Showcasing the Lake District at its most enchanting, you’ll discover Long Valley Yurts’ Windermere location just a short distance from the vast natural lake itself, on a friendly farm site at the foot of the soothing Winster Valley.
You’ll feel at least half a world away from all your cares back home as you immerse yourselves in those magnificent natural views, and with an on-site farm shop and a charming pub in walking distance, the scene is set for a truly memorable break.
Better still, you get to relax and unwind in one of four beautifully furnished 18ft yurts, each sleeping up to six guests.
Ideal for families, two of the yurts are also dog-friendly, and for an extra treat, all come complete with their very own Scandinavian wood-fired hot tub, which you can book for a private soaking session under the stars.
Modelled on the ornate, traditional Turkmen style, and set on a raised wooden platform, each yurt has been expertly crafted from sustainable ash, and is covered with a thick, weather-proof poly cotton canvas that will make you feel unbelievably snug.
Inside, there’s an ultra-stylish and sumptuously welcoming Moroccan feel, with plenty of soft blankets, cosy cushions, and woollen rugs in vibrant colours.
A glowing wood-burning stove will keep everyone warm on cool evenings, while a small gas hob and every utensil you could wish for means you can keep the holiday packing nice and light!Keep reading

What the guests of Long Valley Yurts Windermere say
“My husband and I had a wonderful time staying in the yurt. We were in the hot tub every night, and with help of the information pack everything was very straightforward. The location was perfect with lots of walking routes close by, and a short drive to villages with shops and restaurants. A great place to stay!”
“We had a lovely week stay, really blessed with the weather which made the trip. The hot tub was well used and a welcome treat at the end of the day. We’ll definitely visit again soon.”
