Wasdale Yurt Holidays | Wasdale Yurts | Wadale Yurt Camping Holidays
For the first time in the Wasdale Valley you will be able to experience a luxury yurt holiday in the Lake District.
Yurt in the Paddock sits proudly in the paddock at Rainors Farm B&B overlooking the Wasdale Valley in the Lake District. Raised from the ground on wooden decking, fully carpeted and with a window strategically placed so you can gaze out over Scafell Pike (England's highest mountain) and the Wasdale fells without even leaving your bed! Wake up to sunrise over Scafell, watching the landscape turn golden, take a gentle stroll around the paddock and breathe in the beauty surrounding you. Our second yurt, Yurt by the Stream, sits cozily tucked away in a secluded spot in the wild garden amongst oak and hazel trees, alongside a gentle babbling stream, but still with views of Scafell Pike and the spectacular surrounding landscape. Feel free to light a campfire in the picnic area of Yurt by the Stream for your “alfresco” dining and wake up to the gentle trickling of the stream and the happy chickens
Both Yurts are 18ft in diameter and will sleep two to five guests in one double bed and three single shiatsu mattresses. We make up the beds for you with fresh white cotton bed linen and coloured throws and all we ask is that you bring your own towels and toiletries and some charcoal for your bbq
Each yurt has soft, cozy, ethnic-style furnishings, hanging lanterns, bolsters to lounge on and are insulated with lovely organic, Welsh felt and have a clear roof crown to gaze up at the moon and stars at night
Not only will you have the luxury of electricity, a woodburning stove to keep you warm at night and constant hot water for tea/coffee, you will have your “own” toilet and heated shower room close by - not shared with any other guests
Both yurts have a BBQ, picnic table and chairs and all BBQ cooking/cleaning utensils are provided. Hearty packed lunches are available on request
**We now have a lovely new smaller 12ft yurt ("Little Yurt") which will accommodate two more guests on two single shiatsu mattresses, raised from the floor with wooden futon bases (can be put together for a double). This yurt is purely for extra sleeping space and although has a woodburner to keep you nice and toasty, it does not have electricity and we ask that you bring your own sleeping bags and torches. We only charge a nominal rate of £20 per head per night for the use of Little Yurt, to cover the cost of wood, shower/toilet facilities and cleaning/servicing. Little Yurt sits in its' own private space, slightly closer to Yurt by the Stream than Yurt in the Paddock, so the gentle babble of the stream can be heard, but within easy access to either Yurt in the Paddock or Yurt by the Stream washroom/toilet facilities**
Should the weather be wet and mucky there is a drying/utility room close by with boot-rack, Sheila-Maid clothes airer, fridge and washing machine for yurt guests use
The Wasdale Yurt Holiday is great for families and friends and with its' romantic ambience is equally good for couples, honeymooners and anyone in need of some "yurt therapy"
We offer free and although signal can be poor in certain areas, there are various "hot spots"
Many of our guests have celebrated their birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, mini moons and honeymoons here and have been "blown away" by their wasdale yurt holiday experience
Although we can accept dogs in the B&B and Cottage Suite unfortunately this is not possible in the Yurts
