short break at Offas Dyke yurts with a 2 and a 3.5 yr old. We had an amazing time, the kids adored the fresh air and chatting endlessly to the sheep and chickens! Loads for the little ones to do including trampoline, swings, slide and lovely sandpit. The kids really enjoyed collecting fire wood each day and popping in to see the very friendly chickens looking for eggs. The facilities are great including a lovely log burner to keep you toasty at night. The owners were great and really friendly. We are already planning our next stay!

What an amazing place to stay. We have just returned from THE MOST relaxing couple of days. I can't recommend the yurt highly enough. If you are looking to escape, relax and get away from the world then this is the place. We thoroughly enjoyed walking, sitting by the log burning stove drinking wine, sitting on the swing at the bottom of the garden, looking at the views and listening to nothing but sheep baa-ing and birds singing. I didnt want to come home and will certainly be visiting again.
The pictures do not do justice to the craftsmanship, comfort and quirkiness that this place has to offer. So much thought has gone into making this a really special place to stay. Jo and Tom were extremely welcoming and had even left fresh cut wild flowers and mint in vases for us.
This camping-for-cheats break did not mean that we had to compromise on any home comforts: a comfortable bed, powerful hot shower, hot running water on tap, a fridge and gas stove to mention just a few of the amenities.
p.s I would recommend this place to people of all ages, however it is not wheel-chair friendly as there are two steps to climb to get on to the yurts decking/platform.

Have just returned home this morning from Offas Dyke Yurts and didnt want to leave what a wonderful place the yurt was brilliant and well equipped and cosy. The owners were lovely and very helpful and made us feel very welcome.
Beautiful views and very peaceful everything we wanted.
The bed was extremely comfy and also had electric blanket which was lovely.
The wood burning stove in the evening was so nice and made us feel at home.
Have to say that the shower was one of the best ive ever had very powerful.
Cant wait to go back beats any stay ive ever had in a hotel.
Thank you so much for making my partner Chris birthday such a wonderful day.
See you soonxxx

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!

Accommodation: 10/10
Service: 10/10
Location: Off the scale. Truly stunning!

Such a beautiful Yurt in such a beautiful location! Inside was as picturesque as the outisde, with a cosy log burner, beautiful wood flooring and electric blankets on the bed! Everything was done to a really high standard and presented perfectly, and the owners were really friendly and helpful. Was the perfect choice of location for a weekend gathering with friends, and I'm sure it'd be just as pefect for a family or couple. Can't fault it!

Room Tip: Choose the Yurt!
