After much research into the world of yurts, both online and through actual usage, we made the decision to go with a Mongolian style 'Gers' as the main accommodation for our guests at the Fir Hill.
Each of our yurts is made up of 5 material layers including a 12mm thick layer of 100% sheep wool felt, sourced from Mongolia, which keeps our guests warm in winter and cool in summer.
As well as comfort, providing our guests with as much space as possible was a priority. Our standard yurt has a diameter of 6.6m with floor space of 34.4m2. The side walls are 1.6m in height and the roof is up to 2.9m at it’s highest point. Most other glampsites in the UK use smaller yurts, but the extra diameter that we provide creates as much as an extra 8m2 of internal space!
Each yurt has its own personal cooking area with gas stove, cool box, running water for drinking and washing up, tea and coffee making facilities, food storage facilities as well as pots and pans.
"We couldn’t believe just how big the yurts were inside… plenty of room for our family of 5"
