Glamping is a broad term that refers to many different types of holidays, from stays in cosy cabins to safari tent breaks. Unsurprisingly, yurt holidays also fall into this category and are fast becoming one of the most popular abodes for those wishing to enjoy a more luxurious stay under canvas. But, aside from the obvious novelty of sleeping in one, why choose a yurt holiday? Below, we’ve listed just a few reasons why a break away in one of these beautiful structures could be for you!
Cosy and Comfortable
While many of us have fond memories of family camping holidays, tents are not the most luxurious accommodation and at times, can be quite uncomfortable, especially in bad weather. Yurts, however, boast a sophisticated design that is far more weather-proof than a standard tent and offer a fantastic alternative for those who love camping but would rather stay somewhere a little more cosy and comfortable.
Additionally, not only does their sturdy structure make them feel more like a home away from home, but the variety of furniture, utensils and handy home comforts inside yurts make them a far more luxurious option than traditional camping. Treat your family to hearty breakfast under canvas, huddle around the log burner of an evening and snuggle up in a comfortable bed to enjoy a proper night’s sleep!
Low Impact and Eco-Friendly
With the concept of ecotourism becoming ever-more popular, it is unsurprising that more and more holidaymakers are searching for eco-friendly accommodation that has minimal impact on the environment.
Compared to traditional holiday homes, yurts are much kinder on the environment not only as a functioning abode but also during their construction. As well as taking less time and resource to build, these organic structures tend to be predominantly made from natural materials such as cotton, wood and wool, and require little maintenance once completed.
Those holidaying in yurts can also rest easy knowing that their stay will do little damage to the natural world due to the self-sufficiency of these rustic structures, with nifty features such as inbuilt insulation, log burners, natural lighting and solar energy all contributing to making yurt holidays one of the greenest getaway options available!
Closer to Nature
For many of us, one of the most appealing aspects of a yurt holiday is the thought of being closer to nature and consequently, having the opportunity to experience some truly magical happenings during a break away.
Whether you’ve opted for a stay under canvas in the Peak District or a Wales glamping experience, escaping city life and heading to a rural location for a yurt holiday will enable you to rediscover the beauty of the natural world and immerse yourself in nature. Swap that unwelcome ring of your morning alarm clock for bursts of beautiful bird song, enjoy your lunch surrounded by fields and woodland instead of stark office walls, and gaze upon the twinkling stars rather than a flickering TV screen of an evening.
Cater to All
Whether you’re enjoying a romantic getaway for two, a long-awaited family holiday or a short break with friends, a yurt is a versatile style of accommodation that caters to all party types. Being crafted to perfection with fully furnished interiors, no matter how large your party is, a stay in one or several of these gorgeous abodes will make for a pleasant experience for both young and old.
Couples will enjoy a cosy and peaceful retreat while children will relish the novelty of sleeping under canvas and sharing stories late into the night with mum and dad close by. Similarly, yurts are the perfect options for hen and stag parties who want to treat their bride or groom to something unique while groups of friends can enjoy catching up huddled inside.
If you’re a lover of festival-style décor and rustic interiors, a yurt may just be the dream accommodation you have been searching for! Not only are the insides of these gorgeous abodes styled to the highest quality for a countryside getaway, but their outer appearance is also charming and fits perfectly with the surrounding scenery. While multicoloured bunting, glistening fairy lights and lanterns and hand-crafted furniture are all part and parcel inside, crisp white canvas, chunky rope struts and patterned wooden decking complete the look outside!
