Beautifully designed Luxury Yurt Stay in West Dorset, with wood-fired hot tub, wood burning stove, and private two acre garden,
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
The Yurt at Hollands Farmhouse is a luxury, unique, private space within an extraordinary two acre garden, nestled within the tranquil Dorset countryside.
Hollands Farmhouse originally dates back to the 18th century, and was once a working dairy farm. In present times, the farmhouse forms part of a quaint residential hamlet, with its expansive gardens beautifully maintained to provide the ideal setting for an unforgettable countryside escape. Perfectly situated just ten minutes from Dorchester, you'll also find that you are only six miles away from the sea and several award winning beaches.
Locally crafted by experts and created from fine oak and canvas, the yurt itself is wonderfully spacious, and insulated with lamb’s wool for extra warmth. You'll find everything you need to relax and revive inside. A swish sofa, board games, and a smart wood-burning stove form part of the bespoke living area. With a super king-sized bed dressed in goose down duvets and plump pillows, everything has been taken care of here. Whatever time of year you visit, you are ensured complete cosiness. You’ll even find mains electricity, USB charging sockets and WiFi for if you so desire.
The indulgence continues outside, where a bespoke horsebox bathroom has been expertly designed to include a piping hot double-shower with discreet views of the countryside, flushing loo, heated towel rail and complimentary toiletries.
Meanwhile, a fully equipped ‘open stable' kitchen provides plenty of scope for fine al fresco dining, with a gas hob, SMEG fridge-freezer, microwave, Kadai BBQ and firepit, all adding choices to your cooking options.
Other opportunities to relax in your private space include a hammock, stylishly created from birch trees, and a cedar wood-fired hot tub – perfect for soaking in with a glass of bubbles and admiring the night sky.
Everything about The Yurt at Hollands Farmhouse has been cleverly conceptualised, thought through, and executed, to create a living space unlike anywhere else. It is both quaint and comfortable.
Between the views, the tranquillity of the private yurt, relaxing hot-tub and beautiful gardens, guests may struggle to leave.

It’s an amazing, peaceful place to stay . The yurt is beautifully decorated with a huge comfy bed and wood burner, the hot tub was amazing, looking out on the country side in the day and looking up at the stars at night, all we had for company were low flying geese and nature. We relaxed on the bean bags and hamock playing scrable while taking in the beautiful countryside. Will and Fiona were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. Thank you Will and Fiona for making our stay so enjoyable. I highly recommend if you want a very relaxing, back to nature experience. We will definitely return one day xxx

My girlfriend and i stayed here for 3 nights on a lovely summers weekend and it was even better than either of us expected, coming from London we loved the privacy aspect of the yurt and peaceful location. Plenty to do and see within a short driving distance , but equally as enjoyable to just stay in the private section provided, favourite part for me was having marshmallows over the fire and hot tub under the stars. A sense of rekindled love and much needed time together after getting lost in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Cant wait to go back!

Amazing! My partner and I stayed here for 3 days and we absolutely loved it! I honestly didn’t want to leave. It is such a relaxing and beautiful place. I loved the hot tub - looking at the starts and moon at night, it was a dream. The bed is super comfortable and the fireplace makes it so so romantic. It is by far one of the best experiences we’ve had and we are looking forward going back! Love, Veronika x

Myself and my wife had an amazing stay, needing to kick back and chill. The Yurt was really comfortable and beautifully kitted out, feeling really romantic. We really enjoyed the open kitchen and cooking al-fresco meaning we didn't need to venture out and could enjoy our peaceful, beautiful surroundings. We took full advantage of kicking back on the double hammock, taking time to relax and watch the trees and clouds float by. The hot tub was great too, having really struggled to maintain the right temperate in wood fired hot tubs, this had the natural wood feel as well as the practical well maintained temperature. Spent so much time in here at different times of the day and night, went home wrinkly! And how can I forget the horsebox bathroom. Felt like I was in an Alice in Wonderland adventure as I posted myself in through the small door to what felt like a much bigger, well equipped space than it looked from the outside. Fiona and Will were great hosts and willing to help make our stay as positive an experience as they could.

