A magical, rural glampsite in the lush Hampshire woodlands, where four cosy yurts boast luxury home comforts…
Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 2 nights low season & 3 nights high season
Fall in love with nature’s simpler way of life with a stay at this magical, off-grid glampsite in the Hampshire countryside. With luxury yurts in an ancient woodland glade, it is a spell-binding place to escape the real world. Enjoy picnics by the river and romantic nights beneath the stars and you’ll get a glimpse of the halcyon days of the past.
The four cosy yurts are hidden within the South Downs National Park and are part of the magnificent 450 acre Adhurst Estate. Raised off the forest floor and with plenty of home comforts, they embrace the true camping dream without any of the downsides. Double beds are topped with feather down duvets and woollen throws, while vintage furniture sits on thick wooden floorboards. Twinkling fairy lights add a touch of magic, joined by a wood burning stove to keep everything toasty. Two additional camp beds provide room for the children, making these fanciful hide-outs suitable for up to four people.
Beyond the yurts there are also a myriad of special glamping extras, including safari-style kitchens that have cold running water. With two-burner gas hobs and plenty of BBQ options, you can whip up a tasty evening feast or just a simple breakfast treat. An outdoor shower has lashings of hot water and an open roof looking up at the treetop canopy. A long drop composting privy is also on-site along with a modern bathroom out by the car park.
The Chestnut and Birch yurts form the main camp and have a small shared woodland kitchen and access to the communal facilities. At 100 metres apart they have their own private setting but are also ideal for families or groups of friends to hire together.
The Rother and Willow yurts are separated from the main camp and offer a heightened level of privacy in a peaceful forest setting. Each has their own exclusive campfire with safari-style kitchen and access to the shared toilet/shower facilities. The luxurious Willow Yurt also has its own indulgent slipper bath for candlelit soaks and hot bubble baths.
If you want to discover some of nature’s best secrets then there are plenty of walks to enjoy right from your yurt-step.
Head along the winding river or down the enchanting coppiced paths to see the beautiful fauna and the flourishing wild flora. Bush-craft sessions can be arranged on request and If you explore the quaint villages of Adhurst, Sheet and Steep you’ll find award-winning pubs and traditional village greens.
On site we have birdwatching, tennis, bushcraft sessions, fly-fishing and fly-fishing tuition (seasonal) and there's the zip wire and rope swings

This place is incredible! The yurts themselves are beautifully appointed, with just the right blend of nature and comfort. The stove kept us warm. The outdoor kitchen had everything we needed. Our host Alison was very welcoming. Most of all, the setting was unbelievably stunning. The pictures do not even do the place justice. The yurts are within an ancient, self seeded woodland with pines and beech trees and oaks that spread for acres and acres, descending into a river which you can swing across with a rope swing. We actually saw a deer and a white horse on our walk. There are viewing platforms nestled in the woods offering the most incredible views over the tree canopy. My partner put it this way: if someone was to ask where the most beautiful place is within a couple hours of London, he would say this place. I think it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. Kudos to the owner for making it such a wonderful place.
