The Yurt Retreat, Fordscroft, Crewkerne, Somerset
The Yurt Retreat offers superb accommodation located just outside of Fordscroft near Crewkerne in Somerset. The Yurt Retreat can be found nestled at the foot of a medieval castle site, where 3 luxurious yurts, 1 treehouse and 1 roundhouse welcome you to a slower pace of life. Set on organic land, this is one of the best glamping destinations in the country.
Our stunning glamping retreat is exclusively for adults. You can savour glorious countryside and wildlife throughout the site. Excellent facilities include private bathrooms, luxury showers and the use of the large lodge with a farmhouse kitchen and comfy lounge.
The Yurts: our 3 yurts are luxurious, spacious and sleep between 2 to 4 people. Each yurt comes with its own coast redwood platform with private decking. From here you can savour stunning views. The yurts are made with canvas over a glorious wooden lattice, with a stunning crown of hand sculpted wood forming the centre piece of the ceiling. Each yurt is individually styled. There is a comfy double bed with Egyptian cotton, bedding and towels. A sofa bed is also available, allowing each yurt to sleep up to 4 people. Facilities include a wood burner, hair dryer, tea and coffee making, bedside lamps and a BBQ.
Luxury Treehouse: Our magnificent stilted treehouse sleeps up to 2 adults. The house stands on tree trunk stilts and is clad in local cedar, giving the impression of a giant bird box with a large round window. There is a wide staircase which winds between the trees leading you up onto the ample decking where you can breakfast overlooking your own woodland retreat. The house has been stylishly furnished and boasts spectacular views. Facilities include fully bespoke kitchen, handmade dining table and lounge with DVD player.
Roundhouse: Our new glamping accommodation sits at the top of the site and enjoys spectacular views across the site. It is a mixture between a yurt and a treehouse. The house comes with an integrated bathroom, double bed kitchen and outdoor bath. Outside there is a patio set for al fresco dining.
We have a communal lodge which contains a lovely country kitchen, large table, crockery and lounge. The lounge has a TV with Samsung Smart TV and a DVD player. Upstairs there is also a bathroom.
The only view from your yurt is nature with buzzards circling overhead, a shy herd of deer grazing in the mornings, with pheasants and badgers wandering out of the woods. It is a magical place to truly unwind and get away from the stresses of working life.
If you feel like you want to experience more of country life, in the next village of Hinton St George (easily accessible by bike or on foot down country lanes), you will find the Lord Poulett Arms, which won the National dining pub of the year in 2009. With flagstone floors, low beams and open fires, it ticks every box for a comfortable country pub.
