Stay year-round at our new Bothy

Made by our friend Bernard in Somerset, this beautiful 5m diameter yurt – named after the lovely birds that can be heard purring on the campsite in the summer - is crafted from ash and hazel. A transparent circular window in the ceiling provides a view of the night sky, and there are two additional transparent windows in the walls.

The Turtle Dove Yurt is centrally placed on the site with an uninterrupted view of the wild flower meadow and the South Downs in the distance.

The bed is king-size (5ft x 6.6ft), hand-built from oak harvested from the woods on the campsite with a lovely handcrafted wooden headboard, and topped off with a luxury natural fibre mattress, four down pillows and a down duvet, pure Egyptian cotton bed linen and colourful recycled wool blankets.

There is a wood-burning stove to keep you toasty in the colder months, with a stove-top kettle and a Bialetti coffee-maker.

Lighting is provided by battery reading lights, two travelling battery hurricane lamps, and a large candle lantern.

The yurt is furnished with quirky, locally sourced furniture, including a leather sofa with recycled cushions, two beautiful African chairs, and a Burrell family travelling trunk.

The floor is laid with coir matting, a Longhorn cowskin and sheepskin rug.

All our tents are raised off the ground on a wooden platform ensuring a flat floor and avoiding any damp.

The Yurt has its own upcycled fire-pit and barbeque grill, with a table and French café chairs.
