Beautiful location, amazing yurt with the added luxuries of hot tub and sauna, which we used daily. Home cinema screen was amazing, watching a DVD in bed under the stars! Set on a quiet fishing lake the perfect escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. And if you want to venture out plenty of beautiful Cotswolds villages around to explore.
I took my partner away for her 21st birthday for 3 nights in late January 2015 The Island Yurt really is a perfect escape from everything! The Yurt was amazingly well equipped; everything from the bathroom and kitchen to the sauna and hot tub was clean and working perfectly. The views out of the windows onto the lake were stunning and the local wildlife was very friendly. The setting and surrounding are ideal to unwind and take a break from the stress and rush of every day life. Although there are other Yurts on the site, the way they are positioned means that you cannot see or hear them so you really do feel secluded. The glass dome in the roof meant star gazing could be done from the comfort of the bed with the fire flickering in the background really sums up the overall experience of the Yurt. Considering that the water, gas etc. was included, this really was great vale for money. All of this meant that after a romantic weekend away, we both returned fully relaxed. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic or relaxing getaway.
We went here for our honeymoon, stayed over Christmas. It was blissful, so unique and cosy. Uses all the facilities daily, even hot tubbed in the rain. I would say the yurt made our honeymoon the special week that it was. You must visit.
We stayed here on our honeymoon and wow!!!! We didn't want to leave, it was just perfect! All the mod cons mixed with its tranquil privacy was amazing, we will definitely be returning, can not rate this yert highly enough,we loved both the local restaurant the Beckford inn, but also a half hour walk away to ashton was a lovely pub the star, they were both brilliant, this is one perfect holiday home for any romantic break, and will always be our perfect honeymoon retreat :) it was fantastic x
Myself and my partner visited this yurt on the basis of wanting to get away from it all and to re-charge our batteries. We were both blown away by the yurt and the surrounding area (the pictures do not do this property justice) and its beauty. The home cinema, sauna, rowing boat and hot tub overlooking the lake made the holiday. I thoroughly recommend visiting the Beckford Inn whilst staying here, the service is exceptional and is located just up the road from the yurt itself (I would advise to book if wanting to eat here on the weekend). During our stay, we visited the likes of Broadway and did a cheeky bit of early Christmas shopping. It is hard not to fall in love with Broadway, it's beauty and it's enchanting selection of little shops and tea rooms. We also visited Sudeley Castle, another must for those wanting to explore and unravel some history. The views here are breathtaking as are the pretty gardens surrounding the castle. We both also really enjoyed feeding the ducks, swans and geese every morning over breakfast (something which us townies aren't quite used to) and spending the chilly evenings in front of the fire. Overall, I would highly recommend the yurt to anybody wanting some time out from reality and who are keen to explore. Thank you for a lovely stay, we had a cracking weekend and one we won't forget.
