The Site and Yurts
Our site is set on a hill so a degree of physical fitness is required. We provide wheelbarrows/trollies for transporting your belongs and wood up to your yurt. As the kitchen area is shared we ask you to please clean up after yourself and try to accommodate the usage of others. All rubbish MUST be sorted and placed in the correct recycling bins provided. Outdoor shoes must not be worn inside the yurt, for this reason we advise you to bring slippers or other easy to kick off footwear.
The yurts, kitchen, patio and toilets are all no smoking/no vaping areas. No candles, paraffin lanterns or naked flames are allowed inside the yurts or kitchen.
Your property and personal belongings are your responsibility, please keep your valuables with you at all times. We can not be held responsible for loss or damage to property or vehicles while onsite. Any property left behind after checkout will be donated to charity or disposed of within 5 days if not claimed. Cost of the postage and packaging to return items will need to be paid for by the guest.
Fire and General Safety
Each yurt has a smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector and a fire extinguisher. Fireguards can be provided for the woodburners upon request. Firewood is provided with no additional charge and represents a significant cost to ourselves, we therefore ask our guests to be respectful of this by only burning what is required. Campfires must be kept small and manageable and never leave the campfire or wood burner unattended. All guests MUST read and follow the fire safety guide in the welcome pack. We take every care to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable holiday, but cannot be held liable for any accidents, personal injury, loss or damage or consequential loss during your stay.
