Oriental Yurt

We came about an oriental themed yurt because Katherine’s old next door neighbour had two 80+ year old antique cupboards that were taking up a lot of space in his garage, we bought them at a steal and based the whole yurt around them, the round bed is a nod of appreciation from us to the yurt site that inspired us to want to build our own (Sara and Darren at the now formally York Yurts).

We actually used to have a heated water bed in this yurt but (and this couple will forever be nameless) somebody bust it so now it has a kingsize tempur mattress in there although the bed looks and feels much bigger with its huge surround.

The oriental yurt has electricity so you can charge your phones or plug in a projector and watch a film on the yurt curtain in the privacy of your own yurt, there is a single led light in there which is adequate enough to light up the yurt but not intruding enough to take away from that fact that you are camping.
