Glamping in Wales at Valley Yurts
Glamping for us is to be able to experience traditional camping but with the comfort of a home away from home. It means not having to bring all your own equipment. It means arriving and starting your holiday with no putting up tents, no unpacking a full car after a long journey, just starting straight in to enjoy the benefits of relaxing in the countryside. We believe it is important to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside so we do not take any bookings from very large all adult groups, hen parties or stag dos. Our idea of the joy of camping is to be able to cook outdoors, eat under the stars and relax with family and friends. Our hens lay fresh eggs daily which you can collect yourself when they provide them! We also have two gorgeous pygmy goats which you can spend time with and who love company. There are 10 acres for you to enjoy, so plenty of space to explore, play and relax with 360 degree views of the beautiful Welsh countryside. To view the layout of the 10 acre site please see our sitemap .More About Us
Stunning Local Walks & Scenery
Valley Yurts is on the border of England and Wales, close to the Offa’s Dyke Path with so many beautiful places to walk and visit. The nearest market town is Kington. It can easily be reached by a short car journey or a stunning walk over Hergest Ridge from the bottom of our lane right into the centre of Kington. The famous town of Hay on Wye is only a short drive away and there are plenty of other lovely places to visit while you are here. The valley is home to lots of wildlife. It is famous for being a Red Kite area and there are also regular visits from buzzards, sparrow hawks, owls and woodpeckers. We are surrounded by sheep who occasionally pop into the field to say hello and hens permitting we offer fresh eggs from our chickens. The site is perfect for families, children can explore safely while you relax and enjoy the views. We also have a games marquee with a selection of games and a table tennis table and wood burning stove.What to Do
Valley Yurts are beautifully crafted from sustainable ash, hand made in Totnes in Devon. Our traditional Kyrgz yurts are a spacious 18’ diameter with a stunning crown in the centre to stargaze at night. The Kyrgyz yurt differs from Mongolian designs in the way the woodwork is steam bent to produce a curved, rounded roof shape that offers more headroom so that you can move around comfortably inside your yurt.
We also have a cosy Shepherds Hut accommodation. Two huts comprise of a bedroom hut with woodburner, double bed and 2 single bunk beds and an additional adjacent hut for dining, relaxing and playing games. All accommodations have an outdoor dining area and private hammock. All our accommodations are named after the apples which grow in our small orchard on site and you can buy our very own Valley Yurts apple juice.
When you have finished toasting marshmallows over the open fire you can snuggle down in front of the woodburner and enjoy the quiet of the countryside. Cooking outdoors is an essential part of the pleasure of glamping; you will have exclusive use of a Kotlich/Bograc enamel cooking pot and griddle, for making soups and stews, frying and barbecuing and if you prefer, there is also simple yet fully equipped communal kitchen. Recipes
Each accommodation has its own private outdoor cooking area with fire pit. We provide simple recipes for those unfamiliar with outdoor cooking but it’s just as fun to experiment with your own favourites. We also have a wood fired pizza oven which you can hire, we charge just £20 to cover the cost of the wood. You can either make your own or you can buy our homemade pizza dough, margarita toppings and rosemary garlic bread ingredients from us. We will show you how to light it and how it all works, then enjoy your very own wood fired pizza experience. Margarita ingredients £7 per adult £5 child with complimentary garlic bread.
