It’s always great to spend some time away from the city in some of Britain’s most beautiful natural forests. If you’re looking for a woodland getaway in Sussex, our yurt hires are a unique way to sleep under the stars with the utmost level of comfort.
The Kushti Yurt hire is inspired by traditional Mongolian 'Ger' (aka yurt) with beautiful hand painted roof poles, pillars and door. There are many colourful ethnic textiles and carpets which adorn the walls and floors which give the unique yurts its ‘good vibes’ as described by the previous owner!
The many lovely comments in our guest book reflect this. We’ve had many wedding proposals and honeymooners in this very special Sussex woodland yurt hire!

There is also something deeply peaceful and meditative about our Kushti yurt hire. It is a magical space and occasionally you may see a deer or a rabbit enjoying the Sussex woodland.
Inside there is a kitchen area with double gas ring camping stove with everything you will need to cook and prepare any food.
The bed is a comfortable double futon, decorated with several colourful cushions. There is also additional seating in the form of hand carved stools, and a double futon sofa in beside the wood-burner. To the side of the yurt is a small table and chairs so that you can enjoy cosy inside eating on cold evenings.
Outside the yurt hire, there is a large picnic table and log stools along with an open fire pit with grill if you wish to cook under the stars! Kiln dried logs can be purchased for the Forest Garden shop.
Kushti yurt hire is approximately 70m from the shower/WC and washing-up sink. The shared shower/loo and washing up facilities consist of 2 x separate showers, 2 x WC's and handbasin and 2 x outdoor double washing up sinks and are located beside the car park.
