Savannah Yurt

 Yurt in Sussex. Sleeps 4 + 1 additional @£35/night/person

Savannah yurt is 6 metres in diameter and was made by a highly experienced traditional yurt maker using locally sourced coppiced ash, hazel and chestnut. It features a large clear crown wheel that is elevated high with the steam bent ash poles. There is also a large window to the side that looks out through the woodland. The feeling as you walk in to the yurt is one of size and openness, whilst still retaining the intimate warmth of a hand made yurt.

The style of Savannah is ‘Out of Africa’ with big leopard print throws and sheepskin rugs. There is a large double futon bed under an antique tribal carved headboard. There is also a double futon sofa that can pulled into a double bed, and another single futon sofa-bed. (n.b. for the 5th person,  additional person and bedding charges apply, see extras)

The kitchen area comprises of a worktop surface with twin gas camping stove. All the utensils you need to cook and eat with are stowed in the large cupboard below.  There is an antique Moroccan table and matching stools to eat inside the yurt, and a couple of comfortable reclining chairs and hand made stools for sitting in front of the toasty wood-burner. 

There are many tea lights and lanterns provided to create a beautiful and romantic atmosphere. 

Outside the yurt is a large decked area to sit out and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the woodland. There’s a big picnic table below the deck and beside the large fire-pit.  Guests can bring their own kiln dried wood or buy it from the Forest garden shop. There is also a BBQ, and locally produced charcoal and kiln dried logs for the wood-burner are available at the Forest Garden shop.

Savannah yurt is located approx 150m from the shower/WC/washing up area.

Each of the luxury yurts and cabin are nestled in their own corner of secluded woodland offering guests privacy and tranquility. Dappled light and abundance of flora and fauna help create the perfect sanctuary.
