Strawberry Skys Yurts
Reviewed 18 August 2014

The four of us spent 4 nights staying in the Yurt. The amenities in and around the Yurt are just right for a comfortable stay. The wood burning stove made the yurt very cosy which was great as the weather was very a bit wet and cool for August. Cooking on the campfire was super fun and local towns were not far away. We will happily go back to Strawberry Sky Yurts again. I think the Yurts would be great to stay in in the colder months too.
Thank you Eric and Anya for a great stay.

Just had a fantastic mid week break here in the double yurt.While location is remote, Welshpool is just a few miles away where you will find all the local amenities you needThe owners Anya and Eric take good care of you and the Yurts are all beautiful inside.Their farm is set in the rolling valleys and the views are stunning. If you are looking for somewhere quiet to stay then this is for you.Was a bit concerned about the compost toilet but these fears proved unfounded even after a week of high tempsKitchen area was will kitted and shower was hot and always cleanHad not been to this part of Wales before, and found it very beautiful with just an hours drive to the amazing seaside town of Aberfidovey

We stayed in the larger/double yurt at the end of May, with our two young children and two month old baby. The yurts are lovely things to stay in - attractive, spacious and very cosy with the wood burning stoves going. The whole place is a dream for young ones...from collecting the firewood to running and playing with Eric and Anya's two very friendly dogs, there's lots of space for them to tear around within sight.

In the evening, the campfire and barbecue were perfect, with all utensils provided, and a glass of wine to accompany the glorious sunsets and views was pretty good.

We'll definitely book a return visit...we all enjoyed it way more than expected. The composting loo wasn't the grim challenge I expected - clean, hygienic and an interesting thing to explain to the children (who loved the idea of chucking the sawdust down and were quite fascinated by the whole idea). We're not into roughing it too much, and with young ones, you really want things to just be nice and easy!

The kitchen is brilliantly equipped, and has a really nice covered area so you can still eat outside, even the rain stops the barbeque fun.

As others have mentioned, Eric and Anya could not be more welcoming, friendly hosts. They very clearly go the extra mile to make sure your stay is as rewarding as possible. They strike the perfect balance between being around if you need them, but otherwise letting you get on with it.

Any criticisms? Nope, none. It's an absolute gem of a place, the kind you want to keep to yourself, but grudgingly accept you really must share. Just a note of caution - if you stay in the double yurt, Eric will tell you to remember to duck when you go through the little connecting doors. We were warned, we mostly remembered, but got a couple of knocks to the head when we forgot! So, duck!!!

I've recommended a trip here to a few friends, and we'll be back within the next year.

Thanks for a lovely break!

We visited over easter Monday to Friday and were pleasantly surprised by the space in the yurt for a family of 5.their was plenty of wood for the burner and campfire to keep us warm and plenty of sheep in the neighbouring field to keep my daughter amused. We loved the yurt but there were some things you should take in hand and could be improved.the kitchen and showers were immaculately clean but could not get to grips with toilet.....a shed with 2 toilets in and smelt a little when seats were left up. We also stayed in the top yurt so going up and down the muddy field was exhausting so be weary if you have bad knees or pushchairs..maybe a stone/gravel path would help.overall it was fantastic. Lots of love and memories of the place you won't be dissapointed.

Strawberry sky's is a fantastic place to holiday with children. We booked into the new double yurt and it was extremely spacious! Having the extra room was fantastic with children as you could put the children to bed and then stay up later in the other yurt. The children loved collecting wood for the log burners which in turn made the yurts feel so warm and cosy! When night came your yurt became lit by tea light and twinkling fairy lights - just beautiful! Each yurt has
its own campfire which the children enjoyed roasting marshmallows on! Anya and Eric are fantastic hosts and greet you like friends! Would absolutely recommend this site to stay in.

What a great place, Eric was a welcoming host and always around if we needed anything including instructions on how to get to local attractions.
Both our children are wary of dogs but they fell in love with Mila and Buffy.
Excellent yurts beautifully decorated with and all amenities kept clean and well equipped.
This place is a hidden gem to which we will definitely be returning

There are three accommodations which are situated apart from each other in a secluded two acre field. Willow yurt is roughly 16ft in diameter and sleep 2-4 adults. Cherry yurt is 19ft in diameter can sleep up to 6 adults. And Oak yurt is two yurts, one 16ft and one 19ft which are joined together by a corridor and a door. Each yurt is fully furnished and heated by a woodburner which makes them extremely warm while the felt holds in the heat. Outside, each yurt has its own fire-pit, bench seating, picnic table and cast iron BBQ, all of which can be moved around the field so larger groups can sit together. At the bottom of the yurt field is a very eco compost toilet, don't be scared it's not that different to a normal loo, just without the flushing! The kitchen and shower facilities are situated in a separate area a few metres from the yurt field. The cabin kitchen is fully equipped with all the cooking equipment, crockery and glasses you should need including a gas cooker, fridge and kitchen sink. The shower is close by and is fully heated it also includes a heated towel rail and hairdryer. ... more   less
