Beautiful yurt with a wood-fired hot tub crafted using materials from the ancient woodland in which it stands in the Cotswolds.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
Westley Farm in the Cotswolds is home to acres of woodland with ancient trees and plenty of beautiful flora and fauna. Make your way a little into the woods and you might stumble across The Far Out Yurt. This elegant canvas and timber construction was handmade on the farm itself, using the materials from the woods. Traditional techniques were used to fell trees from the woodland in which the yurt now stands, strip the wood and create the structure from the timber. Set on a platform nestled into the trees, The Far Out Yurt fits in perfectly with the natural surroundings and is a peaceful spot for a rural escape.
Follow the winding path through the trees and you’ll see the yurt, perched on its own platform, emerge before you. Outside, there’s an area of covered deck with a fully equipped camp kitchen for rustling up delicious meals. A dining area allows you to enjoy your meals alfresco and just around the corner, there’s an outdoor shower to give you the full experience of outdoor living. In the evening, get the wood-fired hot tub going and relax as the stars start to appear through the canopy above.
The yurt itself is surprisingly spacious with plenty of natural light creating a relaxed atmosphere. You’ll see the pattern of the trees on the canvas above and there’s a large window looking out into the woodland which you can enjoy from the comfort of the double bed. A rooflight in the centre of the canvas ceiling is perfect for stargazing and there’s a wood-burning stove to keep you cosy on chillier evenings. If you’re bringing the kids along for the trip, there are two roll-up single futon pads.
If you fancy exploring a little further than your secluded hideaway in the woods, you can follow the path through the trees down to the canal. This leads to the nearby town of Stroud where you’ll discover a vibrant arts scene and traditional farmer’s market. Head off through the farm’s fields and you can be at the nearest pub, The Crown at Frampton Mansell, in 20 minutes. If you’ve brought the kids along, treat them to a pony trek through the woods. A little further afield, you’ll find some of the Cotswold's famous towns and villages, such as Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water and Painswick, all of which make for a great day out.
