We have finally brought our 4 beautiful yurts home from storage. A huge thank you to Sacha from Yurts for Life for all her advice and support on how to store them. They are hand built in Totnes by Sacha and her team. We had fun and games learning how to put them up! They are traditional Kyrgyz yurts made from steam bent Ash sourced locally in Totnes from sustainable woodland. We went to visit the workshop to have flues put in for the woodburners and had a tour of the incredible workshops. The yurts now have a specially designed room of their own at home with us till we open next season. But will we remember how to put them up next year?

We are going to attempt to document the journey as we learn the joys of building a toilet and shower block, landscaping, groundworks and much more!
