Lupin Yurt, Somerset.
the shadow of England’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lupin Yurt is
a vibrant space for a family of 4 to spend an enjoyable staycation in
Somerset. This structure shines like a
sapphire in amongst its sister yurts at Cherrygrove, a family friendly glamping
site north of Taunton. Lupin Yurt is
appealing not just for its peaceful location and comfortable interior, but its
bright blue, hand-painted beams make it one of our most appealing yurts. Owners Mark and Emma have reflected the
vibrancy of the yurt in its furnishings and decoration – teal cushions, rich
aquamarine rugs and duck egg blue accessories – making this a bright, cheerful
and inviting space for you and your family.
When you’re not out and about enjoying the lush countryside that stretches between the magical Quantock Hills and the mysterious Exmoor National Park, Lupin Yurt and its fabulous facilities are the perfect place to relax with your loved ones.
Cook up a family feast, go hunting for insects, learn to birdwatch, toast marshmallows over an open fire – give yourselves a digital detox and immerse yourselves in the pleasures of a simpler existence during your stay at the calming and colourful Lupin Yurt.

Somerset is an unappreciated part of the UK. It’s home to some of the most widespread nature reserves and undisturbed coastline, and is Cornwall’s more rural neighbour. This particular area, West of Taunton Vale and east of Exmoor, is a tranquil pocket between naturally dramatic hills and moorlands, home to some of Britain’s most beautiful indigenous species, including one of the oldest breeds of wild pony in the world, the Exmoor pony.
