Yoga Yurts - Kent
Yoga Yurts is a business, a home and a way of life. We live on a farm in Biggin Hill, North Kent, in a collection of yurts. We decided to live in this way to satisfy a need in us for more nature and a yearning for a connectedness to the land around us. We both grew up in the city and felt that it wasn't our natural home. Creating and sharing space has been a constant theme for us both for many years so in 2005 we decided to open up our space to others and began running yoga days and yoga retreats. Although feedback was great we found that the retreats depleted our energy in a way we couldn't have imagined and therefore we decided to concentrate on one day activities. On Yoga Days we open up our home; we share our space, our yoga and a different way of life with those who come to visit.

It is ideal for families with children, for people who gently want to try canoeing, for bold adventurers who've done it before, and for everyone who loves the water and an amazingly beautiful place like the Dart.
Jersey Yurt Holidays

We are a family run business offering guests a high quality of accommodation and facilities, whilst keeping things as environmentally friendly as possible, in keeping with our aim to maintain and protect our land.
We are open all year round, so you can choose whether you fancy a spring, summer, autumn or winter break. Whatever the time of year, you can rest assured that you will be cosy in your yurt ...perhaps with the fire lit, absorbing the breath-taking views, and watching the stars at night, through the clear roof wheel.
The Yarlington Yurt is not only a great place to stay, but the latest stage of an ambitious project that began back in 1782, when Yarlington House was built. George III apparently remarked, as he saw the original building going up on his way from Weymouth to Longleat, that the owner was, "a bold man, to build a house there." But as the trees grew and the gardens were expanded, that boldness proved visionary. To the walled kitchen garden built at the same time as the house, Count and Countess Charles de Salis have added touches of their own such as the ha-ha wall and the sunken garden at the far end of the lawn, pleached lime trees and now their grand yurt. It's a beautifully decorated two pod set-up, in a private spot behind the kitchen garden, looking out onto the gentle Somerset countryside. It comfortably sleeps four in two pods. A bespoke kitchen and bathroom tent and beautiful grounds help complete the ideal family retreat with that little touch of luxury. We think George III would have approved.