My husband and I spent an amazing weekend in the yurt. It was simply perfect - everything that we wanted, and more!! Absolutely spotless, very private and well equipped with everything that you’d need for your stay. The horse box bathroom was quirky, (which had been an attraction to stay here) but beautiful and toasty warm. Greeted by Will he made us feel at home immediately and he talked us through how everything worked. In short, if you fancy an escape to a beautifully quiet, warm and well equipped location - this is just the place for you!! Thanks

We’ve just returned from the most relaxing stay at the yurt. A beautiful setting with a really luxurious feel- extremely comfortable bed, every facility you could wish for and lovely evenings in the hot tub under the stars! Will and Fiona were easily contactable, helpful and welcoming, yet unobtrusive, so we felt we had plenty of privacy. Kitchen facilities and fire pit perfect for BBQs, bathroom really novel and in keeping with the setting, bedding and towels high quality, hammock and hot tub lovely for relaxation and views across the fields. Absolutely perfect, thank you!

My husband surprised me with a stay at the yurt for my 30th birthday and I had the most amazing weekend. Everything at Hollands farm is so beautiful and well thought out, we especially loved the horse box bathroom and spent hours looking at the beautiful view from the hot tub. Fiona and Will were such welcoming hosts and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It's safe to say we did not want to leave when Monday morning came around. This is a truly special stay and we would highly recommend. We hope to visit again in the future!

We absolutely loved our stay at the yurt! The luxurious feel of the yurt and the idyllic, picturesque surroundings made for a wonderful experience. Will and Fiona have created the perfect getaway complete with a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day. The covered outdoor kitchen and the converted horsebox bathroom were also fantastic! Absolutely wonderful, we can't wait to visit again!!

This yurt was everything and more for our staycation this year! The perfect location for many day trips around Dorchester/Dorset. It was a perfect start and end to every day being here - complete privacy but comfort knowing Fiona and Will were on hand if we needed anything. The facilities were perfect - wouldn’t have changed a thing. Perfect hot tub and hammock to relax at the end of the day… all the finer details didn’t go un-noticed, Fiona and Will have done amazingly at creating this perfect spot for a much needed break! Thank you again - we hope to come back!

My fiance and I had the most amazing and romantic break at the Yurt. It was such a unique and beautiful place. The accomodation is a very high standard and the place was so clean and tidy. The views was the hot tub, even just stepping out of the front door, were stunning. Steve and I definitely hope to come back one day and relieve the happy memories we made on this amazing weekend. Would highly recommend to any couple who asked. (In fact we do ??)

Highly recommended - a tranquil hideaway in the middle of the Dorset countryside. The views from the Yurt are stunning - sunrise over the orchards on the hill opposite and 360 degree views from the hammock and the hot tub. The Yurt is beautiful - every detail has been thought about. The bed is so comfortable! The kitchen is well equipped and we loved the bathroom in a converted horse box - Plenty of hot water with a view over the hills. It's also twinned with a sponsored toilet in Africa which is a nice touch. Towels and linens are all high quality. If you want a relaxing time away where the hosts have thought of everything you might need, then look no further. You can get to the beaches easily and there are plenty of options close by for walks. However if you just want to chill out at the Yurt, then the hammock and hot tub are idyllic.

We spent 2 nights at the yurt for our 10th wedding anniversary and it was absolutely perfect in every way. Such a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing place to totally unwind and switch off from hectic family life! The whole experience exceeded our expectations and the yurt and it's amenities are even better than in the photos as is it's position high up on the hillside with fabulous views. The yurt is stunning and huge, the horse box bathroom is brilliant and the hot tub pure bliss. Amazing stargazing, al fresco breakfasts and relaxing in the hammock and around the fire pit! The only downside was having to leave! A truly memorable stay, thank you!

Words can not express how beautiful this place is! My hubby and I had 2 of the most relaxing days/nights here dealing only with decisions like when to eat and whether to lay in the hammock or get into the hot tub (again)! Will and Fiona were fabulous-leaving us to enjoy the peace and tranquillity but being on hand should we require any assistance. A truly relaxing, tranquil, beautiful place-we will definitely be back!

My partner and I have recent returned from a two night stay at The Yurt and cannot recommend it highly enough! The Yurt is positioned in a peaceful and secluded spot overlooking rolling hills. We spent hours in the wood fired hot tub admiring the view and relaxing in the hammock. The Yurt itself is romantically lit with fairy lights and the bed was a dream to climb into at night. Being the middle of July, we did not make use of the log burner but I'm sure this makes a lovely addition in the winter. The horse box bathroom has been beautifully renovated and hot water was aplenty. Looking out at the view whilst taking a shower was definitely a highlight. We have returned feeling relaxed and refreshed and looking forward to our next trip! Thanks Will and Fiona for having us and for being lovely, non intrusive hosts.
