Glancing over the undulating hills and
dales of Mid Wales, you’d be forgiven for thinking this is a place where
humanity has yet to step foot. Derwen
Yurt sits quietly on a hillside north of Welshpool, so quietly you’d barely
know that this romantic retreat is there at all. This yurt caters for a couple, with fantastic
facilities including a shared hot tub, a wooden cabin housing a fully equipped
kitchen, an individual bathroom suite and a Finnish sauna. But the most impressive detail of this site
is its tranquillity – although there are two other yurts on this site, each is
secluded enough for a feeling of privacy and cosiness. Derwen Yurt has its own private decking
facing the beautiful, fertile valley below, overlooking the oak, rowan and
birch trees after which these delightful structures are named. This area of Wales has often been compared to
Scandinavia, and you’ll definitely be able to indulge in all things hygge here
– drench yourself in oxygen in secluded woodlands, breathing in the freshest
air, taking time to feel dappled sunlight on your skin through the branches all
around, meditating on the sound of rustling leaves, being mindful of the call
of kites and foxes from the banks beyond.
This colourful couple’s holiday is as comfortable as it is consciously
wild – inside the yurt, you’ll find top of the range bedding, atop a reclaimed
wood king-sized bed. Lanterns and
candles create a romantic ambience, whilst the wood burning stove (which burns
fallen wood from the site) emanates a sepia glow over your evenings in.
This site takes glamping to a new level of sophistication and relaxation.
